S2011call_HaiMissing_Piece_HaiFirst news post! Annual fundraiser Skater-aid is a silent auction event meets mobile skate park; a fun grassroots cause. This was my second year entering a deck, used skateboards artfully converted into paintings, sculpture, even furniture, so help us beat last years record of 83 entries. Last year’s piece was a inspired by current events and a satirical take on the Hermit tarot card using a somber, darker pallet a vertical format with the New Orleans’ Super Dome as the skyline. Where as this year’s project was simply more fun and free with an open pallet this stylized mural exploration is a mix of watercolor and FW acrylic inks on a broken, horizontal board. Since this is a late posting, check out the new online auction feature while the art is on gallery display a month prior to the event. I look forward to this event all year trying to get as many artist buddies to enter via word of mouth. Normal deadline is August so if you’re interested plan for next year, breath new life into old skateboards and join the cause. All donations will go towards the Brain Cancer Foundation for Children. For more background on the story of Skater-aid, please check out the site info.

James illustrative work is driven by his passion for the craft. Although James possesses countless illustrative abilities, I find that he has a real niche for what I would describe as an abstract, hyper-realism. I commissioned James to create a very stylized title for me to use within my Youtube web series comedy sketch, "Hoop Conspiracies: Boston". James was incredibly easy to work with and not only captured my envisioned concept, but greatly surpassed my expectations. James Hartzell is an excellent illustrator with an extremely wide range of diversity and I highly recommend his art.
