Posted 11/02/2007 10:29:00 by i am vans
I was born and raised in South Texas spending most of my childhood on the beaches of South Padre Island and up and down the Pacific coast of Mexico. Being from a family of both surfers and artists I fell in love with the lifestyle. Art came first in my life I was born with this urge to doodle all over anything and everything. I started surfing fairly early in life and just couldn't and still can't ive without it. My artwork is influenced greatly by who I am and my love of surf culture and Mexican folk art. I love adding my own unique touches on just about anything I can get my hands on surfboards, skateboards, boardshorts, shirts, shoes, and even the inside of my old car fell victim to an artsy rampage. I think it's important to express your creativity and share it with the world! 1. What is you favorite pair of Vans and why? Classic slip-ons, theyâ€™re comfortable & I can make them my own. 2. Describe your style? Laidback, casual, but with an element of surprise. 3. Your Style Icon is? I love Gwen Stefani she is definitely a trailblazer. 4. Your wardrobe must haves include? Tanks, long shorts, my custom VANS. 5. How do you plan on spending your free time? Surfing Mexico. 6. The best advice ever given to you was? Don't drink the water! 7. The best advice you can give is? Be true to YOURSELF! 8. Your Personal style philosophy is? If it's hassle free, a vibrant print, not so main stream, colorful and it reflects who I am, I'll wear it. 9. Words to live by? Life isn't about finding yourself; it's about creating yourself!
