I'm wondering about a couple things i.e. -

Should artists focus solely on polypop subjects?

If I receive the sketchbook may I just pick any blank page or should the submissions be linear starting from the beginning at page 1?

Date and signature required? It seems an obvious necessity but who knows? Maybe part of the schtick could be "guess the artist" and have a summary on the last page?

Time limit per artist?

Will there be a ultimate deadline placed on the sketchbook?

If mailed, what are the requirements for a guaranteed safe arrival i.e. insurance and signature required upon delivery for tracking purposes?

What shouldn't be used (i.e. Sharpie pens that bleed through the paper?)

Ultimately what charity will the receive the proceeds? Who is responsible to ensure this situation is handled correctly?

OR - am I just being anal and should I stop thinking about such OCD trivial details?

If the sketchbook is ready - I'm ready! G

It would be preferred, because this is suppose to be a tome of tiki-poly-pop artists.

Preferably in order.

Yes, date and signature would be good, because I was originally thinking that in the back of the book would be a profile of each artist. That way it would give each a brief profile with website, contact info, etc. It would be an extra bit of effort to get a short blurp on everyone, when it's finished, but think it would help.

Right now, I don't think there is a time limit per artist. I'd like to have several pages done by Tiki Oasis so that I could present the idea to other artists who will be there.

Depends upon how many artists we get. The original SketchTravel project lasted several years. I am sure, like you, there are certain artists that need to be in the book, because you want to throw a wide net and hopefully catch all the fish out there.

Yes. Even with hand delivery, I'd like to keep a track here and/or PM/email me. Email will be in the book.

Perhaps have one page buffer between each, so bleeding from one piece to the next won't happen. But, I leave that up to what you want to do.

When I spoke with Tiki Tony he said there was an Easter Island charity
http://islandheritage.org/wordpress/

or Surfrider Foundation

bottom line - I think the charity has to have some link with the tiki community.

Again, please pass this along to any and all tiki/poly-pop artists who'd be interested in joining this cool project!

Update:

The book has its first artist in! Thanks to Tiki Tony for kicking it off, and the book is now in the hands of Doug Horne! Again this is a networking project, pass the word along to fellow artists/creatives.
