Dan's yearly snowboard

This is a snowboard design I did for a client/friend of mine. Every year my buddy Dan (Pictured) gets a new custom snowboard. This is the second year Ive done his snowboard design for him and this year the result was pretty cool.
Dan says that everyone who sees it says its the "sickest" snowboard design they have seen. So Im pretty stoked about that.
Dan told me he wanted the see, hear, speak no evil theme. After a few sketches I asked him to let me do something darker than he wanted and he let me run with it. I did a bunch of sketches he picked his favorite three and this was the result.
Im ready to do next years board already... Hopefully I can make it up this year and get into the snow myself.

Ride hard Dan, Ride hard!

Ps- see that picture behind Dano's head? That's some art I did my last year at the academy of art, he liked it so much he had me frame it and bought it from me. If I can find a copy of it I'll post it later.

And the world came crashing down...

Well, its been a crazy last few months. I lost my job, my girlfriend, my cool apartment, got denied unemployment and had to pack all my junk and move it to my friends house to store for a while. After that my dog got hit by my car and... wait... that sounds suspiciously like a country song.
Anyway, long story short I basically moved back to Hawaii for the next few months to work for my Father to keep my bills paid. Now that I got my head on straight again I'll get the updates up for the current stuff I'm working on. Sorry for the long delay.
I don't really have a dog or a car by the way, but the rest of that stuff is true.
Happy holidays and here's to a bright new year.
