KITEBOARD RIDER VIDEOS
A Dominican kiteboarder who currently rides for Gaastra and Vooray, and lives in Norway. On his visit to Cabarete we filmed at 3 different locations over the span of a few days, and put together a short edit. All shot on the 7D with the help of my brother who also took all the photos. Check out his site for more shots! photosgabriel.com
A very talented kiteboarder with a riding style that is very playful and reminds you why this sport is so fun. Always a pleasure to see him ride I decided to bring my camera out and get some shots. This is a short edit from that day.
Cinematography, Film, Photography
From a series of drawing where i would do an initial rough sketch with a pen, and then work in all of the lines into the final rendering, with microns and paint markers.
Character Design, Digital Art, Illustration
This was a random ink drawing i started that i got a little carried away with the size. Instead of forcing the illustration to fit on one page I expanded my canvas. Its def nice to work big since you have more canvas to add details, but not completely necessary to go THIS big. Good experiment tho...

Red Shark Surfboard
I finally painted my surfboard! I've been wanting to for quite a while but didnt know where to start. Ended up doing the outlines with a paint marker, then added color with good old fashioned acrylic paint and brushes. Then went over the outlines again with the paint marker. Has a glossy clear finish for protection and shine! Hopefully this will be the first of many more to come.
Rock N'Rolla Monkey
This was a painting inspired by one of the scenes from the movie "Rock n Rolla". It was painted with acrylic on a canvas. I wanted to create some loud and colorful with some type of humor to it.
Lift Shirt Designs
Illustration designs, and some character concepts for apparel. Created for Lift Kiteboarding, which is a kiteboarding apparel company based on the east coast.
Illustration, Print Design, Digital Art
This is a hand crafted board made by the local kiteboarder Todd Mitchell. Its a good size canvas and I had never painted on wood before so when Todd asked me to paint it, I was pretty excited. . Not exactly sure where the idea came from but I knew i wanted to keep the wood texture for the background. I knew i wanted to draw an octopus so i started with that. Then there where also some screw settings for the footpads so i incorporated them into the painting, and the Metal Munchers were born! Their silver tribal look is a result of their constant hunger for metal. The bamboo was a natural design choice since they could add to the overall composition without distracting too much from the focus. The Crimson Ape logo was made with a screen, and touched up by hand. Anyway, I really enjoyed painting this, and playing with the different mediums, techniques, and having a nice wood canvas to do it on.
