Doug, that is pretty awesome and still in keeping with the original idea of the card.

Top notch Doug!!! I'm purposely not going to look at it again till the box arrives so my mind can be freshly blown.

I must say I'm really pleased that so many of you actually took the time to investigate the symbolism and meanings behind the cards instead of just taking wild stabs in the dark. Mahalo nui loa to all. Take note of these thoughtful artists who dug deep to produce successful work outside their comfort zone... In the hands of a such creative souls, Tiki knows no boundries.

Rock on kids! Everything looks great!

Just finishing my sketch up tonight & breaking out the velvet tomorrow. My card "Temperance" has inspired a mythological wahine. Pics soon (well, not TOO soon... but soon enough!) Wish I could make the show, but I'm looking forward to seeing photos posted!

Here's where I am with my piece. I need to punch up the colors a lot more, refine some details, and add in the text.

Ulafish is truely a girl wonder and she's still quite young so you can imagine she's only going to get better and better!!! I just new she was going to make some jaws drop.

I just recieved Doug Horne's contribution The Moon BE Boiling's Justice and SL Grice's Wheel... They are amazing to see in person!

Eric the Red's World Tikot piece is coming along splendidly as is Tiki Omar's Sun Mask.

Atomic Tony Tiki just sent his Tikot submission from his new home in Thailand 8370.05 away beating Tiki Racer in England by 2891.55 to be our most distant global participant.

Still waiting on delivered work from Crazy Al, Bowana David Lea, Babalu, Erin Joy, Heather Watts, McEvoy & Rodriguez, Atomikitty, 4WD Bill Collins, Brad Parker, Big Toe, Tiki Racer and UlaFish. While it's been a blast top see many of these pieces take shape online, this is not a "virtual" show. There are only ten days left kids.

Last one in's a rotten egg! Ha ha!

Very nice close-up pics, Hank!
Funny how it's mostly us locals that haven't delivered finished goods yet, huh?
I'll be finishing mine over the weekend, and plan to bring it down early next week.

I'm on the same track as 4WD. . . .

Procrastination = Inspiration!

Actually, I've been super busy with work, so I haven't had a chance to sink my teeth into this like I wanted to until now.
I've been keeping my eye on this thread, and I have been so inspired and amazed by the work coming in for this show!
Thanks everyone for posting progress pics and sharing your talents! Big thanks to Hodad too for letting me get in on the fun.
I absolutely LOVE the idea behind the show, and I was instantly inspired by the card I drew!

The Star: Usually depicting a woman with one foot on land, one foot in water. The water refers to the subconscious and memory, the land refers to the material world. She renews both. She holds two vessels, one pouring onto the land, and one pouring into the sea. Above her head shines the star. It is a hopeful card, and speaks to tranquility amongst tumult and being guided by invisible forces.

In my interpretation, I decided to take the idea of this woman with a physical connection to both the land and the water literally depicting her as a mermaid.
I wanted her to be a native of Oceanic origin, and appear strong, tranquil and a little wild.
I immediately thought of the Maori women, and so she became the Maori Mermaid.
I did a bunch of research, and got really inspired by the faces, the hair and dress, and especially the intricate carvings and patterns.


Here's the rough idea and the transferred drawing. . . all ready to paint! Yay!
I'm pretty happy with it so far. Looking forward to getting down to color.
Let me know what you think, and send along a little encouragement so I can burn the midnight oil and get this done!




Mahalo and Viva Atomica,

Suzy
