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.
