Isnt Randy Bain the guy who moved to the islands to get away ? The rumor I heard is that his brother was the lead singer for the band Nirvana and he shot himself . Now that guys ex wife Courtney Love keeps hounding this guy Randy for money for court costs so he bailed to Hawaii to create art . Well, thats the rumor I heard .

There are quite a few amazing choppers, just in our group here in SD. Seems a shame, indeed to "narrow the field" at the expense of these other great local choppers being edged out by a guy who's tikis all look pretty similair. My wife even mentioned that when we ate at Mr Tiki. She said "You can sure tell the same guy did all of these tikis!"


Is it really necessary to put down one artist in an effort to promote a few others?
You can't really think that it's possible to put all the tiki artists in the world in one show, can you? Anyone who's any good will eventually get their time in the spotlight. At least a couple of the artists on the list for this show have never been in a Tiki Art Now show although they've been making tiki art for years! I don't hear them griping about it though. They know their time will come, as it will for any of the artists who make things people want to see.

I, for one, am really looking forward to seeing the work of the fantastic artists featured in Tiki Magazine's show!



That was in no way an insult.

Chongolio wears the cape...
It's pretty obvious...

Here's Tiki Farm's contribution to the show, shown below in wax & sculpted by long-time Tiki Farm collaborator Squid...

"The Goof" is patterned after the image found on "the original Christian's Hut" blue matchbook cover on page 133 of the Book of Tiki. This will be a limited edition production of somewhere between 100 to 200 each. We're not exactly sure of the quantity at this time as, although the event seems far away, we've still got to produce the master tooling & production tooling for the mug. We'll determine the final quantity a few weeks prior to the event and will make up the #'d coa's at that time.

Isn't Bosko kinda the "Shag" of Tiki Carvers in terms of popularity and profile ?
I love his stuff, whether it all "looks the same" or not. His stuff is very identifiable, it has it's own "bosko thing" that makes you know who it is right away. I like the minimalist approach to his stuff too.

It will be cool to meet him in person, if he's there.

Nick this is such a cool thing you're doing not only for artists of this or future events. By throwing these shindigs on Shelter Island a host of landmarks stand to financially benefit.

I can think of a half dozen vintage hotels to stay at for folks from out of town. They can pack their pedal pushers and rent a bike or scooter instead of a car ... zip over to Trader Morts for in room supplies, soak up the sun poolside at the Half Moon, sunset pupus and hi-octails at the Bali Hai and diner at the Tahiti! Keeping these places thriving BECAUSE of their thematic consistency will help spare them the fate of another local gem now merely a ghost of it's former self.

By 2008 historic Tiki in San Diego will be making its last stand on Shelter Island and I'm glad you're among those who realise the importance of producing regular exhibitions or performances there.

The same sincere enthusiasm from you that makes your mag legit will make your events best not missed.

I'm real excited about my working being in this show.

So excited I'm coming over to see it!

I'll be coming over with Tiki Chris, seeing the show, meeting the tiki crowd and hopefully going up the coast and taking in some more tiki sights on the way.

I'll post some sketches soon of the pieces I plan to put in the show.

See you there.

Mahalo WooHooWahine for info efforts you were nice enough to gather for us. I am excited for this event I enjoy the art shows most. I wish the sponsors of these events would be better about putting together host hotels etc. for those of us who must travel. I travel alone a bit & it's just to late at night to make the drive home. I know WooHoo is working on that & I will wait to hear more & hopefully book a room at a discount. THIS IS GONNA BE FUN! Hope to see you all there!

Aloha & WoooHooo! I've done a little homework and here's the info I have for you regarding accommodations. Humphries requires a two night minimum for the weekend and their room availability is very limited to rooms that are really pricey for that weekend. BUT...... The Best Western Island Palms Hotel (which is right next door to Humphries and within walking distance to The Bali Hai) has availability. If you are interested in staying their I reserved a Block of rooms at the rate of $175 for the night of November 2. Call 1-800-922-2336 to reserve your room. To get this rate mention Tiki Magazine Rate. This Special Rate will not be in their computer system until tomorrow afternoon. Feel free to PM me if you have any ?'s Mahalo!!
