My ideas have ideas II


This is about how an idea can trigger so many other ideas in other people’s minds.
In 1987 I was trying to figure out a way to draw on surfboards, I was tired of the airbrush look and wanted to do something that would allow me to have more control and that would let me go faster, so I started experimenting with markers.

I’m not quite sure how many times I failed, boards that never dried when the lacquer coating was sprayed on, or the ones that started running all over the board, but one day I discovered these fat markers in a Japanese store in Ala Moana, and boom, everything worked. Posca markers are now used all over the world by kids that want to customize their surfboards, many artists took this technique even further and I can say that I am really proud how many creative ideas sprouted from that first idea I had in 87.

Original art on surfboard, this board has been shaped on a repurposed polyurethane blank, using acrylic paints and Posca markers underneath the polyester resin that has a gloss polished finish.

73×19″, comes with stainless steel hanging brackets.

Although the surfboard shape is meant to be functional, it’s not meant to be surfed on, but to be displayed as an art piece.
