How about some downloadable TC prints? The catch is, we need some budding artists to get in and design some. A few artists on here have done this previously (with their own work), so Im stealing their idea...

And don’t get me wrong, doesn’t have to be painting/sketch etc. Could also be in the form of a cool picture of a home bar, tiki carving, tiki mug, or even just a crystal white beach or tropical green jungle etc etc.

A lot of you folks make money from stuff featured on TC, this is a nice way of giving something back.

I was thinking of having them available in a pdf format. That way you can have maximum clarity with minimal file size. It would be great to have the TC logo on them too. Can anyone proficient with photoshop help with this aspect, and convert them to pdf?

Hanford has given the general idea the okay, but I haven't sussed out the full details of how this might work, so suggestions are welcome.

So, who's in?

I'd like to be involved, happy to put a peice together. Is there a theme/direction you're looking for?

What's your deadline?

Can also help with the watermarking/branding in photoshop and making the pdf [balancing file size and quality].

PM or reply.

Cheers

I'd be interested in doing something for this. Any rules and regulations? I don't want to create something that is going to be abused.

Basically, this idea came from not having anything TC related at home. Ive got artist prints, mugs from bars, carvings from carvers, exotica records - but Ive got nothing from TC at home. Yet for many of us, TC is our main source of tiki goodness. So I thought how good would it be to have a TC print? A couple of guys on here offered free prints, and I really liked that. The natural progression from that is there are plenty of talented artists on TC, why not have multiple prints and get folks to contribute? That way people can chose a print to their taste, or get all of them.

Thats the idea behind it. The rest I am trying to work out as I go along...

So guidelines - no timeline on this, whenever you get a chance. As far as content - it should reflect TC and feature the TC website address or logo clearly. Basically, use the TC guidelines on the about TC page. That still leaves a pretty big range to draw inspiration from! The idea is that by featuring multiple artists work, we get a range of ideas for the prints. If you are unable to inlcude the TC logo (eg. you use a photo) we will work out getting one photoshopped in or something.

A carver might use a nice action pic of carving a log or one of their finished pieces in the garden, a collector might submit a pic of their tiki room with all of their mugs, a mixologist might take pics of their coolest cocktails, or it could even be pics from a contemporary bar or pics from your holiday to the South Pacific (with a nice white sandy beach), or the artists can just paint something up.

Does this help clear it up a little?

As I said, Im still working this out... suggestions, advice and help are welcome!

Mate, I counted 3 with tikis

Some very nice work there, welcome to TC too!

I see in the new members thread you've poked around here a bit already. Keep poking around (theres no time limit for these) and when you've got some ideas/concepts Private Message me (so we can make sure we dont have multiple artists doing the same thing). Sweet

I was going to ask if he had an Illustrator based version of the logo too. I'm thinking up ideas, and working on sketches (okay not really, but I'm planning on working on sketches after this weekend) Hopefully we'll have somethign for the TC Ohana soon. Back to the grindstone.

Hi guys,

This is a really cool project Hewey is doing; sorry I've been so slow to get the hi-res logo uploaded. I do not have it as an illustrator file but I do have it in a Photoshop file done with Photoshop's vector tools, so it is resizable. I hope to have it uploaded soon.

Hanford

Soooo, like we email the file to you Hewey, after we stick on the High rez logo? How big should these files be? Are YOU printing them out, or will it be a downloadable file that the TC folks can print out themselves?

At this stage I was looking at Tikiracer to handle the tech side of things. My original idea was to get the logo to him, so he can add them in as needed. From the sounds of it, Hanford will make the logo available to everyone, so if you are able to put it in, do so. As far as the file size Im not sure what Tikiracer can handle as far as converting to pdf. Obviously the higher res, the better the print. It will be a downloadable file so everyone can print one themselves, for nothing. Yes I will be printing them out too - for myself!
