Hello all Tiki-friends-artists-creatives

Within the Tiki-community there are a lot of creative individuals. And as many artists often do they have a sketchbook that they jot down ideas into, or post on these forums. But what if there was a sketchbook where tiki artists could be found in one spot?

A few months back I found this on the internet (I think I found it after getting Danny Gregory's - An Illustrated Life):

http://www.sketchtravel.com/

To summarize (if you don't want to click the link, but you know you do):
A blank hardcover sketchbook
1 page per artist
No theme to it
Once each artist is completed with their page they hand-delivered the book to another artist.

So a few days ago it hit me - why can't the Tiki Community do the same thing? There are a bunch of great artists around - Shag, Yaniger, Horne, Thor, Tiki Tony, Ruzic etc etc. And it would be a cool project of a collection of all styles of artists who are representing the Tiki Pop Culture.

But once this project is completed how to offer the book back to the Tiki Community and possibly to a wider audience? In discussions I have had with some artists, and as was done on the Sketchtravel project, all the proceeds from sales were given to a charity (which is all about the aloha spirit).

This is just a starting post. Please like this and spread the information to those Artists who would be interested in joining this collective art project.

Mahalo
Andrew

**THIS IS OPEN TO ANY AND ALL ARTISTS**

Looks like a fun project.

The charity idea is a good one...maybe the Ken Ruzic Hair Research Foundation?

Great Project idea!

I got's close to 50 sketchbooks filled,dating from 1989 to present...
the past 6-7 years are FULL of mostly Tiki work which i try to share on my posts when applicable
(ie: studies for paintings,character developments,experiments,etc.)

So just filling ONE page would be a breeze!
Sign me up !

as long as the charity is for
Surgery to get Doug's legs shortened
or transplanting a brain in BigToe's noggin!

to help Tom's Tourettes...

Boys!!!

I'd love to do this and we'll be at Oasis. Do we need to bring felt pens or colored pencils? Wendy

The idea is to hand off the book (which I will be purchasing soon) to other artists. No rush on it, but I'm looking for help/ideas on how we can get this to all tiki people and beyond once it is completed.

Yes, I would like the kick-off to either be at the Tiki Marketplace in July (if that is happening) or Tiki Oasis. But right now it is getting as many artists/creatives on board.

Yes, the original should be auctioned off to help out charity. Just like to also get a replica/reproduction/copy that can be sold to others. Which again, help or getting this out to someone who knows how publishing works would be a fantastic boost!

Before I go purchasing the book. Any suggestions on size, material?

a BIG sketchbook (at LEAST 9x12/iix14 and up...) THICK paper so it doesn't bleed onto the next page
archival paper
No spiral bound or perforated pages!
this book should be nicely bound with a heavy front and back cover..

this is what i get and they aint failed me yet!
