Soooo, is it okay to photograph art at an art show? Or just the people looking at the art? And, exactly how many people can drink out of a scorpion bowl anyway?

Well I dunno about photographing art upclose and ability to copy from artists...but sharing a few wide shots of the festivities couldn't hurt?!?!

I had a great time trippin thru the show! Darktiki there to greet folks, Squid passing out trophy mugs to all the 'orderly attendees'... rocks and stones used to create a waiting line for mug purchase admittance. One mug per person till they all ran out...fair enough.

Lot's of artist's there to chat it out with anyone interested in taking a prized work home! VERY cool but NOT too SCARY!! I had a great time!

ENJOY! Flip-flOp-fLipPp...

Tikis and Terrors II was a lot of fun. My wife and I stood next to Traveling Jones and kept an eye on our rock to make sure it didn't move from the mug line. Then Tiki Al came out with a huge flaming bowl ("Scarlet Sails"?). Very tasty. Made the wait go by quickly. We all traipsed through the line, and although the hand-painted brown mugs went too quickly, we did get a green mug in the crate, which is what I was hoping to come home with. Inside, lots of great art to look at. We then had some Bahooka food, visited, and tried various other drinks off the menu. The "Headshrinker" was my favorite so far.

I suppose the next event on my calendar is Crazy Al's Retrospective in October. I'm hoping I'll have a chance to pick up one of those giant #2 mugs he was walking around with at the Bahooka tonight. Now that's a mug!

Thanks to everyone who put on the event! The Bahooka is our closest tiki bar and it was nice to see it jam-packed with folks having such a good time.

i'd just like to say what a great time i had! it was a great event at a fun new to me location. i didn't get a crated version of Squid's mug, but i love the one i got. next time i'll be sure not to get lost and arrive later than planned. there was still quite a crowd when i got there and the people were very friendly. as a newbie, i'm glad to have gotten my feet wet in the community and meet some of you. thanks for putting on a such a rich and varied art show. i'll be looking forward to the next one.

Last night was fun. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit but it was my first time at Bahooka...I'll be back. We had some dinner and drinks...



...then went outside and joined the rock line. Ours has the drink umbrella (later I added a little palm/toothpick hut).



We got the crated mug. I also picked up Squid's Freaky Tiki's set too. I am really looking forward to the Squid/Tiki Farm skull mugs and monkey decanter/shot glass set they had sketches for...way cool!! My girlfriend bought herself a Soz print, the alien vs cowboy showdown. Lots of cool art!! Thanks to all those involved in putting on the show.

We didn't make it to Spikes though.

-John

Thanks to all who enjoyed my work last night . I met a lot of friends and now I can put a face to a name.A brief rundown of the night through my eyes,Adri and Grog each brought a small piece but were a big hit .Al's painting was amazing up close ,some rock people were still non trusting for their spot in line , Ernie looks good in al's shirt , Christian's head was spinning all night trying to make everyone happy ( by the way your Mom called and said you should take a nap! )Nick finally got out of the house and Squid has too many rocks in his car.Thanks to Christian and crew for making me feel so welcome , Tiki-Ray

Tikis and Terrors = a great time! - Bahooka's a great restaurant, exciting art, and what cool people! Highlights were meeting Nick from Tiki Magazine (finally) and getting to tell him his magazine is how I found the Tiki Culture "Tribe". Buying a drink for Baron Shivers. Hanging with Tiki Ray in the parking lot and hearing how he makes his awesome tikis. Talking with Ken Ruruzic about his cool tribal art (thanks for letting me rub the surf board!) Jawing with Tiki Tony about his carved birds and color choices, and meeting Christian (the darktiki ringmaster) and hearing his plans for future frightful events. Next year sounds to be awesome! I think I got to talk to Squid, but I'm such a typical shut-in artist who never gets out of his studio I was mostly too shy to ask everyone who they were. Just seeing the the art in person a powerful experience. Crazy Al's Black velvet piece, Squid's three tiki mug set, Ken's door panel... and of course a great hight light was sharing my first scorpion bowl with friends. Thanks Alan and Eric and Manuel, and everyone.

What a Great time! What a fun show! What a great venue!
Thank you Darktiki, for gathering us all together and letting us share our sicknesses together! it was sooooooo great to meet and actually hold conversations with TikiRay, Grog, Kirby,TikiShark,Crazy Al,Bif and Mike, and of course, Squid, and his way cool wife Sue! ( I saw Tiki Tony, but didn't get a chance to chat-boohoo!) It's such a trip to meet some of your heroes! So many friends, both new and old attended and it seemed like a splendid time for all! I took waaaaaaay too many pix, so I gotta prep them up and will post them in the next day or too. I do have 2 shots of the Cannibal (door panel piece) Tiki Shark mentioned. Squid liked that one too! I'd like to see you guys mud-wrestle for it!
Here's what the whole piece looked like....

and here's a detail of the mouth

Thanks again Christian for making Tiki History yet again!

Wow! Now that was fun! Susan (AKA Mrs Squid) and I had a blast. We really enjoyed meeting the other arteests, their respective spousal units (where applicable) and many of the TC Ohana. And we got to pig out with friends on some delish grub!

Now here's a bit of mug fun. Somehow (too many Island Itches?) I let an Artist Proof crated mug slip out into the general sales batch. So whoever got it, enjoy and pass it on to your kids. Tell 'em not to eBay it until you're pushin' up daisies so you don't have to watch.

Tiki-Ray, Kirby, C'Al, tOny, Johnny, Grog and that Krylon-fume-fueled Ruzic....you guys make awesome shit! Too much good stuff there to see. Come to think of it, it was all kinda getting wavy and soft-focused around 11:00 or so, but I digress.

And yes....we have your rocks The whole event was just an evil ploy to get free building materials for the waterfall we're going to construct in the back yard. Worked like a charm!

Oh, and Christian??? I agree....take a well deserved nap!

THOSE OF YOU WHO COULDN'T MAKE IT TO THE SHOW:
Keep an eye on this topic 'cause there's gonna be some interesting info coming up in the next couple of days........

hello all,

let me say that while my stay was short (previously planned B-day shin-dig for friend) I had an awesome time at the Bahooka. It was my third visit to the Bahooka and I love it more each visit.

Squid - Awsome T&T mugs (didn't get the AP - DOOH). Your sketches of your new TIKI Farm mugs to come were awesome. Let's push those babies thru the Tiki Farm red tape as I feel as if my like is now incomplete until they are resting comfortably on my shelf. In fact, I believe Squid's artistry to be of such a level that he should have total artistic control (hey squid - how was that - was that ok or did I lay it on too thick - just doing what I was told.

Tiki Tony - nice chatting with you - I will be contacting you shortly to place on order for a couple of your lamps (we may wanna original painting as well - can we work out a package price?)

C'AL - didn't see ya - but great black velvet painting. A little too spooky for my digs but definitely top notch.

Kirby - talked to you very briefly. Got one of your pendants. Now we gotta talk about getting one of your pieces. Awesome, although i believe that me budget does not allow for such a large piece. Instead of that large rectangular shape, how about a nice tidy square?

Bartender Suzy - My wife and I fell in love with your coconut monkey paintings. Didn't see any prices but did but my e-mail on your e-mail list - when can we get one. My wife loved the monkey holding the baby monkey (you appealed to her maternal instinct). So bust out some more for public consumption and count me in.

Everyone else - great stuff with just too many talented artists to mention. Had a blast.
