Official Swap Rules - Artists create an work of Tiki art based on the "Maori" theme. Can be any media; clay, wood, paint, fabric, beads, digital, metal, glass, mixed media, etc. The intent is for this to be an original "one-off" work of art, not part of a mass produced run. If it is created from an existing mold it should be heavily modified. Digital art or screen prints should be printed on a nice substrate, not just run off on a piece of art pad paper. You must post a picture of your finished piece by the deadline in order to be included in the drawing. Remember that you will probably ship your art to your partner, don't make anything so large or heavy that it cannot be shipped cost effectively. If you are not an established Swapper and/or established TC member, I will ask for real name and cell phone number so we have a solid contact in the event of a problem. Most of all, have fun and interact with some fellow TC folks

******************************************************************************

Looks like the
Seasons of Tiki Swap is about wrapped up. We generally hold a summer Swap scheduled to end just before Tiki Oasis in August, luck of the draw usually allows some people to swap in person at Oasis. There was some interest in starting the next Swap soon, to give people more time to complete their art – anyone ready to start now? Tiki Oasis is August 18th this year, the Swap would need to end about Aug 12th.
There have been many themes used and proposed over the years, here are a list of some of them
(All as they relate to Tiki, of course)
Favorite Mug
Matchbooks
Drinks
Animal
Zodiacs
Hot Rod
Pin-up
Military
Tiki Bob
Maori
Waterfalls
Pufferfish
Moai
TV

Now I’m going to lobby for my favorite – MAORI/NEW ZEALAND!!!! Very traditional Tiki with a wide variety of styles and materials, something for everyone.
Wood Carving



Stone Carving


Bone Carving


Weapons


Tattoos




Too bad the Swaps aren’t good for performance art or you could create and perform a custom haka dance for your Swap partner


For further inspiration, here is a trailer for the 2015 Maori movie “The Bad Lands”, available to rent on Amazon. Action packed but rather bloody.

What are your thoughts on themes?

I guess it's only fair that the East Coaster get a chance to swap in person too. Maybe we could use that as a recruitment tool to involve more Floridians. What do you think people? That's 9 weeks, it just means more time working and less time procrastinating.

I sent out a mass email for those who have participated in the past and may not check TC on a regular basis. If you want to be on that e-mail list and are not, let me know. If you asked me to add you previously and I didn't, I apologize Send me a PM again

Thanks for the email, Mike. I like the theme, hmm... Xena Warrior Princess was shot in NZ....

Are we committing to Maori right off the bat, other ideas out there?

Thanks for taking the helm again, sir!!

Definitely no commitment to Maori, that's just my favorite. Feel free to lobby for your favorite theme

After looking through the "History of Swaps" (THANKS Mike), I noticed that New Zealand was already done in 2008. Have we come to point that we need to repeat themes?
