WHAT: Festival Vagabonde: Surf Art Festival WHEN: July 3-7, 2015 WHERE: Halle des Chartrons, Bordeaux, France Super stoked to be a part of the Festival Vagabonde again this year.

Leading outdoor brand REI recently contracted me to create artwork for their Santa Monica, California store. The wave and palm tree scenes were painted on plywood panels, and they also purchased one of my triangle paintings and a few 18x24 prints to add to the installation with some good looking reclaimed wood. Stop by and check it out if you're in the area. Here's how it turned out...

But instead of an edition on 10 like the others, [...]
Here's a little painting I did on a Sector 9 Skateboard deck for a friend. Looking at it is giving me severe travel pains. Makes me want to go hunt for surf in a warm, far off location where I can surf my nads off by day and lounge pool side in a hammock with a belly full of local food and brew by night. Maybe even throw in [...]
