I was recently asked to paint a custom skate deck using Boardstix brand markers. This was a Christmas gift for a local Rhode Islander's son. It was a fun, exciting and simple process. My customer had some ideas and was looking for a composition created with my very own art style. I really enjoy when people appreciate my artwork enough to give me a loose idea to create a composition. Not only does this simplify the process, but it allows me considerable creative freedom resulting in a more powerful product. You can view a video of me finishing off the deck. Unfortunately my GoPro had some issues during the first part of my painting.

As I was furiously working on my Movember campaign, drawing freelance for LEGO Club and doing a few commissions, I was hired to build a cigar box uke for friend and steampunk artist, Michael Salerno. It was a gift for his son and I'm told he loved it. In fact, I loved it and would like one of my own some day. But I don't have time to build for myself, so others must experience the joy of my art and instruments. Here's a slide show for everyone to check out.
