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.

It's not often an illustrator gets to just enjoy his work and create a fun image. When I get invited to events or my friends bands play, I always throw something together fast and furiously and email it to them in hopes they will use it for the event. Today I threw together a quick halloween image collage for a friends party. I don't know if they will use it, but I enjoyed making it. Enjoy!
