A prominent spearfishing club here in Orange County called OC SPEAROS will be hosting their next club meeting in front of PELAGIC HQ in Costa Mesa on June 20th at 7pm! We’ll be doing a live gyotaku demo of a fish provided by the club (not sure what it is just yet). Sounds like it’ll be quite a large and fun event! Looking forward to meeting you all there!
Absolutely honored to be chosen by premiere saltwater fly fishing magazine 'Tail' @tailflyfishingmagazine to create an original piece specifically for their May/June issue and to be showcased in a rather flattering article covering my process and theory.
Limited edition reproduction prints on Japanese washi paper of the full mahimahi spread will also be available via their site.
Our third gyotaku demonstration with Patagonia, this time at their outlet store in Salt Lake City!!
It’s neat to see how each store differs in personality, but they all share the same gentle passion for the outdoors and a loving enthusiasm for wanting to share it with others.
The event was filled with fly fishing enthusiasts, music, food, fly tying, fly fishing films, and lastly our gyotaku demonstration. Absolutely enjoyed every minute of it!
Thank you again, Patagonia!!
I had the absolute pleasure of sharing my art in a room (and the back room!) filled with guests celebrating the book launch of Patagonias recent fly fishing book entitled, “Simple Fly Fishing”, which showcases my art on its cover.
The feedback was overwhelming, I got to make many new friends and the doors for further collaborations opened up! Not to mention, I got to meet the founder himself, Yvon Chouinard!! What an honor, especially coming from a company that is adheres to its mission statement in protecting and educating, our natural world that we should all be stewards of.
