OK sorry for my bad drawing but getting what was in my head on to the paper was pretty tough.

Many of us have been upset, angered, or passionate about at least one thread through the years but then there have been the times TC makes us laugh so hard tears come to your eyes....this was my inspiration for "Strait Shooter"
Hold him up and he's angry, nostrils flared, spitting mad, eyes blood shot from staring at the screen but turn him over and he's laughing so hard he's crying.
As you can see from the less detailed side view, there are two drink containers, one for a cocktail like a Mai-Tai and the bottom one large enough to hold a chilled mixed shot (do I hear a shot contest in the future) or maybe a fine rum for sipping. Pick your poison or your mood.
I'd love to see him in a mat red...the color of passion

I haven't posted anything for a long while, and there's nothing that focuses the mind like the last minute...

I only have one concept for the mug. The monkey behind the tiki represents the monkey-like quality of TCers. That is, that we are fun, love to wear the fez, love tropical drinks with umbrellas, and are attracted to shiny mug-like objects. He is sitting on a human skull as a reminder to anyone who challenges the tiki gods. Also, we all really seem to like the headhunter mugs (or the straight-up skulls) so I wanted to incorporate that into the design, without being a skull mug re-tread. There is also a bit of the savage animal Vs. refined hipster conflict symbolism there... The tiki is on the front of the mug because Tiki is the first thing that Tiki Central is about...I mean, really, think about it....

I tried to limit the color palette to approximate the glazes that the mug should have. It would be a low relief, and there would be some extras glazed on (like the red for the fez). The first one is in a "rolled out" view. The second one (the quick and dirty one) shows a bit of the relief that it would have. Personally, I don't like mugs that are really deep relief, or shaped weird...to drink out of. This mug should be something that you would want in your collection, but not something that you would not feel comfortable holding at a gathering (or would have those hard to wash recesses...you know, that catch all the pulp...)

Anyway, everyone's mugs look great, this has been a great creative "kick in the pants" for me. I hope we can do more of these....

Mahalo.
Jared

OK here is my mug design "Merkin" I would guess he would be roughly 7" tall and about 2.5" is diameter. On the back, I wouldn't mind if it had its name on it or not. Hope you like.

Time is running out, so I'll give you my final 2 sketches.

The one on the right would/could have a colorful hula girl in the mouth.



Great designs everyone, may the best mug win!

These drawings are just quick and dirty, but here are a couple ideas to throw out there...

How about a Milan Guanko homage? We have always loved his carvings and felt that his style was under-appreciated or at least under-represented. Maybe do the Tiki Central monicker in relief at the base like an old Hawaii Kai or Aloha Hut mug?


Also in the vintage classic vein is a PMP style mixed with the Chin Tiki guy holding a sign:


He sure seems happy, no?

We are not quite sure what the hell this is... part simple, stylized, Tiki Bob-esque, part masked Tiki do-gooder or super hero (Green Hornet?). Probably not best not to scribble drawings and mug ideas under the influence of several Chef Shangri-La Mai-Tais... Whatever:


-Duke and Amy
