I try and give credit sometimes to the images barrowed for my paintings. There was this picture in Transworld of Victoria Jealouse(a Burton rider) doing this awesome carve, and I really wanted to paint it for a base graphic. With permission from Mike and Pete(the owners of Mervin), I decided to make the painting look obvious who the snowboarder was , and where it came from. It is a diorama the size of an actual board 160cm long. The top art is an abstracted version of world flags totally influenced by my experience doing the one-off art tops. Both paintings are acrylic on posterboard. To clear anykind of controversy, I sent memos to whom it may concern, Burton, Jon Foster(the photographer), and Victoria . I never heard from any of them, but later on I traded one of the boards to Victoria for one of her Freedom models.
