1982

April 29, 2008

I stopped through Arizona last weekend and my mom got out the few pictures she had of us growing up. We used to hangout at Sidewalk Surfer just about everyday. This last weekend was a trip down memory lane. My brother and his family went into Sidewalk Surfer to get both of his kids shoes. His 6 year old got a pair of DC’s and His 4 year old girl picked out her first pair of pink checkered Vans. It was pretty awesome walking into see Tim the same guy that sold my parent my first pair of Vans at 4 years old.  Anyways here is a pict of me when I was 6.. I think this is why I love what I do today. 

Sombrio Stuff

April 9, 2008

I worked on this Sombrio project with Josh more than a year ago I think. Mountain biking is not really my thing although I grew up around it having a best friend in college that did it everyday. I must admit that Sombrio and a few other brands are doing some really good stuff. I look forward to the opportunity to work with them in the future. 

 

AAAAGh MY NEW WEB

April 4, 2008

newweb.png I have been trying to put together a new website for weeks now. Brian Gonzales from Pairodime Design is being so patient with me. Its tough going through work deciding what to show and what is too early to show. My old site I feel is so super lame now and the work is not close to anything I have been doing lately. Element has been one of my biggest clients since the new year and I have nothing posted. I have had so many pieces picked up by Dragon where I totally pushed my design capabilities building out patterns for goggles and typography that was used in trim for hats ect. I have more than a dozen pieces lately with them that I would love to show but – I have to wait a month or so until at least the catalogues are distributed to the buyers.

 Quiksilver is another company I would love to show. I pushed Hydro into contacting them for work when I noticed my type was popping up on stickers and my local store had 4 or more of my designs from the previous season. With the success of the first go around with them I knew I would stand a good shot of exceeding  their expectations the second time around. They have picked up more than 7 pieces, one of which is typography that they plan to use throughout the line and I am still waiting to hear back on a bunch more. 

With all that said I am trying my best to put together some work that I am proud of until I can post everything I have been doing these last 6 months. I am sure by then I will be tired of that stuff and want to post my latest work 6 months from now..  My best piece is always the one I just finished. Hahahahaha
