The Best Laid Plans

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be working on the art direction for an upcoming surf film featuring some of the east coasts top talent! Things are just getting off the ground but the film will be out in November so keep your eyes peeled and check out The Best Laid Plans.

Ty Dug and Madness!

Holy cow! Life is great. People make it great! A few weeks ago I spent the day with Ty Williams and Dug Desjardin. I met up with them at Grain Surfboards in Maine. From there we cruised to Portland to a new surf art boutique called Corduroy. After hanging out for a bit we headed back to York and paddled out. It was my first chance to surf a Grain Surfboard and damn was it fun. Carrying that big wooden stick down to the beach wasn’t easy but once it was on top of the water it was surely worth it! I grabbed this photo of Dug and his car off of Ty’s flickr page. Check out both of their art work at Ty Paints!

R.I.P. Mr. Butch

For those of you who don’t know Butch, he was an icon in and outside of Boston, MA for at least the past twenty years, spending most of him time on the streets. Sadly, Mr. Butch passed away early yesterday following an accident while riding his new red Vespa. Last time I saw Butch he was sitting on his new ride on Harvard Ave. enjoying an afternoon PBR Tall Boy. He told me he had just bought the Vespa a few weeks earlier after working the streets for seven months. I remember a local friend passing by and reminding Butch not to drive his red beauty unless he had not been drinking. Most of my close friends know that I was always a fan of Mr. Butch (Mayor of Allston).
