O'neill Freaks!!!!

The summer collection of board shorts are out I just got a chance to check it out on the O'neill website. The new Assault Freak board shorts design I did last year are finally out this summer. This is a graphic painting that they asked me to do that is not related to the Byerly Freaks. Glad that O'neill is letting me do other lines, maybe there will be more in the future. I've included the original paintings that I did for it.

As for the Byerly Freaks not only did this new color version came out (black and gold) but found out from Mr. Byerly himself that they made shirts out of the same graphics also. I was so stoked to see them yesterday when they came to my door. In a roundabout way this is my first shirt graphic for O'neill. Thanks Scott and O'neill for making it happen, maybe this will be a beginning???

Liquid Playground baby

I was so happy to be asked by my friend Austin Watts to come down and be a part of his one year celebration of his board shop The Liquid Playground in San Jose. It was a short noticed but everything came together and we all had a blast. Austin made everything looked great including me. He is truly passionate about what he does to that shop and it shows through the support he has from all his friends and family. Met Austin's brother Travis, his girlfriend and mother all around great people.

Got a chance to see Scott again, it's been a long while since we've met and talked since I don't do graphics for his "Byerly" brand anymore. Scott is still the same, we talked about family and whats going on in both our lives and just had a chance to catch up. A good friend will always be a good friend, it was great. Greg Nelson from Hype was also there, had a chance to talk about whats been happening at the old stomping grounds. Seems like we always end up talking about that place. Good times.
