Curiaus as to why there are no nibbles on this - is it because it's not the original ad? Or does my framing job leave something to be desired?

I thought it looked pretty spiffy. Suggestions?

Well of course if you had the real thing then maybe you would have got some (nibbles). But with your high starting bid, whos going to want it when it's not the original. I thought you said that you are all about originals, well what happen with this one. Just tring to make a buck on some other persons stuff, (not your own). Get real Tikifish, not everyone is going to like what you put on. I have not seen one yet, keep working you might do something good one day. Well maybe not. Oh and wooo who you have no nev. on ebay, you only have alittle over 100 feedbacks. Start talking when you get a few 1,000's. Also you glad you are on Tiki Central so you can plead to everyone that you are putting on an auction so we can bid, then when it's grap you what to know why no one has bidded. Get over yourself and get off your high horse.

although i think mad-tiki's tone is entirely too fierce, he may have some points, tikifish.

15 bucks is a lot of moola for a photocopy glued to burlap. i wouldn't mind owning a "high quality copy of the original" paul marshall ad on brown paper, but for 15 bucks?!?

Seeing the item at a starting price of $14.95 makes me question your previous statement about how you're not in it for the money.

i don't know how much you paid for the original ad or what you had to go through to possess it - minus that cost, you probably put around $3 tops (i'm guessing) & roughly 15 minutes into the manufacture of this object.

as simple as it was to make it, you'd probably yield a much better return (& come across as much more credible) if you put a few (or why not several?) of these babies on ebay for a much lower starting price. conversely, you could have put the one up for auction at a low price w/ a reserve to see what the item would fetch.

i like your art (& LOVE SHECKY!!!) & have even bid unsuccessfully for one or 2 of your paintings on ebay - & oh yeah, my wife loves the dress she got from you!! i eagerly look forward to you sharing your newest of creations on tiki central & have always thought you did an okay job at pricing your stuff - but seeing you play up the "60's Paul Marshall Tiki Mug Ad Hawaiian Decor" that you have for auction might make me hesitant to view future items that you may share on tiki central.

i hope you don't think i'm harping at you. i'm all for selling one's wares & lately i've posting messages about things that i have up for auction on ebay too...& i think your idea of framing a photocopy of the ad on burlap is clever. i would just hate to see you lose your edge or credibility, in addition to the good reputation that i think you have & that i think you deserve.

Madtiki, you're WAY out of line in that last post. Tikifish was just curious why no one "nibbled" (appropriate for a tikifish!) on her item and she was asking for suggestions to make it better. I don't think she is on any high horse. You don't have to like her art, but there is no need to be nasty about it!

This is totally out of line. All she did was ask for thoughts on why nobody wanted it and you run in like a bull in a china shop insulting and calling names.

Last I checked, common decency and respect is still the rule of thumb, even in cyberspace.

I think Mad Tiki does have a point ! (Gallery of Shame -topic, Shag copy) It seems like a few others and myself where the only ones who felt like it wasn't right about all the bashing of that poor artist, especially since that person was not able to defend themselves, they probably have no idea at all about the crap that was said about them !!!!! I did check back to see who started that whole conversation, kinda of funny !
I don't think any hating is cool, but if this is totally free discussion, then all is fair. There has been some really mean post on here, so I don't think Mad-tiki is the first to have a strong opinion about something. And I have to say he does seem to speek his mind whether it is popular opinion or not, which does take some balls.

Oh, Sorry I forgot to give my opinion on the topic! I personally think the focus of your piece is drowned out by the burlap backing. The shades are so similar to the ad that there is no contrast to really show the main focus of the piece. The burlap is over powering. So I think if you did a black or red border to make the ad pop that would show off the ad a lot better. The ad is awesome but it doesn't look completed. Maybe frame the ad with painted bamboo or wood frame border. You'll have a true focal point and your eye won't wonder to the edges.
Also I sell a lot on ebay and have found a lower price to get the interest does help, I try to start everything under 9.00 and let the bidders make the price, especially on items I don't have an investment in. My tiki and poodle bags start at $6-9.00 and I am never disappointed with the ending price. Just my opinion, hope it is helpful !!!!!

johntiki,
it seems to me that last year during late summer/early autumn there was a lot of mean-spirited posting going on also.

Thanks Heto-Tiki, that was the sort of reply I was looking for about the piece -was it priced too high, were the colours off putting, etc. I wasn't complaining, I was just curious.

I made one exactly the same for myself and liked it so much I thought I would make more. Apparently I have particular tastes!

Let me state for the record that I did not disagree with Mad-Tiki, only with his tone.

Free discussion is wonderful, but name calling and insulting is merely a waste of time and accomplishes nothing.

The discussion of the Shag rip-off artists is not relevant here, in my opinion. Tiki Fish FRAMED a found object (or a photocopy of a found object) and put it up for auction. The other people painted copies of Shag paintings and put them up for sale. Those other "artists" were copying not just style, but content, composition, and in some cases even colors (albeit rather ineptly). There IS a difference.

-Mike

Mad-tiki,

Are you saying that because others have been rude that excuses your rudeness?
