Last week I went on quite the whirlwind of a trip on a leg of the Rome Snowboards movie tour. No we weren’t hopping around from spot to spot on a jet… it was me and 6 dudes in a van from Southern California to Seattle. Check out the gallery and story on SNOWBOARDERmag.com

You can also download Rome’s full movie “The Shred Remains” on iTunes.

Do Something Everyday- with Paddock

17 December 2009, 10.56 | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 comment »


A buddy of mine, Mike Paddock, the art director for hardgoods over at Rome Snowboards, started up an interesting personal project. In an effort to keep his creative wheels spinning, he began this thing he calls “Do Something Everyday”. Paddock bought a 4″x 6″ sketchbook and and plans to fill a page everyday with what he considers “visual ramblings”. It’s something every designer/artist wishes they could do, create something new every day, but the task is more daunting than you would expect. Especially when art is your profession, it is hard to find time for personal projects. So hats off to Paddock for his commitment.  Here are a few favorites he sent over from his book so far. Keep an eye on Rome’s blog for more posts from Paddock and the rest of the people behind Rome.
