Nice little grouping heading to a great family I meet in Japan. Upper left is an original Lino print. Right and bottom are from the second edition of prints I did for @alohasuperette awhile back. Both are 1/5. The one on the right is a Lino cut and the bottom one is a giclee. Send me a message if you are interested in getting your hands on one of the remaining prints before they go up on my website.

I seriously CAN NOT WAIT to get these babies developed. Went straight from the airport to #prophotoconnection to get the ball rolling but unfortunately they closed early today, so I’ll have to wait until Monday. @jonas_draws and I had an amazing time surfing and exploring in Amami and I just know there’s some gold in there.

Sorry to hear about the passing of John Severson. John was an artist and entrepreneur. A filmmaker, writer, publisher and, above all else, Surfer. Though I never knew the man I wouldn’t be where I am today without his contributions to the world. I grew up devouring Surfer Magazine. Which he started as an accompaniment to his movies. I went on to become art director of that very magazine. I loved surfing so much that, like John, I started making art inspired by surfing. But in order to make it as an artist you also have to be a businessman, and John paved the way for how to to that as well. An inspiration on how to live life as a multi disciplined creative surfer, his legacy in surfing is titanic.
