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.

In the past few months I have start building shelves, reorganizing, finishing bits and pieces and cleaning up my studio to help me get more motivated to produce work. It has helped considerably. I just decided that my studio is too dark and I need to ad some flare to various parts by adding some lighter colors. I am going to start this process by adding a focal corner to the studio where I can also hang up my guitars and relax. Here are some pics now. Not sure what I'll add to the area. Robot arms? A pattern? Who knows!? Can't wait until it is done.
