Accepted to the Atomic Tiki Group Exhibition

In my previous post—yes, I know it's been far too long—I mentioned the call to art for the Atomic Tiki Group Exhibition over at Elroy Artspace in Northwest Portland. Well, I'm proud to announce that I submitted two pieces and they were both accepted to the show. So if you find yourself in Northwest Portland between the 2nd and 27th of August, stop in  and check out some great art inspired by the mid-century modern tiki craze.

In honor of the Atomic Tiki show, I'm presenting this tiki-themed classic Bugs Bunny cartoon, Wackiki Wabbit from July of 1943. The abstract backgrounds in this one are what I find really intriguing, and I don't recall anything that abstract being used before or since at Warner Brothers, so it's really unique.
