R.I.P. Nathan Matthews

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.
