Damn, I wish I could make it to one of these parties! I'm just glad to know a new magazine will be coming in my mailbox soon.

Doug, the cover looks great! Looking forward to seeing what the colors really look like.

Got a call from Nick Camara of Tiki Magazine, and he said that due to some trouble with the printing company, they won't be able to use Doug Horne's cover art this time, so they are going with the back up cover art by GROG.



GROG will have prints of this for sale at the Tonga Hut. 8 1/2"x11" for $85. Limited edition of 500. Get there early, because these are sure to sell out fast!

Ah-ha!
Based on the tiki art featured on the New And Improved Grog cover for this issue, I see how I figure in as the Up and Coming TIki Artist!

Doug's cover is AWESOME!
I'm thrilled beyond words to be in such great company in this incredible magazine!
YAY!!!

Nick called and said they got the problems fixed with the printer, so they are back to using Doug Horne's cover.

I don't know, Grog. You're certainly giving Mr. Horne a run for his artistic money with that super-lush "Oriental Trading Company Catalog" homage piece you created. Such use of color and layout... That stark white background speaks to my very soul! Were you channeling the photographic master Irving Penn when you thought of this? Oooh! The whole primitive moodiness of it has me all a-tingle!

What! Another Tonga Hut thread?...Doug, that cover is just stunning. You are definitely my favourite ever Tiki Mag cover artist of all time! (Sorry Ernie)

Cover looks great. The colors probably looked wacked out to you doug, but they're looking good to everybody else! I'll have some Tiki Oasis previews for sale! New Pupu platters, hopefully my new mug will be finished by then named "Pupu." I named the new mug "Pupu" because they misspelled my older mug, "Papua" as "Pupu" in Jay Strongman's "Tiki Mugs" book and I thought it was a better and funnier name for a mug! And I'll have the usual other flotsam and jetsam.

Grog's cover, while very artistic, can be misunderstood as a suggestion for Tiki Oasis room crawl decorations...so I'm glad we're back with Doug's cover.

Grog, love the cover you did, reminds me of a nightmare I had once.
A Party City tiki was chasing me all over the city and I kept spilling my Mai-Tai as I ran away from him, the horror ... the horror.

Wow, the colors got whacked on that jpeg.

Hopefully this will better represent the cover art.



Looking forward to fun times at the Tonga Hut.

Ok, the colors are still a little whacked but it looks better, damn jpegs.
