Great stuff, everyone. Tiki and hot rod seems like an oxymoron, but on a pop cultural level the two complement each other so well, it seems like a natural combo. Especially the way each of these pieces were executed. Shawn and I are working on a piece right now but I don't know if we'll make the deadline.

They are both all about escaping life and having a good time. 50s rod culture is romanticised the same way as polynesian pop is (eg. American Graffiti). Maybe thats why they go so well.

Better late than never!

We got it done in time! Here is mine and Shawn's contribution to the Hot Rod Tiki theme.
Shawn drew it and I inked it. We wanted to get it posted a.s.a.p., but we are planning on painting it too...
Hope you like it!

Thanks,
Noah

This was a great subject. Here is a tiki that I did a few months back for a friend. It sits in the "flower pot" on her dash of a convertible Bug.



These were done for the local Ferrari dealership to be sold as T-shirts. Not really "Hot Rod" or "Tiki", but what the hell.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Is there going to be a September Creating Theme?? How about Tiki Self Portraits?
