UPDATE 6/1 - Personally I like the challenge of Album Cover Inspired Art but I'm going to go the democratic route and pick the highest vote getter which was CANNIBAL!!!
Album Covers and Tiki Drinks were also top picks, maybe we can use one of those next time, both sound very interesting to me.
Jones, I did add Cannibis/Pakalolo to the list for future consideration. From my experience with the TC crowd that subject is sufficiently "tiki" and could produce some very interesting ceramic paraphernalia
******************************************************************************************

It's almost June, if we are going to have an Art Swap to end just before Tiki Oasis we need to start now.

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. Usually, 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. But the last one was a secret drawing circular Swap where you don't know who is sending to you until you get it in the mail.
Most recent Swap themes have been;
Sea Creatures of the South Pacific
Pele/Volcano/Fire
Ladies of Tiki
Birds of the Pacific
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
Tangaroa
Ship Wreck
Music - Exotica/Hapa Haole/etc
Martin Denny
Hawaii Calls
Cargo Cult
Hawaiian Album Covers
Tiki Temples
Classic Tiki Drinks
Ports of Call
Cannibis/Pakalolo
Or some other theme

I organized the last two Swaps, it was easy and rewarding (besides, I got to choose the topic ) I could do it again or I could get someone else pointed in the right direction

If you are interested in this Swap and you were NOT on my mass-mailing e-mail list last time, drop me a PM with your e-mail address

Mike good to know you are back from Mexico. Thanks for starting up another swap. How about art that resembles a Hawaiian Album cover. Pick one and make art to resemble it in some way. That could cover most of the topics. Cheers, Wendy

I would like to do the new art swap.

Other theme suggestions:

Tiki Temples (anything based on the decor etc from famous old tiki bars/restaurants and other tiki places of note.)

Along the same lines another that might be fun is for everyone to choose a drink off an old tiki menu, and incorporate the theme of that drink somehow. Things like: Fog Cutter, Zombie, etc. Of course the real fun in this would be if everyone had a different drink they used.

Ports of call: various loosely tiki related exotic locations such as Shanghai.

Instead of being so open with the theme, you could narrow it to something specific too, and see how wild people could get within the confines of that theme. For example if I said "tapa designs" were the theme, it is narrow, but still has a huge field to play within.

Just some suggestions off the top of my head.

I'm in and I'll try to do a project that isn't ceramics in nature. Maybe!

I'm cool with any idea but cannibals appeal to me.

Thanks Mike for running this Art Swap again!!!

Don't want to say yes just yet because I have a bazillion projects on my plate and I might not have time.

Yeah. I'm already sweating coconuts with 79 days to prep pieces for Tiki Oasis. I'd be nuts to commit to a swap as well (especially since I wasn't able to get anything built in time for the last one!)

Big Mahalo to Mad Dog for putting this together - and I sincerely hope I can get in on the next one!

Sounds fun, put me in Mike! I like the classic tiki drink idea, so many fun ones to choose from. But whatever you go with is okay with me. I haven't done one before, so do you need my email? I'll PM you with it...
Thanks!
