Color

The resin pigment color of my boards is decided by the color of the fins.  After procuring bright bubblegum fins, I knew that loud color-work would be over the top.  A black, white and clear swirl was the call.

Foil

Being 5 inches shorter than I am, appropriate volume distribution of the board was crucial. A compromise between performance (thin) and float (thick) was found.

Logo is pen and ink and watercolor on rice paper. The rice paper becomes completely transparent when the resin impregnates it, leaving only the logo visible.


Traitor

Album cover artwork and design for multi-instrumentalist Matt Kronish. Cut paper, stacked, lit and photographed.

The work was comprised of 9 cut sheets of colored card stock. Additionally, I made digital images for the pre-release EPs that were downloadable via soundcloud.


WabiSake

Wabi Sake

Sand-cast tin Saké cups with inset Poplar rings to diffuse heat from hot beverages. No fasteners or glue. Embracing the Japanese tradition of Wabi Sabi in design. Nothing lasts forever. Nothing is finished. Nothing is perfect. Edition of 8.


Pocket combs

Material study in the form of wooden pocket combs. As with all manufacturing order of operations, jigs and tooling are paramount. As it turns out, there's a reason more combs aren't made out of wood. Mahogany, walnut, steel, brass pins.


Swiss army Knife

Designed to be the do-anything, go-anywhere board. A specialized blade for any environment, it can be ridden with 1, 2, 3 fins, and will handle itself from ankle-slapping mini mounds up to survival-stance-inducing mega bombs. The one board quiver. Built for Matt, who only has one board.  7'3ish x 22.5" x 2.8" round pin tail. Hand foiled fin.
