Shaun White Snowboard
I was hired by the awesome JDK to create a signature Burton snowboard for Shaun White. The board will be out in 2007, so I was very excited to hear that Shaun was already using the board, and also won the gold at the Winter Olympics! These are the best pictures I could find of him riding the board at Turino . . . I will be posting the finished illustrations soon. Much cogratulations to Shaun on bringing home the gold.

You should at least get a chocolate gold coin or something from the US Olympic Committee for your efforts.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone! Once in a while, you can get a thrill illustrating. Most of the time work is contemplative, but hearing that he won the gold on one of my illos was thrilling, indeed. I should be getting some boards soon ( I illustrated 2 separate 'Shaun White' boards ) and I'll post pics when I can.

That is so badass! I mean, how many people get to say they designed a snowboard for the most awesome snowboarder thus far in Olympic history?

В финале хотел бы высказать явно разочарующее болельщиков мнение: о шансах «Зенита» на чемпионство, исходя из вышесказанного, говорить на сегодня не приходится. Хотя «Спартак» и ЦСКА за последнее время не усилились, а «Локомотив», судя по его приобретениям, скорее ослабел. Большие шансы есть у московского «Динамо», но над этим клубом висит какое-то историческое проклятье и неизвестно, сможет ли Юрий Семин снять его за одни год.
