Just a few more art thangs, some skate photos, and a couple instavids from an amazing trip to Sweden.
This is a christmas present that I made for a friend named Robin, the Star-Wars-loving brother of my wonderful girlfriend Kim. I got to meet their whole family over the holidays and had a whole lot of fun. Everyone I met was super rad and welcoming. I had such a great time. Within the first 10 minutes that I met Kim's sister Wiveca, she had showed a HUGE fondness for Despicable Me's "Minions", so I made her this:
It was such a incredible trip! I got to see some reeeeally cool stuff like...
This is where the KING OF SWEDEN lives. Whoa.
They also have so many skateparks, we had trouble deciding which ones to go to. We ended up only having time to go to one, but man it sure was fun! It was under a bridge just like my favorite skatepark, Marginal Way.
We even iPhone filmed a bit.
SO FUN. I feel so fortunate to be able to spend the holidays on the other side of the planet, and that I got to experience so much while I was over there. If you want to see more photos from the trip, check out my Instafeed at:
In older news, before I left for Sweden I made this:
It's the second piece of the "Intelligent Animals" series. The first one was the octopus in the last blog post.
About a month ago, a friend of mine named Justin Carney came to the Mukilteo YMCA skatepark and had his gopro with him. We had a lot of fun buddy-filming for a bit before he had to leave, and just a few days ago he sent me some of the clips. I brought them into Premiere, found a cool song, and made this:
'twas a grand ol time. See the griptape under my feet? Check it out:
This'll be rad once I skate and dot the other two pieces to make this complete.
I also received some more photos from the session that I had at Judkins skatepark, in Seattle. These were taken by Daniel Hager, who operates under the name 36 Frames Photography when it comes to these things...
Check out the video of all this filmed by Bryan Busalacchi.
Alright y'all that's about it for now. Thank's for checkin in, and have a wonderful new year!!!!
