sketchbook pages & new piece

I have been adding slowly pages to my sketchbook. Here are a few sample pages. Hope you enjoy. I hope to one day in the next year produce a small magazine of some of my favorite pieces.

I also have been trying some new color palettes and working on stylistically moving towards a more realism sorta thing. I just feel as if I dont want my work to become stale. I have added a piece here of what I am sorta talking about. let me know what you think. I really appreciate your feedback on my work.

The Art of Surfing DEL MAR

Last Saturday me and the fam took as trip down to Del Mar to check out The Art of Surfing Festival. It was way cool. They had about 100 super cool surfboards from all kinds of great shapers. Got to see a board shaped like a seed, and painted by Thomas Campbell. I cant believe I didnt get a pic of that(sorry). It was very cool though. They also had a surf contest going on along with live music and food. But my real mission was to check out some art in the Gallery they had set up inside. I was very impressed with all of the artists work. The standouts were Scott Chenoweth (freakin amazing), Thomas "The Master"Campbell (of course), Alex Knopps(very original), some cool Andy Davis stuff, a huge Wolfgang Bloch piece, and some beautiful photos by surfing legend Rob Machado.

All in all a fantastic event. Here are some pics

There is surf everyday and concrete skateparks galore. Its been super fun so far. Here are some shots of my new work space and a few new pieces I finished in the last few days. Let me know what you think.
