Hello, I'm Luigi! I'm friends with Ravenne and she's told me about this site a while ago but haven't had a chance to join yet. I look forward to sharing my tiki art in the Other Crafts folder in the near future. I'm still confused on how to navigate this site...so it'll be a while, but I can't wait!

PS. I am so lazy Ravenne is typing this for me.

See you all at the Tonga Hut! smiley face.

aloha everyone!
I was googling Tiki's and came across Tiki Central - AWESOME SITE! I've always been into Tiki stuff since I was young. My mother used to tell me all about how my great grandfather made a home out of driftwood in San Pedro, he started The Island Trade Store selling his findings as a professional beach comber and carving huge Tiki's out of feather stone.
By the way hi to Bamboo Ben my cousin - or something like that! It's been a while (Cala's son Ryan!)
Thanks for letting me join and I look forward to hearing from you all.

*thank the Tiki God's for spellcheck too!!!

Hello all! I actually made my first post in the locating tiki forum, but this one makes it official. Found this place searching for tiki images for a series of paintings I'm working on, I was shocked to find out not only was I not alone way up here in northern Michigan, but there was an actual tiki resurgence & I totally missed it! Any hoo if you ever find yourself in the north woods & hear exotica howling in the pines stop on in its probably me.

Hey everybody. Glad to finally post here a bit after wandering around the place for a few years. I think I've very slowly been working my way here. I've been collecting thrift store vinyl for a long time, always looking out for Hawaiian and exotica. I'm local to Atlanta, and Trader Vic's is a favorite spot. Other than Vic's, the only other time I've been to a real deal tropical drinks bar was a pilgrimage to Tiki Ti 2 years ago. (I shall return!) I've envied some of the Witco art I've seen around town, and once in a while pick up a mug at the thrift store. Even after getting into the Book of Tiki, I still just browsed here once in a while. Finally putting it all together and learning more and more from all the great posts here. Cheers!

Aloha to all you fab tiki fans! I've been collecting a variety of Tiki, tropical and Hawaiiana for a while and was recently turned on to your BB here by a fellow tikiphile. I guess it started for me when I was just a tiny girl listening to Mom and Dad's Martin Denny records in the early 60's and eating off Homeward House "Carribean" dinnerware. Between that and my grandmother's ultra hip Danish Modern furniture and barkcloth draperies my earliest fond memories are very mid-century modern, bird calls and drums, and the fabulous Tiki Room at Disneyland. Since I grew up in Orange County, CA, so grew a fondness for bitchen surf music and all the great nuevo-Polynesian architecture that was everywhere around here, from apartment buildings to restaurants and everything in between. So I'm in the process of re-inventing my home into a 40's inspired tropical surf shack. Too fun and way cool! Looking forward to getting to know you.

Ahoy Tikiphiles!

Not new to the forums and more of a lurker than anything else. Just wanted to say hi and give a big fat thanks for this awesome awesome forum of endless tiki related information!!

I started getting into Tiki around 5 years ago, along with my brother. Since then, we've built a 9 ft outside Tiki bar, hosted a couple luau parties (one for my 30th bday) and just recently, I bought around 30 vintage Hawaiian LP's and an old Audiotronic record player (the ones usually found in schools). So I think I'm starting to finally do some real collecting
Mugs are next on the list

I'm an artist who loves tiki related art and plan on doing a few pieces for fun. I'll update the craft thread when I make anything.

Well, that's it I think...back to more lurking

Hi there,
Name’s Steve – Been checking this site for a while and really dig the stuff I've seen here. Fellow carver Marcus (Tiki-Beat) put me onto it about a year ago.
I knew nothing about carving, but decided to give it a try. Bought some el-cheapo chisels and got into it. This is very very addictive. I attach a couple of pics of some small pieces I’ve attempted.
Always learning and TC is a great place to get ideas. I see some amazing pieces on this site – certainly a lot of talented people here.
Hope to carve bigger and better, yet lately i'm getting smaller and smaller.
See you round.

Aloha~ I am new to the site, and am REALLY impressed with all the talented artists.

I spent some time dancing in the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show @ The Polynesian Resort in Walt Disney World Florida. I currently dance in California, and the show I'm involved in has a very TIKI feel. It is a TON of fun, especially because my experience has mainly been in traditional Polynesian culture.

Anyhow... Aloha!

Hello, I am a part-time Tiki artist. I work on black velvet with oils. This medium is a natural for me since my most popular work in the past was with colored pencils on black paper. I like using a classical art technique and style with this lowbrow form of art. I've been a Tiki fanatic since I discovered Sven Kirsten's Book of Tiki in spring of 2002. I never thought seriously of doing Tiki art until my wife suggested it while we were lounging in our Tiki-decorated gazebo listening to Don Tiki and Combustable Edison in the summer of 2007. Her idea was brilliant, and I started immediately. My first painting was finished just a few weeks later. I've dreamed of being an artist my whole life, and have now finally found a genre I deeply care for.

Hi,

I am Bo. I have been collecting records I have been finding from Salvation Army and Goodwill. Some of them have been Hawaiian themed. Mainly Arthur Lyman. I have also been ripping the LP's to my computer and making mp3's or audio cd's. I can remove some clicks and pops, mainly the big ones, but some get to stay.

Bo

Aloha guy's

I live in the Uk and I and was so pleased to stumble upon this fine website, I have been having Luau's for the past couple of years now! My friends and family are getting used to it, they all have their Hawaiian shirts and leis at the ready, I just love the dressing up and the music and just the whole package of tikidom...

I am having a Luau for my sisters birthday in the summer, I have decided to try my hand at carving a Tiki head...I am pretty arty so I am a little confident but also quite nervous about the whole thing...I am also planning to build a tiki bar, I have already purchased some bamboo and some matting for the roof. will post pix when have started and finished...

Anyway guy's I cannot chat too long as I am trying to get some info off this forum to improve my Luau's and lets face it there is so much info on here...its great...
