Ok, so, technically, she's not a tiki. However, this is my salute to all the 50's Marwal busts, head vases, ethnic chalk and ceramic busts, as well as Cosmo De Salvo (the Bali Beauties illustrator). And, besides, no one did one. She has simple, more graphic details, glossy skin and face, textured hair, one color bronze colored glaze. Sip your cider thru the opening in the back. And of course, the obligatory tiki necklace.

Aloha everyone out there in the world of tiki. My name is Javier, and I am a graphic artist, and a bartender at the Rendezvous Tiki Loungs in Kenosha, WI. The owners, and co-workers told me about the contest and thought it would be a good piece for my portfolio that I'm building to get into a graphics college. Hope you enjoy my work. Bottoms up!

Just found out about this today!
No idea how to "host" images...so I
sent a Jpeg of my (done in 1/2 hour)
King NepTiki rendering (with seperate
chrome trident!) to the Munktiki website.
This is my own little tribute
to the old Pacific Ocean Park.

ok so my lazy ass forgot to do this before the last day (I am good at that) so use lots of imagination and here are my two entries......pieced together from pats I found
This first one is a tiki god with a mans body half of the body is traditional tribal styled tattoo the other half is retro tattoo of a wahine pin-up drinking from a mug (Shecky?) the idea was to represent both the traditionalist and the neuvo tikiphiles
This one is a concept I had......we do a drink menu wrapped around a mug with each mug being the best of the mug competition (not the ones I used as fillers) then the text would read name of mug and who designed it........this way everyone gets in on the design.......but it may be too hard to do as well.......

Here is my final tinkering. Back by popular demand is MachTiki's LEMOAI, except this time he's turned into a 3D Volcano God.
He should be sculpted just deep enough so that a sugar cube soaked in 151 will fit into his noggin. Think of the hours of fun you can have burning up Hanford's head! But don't limit your thinking to sugar, sweetie...how about incense? Love notes gone bad? Well, you think of the rest....

Here is my 1st attempt
It seems that many have taken Shecky on some wonderful adventures.
While on one of these adventures he wandered off and was never seen again.
Turns out he was captured by a tribe of rum soaked head shrinking tikiphiles.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Well here goes.
A couple of designs for the competition. I'm guessing everyone thinks I'm coming in late to protect my ideas, but truth is the day job is super busy, I wanted to do 3 designs.
This design is a warrior with shark tooth club and Ikika helmet.
This fella is a more traditional mug design, but using a trend from hot rodding of using green as an accent colour. Not steel wheels, fire wall and engine block this time, but eyes, mouth and chiny beard.
Hope you like them and nice job on all the other designs in comp. I'd hate to be a judge on this one.

Ok here is my entry. Not really a mug but more of a bowl. Here it is the Tiki Central Ohana Hut (or the hale that Zazz built)
This one is inspired by all the cool friends I have made here on T.C. This hale style bowl is designed to be shared with all your T.C chums. The glyphs on the side could be be changed out to represent the various interests of our community or maybe even embossed replicas of some of the other entries.
I suppose the whole thing could be made smaller and serve only one person but where is the fun in that?
I really liked all the entries and I feel sorry for the folks who have to try and pick a winner out of all these killer submissions. Good luck everybody! Thanks for a havin' this great contest y'all.

Here is my two meager attempts. There are some really great ideas in this thread!
I wanted to do a whole scene that wrapped around the mug without a specific front or back.
This one is a carving that went to Dr. Z on his birthday. I thought it would make a cool mug if it were tall and thin like a collins or mojito glass. Of course it would need a base that was flat and wide to make it stable.
Thanks for letting me use this Dr. Z!

What the heck - I'm no artist, and I'm way out of my league, but this is what I was able to whip up in half an hour...
He's my lucky tiki guy, complete with a string of cowries and seeds around his neck for that truly worshiped feel...hehe.
