Hi all,
10 years ago I opened my online website to sell my art. I've always wanted to produce a Swamp Fire Lounge Tiki mug based on the name of my website.
Here is a proposed sketch I did for the mug. What do you guys think?
Your comments are welcome, I have a thick skin when it comes to criticism so let it fly if you don't like it or have some thoughts.
My goal is to have it ready to sell by Tiki Oasis this year.









I like the design alot. The teeth look a little too perfectly geometrical though.
I will definitely get one for my collection.

Hey, you need to update your website.

It’s a great concept Doug! It definitely has that Doug Horne flair, and the idea of having the lava base really breaks up the feel of being a standard tiki head and gives the mug a multi-textured look that lends a unique ambiance when compared with some of you past designs. Like it a lot!
If I can offer one small, humble critique…
The detailing and concept are spot on but the silhouette lacks a tiny bit of the interest of the other design elements. The general shape is very cylindrical when compared to some of your past efforts, such as the Caliente II and III mugs, or the breath-in design of the Kon Tiki mug. I seems to me that if this concept had, for example, a greater taper at the top of the base that flairs out for the start of the tiki or a similar exaggeration of it’s existing features it would give the mug it’s own unique silhouette and would add more individuality to the sculpt that will make it more unique when placed in collections among other mugs that share the rectangular profile.
I do love it and will be first in line!

BTW – dose it creep anyone else out that ATP likes to live out his Johnny Sokko fantasies and ride around in taller peoples hands?

Very nice mug.
Great job!
Maybe you could add a cryptic DH on the rim or middle of the nose.

I would buy one.

Thanks for all the input everyone.

I decided to take the Tiki part of the mug in a different direction. Give it more of a Doug Horne look.

Going into production and I hope to have some finished mugs ready to sell by Tiki Oasis.
