This is my first complete series since 2015 and took 2 years to put together. Im typically not drawn to external subject matters but found the ocean the most meaningful.
For all the days I've spent caught in the mix of the daily grind I often forget this mysterious world and healing entity is only 40 minutes of home. Simply put, for an introvert heading for complete cynicism, the beach is a complete contrast and refuge from my sanity.
The esthetic of these paintings were inspired by surf brands of the 80's. Growing up the very first thing I learned to draw was a cartoon wave. Going back and exploring the style was probably the most positive and zen in process. Like breathing life out of nostalgia into a new world. Possibly the first id ever intended to create a vibe peace.
