This year, the finale of my Spring Tour in Japan was the 2012 Greenroom Festival in Yokohama Japan. I have participated in the Greenroom Festival now for the past 4 years and it is one of the events I look forward to each year and would never want to miss! The Greenroom Festival is a 2 day indoor/outdoor festival dedicated to the environment, the beach lifestyle, surfing, surf movies, music and art from around the world.
This year was especially great because the festival just keeps getting better and better each year and we got to see many old artist friends and meet some new ones as well as see some great live music including one of my favorite newer bands, The Drums!
This year I was also asked to create the original art for the girls tee shirt for the Greenroom Festival with Cher Shore from Japan! The original art for the design is now available for sale on my website, if you click on the image below, it will take you right there for purchase details.

This year, I wanted to create something a bit different, so I created a full scene that I titled "Let's Go Surf"
It is a full scene consisting of multiple pieces that depict an idealistic Waikiki Beach/Surf day complete with a rainbow band consisting of 7 different original skateboards! I was so stoked on how the whole piece came together and it also tied in with the debut of my new collaboration surfboard model that is now available as a limited edition of only 100 with Two Crows Surfboards also from the North Shore of Oahu in Hawai'i.

As always, The Greenroom Festival in 2012 did not disapoint and it was nothing but fun, we even got to sit backstage and watch The Drums, Donovan Frankenreiter and Slightly Stoopid to name a few.

After a great 2 weeks that flew by, we returned back to the North Shore to sunny beautiful weather (no waves unfortunately) but a couple of great days on the beach to unwind and relax a bit with the dogs!
