Mahalo Everybody for your kind words of support!

ravenne: It took five very messy hours to crush the Cheetos into a paste with water and shredded paper, and then sculpt the tiki out of the resulting goo!
Murph: Yes, the mystery of the Rumpus Room Cheetos solved... and I guess my orange complexion too, but that just might be my natural pallor!
Kinny and Caroline: My fingers were a very sticky orange, and the goo totally stained my fingernails. I clipped my nails when I got home, and later Manuel found an orange nail clipping in the bathroom sink... freaky!
Zeta: Glad you like! Er... are there Cheetos in Spain?
GROG: Well, fortunately, this tiki is less edible than Kirby's Rice Krispy moai, unless anyone wants the extra roughage of the shredded paper!
Coco Joe: Uh-oh... don't want to think about what you were doing in yer youth to have orange nether-regions!
leleliz: Can I dare to hope my artwork edges out processed cheese snacks as one of your favorites, even just by a teeny bit?
Tiki Shaker: Mahalo! This takes something, I'm not sure it's "the cake"... although that does give me an idea for Twinkies tikis...
TikiG: Oh yeah, I guess it is Poly, and definitely Pop... not sure I'm pioneering anything, though!
Tobor64: The puffy Cheetos turned out to be eerily very similar in size and shape, so that was one of the easy parts!
Sabu The Coconut Boy: Fortunately, it didn't rain, but I think the plan was grab the art and head for cover if it did! The Cheetos dress would have dissolved into something much more revealing!
TongaTom: Thanks for your kind use of the adjective "tasty" to describe the tiki... up close, it did not look too yummy, especially as it dried out!
MadDogMike: Thanks fer clarifying what Coco Joe was up to in his youth!

Here's pix of the event today:


Here's the set up for the show:

A Cheetos dress, constructed and modeled by the lovely Maria (this piece was quite a big hit!):

A Cheetos spider and web (the spider was very cool!):

A screen print on a ground of ground Cheetos (it looked like orange velvet!).



One last shot of my Cheetos tiki... it looks gigantic in this pic!

I'll post a link to the promo clip when it's up on line!

Mahalo fer lookin'!
Yer pal,
Eric October
