New neighbor Drew Brophy sharing some business advice with Josh after 25 years as a professional surf artist. Drew told Josh that it’s a grind making a living as an artist, and that you need to execute on a number of fronts. Drew has been painting vehicles, commissioning paintings, selling original art, and licensing art for other products. We are super stoked to have such an inspiring and real person right next door. If you see his van parked outside, stop by and say hello to Drew. And buy some art.
Best Surfer Gifts website has a nice writeup of our latest commission of Bob Cooney’s GoPro photo from Playa Negra in Costa Rica. Bob’s wife Sharon had Josh create this piece from a GoPro frame grab for Bob’s 50th birthday. Bob said it was his favorite shot ever, and now he’s got a larger than life version painted by a friend and talented up-and-coming artist. Check out the review at Best Surfer Gifts blog.
