There was a huge interest in the PNG swap we just did. For those of you living under a rock, check it out here http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=32054&forum=18&start=0

A few ideas were thrown around for another swap theme. Travelling Jones was able to uncover a long ago forgotten swap theme of 'Polynesian Pop Menu Cover Inspired Art', and I think we should go with this. It allows a heap of flexibility in terms of subject matter and medium, and the more people involved the merrier!

Soooo, the art can be any medium you want. It can be based on a tiki/artwork that has appeared in a vintage poly pop menu, or you could even make a cover for a 'faux' tiki bar of your own creation.

THE DEADLINE IS THE END OF OCTOBER This gives you a full 3 months to get your ass into gear and make a piece of art. It also means you will be sending your piece in November, so if we left it any later it would coincide with Christmas shopping for many of us, so financially for many of us that is less than ideal.

The basics are:
* Participants all create an original piece of art on the theme
* The art can be anything you like (as long as it is original, no prints/moulded pendants etc), so it could be a painting, charcoal sketch, pastel art, a carving, a one off hand carved mug etc etc etc. Look at the link above to the previous swap to get an appreciation of the variety of stuff you could make.
* Post your pics on this thread of the art you are making - to motivate everyone else to get involved!
* Post pics of your completed piece by the due date!!!
* All of the participants names will go into a hat, and be drawn out together. The list of swapping partners will be posted here. PM your swapping partner and exhange your postal details. Send your piece off and watch the mailbox like a hawk waiting for your art to arrive!
* Note - there is a reasonable chance that your creation will be sent overseas! You are responsible for postal costs of the item you create, so dont enter a 6 foot carving unless you're prepared to cover postage! One participant in the last swap got quoted an exorbient amount to post their piece with Fed Ex. By sending the same piece with US Postal Service, they saved themselves a huge amount of cash.

It's up to you if you want to do a replica or interpretation of a classic restaurant "logo tiki" (which will probably be the route I go), work from some design element on the cover, or (more for the painters) maybe create a fictitious cover in the style of the old ones. Perhaps it could be focused around some of the typefaces used.

As for carving - if you aren't up for doing something outside the square, there are plenty of teko, tang, ku, PNG and moai images to be found on these covers. It would be great to see some of the more obscure 50s/60s gems interpreted by the swap artists.

Here's a few of my favourites just to get some theme vibe here in the thread:

You're a legend hewey...we could've seen that other thread go another 10 pages discussing the merits of the various suggested themes I reckon
Thanks for saving me the trouble of digging up that old post too. There is definitely something for everyone in this theme - you just have to know where to look:

Arkiva Tropika
(Select "Menu" tag from the list at left, but be prepared for a long wait as it will load every image into one page!)

Critiki Menu Images

Tikiroom.net Menu Archive
(Highly recommended, lots of rare and cool stuff)

....and I also seem to remember some nice vintage graphics in those books...you know the ones

I will state for the record right here and now - there is no way I'm missing out this time! Might even be time for me to try my hand at a different medium?

End of October?? Too much time!! I would say end of September. If you can't get it done in 2 months, 30 more days isn't going to help.

And they're off! Going into the first turn it's MadDogMike by a nose.



I'm not sure who this guy is, Genghis Khan? A Polynesian genie? He shows up on the Skipper Kent and Zombie Village menus.




Wendy Cevola also made a mug of him, but in a different style.
