Bordo Bello

The 2009 Bordo Bello skateboard art fundraiser was a HUGE success - what a great event! Above is the board I donated. It got auctioned off at the event. I tried my hand at winning a few boards but fell short, hopefully I'll have better luck next year.


Please vote for my snowboard (but only if you like it)!

REI and Arbor Snowboards are having a board design contest and I entered it! My board is titled "FLOW", and you can vote for it by clicking here.

Each pair comes in 3 different color combos. Below are the socks and links to buy them. Go get yourself a pair... or 10!

Local Artist I'm diggin': Alyson Khan

A couple of weeks ago I was at Metropolis Coffee and stumbled upon Alyson Khan's art. From the moment I saw it, I was sucked in. The colors, the composition... I couldn't NOT look at it. Upon further inspection of each piece I discovered they were collages. Great stuff. Seriously, check out her site: http://www.unevenfloor.com/. Her progression from Spring 2004-present day is pretty fantastic. I love discovering great local artists. Keep the beauty flowing, Alyson!

Working on a cut paper piece

No title yet. This one is 19" x 13" and I've been using an exacto blade to cut it out (cue the "Uncle Joey" visual). It's kind of annoying, but at the same time it's very therapeutic.
