Howzit peapo!

I'm on a creative high after the last Tiki Art Swap and the regional theme 'PNG' sucked me in with a passion! Absolutely limitless in concept and no restraint of direction... MINDBLOWING!... and the variety of interpretive submissions proved that...abstract, traditional, modern,or whatever artistic approach... every entry was a powerful image and soulful mirror of each person that hit the deadline.

That said, I searched back to see how the Tiki Art Swap began and I'm looking forward to the next one. In my research I found "Tiki art swap #4 - Vintage poly pop menu cover inspired art".

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=27949&forum=7&hilite=art_swap

This art swap theme appeared to have mass interest from a lot of folks...a limitless concept and plethora of resources...a vast sea without a horizon to sail! Somehow it became vapor and like the mid century tiki palaces we all worship...ceased to exist.

I propose a revival of this long lost art swap theme and pay homage to the imagery that is the foundation of our tiki community.

Are you inspired to take this challenge???

Vintage Menu Poly Pop!
...pssst...(this includes Tiki Bob, cannibals and all themes suggested by Alohastation )

Ahhh yessss... the vintage menu tiki swap. Many moons ago a group of artists got together to create works based on vintage menus, and THEY WERE NEVER HEARD FROM AGAIN! *maniacal laughter*

Seriously, I do remember this one fizzling out. I remember specifically because I didn't have any good reference and was freaking out! I'm still behind it, or the animal theme. Just gimme a direction and a deadline and I'll start pushing the clay!

It sure did fizzle, and I'm really not sure why. Maybe it just wasn't the right time for a swap?
I originally suggested that theme specifically because I thought it allowed plenty of scope and everyone would be on the same footing resource-wise. Between the incredible eye-candy of
Arkiva Tropika (warning - do not click on the "menu" tag unless you have a good connection, as it loads every menu in AT onto one page!) , Critiki and this very site, there is a ton of paper ephemera posted online. Not to mention the Book of Tiki and Tiki Modern, which most people here probably have access to.
Pretty much every type of traditional tiki has been illustrated on a menu at some point, along with saucy wahines and buff kanes - but if you want to get a little more offbeat (I know I would) there are some of the most whimsical and bizarre poly-pop creations you will ever see (including cannibals!).
That said, I am digging the animal theme a lot - but if there is still interest in a Vintage Menu theme I'd love to have a crack at it again!

After looking over the websites Paipo posted...
I think the vintage menu theme would be really cool...
There are many thoughts that come to mind with this theme.
I think there would be some really cool original ideas spawned from it...
I vote....Yes!!!
