Mmmm... what... birds was the last one... shrunken heads was it it the one before...

Shrunken Heads and Headhunters Swap

And, as I see 'em, the rules for arty-swappy:

  • Each entry is only allowed to swap once - no doubles as of yet
  • Participants must make a original piece of art on the theme specificaly for the swap - nothing 'from the vault'.
  • The art can be anything you like (as long as it is original, no prints/moulded pendants etc), so it could be a painting, charcoal sketch, pastel art, a carving, a one off hand carved mug etc etc etc. Look at the links above to the previous swaps to get an appreciation of the variety of stuff you could make.
  • Some people get caught up in the excitement and make multiple pieces of art on the theme. Thats cool, just be clear if your swap partner is going to receive all of it or if they get a choice out of what you have made. And remember one swap partner per person.
  • Post your pics on this thread of the art you are making - to motivate everyone else to get involved!
  • Post pics of your completed piece by the due date!!!
  • All of the participants names will go into a hat, and be drawn out together. The list of swapping partners will be posted here. PM your swapping partner and exhange your postal details. Send your piece off and watch the mailbox like a hawk waiting for your art to arrive!
  • Note - there is a reasonable chance that your creation will be sent overseas! You are responsible for postal costs of the item you create, so dont enter a 6 foot carving unless you're prepared to cover postage! One participant in a previous swap got quoted an exorbient amount to post their piece with Fed Ex. By sending the same piece with US Postal Service, they saved themselves a huge amount of cash.

--Much of the rules above were established by his heweyness... solid information from an established swap maker.

cy wants into this fracas. How bout musical tikis or motorcycle/scooter theme?

I can't resist a good swap. Just in case ZeroTiki I suggest you send Hewey a PM for approval. He may not read this thread and get an unpleasant surprise in the future. Either way I'm in for any subject matter chosen even if it's topless hula girls! Wendy

GROG posted on Mon, Apr 4, 2011 6:46 PM

Oooo! GROG vote for topless hula girls! Right on, Wendy!

Z

Good idea. I will do that, Wendy

BB

How about Ship Wrecks?

That sounds fun and would be fun to watch everyone do their thing.

K

Tangaroa.

Z

I'm going to hold off until hewey sends some sort of OK... but let's keep kicking the ball around, theme- wise.

I guess I started something. It's all Dan's fault he's such a boob, I mean boob guy. I vote for topless hula girls. Men you got to love em, Wendy

ps I did the Zombie Hut mug in clay for a swap. If this is the theme maybe I should make her again and in ceramic or maybe a painting. Humm lots to think about_________________

[ Edited by: danlovestikis 2011-04-06 10:05 ]

I think topless hula girls could be fun! hee-hee

GROG posted on Wed, Apr 6, 2011 12:49 PM

GROG hope that the theme, because GROG already start doing research.

My house is decorated in the "Late Century Prude" style, I'm not sure my wife would let me hang the topless piece I recieved in the swap :lol: How about a breast-shaped volcano mug enTITled "Kratatoa East of Cleavage" :D

Hey Mike, Dan has a man cave in the garage. I let him hang his topless velvets ect. out there, Wendy


[ Edited by: danlovestikis 2011-04-06 21:27 ]

Wendy I like the cut of your jib!! :D

Perhaps not topless - just Female?

what about Bottomless Hula Guys?

Wahines, Hula girls and female tiki gods, sounds good to me, just because tiki means penis doesn't mean that all tiki art should be a sausage fest....girl power!

Z

OK, ladies it is. If you do a topless piece and get MadDog, be sure to include a tiny felt bra to cover the naughty bits...

a boobie swap, really!

Z

Tasteful is possible, Dawn. The topless is not a requirement, so boobies might not be in all pieces.
Although, in certain cases, 'Boobs, by boobs, for boobs' may be the byline...
:)

I hope everyone ends up with a matched pair

We've been waiting along time for you to finaly come out of the closet, kinny. Congrats buddy, I know that was a difficult step.

An art swap featuring the fairer sex? How can I resist? I'm in!

:music: You're my sunshine and I want you to know that my feelings are true, I really love you. OOOOOh you're my BREAST friend :music: :D

Hmmm... I'll have to "play" with this one for a while before I commit. I'm not sure I have the mad sculpting skills required to pull off the female form.

I guess "Ladies of Tiki" could include mermaids too.
Zero, thanks for adding the bra for me :lol:

I've heard the internet is pretty good for that. If you type in 'naked women' on most computer search engines, a website or 2 will come up.

Naked women? That must have been the problem. GROG was only finding images like this when GROG search internet.

Thanks for keeping us abreast zero. Tit will be mounds of fun and cans wait to see the boobie prizes/surprises. Mammalian protuberances are a subject worthy of artistic investigation and will bounce right in to nip this thing in the bud. Thanks bra

Oh no you didn't! LOL now THAT was funny!

Count me in on this one... I think I have some headless Barbee dolls around here left over from the shrunken head swap... just kidding! I like the theme, should provide a lot of variety.

We need a deadline.

zerotiki, before you know it some country will be selling window shades with your design. It is an interesting effect. Wendy

Progress!

Zero, you're kickin' butt and takin' names! I've got to start working on a plan first.

A what, now? I've heard of those things...
:)

Just so folks know, I have re-thunk the due date for name adds, so take a l'il time (but don't wait till the last second)
