Toms Shoes Painting Extravaganza

Downtown Ventura was a happening place at Wetsand Surfshop for the 4th Annual Art, Music and TOMS Shoes Event. Here is how it works:

1. Come to Wetsand Surfshop
2. Purchase a pair of Toms Shoes.
3. Get your Toms custom styled.
4. Hang with your friends and meet new friends.
5. Listen to music!

The DJ was jammin. It was like listening to my own personal playlist that I listen to at home! The people were all so psyched on their newly painted shoes. The artists were superb. And there was also a cute golden retriever dog hanging out in the store, which makes me really happy. Yippee for a successful event.

So....here are some photos from the night!

Ando and Friends Coloring Contest 2010!!

Here is my entry for the Ando & Friends Coloring Contest this year! I had a lot of fun working on it. It is completely recycled!

Steps I took in making a recycled fun piece:

Step 1. Go down to your secret spot on the beach and gather some sweet materials including: sea rocks, sea glass, driftwood mini pieces, shells galore!

Step 2. Go into your closet and dig out the hemp!

Step 3. Sort your findings in color groups...pretty time consuming. ; o

Step 4: Get the Elmer's glue out and get busy gluing away! Stay in the lines!

Step 5: Rejoice because you have spent hours creating a fun new piece of recycled art!!!

Step 6: Write a poem about the piece...here is my poem, entitled "Sandy Hair Sliding"

-Sea glass, sea foam, sea wood, hemp.
-Sea rock, sea shells, sea green, fun!

-Toob city ridin' the Alaya,
-Hemp trail flew,
-Driftwood barrel,
-Take me through.

-Stylin' Ando threads of seaglass,
-Green, white, & brown,
-Sandy Hair Slidin'
-For the love of ocean I've found.

Step 7: Kiss your piece goodbye, she is off to the art contest! Sianara!

Air dry your laundry...all the cool kids do it!

It's so true! Let nature dry your laundry and save energy! And most importantly, the birdys love the new perch you will provide for them. They will sing birdy songs in your laundry's honor! I promise, they've done it for me countless times.

Love


A new illustration I created with "giving love" in mind! Love is all around us, we should all give love as much as we can and it will come back to each and every one of us! The entire universe is connected and love is what binds it all together! haha, ain't that the truth. xxoo

Faria Beach Tee

I was recently asked by a good friend to design a tee for my favorite surf and burrito spot, Faria Beach! Faria Beach Cafe, the new burrito stand right on the beach, provides snacks for hungry beach goers! I can't count how many times I have been so hungry, but the the waves were so good, that I couldn't possibly leave! Now Faria Beach has its own cafe! Yippee! I was more than happy to create an illustration of Faria Beach, that is forever engraved into my mind. It is a really special place and I can't wait to sport the sweet design proudly. Faria Beach represent! So head on down to Faria Beach Cafe and get yours! Tees coming soon!

A Story of Three Bottles

There once was a bottle who lived in a shoe.

Just kidding...the bottle never lived in a shoe, that is just ridiculous.

The bottle did have a secret to tell...and it was...ummm.....

Stop being silly and Recycle me!

Then there was another bottle hangin' out on the side of the road.

This bottle had dim past, filled with malt liquor, and was ready for a bright future.

This lil' 40 ouncer was psyched on his new paint job!


Last, and certainly not least, was the third bottle, full of olive oil, chillin' on a kitchen counter.

This bottle was ready for a change of scenery, bored with staring at the salt and pepper shakers.


And so... three birdy bottles were born!


Dah, dunna, nah! Birdy Power!
