Ride N Style

Last week was REDBULL’s awesome ‘Ride N Style’ event in San Fransisco.

REDBULL built an amazing ramp set up and the week prior to the event invited Me, Sam Flores, Tristan Eaton and RISK out to paint the ramps for the fixed gear riders of SF to compete on! I was psyched to be working alongside these great artists, especially collaborating with RISK as he lay down his beautiful destruction candy lacquer for us to work over the top. The metal flake really sparkled under the SF sun on race day!!

Do One Thing Well….

K1_GIFiti_PRESS-03_600

I was recently in Amsterdam to work on one of my most challenging GIF-ITI pieces yet! And it is an awesome project for Ketel One vodka, one of my drinks of choice!

Ketel One has been made in the same way by the same family for 10 generations and it is done well – as good as it can be. So for their new campaign they are celebrating the skill and craft and the idea of doing it well!

I was honored to be chosen as an example of doing it well: read the PR blurb below:

‘The world is full of people wanting to make their mark, but the ones who really stand out are the ones
who find what they love and do it as well as they possibly can. Inspired by Ketel One’s own dedicated
approach and passion to create the world’s leading high-quality crafted vodka, Do One Thing Well
celebrates the passion and skill required to achieve success in a discipline. Like Ketel One, INSA has
a bold vision and reputation for not doing things by the book. Always keen to push boundaries and take
himself further, INSA is the perfect embodiment of ‘Do One Thing Well’.

So a week of long days and longer nights hard painting by Roest in Amsterdam result in this:

A nod to a retro hand painted outdoor advertising but with the modern magic of GIF…..

Enjoy Responsibly!


INSA x Rone: Melbourne Gif-iti

So i could try and explain the effort entailed in painting a transparent blinking face over a moving cube spiral vortex, but then maybe its better just to let you enjoy the magic….

PHOTOSHOP

photoshopblog

Adobe Photoshop is a computer program that has been part of my working life ever since i can remember. I would say it has been as important to me as the computer itself. So i was very chuffed when the good folk from Photoshop got in contact to say they loved my work and would like to do an interview.

Please read the 2 part interview HERE and HERE.
