THIS JUST IN...

Here's the link to the video for this event!

Aloha everybody!

In what may be the final step of Tiki De-evolution, I created a tiki out of Cheetos.
Break.com is producing a promo spot for Cheetos, featuring artwork created from the nuclear-orange snacks. My neighbor works for Break, and suggested me as one of the four artists involved. I proposed a tiki made from Cheetos, and they liked the idea!

The creation of the tiki was taped a couple days ago, and all the artwork goes on display at an outdoor art event (also part of the promo spot) today at 1pm on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. It will be set up in front of Footlocker, at 1300 Third Street Promenade (between Santa Monica Blvd & Arizona).

I know it's horribly last minute, but that's, apparently, how I roll.

Here's the tiki near completion. it's 32" high and 14" wide, made from a paste of Cheetos, water, and paper... yummy!


I'll try to post more pix soon!

Don't let BigTikiDude near it or he will eat the head off of it before the judging begins. He's done it before.

Awesome, you do the coolest stuff. You already create tons of tiki art out of nontraditional materials, but this takes the cake!

Tiki-DEVOlution?!!? uhm, okay - this IS pure tiki-pop expression.

Leave it to Eric to pioneer THIS poly-pop genre

Bloody genius this is...can a Velveeta tiki be very far behind? Spam moai?

(and yeah! Murph was right - this explains the bag of Cheetos at the Rumpus Room last night)

I can't be in Santa Monica in person today but I'm there in spirit. Cheers!

An instant classic! I can't imagine your sorting process to find all those symmetrical Cheetoes for the border.

Sorry we couldn't make it today Eric. It's good to see a larger photo of that tasty looking tiki.
