UPDATE - NEW INFO ON TOP 5/2/12
Votes were pretty evenly spaced between several themes. "No theme" seems cheating to me, I like the challenge of a theme. "Animals" seems a bit too broad, almost makes a mockery of a theme. Cannibals would be fun but has been pretty well covered. That leaves Pele/Fire/Volcano, which happens to be my favorite (take note - when you volunteer to organize a Swap you get to pick the theme ) It is sufficiently "Tiki", seems broad enough to provide inspiration and variety but narrow enough to provide structure. I can't find that this theme has been used before, at least not in the past 4 or 5 years.

RULES - mostly a re-hash of previously posted Swap rules but here they go:
* Participants must make a original piece of art inspired by the theme specifically for the swap - no prints of previous art, molded objects etc. This does not preclude using a molded object and heavily modifying it.
* Each participant is only allowed to swap once. If you want to make more than one piece of art and allow your partner to choose, that is perfectly fine.
* The art can be anything you like, so it could be a painting, charcoal sketch, pastel art, a carving, a one-off hand carved mug, mosaic, diorama, fabric art, lamp, etc.
* Post progress 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!!! Only participants who have posted a picture of the completed project will be included in the drawing
* All of the participants names will go into a hat and will be paired together randomly on Wednesday, August 8th. If you are going out of town for Tiki Oasis, this gives you a week to get your package shipped before you leave. If you and your partner are both going to Oasis, perhaps you can swap at Oasis. The list of swapping partners will be posted here. PM your swapping partner and exhange your postal details. Please ship your piece as soon as possible, your partner is anxiously awaiting!
* 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 don't enter a 6 foot carving unless you're prepared to cover postage! If you have a big or heavy item or are shipping overseas, shop prices with different shippers (USPS/FedEx/UPS).

***************************************************************************************
ORIGINAL POST
It has been a year since the last Art Swap and it's time for another one. No one seems to be stepping forward to lead this thing so I'll take a stab at it.

For those unfamiliar with the concept, you make an original art piece (not a mold or a print) inspired by the theme in any media ~ could be a painting, digital, carving, ceramic mug, beaded, knit, sewn, mixed, diorama, whatever. At the end of the Swap, you are paired at random with another participant and you swap art ~ you get theirs and they get yours. There are a few rules to ensure everything works out, I will post those shortly.

I think the week before Tiki Oasis is a good time for the drawing, that gives us just over 3 months and a chance that you can swap face-to-face with your partner at Oasis.

Most recent Swap themes have been;
Ladies of Tiki
Papua New Guinea
Polynesian Menu
Shrunken Heads/Headhunters

Suggested themes have been;
Animal
Cannibal
Mixed Media
Mini
Life/Death
Skull/Bones
Water/Sea
Nautical/Pirate
Marquesan
Pele/Fire/Volcano
Tangaroa
Ship Wreck
Music - Exotica/Hapa Haole/etc
Martin Denny

What do you think?

I think you are terrific for taking this on. These all sound good so I'll wait to see what the crowd is in favor of. Wendy

Got a PM vote for "how about artwork based on exotica, hapa haole, or other tiki-type music, either the song title, or the sound and feel of a song?" Or album cover

Mike is a great guy to take this on. I'm open to any theme... but cannibal gets my creativity all a-tingly.

Good point Dawn. I'll let this subject ruminate for several days and see if we get some input. Marquesas is the frontrunner right now but that might be a little narrow, maybe include all of French Polynesia (Marquesas, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Tuamotus)?

My vote is for Cannibal or Animal.

Remember you can make your art any style as long as it is Poly-pop in basis.

Mike... You rock!

Hmmm... Some really great ideas here.

I like Volcano/Pele or Water/Sea or Animal...
Those each provide lots of options to keep the creativity going.

Peace,
Jason

Maybe we should do Cannibal in honor of our fearless swap leader, MadDog Mike, and his teardrop the Tahitian Cannibal!
