As part of the new PNW Artist line from Moment Surf Co. in Pacific City, OR, I was asked to create something that represented a favorite moment as a surfer in the PNW. This sealion poking it's head out of the water is just that. When one pops up right next to you with that classic goofy smirk, you can't help but laugh at them. It might be kind of a [...]
As part of my new year resolution, I've cleared out the web store and discontinued all my best selling prints. My bank account is currently showing me the stupidity of that decision, but all good things must come to an end. So this year I'm going to be focused on releasing something new each month that's only available for a short period of time. This is the January print "Northern Sol", it's [...]

I was lucky enough to be one of the 20 artists asked to create a beer label for Blue Moon Brewing Company's 20th Anniversary: Rising Moon Program. The winner gets a $20,000 grant… that's huge! I'm asking my fans, fam and friends to support my art by giving my label a "LIKE" and sharing it. >> Click HERE to go to Blue Moon's Facebook page and like my image. << [...]

Bonjour! I'm happy to announce I'll be participating in the Vagabonde Surf Art Festival in Bordeaux, France July 3-6th at the Helle De Chartrons. Along with having nine new pieces of art showing, I'll be attending the show and live painting on a pair of breasts... hey, it's France right? Actually, it's a plaster cast of a pair of breasts for the Keep-A-Breast Foundation, but it should still be [...]
Finally getting around to putting up some pics of a Baja mission with the boys in early Jan. We got some fun waves at a little sand bottom point break South of Rosario. Deep Baja seems like the real Baja. Where everybody is nice/drunk and laid back, the locals are happy to see you and always smiling and waving. Anything further North of this place and you feel like [...]
We've just released 7 illustrations as massive 24"x36" fine art, archival prints. These puppies are big, bright and bold and large enough to make a statement in any room. Each print is hand signed by Erik Abel. Check out all the prints HERE >>
The third and final painting in the Kelpafornia series for Heal the Bay is finished. It looks like I was feelin' the colors of Autumn in this one.

But instead of an edition on 10 like the others, [...]
