Motorscootin’ Surf Chipmunks

Another colored version of the surf screenprint series I’ve been working on. This is intended to be a four color silkscreen print. I don’t do a lot of four color prints because the more colors you have you increase the likelihood of missed registration which leads me to be grumpy. That said I played with less colors on these two rad rodents and it didn’t feel right, so FOUR colors it is!

Thank you Aya Kakeda for translating for me once again!

New PostCard

Posted by on Mar 25, 2018 in Uncategorized | No Comments

It was about time I made a new postcard. I’ve been using the same postcard for promotions and as my business card for the last five years. It was very popular but I’ve also made a lot of new work since then. So, introducing the Surf Kitty & Pups Postcard! I just placed my order at MOO printing so they’ll also be fancy.

I’ve also made a business card. I find designing them a pain, such a small surface that I often go overboard and it looks like a design mess. Not this time. Kept it graphic and simple.

Above the text is the front of the card and below is the back

Here’s the new Business Card back and front:

Surf Dogs Lineup II

Posted by on Mar 23, 2018 in Uncategorized | No Comments

After I created my first “Surf Dogs Line Up”, I thought to myself- “Hmmm, I actually haven’t drawn a lot of dogs before”. The first piece was ok, not my best drawing but good enough. Then I thought “What would bring a real impact to these pups”.

Draw a hundred of them.

Then combine them into one single image. 100 surf dogs.

So, now there are seven more. Only eighty seven left.

Fish I see snorkeling #2 colored.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do this. Digital print? Screen print? I’ve set it up for a silk screen but I’m not sure. I really liked using the dot screens, they brought a cool graphic element to the piece.

Nene Beach Holiday!

Posted by on Mar 19, 2018 in Uncategorized | No Comments

A fun day at the beach with the native Hawaiian Geese- the NENE. Yep, they look like Canadian geese and rightfully so, they descended from Canadian geese that came to island chain about five hundred thousand years and decided to stick around. There smaller than the standard Canadian goose and some are flightless. It was almost driven to extinction but due to conservation efforts they are on the rebound.

This is a mock-up for a four color silkscreen print.

Are you feeling lucky? This cat is! I’m pretty sure that I’m going to screenprint this but I’m also considering making stickers or t-shirts. I’ve considered putting in more Japanese type but I think this is good enough for now.

BJ Penn v Boxing Chicken

Posted by on Mar 15, 2018 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I’ll be the first to admit that I know next to nothing about MMA fighting but since moving to Hawaii it’s hard not to know who BJ Penn is. Here he is posing with my friend Jess at the Exhibit Gallery in Downtown Hilo holding my “Boxing Chicken” screen print!
