Paddle Tease

Wow the hectic holiday’s are over now and it’s back to producing more art. Still having fun with the Ipad and brushes app, but here is the next block print project I’m working on of a paddle boarder or SUP (Stand Up Paddler).  I pulled the first proof today and here is a section of it to tease you some.  I should finish the cutting and printing in the next few day’s on the 8″ x 10 “block.  Comments and likes appreciated as always.

Santa and the ipad

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and your holiday’s are bright as below. Just got my new ipad from Santa and I love it.  I’m using the ipad for sketching out ideas and discovered there are some very cool drawing and painting apps out there.  I purchased the Brushes App from the app store and began fooling around with it to learn how the brushes and features work.  I love the way it layers like a real painting. Here is my first painting on the ipad using the Brushes App.  Comments or likes are appreciated as always.

Can you see this on the back or front of every shirt?

Het there, just touching base with you and the blog and wanted to show the logo for Wet Dog I’m working on.  I don’t know why it’s been so tough to come up with a cool logo for these shirts… perhaps cause I’m a better illustrator then designer?  Not sure, but here is one I’m thinking could be getting close to the final idea or design.  It was done using lino cut just like the t-shirt designs.  I have this vision for Wet Dog  there’s a shop, with apparel, maybe gear, Wet Dog annual Paddle Race, Wet Dog art, a wall were everyone can come in and doodle their art on, or help come up with a new shirt design, block printing classes,  some reggae or drumming going on in the background  Picture Myles hanging out with his drum and Capt. Barney playing at the opening (local friends)…. wait a minute  that just gave me a new idea for a design.  He, he, I guess I’m crazy like that.  My random ideas sometimes drive my wife crazy.


Thinking that the first one may read Wet Wear Dog, so I’m experimenting with it by taking out the wear and replacing with a paddle with a smaller wear.  What do you think?
