Hi folks. Just wanted to add some images from the book and say that it would be great to make this night not just a book launch but also a celebration of the mug makers and their art. I'm hoping that a lot of the guys whose mugs are featured in the books will be able to attend and sign books too....anyway, I'll post more updates soon...Mahalo, Jay.

Yes, we were real lucky in having some fantastic photographers work on the book. The great thing about all the photographers is that they are all big Tiki fans and collectors, so their love of the subject matter really shows in their work. All the individual credits are in the back of the book but I and the publishers owe a big thank you to the hardworking Jonpaul Balak, Dan Cevola, Duane Jones, Sven Kirsten, Martin Shaw, Nick Grant, David Dye, Greg Burmann, Martin McIntosh, Annene Kaye and all the mug artists who supplied photos of their creations.

Jay,
Thanks for the update.
It poses the question that I ask here, what mug artists are going to make it to the opening?
Hopefully this opening will be a unique opportunity to get a large portion of mug artists under one roof. I know I am looking forward to getting to interact with the artists and get some signatures, and hopefully meet a couple of them that i have only spoken to on here. I also look forward to getting a chance to actually read some passages, as the little preview at Tiki Ti a couple weeks back was a quick flip through.
We have company in town, but we will definitely get to the show for a bit. I want to take this spot to thank Jay for the monstrous amount of man hours and passion he put into this book, and his efforts to show what an interesting, varied and unique art form this is. I also want to thank Sven, Greg, Annene, and Jonesy for their beautiful photography and their efforts to make my stuff look good.
Hope to catch a lot of TCer's there and make with the conversation while waiting for the opportunity to get some signatures.
p.s. for fans of the Ghastly Ones mug put out by Tiki Farm, I spoke to Norman, AKA Baron Shivers (designer and sculptor of that mug) earlier today. He is going to try and make it to the release party early, but is hosting and the Ghastly Ones are playing at the Bordello that night, so it will be a quick stop if he can make it.

Wow, I'm all giddy this morning for sure that one of my mugs made the cut to be included in this book. It truly, truly is an honor to have my work shown along side all of these heavy hitters.

I'm going to try my best to get up there for this book signing. It would be a hoot to hang with all of you guys.

JonesEy...your da BOMB! Nice shooting brother.
