The Tiki Stardust exhibition opened at the Tairāwhiti Museum on Friday 15 October 2015.
The event was a lovely and lively gathering, my son Tawhairiri was the photographer.
He took photos of all of us in front of the art pieces.
A press clipping is also attached.
Kia ora mai ra!
It’s that time of the year, when I celebrate another year of financial trading. Another year of getting older! And loving it.
Last year I ran a poster competition and two lucky winners each won a signed print. This year, the stakes are higher and I am giving away a hoody or t-shirt from the Print Mighty store. I’ve added 3 new designs; a full colour Kaiti Aki; a skull print design using the star logo; and Rangi the Raptor. Click on the following thumbnails for a good look at these designs:
Now, all you have to do is get your mates to like the Aotearoa 666 page on Facebook, and then post on the wall, saying they were sent by you. The person who has generated the most likes, wins a garment of their choice!
Make sure they post on the wall, or I won’t know who sent them.
This competition is WORLDWIDE, and not just to those living in Aotearoa (New Zealand).
Because that’s how we ship!
I will announce the winner on May the 23rd.
Mauri Ora 🙂
Nga mihi nunui ki a koutou!
I have recently finished working on the t-shirt designs for the Ka Pai Kaiti Waitangi Day festival. This is a whānau day that has been regularly held for over ten years, in the suburb of Kaiti, which is a part of Turanganui-a-Kiwa. The place where I live and work.
I started donating my time and energy into the t-shirt printing in 2008. What happens is that every year we come up with an idea/whakaaro to promote where we live. I come up with a design, it gets put on to a screen, then I print the shirts during the festival. People can bring their own t-shirts along on the day and give a small koha (a one or two dollar coin) to help cover costs. I got this idea from going to Punkfest in Wellington; nothing like a bit of DIY inspiration!
The whakaaro was to make shirts promoting Kaiti cheap and affordable for whanau (members of the community) who live in the area. So everyone can wear a Kaiti shirt. Before the weekend we print about 30 shirts for the volunteers who work hard to make the day a success.
This year two shirts were designed. The Kaiti Aki shirt and the K.I.N.G.s shirt. There’s a bunch of photos on Flickr of people wearing them, and you can look at images over the last month of our little Kaiti Aki as it was created on Webstagram.
And of course there are the pictures I have uploaded here.
