Hats!!!

Today felt like Christmas. A batch of postcards I got done where sitting at my door. I just picked up some stuff from the printers and Paramount had sent me this box of goods. I was so stoked! They are all incredible over at Paramount Apparel. I have been lucky enough to assist them on some of their projects. If you ever need a hat manufacturer – these are your guys. Honest – Sincere – I am not saying this just because I love them.. Its all true!

Its going to be a crazy week. Wrapping up all the loose ends and getting myself together for LasVegas then a short little road trip to Los Angeles with Josh. So much to get accomplished in so little time.Its going to take a good part of the week getting my hair product together for the road- ha. I finished some small touches on a littl promo piece over the weekend. Chuck over at Iron Forge is printing some of it up this week. Its not a book- but it will work.

Vote for My Shirt

This is by far the coolest shirt yet. I have decided to call it Page 14. Thought of this while on the phone with a buddy of mine. I thought it was funny as hell. Making fun of the fact that everyone uses Dover and what better way then to do it pure.
SO please go to Threadless and Vote!!

I was thumbing through the new Burton catalog when I saw this! This is by far the sickest thing I have seen in a long time. The old G&S board with ribs and everything. I remember styling out my decks with grip tape scissors and some paint pens. The good old days. The concept and execution of this board is incredible- I just wish I would have thought of it.

Sanuk

Ok- I am not crazy about the name. Actually not crazy about the logo either. I am in love with the sandal. My weekly ritual of going to my local surf shop and buying something I really don’t need. Like another RVCA shirt because I don’t have it in that color or another NewEra hat for my closet.
After seeing the ads for these about a million times skimming through surf mags I decided to check em out. They are amazing. Living in florida where I rarely where shoes and suffer from 7/11 feet (dirty feet from running around barefoot) these come in handy. If you haven’t slipped a pair on- do it! They are by far the best things I have purchased for my feet. Sanuk

Bali

I was working late on a project last night. I have a lot to get done this week so I was trying to get as much done to get ahead of the game this week. So in the wee hours of the night I decided to play around with a bunch of different elements from a bunch of different pieces. The Bali mask was part of the illustration for a client. The rest was what I came up with when I was sleep deprived.
