Good times. Winter 2012 drawing class in the city. Teacher was intense, but the models were great.
Tee shirt project for local mountain bike group.
Memorial Tee I designed and printed in memory of my brother, Dan Slarve. He passed in the spring of 2008. Every year, people he inspired, his closest friends, and family all get together to have a dinner in his memory. This shirt was given away at the dinner in 2012. Printed in Grey

Visited a new friend who has been tremendously helpful already, and I’m not completely sure why, although I take his help gladly. Let’s call him Mac. I visited Mac’s project today. It’s a spectacular house with new steel straps, recessed lights, HUGE beams, it even has fire sprinklers in it. It was really exciting to walk through and experience something that was nothing only…

I LEARN. I GROW. I DO. I BELIEVE IT IS NEVER TOO LATER TO START LIVING A DREAM. I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR.
This guy used to be my idol in college. Canadian came to the US to sell T-Shirts. He’s in the news a lot, but he’s still livin’ the dream. Love you Dov, try not to get arrested on your way to the top. This was a public announcement they made in the paper when they were just getting started…
