KOOKS Surfing Magazine #1

Kooks Surfing Magazine Cover Illustration No. 1 Mockup

Hey there fellow surfer kook*!

I have to disappoint you dude, but this brand new gnarly surfing magazine doesn’t really exist. Unfortunately! It’s just ficticious and serves as a canvas for a series of free surf art works I create from time to time. But I could imagine that such a satirical surf mag would be fun to read.

The characters come alive while I doodle with no specific plan 9 in my mind. The general appearance is inspired by a humorous look at the surf culture paired with a gentle stylistic nudge from the Eighties.

This is part one of the series. Follow the links to find further cover illustrations:

RECKLESS Wakeboards R.R. Series 2018

Julian Koke, founder of RECKLESS.WAKE commissioned some graphics for their 2018 wakeboard line. This was my first wakeboard design job and I definitely enjoyed it. These guys are totally laid-back and I was quite free in the design process. The only condition: no skulls.

The idea for the theme came to me while doodling around with the relationship between wakeboarding and skateboarding in mind. The results are outrageous laser beams shooting underwater creatures.

All boards are entirely made at their Hamburg based workshop. You can find a video of the production process down below the project presentation.
