Well, I've been waiting too too long to finally do a mug, and after seeing the way my logo tiki for Tabou Tiki Room in Berlin turned out, I was obsessed with making my own mug. This green mug below is from Tabou in Berlin. The mug on the bottom, "Fatutu" is my new mug based roughly on the tiki in my painting, "Death of Pierre Riviera" which is in Tiki Art 2 in SF I'm producing the mug myself, in my own workshop, and I'm going to produce less than a 100, maybe only 50. As soon as the first dozen are finished, I'll decide how many of this design will be made.:
If timing works out, Falling Cocos, will be hand-pulling a new serigraph based on "Death of Pierre Riviera". It'll be a big print, and I think we're only making 75 or so. I'm hoping to have the first dozen Fatutu mugs ready for Hukilau in 2 weeks, but we'll see. Pierre Riviera was a French explorer who tried to conquer the jungles of Papua New Guinnea in the 30's and never made it out...
I've also started the sculpt on the second mug of the series, and its based on a little someone in the upper left of this painting below only he's wearing a little palm frawn hat:
