I won this surfboard last year at the C st Long board competition in Ventura. It was shaped and created by Jeff of Parole Boards. My logo was designed and airbrushed on the board by Linda Cowell of Ventura.

Wow VT,

I was getting ready to ask how you made the tight radius bends in the bamboo when you pointed out that that is a real surfboard. SICK!!! That will turn some heads at your local break. I really like the shape too, kind of a mini-malibu.

The picture before was some bald dude dancing.

Never mind!!!

You had to see it!!!




Some bald dude dancing? How freaky! Shortly after I ordered 3 years worth of family photos from Shutterfly, my account has been acting real squirrelly. I don't have any pics of bald guys dancing.

Sorry for the strange interlude folks...back to art now.

Did you muss up the paper first?It looks so old and vintagey-almost like pen and ink on barkcloth-the stippling in there is intense!Go lightly as you don't want carpal tunnel in later years! Great work-captures the mood to a tee!

Sketched it in pencil, did the linework in ink. Coloured it in pencil, tore the edges, baked in oven. Be careful of getting oils from your hands on the paper - it browns at a quicker rate and results in fingerprints... Big problem for me cause I sweat a lot.
