I am pleased to announce that a NEW book by (Modern Dog and Rockport Publishers) “Inside the World of Board Graphics” Will hit the bookshelves this September. I was given this amazing opportunity to be one of many artists featured in this book. Inside The World Of Board Graphics takes an in-depth, comprehensive look at the global nature and cultural influence of Surf/Skate/Snow board art and design. International design luminaries Art Chantry, Katrin Olina and James Victore are placed alongside industry superstars Terry Fitzgerald, Martin Worthington, Yoshihiko Kushimoto and Rich Harbour (who has been shaping and designing surfboards since 1959). The book includes dozens of interviews and profiles from the people currently creating board art and design: Aaron Draplin, Emil Kozak, Morning Breath, Anthony Yankovic, Haroshi, Hannah Stouffer and Derek Muscat to name a few. Introductions by Creative Director Marc Hostetter of TransWORLD SKATEboarding and Murray Walding, a regular contributor to Pacific Longboarder. There are many books about the art of board design, but there has never been a book like this that takes a rare look behind the scenes of the creative process. Countries represented: Iceland, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Russia, Poland, UK, Mexico, Venezuela, Romania, South Africa, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Croatia and the USA, among others.
