Besides location, what have some of the other swap themes been?



Pretty sure we did a 'hot rod tiki' theme, or a 'surf tiki' theme? I cant remember exactly 'cause we also did some themes for just creating some art (not an actual swap). Other themes could be - tikid from the BoT, tikis inspired by vintage tiki bars (could be inspired by a tiki carving in a bar, a menu design etc etc). From memory, a few people have found it difficult to get involved in the more abstract themes, but the 'location' themes have always been popular. Have a think about what kinda themes you'd like in the future.

How big an art piece?.....any limits? or averages?
Sounds like something I'd be into as well!



There's no specific size limit, but as Ive said, you may have to post it overseas! In previous swaps a number of the carvers have done pendants, which are obviously pretty small (perfect for overseas postage) but still are awesome pieces of art. Someone like sophista-tiki might do a watercolour painting on paper, but that can be easily posted rolled up in a hard tube. It all depends on what medium you work in!

Also, when you contact your respective swap partner, let them know of any customs and/or taxes things they should be aware of (eg. in Australia, anything valued over $25 we're supposed to pay tax on!).
Okay, seems to be a few votes for PAPUA NEW GUINEA style, so we'll go with that. The deadline is the END OF JUNE. This gives plenty of time to get your artwork done! As Ive said, please post your progress pics and finished pics in this thread - to get everyone excited about what art is being created! At the end of June, I'll draw up a list of everyone who has posted a COMPLETED piece, and I'll people know who's swapping with who.

Please note - everyone enters this swap in good faith that you will actually send your piece to your partner. There is a risk you could send your piece and not get something in return. This is a risk we all take by participating, but the folks on TC are such fine people I dont expect this will ever be an issue

Some PNG stuff for inspiration. PNG is rich in culture and history, do a little googling and research, you’ll find some awesome stuff!

I'm in

Here's a motivation pic


He's gonna be about 6" tall, 2 1/5 around. Saw a pic of a witch doctor carving yesterday. So I'm gonna try that but I'm not gonna look again, so it's png influenced but not copied

I found a craft store with good prices on basswood blocks and they had a sawblade to fit my new xacto handle. The sawblade works decently, you just gotta work around and try to cut against the grain so it'll bite, alot quicker than an #11 though.
