Goodbye Hello Tiki.

It's a crying low down dirty shame ...
But I guess it serves no purpose for me to whine or rant "woulda, coulda, shoulda"... because really, if the Queen had balls, she'd be f--ken King now wouldn't she?

After weeks with my head buried in the sand absorbed in my "Hello Tiki" concept, I emerge with my spoils only to find that some chump has beaten me to the punch for the naming rights.
I did feel angry and entertained thoughts of throwing down the mattresses, but after much deliberation I would like to introduce to all to a cute little character I've created simply named "Good Tiki".

From Hanging Tiki ...
I've done a lot of work building the philosophy behind Good Tiki and I have pulled together some pieces I'm actually quite proud of. Recently I've been working on a collection of T-Shirts (as pictured) for friends and family and shoes too (and I'm considering an exhibition).

If you haven't already seen my growing series then check out my flickr page.

snap! looking good.
But have they got world rights or nz rights? see if you can get them in other countrys>?
good tiki is cool too though

Come on man! Don't give up so easily. Your Hello Tiki in my opinion is way more legit. Has this guy actually registered the name? Who's to say you didn't print a t-shirt or exhibit before this guy anyway. I think you should stick to Hello Tiki and see what happens. F@ck it dude, let's go bowlin'
