About This Class


Tiki culture exploded in North America in the late 50's and early 60's as Hawaii became the official 50th state of the United States of America in 1959. In the late 60's it had a fast decline, but there are still some dedicated artists who love the Polynesian art form.

In this class I will show you how I approach drawing a tiki, importing it into Photoshop and colouring it in there.

This class also features one of my favourite artists and long time tiki artist; Tiki Tony. He bring his wealth of knowledge and teaches us a brief history, as well as his approach to drawing Tikis.

This is a great class if you have any interest in Tiki or Polynesian art. Even if you haven't considered it before, you will likely have a blast drawing your own tikis!

I look forward to you checking out the class!

This is a good class even if you don’t have access to the software. It covers so much basic info on the background of tikis and tips for sketching them. Tikis are fun things to draw. If your only tools are pencil and paper you’ll have fun with this.
This was a very interesting class, both the history side and the design stuff. I really enjoyed listening to TikiTony and will attempt a tiki soon. I don't have photoshop or illustrator though but am going to try to translate the ideas using Affinity Photo & Affinity Design (both of which I'm a complete newbie at so this could take months!) :D
