Thanks Nui' Umi, it's good to hear people care. Tipsy and I go way back, he likes to step on people's toes, and was yanking my chain, and I went for it.



thanks sven !! I knew you would "get" my warped humor..... and thanks for the lengthy and informative response.


Tipsy, Looks like I went for it too.Accept my sincere apology and keep posing!
Cheers

Considering Sven's books are out of print....not sure how he can do much selling of them here! I just saw the one post where BOT is going for 73 bucks, because they are now collector items!

I am holding on to my copy of BOT and TM forever. My BOT is one of the first ones, actually.

This thread has had some derailing! I particularly like that BigBroTiki appeared with a SHAZZAM when called

I feel like this thread is turning into "My concept of tiki is better than yours." All I wanted to do was lament the recent dearth of traditional form tiki mugs.



Ha ha

Anyway...

Too narrow. What about barrel mugs & coconut mugs? Or the Trader Vics coffee grog skull mug?



I thought about this post & thought 'Ill post a good selection of mugs & they'll still count as tiki mugs...'



And then I realised... Yes, only one of the mugs in my photo is a 'tiki' mug, the tangaroa one.

The barrel & bamboo are sort of 'non tiki tiki mugs' - i.e. traditional style mugs that would not be out of place in a tiki bar. Skull & coconut mugs etc would also be in this category. The Hemmingway mug is too much of a stretch - likely classified as a 'character' mug.

Tikitacky, I stand corrected!

But are they low brow?...

Im not sure what that 'tiki slot machine' mug on page 4 counts as (?!) but I imagine most people would agree on low brow.

Low brow to me means a tie in to comics, monsters, superheroes, hot rods, grafiti,and skateboarding, etc.. not fine literature....so that hemmingway mug hardly is low brow, in my opinion. It would fit perfectly in a tiki bar, as would the barrel and bamboo mug. again...my opinion. Just like we have all agreed that nautical decor fits in a tiki bar, and it does not really feature any tiki in it. Again, my opinion.

Nice work, Tom! Congrats! If you can share, I'd be curious to know what the process is like designing for Tiki Farm?

I no longer visit their site as a place to spend money, but at least it's good for a (sad) chuckle. Sure makes my trigger finger itch...
