Color magazine issue 10.2

For issue 10.2 of Color magazine, I was able to have input on a few levels.

 I painted a portrait of Danny Way for the review of his movie.
(Dan Post wrote that excellent review)

Because the magazine was so late getting to the printer,
it was getting turned in on the day that MCA died.
There wasn't enough time to write something fitting,
but I managed to draw a little something in remembrance.

This page is kind of a big one for me, because I am on the masthead. WHAT!?!?!!
Thanks Sandro!

I shot some photos using Impossible instant film at the premier and 
afterparty of the Vancouver showing of Danny Way's movie:
"Waiting for Lightening". These photos were made possible
by the generosity of the Impossible Project. Thanks!

Sluggo and Danny Way

Lastly, I created some added texture, used throughout the Globe Record story.
31 skate parks skated in one day. Congratulations on the new world record!

adjectives from Jim Phillips

To see these adjectives hurled in my direction by my hero Jim Phillips 
doesn't say so much about me as it says about him: an A #1 good guy.

a letter from V.C. Johnson

How do I respond to a letter such as this from one of my heroes?

Finishing a Painting (a short by Mark French)

My youngest brother Mark made this.
He was sneaking around with a camera
while I finished up my portrait of Danny Way.

Easter Egg hunting

Obviously I have some catching up to do, because after the art show was Easter.
My little ladies hunting for eggs at the in-laws'.

Post-Show wrap-up

Yeah, it's me talking...who cares.
However, it is nice to catch up with friends
 and be able to show the public a bit of what I do.
Thanks to all who came out and enjoyed the refreshments and visuals.
Thanks Zac, Jefferson, Dj WHO?, 
and the fine lookin' lady that made the refreshments happen.

the Best Pen (I like it, anyway)

Faber-Castell has been around a long time.
Long enough to bring this pen to reality.
India ink in a brush-tipped pen.
And if the tip starts to wear out, you just pull it out, turn it around, and place it back in the pen.
Preferably with the newer side out.
Yup...both ends of the brush tip are sharp, doubling this pen's longevity.

Volcom Stone + 1

Ink Zone

This is my inking station.
Got all the stuff right here.
Super-comfy chair, light table,
good pens, and skateboard footrest.
Yeah, I'm on a skateboard while I
make art for skateboards.
Weird how that works.


The city just removed this sign from the yard after almost a year of it's visual blight.
Above is the photo I just took the other day with Impossible film, and below is the photo I took with my crappy plastic 35mm camera right after they first put in the sign .

Lake & Baker

Now that the season is winding down, here's a photo I took of Mount Baker.
I took this while headed down the road at 50 miles an hour.
This was one of only two photos I took on that drive-by.

Bitten by a Mitten

Celtek Snowboard Gloves Mitts Review 2012-2013

Celtek Snowboard Mitts Review 2012-2013.jpg

Welcome to the future of the Bitten by a Mitten series by Celtek.
I had a lot of fun drawing the art for these.
The primary function is protection for your hands in the snow.
The secondary function is that they are all designed for use as puppets.
Entertain your friends on the lift, or begin moonlighting as a ventriloquist.

2013 Electric B4BC goggle

As you can see, I originally did this art for Volcom.
I am glad the art found a home on an Electric goggle.
It makes sense, as they are part of the Volcom family.
