And this huge wave of success continues to swell!

Attached is the new ECSC T Shirt which is based on my original painting purchased by D. Nachnani at Coastal Edge this year. My original painting was inspired by the photography of Brad Styron and I transformed it into my own version of Bogue Inlet. I gave D. permission to transform my painting to include the channel marker and jetty on the horizon to suit the needs of the ECSC design and gave him full rights to alter the colors as well. As you can see they are both very different yet very successful designs and I am very proud to have collaborated with Brad, coastal edge, and so many others to have my work put on their posters, media and T Shirts this year. I have and always will be about collaboration, since it opens the doors to new opportunities and experiences and helps you grow in ways you could not do alone.

My connection to the ECSC goes back pretty far when I was working with the ESA as a judging coordinator with Paul West and Harry Purkey back in the early 80's. I also broke my ankle in the finals of the surf contest back then and it turned my entire life around and made me focus on my art work very seriously since I could not surf for an entire year. The docs said I would never surf again but they were wrong and one year later I went to Puerto Escondido with Tony Lighthart and friends and surfed some of the craziest waves of my life!

I can actually say that the ECSC has helped shaped what I am today and am very proud to be a part of it. Thanks! They did a video shoot this week on my story which will be aired soon. Once I get the link to that I will post it for ya.

 The official ECSC T Shirt for 2016!  As you can see, the colors were dramatically altered and the jetty and No. 4 channel marker were added very subtly to the horizon. It turned out well!
