Merry Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house. I was all alone, there wasn't even a mouse. So if you know or not this is my first Christmas alone after my family moved back east. So Im doing it my way. Every year I like to watch Christmas movies leading up to Christmas day where I watch a Christmas Story all day. The movie list is something like this,

How The Grinch Stole Christmas
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Miracle On 34th Street
It's A Wonderful Life
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Nightmare Before Christmas
Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas
and Die Hard.

But this I saved a certain one just for tonight.
HOME ALONE seeing that I am home alone I find it a perfect fit. So I went and got myself a cheese all to myself.
And settled down for a nice night all alone.
And since I am posting this I decided to share a little bit more. First off is what my Christmas tree and gifts look like.

Next is my two Christmas cards I designed this year. I design one every year but I couldn't pick just one idea this year so here they are.
(a little side note about this one.
I really met Santa he was just walking around Disneyland no joke)

So all I have left to do is make sure the house is ready incase some guys show up trying to rob the house. After all this is my house I have to defend it.

Skateboarding and TRON

I said a long time ago that TRON was going to be amazing but I didnt see this coming. Each rider has a iPod on them with an app running that locates them and measures air time and then sends graphics to the ramp. Its AMAZING what we can do these days.

Two More Reason Surfing Is the Best Sport

Fact 1: Surfing helps prolong the lifes of people with Cystic Fibrosis. The Salty Air and Salt Water help break down the mucus that makes it difficult for the CF patients to breathe. So While it's not a cure, surfing is still and amazing therapy for both the lungs of CF patients. Here is a video of a foundation that takes CF patients surfing. They have 21 stops around the US each year.

Fact 2: Surfing has be proven to help respite people with autism. Case in point Clay Marzo has Asperger's. And yet it helps him to be one of the top surfers. But it also has been proven to calm people who have autism.

Pipe Masters 2010

Once a year I get to design the Billabong Pipe Masters contest site. Its a big thing to me seeing that 1000's of people will see my work. When I first started graphic design I never thought it would lead to this. Its really cool to be able to say I design the contest site for the biggest surfing event in the world. So with that I just wanted to share with you some of the work.

In Hawaii if you can't make it down to the beach you can watch the contest on HD cable TV.

I also wanted to show you what you get if you win the contest. This is a hand shaped Bolt board by Mr Pipeline Gerry Lopez and hand painted by Phil Roberts. It has this 24 gold leaf bottom. I wish I had the talent to win this beauty.

Well Enjoy and check out the webcast of the event and see some of my work
