Some new work we did for Yolo 2018 just dropped and they put together a nice video that highlights a new Serenity colorway design we did and show's of this year's new turtle board the Sugar Skull turtle painted up for your pleasure. Enjoy!
Yoloboard just released their 2017 boards and 3 of our designs
are among their top features.

Serenity for Yoloboard
The Serenity is a pattern rich yoga & sealife-lotus-loving hand-drawn board. One of the coolest features is the subtle patterned stain look we've been wanting to do with them since about 2014... finally got the manufacturing there. Enjoy.
The Polynesian for Yoloboard
The Polynesian board is this year's tattoo-inspired offering. Again, we were finally able to get the transparent stain/ink look we've been wanting to do for the last few years.
Turtle Bay for Yoloboard
The Turtle Bay design is a water colored take on the yearly turtles we've been doing for Yolo. Always love a chance to do some drippy and trippy art. These design files were so large that nearly broke all the studio's computers to get it right. The end result was definitely worth the headaches. The board also features our hand-drawn logos and taglines.
Here's a look at some random inspirations we spotted between client meetings at January's Surf Expo. The show seemed a bit smaller than years past, but there's still always heaps of inspiration around.
Here are some inspirations from around the show floor from the latest Surf Expo.
HERE ARE A FEW TEES WE DREW UP FOR 2017
On May 14th, my boys and I headed south to Vero Beach to celebrate the grand opening of one of our client's new paddle & surf shop, SeaSupGo. Earlier this year we developed their new logo, signage and other materials they'd need for the shop in preparation for their move from the Savannah Georgia area down to Vero beach. It was nice to the see the logo around the shop on all kinds of merch like hats and tees.
The Grand Openging event was low-key, but there was a steady stream of people checking things out, buying merch, sampling the snacks and taking the Bote paddle boards out for a spin.
It was a fun day. It's nice to get out of town every now and then. Congrats again to Jen and Barrett on opening the SeaSupGo shop..
We've wanted to make resources for other designers and illustrators out there for a while. Whether they need a starting point for their design or some fun elements to work with they can find them on our ever-growing Creative Market shop called Salty Surplus.
Our first 5 products are fun vector t-shirt design templates. They just debuted yesterday and were already featured on the Creative Market's blog Fresh Design Goods Fresh Design Goods.
Feel free to snag a template for yourselves and if there's a product you think we should make, let us know.
The new Yolo Original boards for 2016 have arrived and several of our designs are headlining this sweet new video. We created the tattoo design, the painterly Sea Turtle design, and the Yoga Turtle design, and the hand-drawn type on the white Richie Gudzan board.

We took in the Surf Expo January 16th and met with clients new and old. Here are some things we found interesting between meetings.
