Australian White Ibis finds material for his mate’s nest at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. There are even penquins here! Many different things to sketch in this pleasant environment.
latest updates: Waikiki
This is an ink and watercolor drawing of people I saw on Waikiki Beach yesterday morning while enjoying my daily walk. A mixture of locals and tourists.
This is a typical weekend day at my beach. There is a wedding or two going on nearly every evening around dinner time.
Sharpie pen, watercolor and crayon
Kings Village is a small British-inspired multi-level shopping center in Waikiki. It is painted in red, white and blue with lots of flowering plants and charming architecture. I have not been here in a while, so I found a bench in the shade and drew what I could see from there.

A quick sketch of the International MarketPlace in Waikiki. This is a favorite spot for tourists to purchase inexpensive and interesting goods. Full of little blue roofed individual carts that sell jewelry and the like. Charming place.
This page is a result of a morning walk into Waikiki where I was attracted to the jumpsuit in the BEBE Store, and on the way back I met these strange looking black chickens and roosters in Kapiolani Park. The one with the yellow feathers was quite regal.
This is a slice of life in Waikiki this morning. I assume these are the Star Beachboys of days gone by. I colored this at home with acrylic paints.
These funky homes and cottages of old Honolulu are nearly gone and I like to draw some of my all-time favorites. In spite of how presentable my sketch made it look, this place has a charm all its own, with whirygigs and other paraphernalia cluttering up the place, but giving the house a wonderful character. I was delighted to find it still standing when I came to sketch it this morning. The street name “Tusitala” means “story teller” in Samoan. Robert Lewis Stevenson adopted this as his local name when he spent time here in Honolulu.
