The Story
I travel a lot. It’s where I get my creative inspiration, along with following my passions of surfing and snowboarding. This tends to lead me high into the mountains, or far away into tropical lands. I love it. When I’m at these locations, I snap photos and draw every day. Similar to a tourist walking around and taking photos of monuments, but for me, I look the other way and deep dive into the people and their everyday lives. I’m obsessed with these moments. I walk around taking crappy iPhone photos, along with my Mamiya 6 to capture expressions and movements.

When I do this, I’ll post up on a table, ground, sand, you name it, and pull out my watercolors to capture the moment that just happened. The sketches are fast and a cool brain dump for me to catalog. I’ll later go back to my library of sketches and photos to create a fantastical narrative and composition that gives a feeling of a real place or location. Whether that’s a nostalgic feeling we’ve already been to or a new place we want to visit with friends and family.

I’ve always loved sharing my stories. For this NFT collection, I want to share this adventure with you as it means so much to me. Central America is a special place for me as I go back often to surf and explore. In a way, it’s tradition to revisit this place to find that solitude and a way to learn more about myself.
