I'm going to snorkel and freedive in the coral reefs of the Florida Keys to draw underwater and I need your help to do it!
We did it!!! In less than 4 days we raised the $1000 necessary to make this project happen. It’s really GOING TO HAPPEN!!! You guys are too fucking awesome. THANK YOU!
We don’t have to stop yet!
Any funding received past the $1000 will be used to make this project even more awesome. My friends documenting the trip above and below water planned on paying their own way to come along and help out so let’s help THEM get their asses out there!
Perhaps I can scuba dive for one day of the trip to draw in deeper waters or install an entire interactive aquarium at my first show…Let’s do it!
All the rewards are still up for grabs so KEEP SHARING & KEEP SPREADING THE WORD!

Let's draw underwater!!! But how?
For three days straight I'm going to snorkel and freedive in the thriving coral reefs of the Florida Keys to draw and draw and draw whatever I think is going on down there.
Perhaps I'll draw lobsters mating or a brilliant school of scholarly fish riding the bus. Perhaps I'll draw a shark wrestling a parrotfish or an eel playing the harmonica in his cave. Perhaps I'll see all of these wonderful sights and just end up drawing an awkward portrait of the snorkeling boat captain. The only thing I know for sure is this is going to be totally fucking awesome & totally underwater.
At the end of each day I'll return to land to ink & watercolor the worst drawings to be used in my first ever solo exhibition at Studio@620, opening January 27th, 2012!
For this to be totally awesome, we need snorkel gear, waterproof Yupo paper, pencils, tickets for boat rides out to the reefs, a campsite, and a waterproof GoPro HD Video Camera to help make a kiQa55 documentary of this adventure.
I have an entire itinerary ready to go, my supplies and equipment are picked out and waiting, I know the names of the captains of the snorkeling boats I’ll be riding with, I’ve studied the driving directions, and I’ve got a lot of friends ready to help. The only thing I need now is YOU!
I need YOUR help in bold italics!
If you know somebody, anybody, who would be interested in this underwater drawing project, do share! Explain to your dentist Frank, your high-school crush Ariel, your mother-in-law Margaret, and of course your best friend Dave how fucking cool you are because you helped make this project happen.
