My last hand painted deck of 2016. I was able to turn this messed up board into one of my favourite pieces from that year. I tried something new with an idea I had in mind which I explored through self reflection. 2016 was all about progression, change and all the destructive and creative forces that came with it. I pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone while developing my style, through a commitment to trying new mediums and even pushing forward through mental and physical pain.
So here it is: a fish coming out of water, transforming into a strong Phoenix about to take flight and face the world! This has some serious stucco like texture which I love!
