Some very very sad news, local designer/photographer Nathan Matthews lost his battle with cancer last week. He will be missed by many.

He and I both designed snowboards for Endeavor and although we didn’t know each other that well he was quick to encourage me about my work. He was amazingly talented and such a friendly person – even left encouraging comments here on this site.

This Friday, Antisocial is having a silent auction of some of Nathan’s photographs with proceeds going to his family.

February 26th. 8pm. 2337 Main St, Vancouver.

You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
