Brrrave Arrrt!

Brave Art opened on the weekend in Whistler and even though there was a big air contest on the same night, a ton of people still showed up for the show! (thanks sascha and steve for the camera work)

I showed a few canvases (two of which sold before I even got there!) and a snowboard from the 08/09 Endeavor line. Here’s my pal James aka sheOne telling me I did it all wrong.

Beautiful work.


Even more.

Tim Barnard is everywhere!

Anthony (sub dvn), Endo (Devilock) showed up as well!

James killed it in front of a nice size crowd.

The outdoor setup was cool because they had these floodlights so all the vapors got lit up as he worked.

After the party is the hotel lobby…

Thanks to Nelson and Libby over at Monster Energy for squeezing us into the Adara (they booked the entire hotel) and BIG thanks Max (endeavor) for putting me in the show!

Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    Brave Art was a great time. Anyone who is interested in this kind of work should definitely check it out when it hits Vancouver.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
