Today’s Warm-Up: Coastin’ 
Moving to Seattle has re-energized my passion for the things I already love to do… But the theme for the next 12 months is to RESET my life and experience as many new things as possible. And my venerable and trustworthy friends  have done what good friends are supposed to do: Introduce and enable. 
So, new friend, new Penny Arcade employee, and new Seattle resident, Dabe just hooked me up with his old longboard, and I’ve been LOVING IT! It doesn’t matter if I’m just going a couple blocks, I’m riding this mofo till the wheels fall off. I think this makes him my skate dad? I dunno how this works. But either way, him and Gavin are also going to walk me through skating on a regular board as well, and I’m super looking forward to it. Busted up shins and all.

California Son

Dear California, For longer than any other place and for far more significant moments, you have been my home. Yet I am afraid that after such a long and storied history, I have come the painful realization that I no longer belong in your embrace. It is not as if anyone else has my heart as you have had mine, but after defending the idea that I can stay alongside you for the better part of the past year, I have been worn thin. Much too thin. And I can not hold on any longer.

I must go.

And for as long as I draw breath, there will be a special place in my heart where I will keep the California sun that you have bestowed. Instead of using your warmth for myself, though, I will try to find new places to shine it and new people to share it with. As I explore the vast potential the rest of the world has to offer, I will champion your light, giving it as though it were a part of me.

Because, California, you will always be a part of me.

I will love you always.

Farewell.

-Nick

We all Scream. 
I wanted to do a piece to commemorate my move to Seattle. Something that represents the fact that I&#8217;m in a new place, but still the same old Nick that will shout down an ice-cream truck no matter how sketch it looks. There&#8217;s a lot of inside jokes and ideas in this piece that will always remind me of my first week in this new, yet familiar world.
Dear Seattle,
I&#8217;m home.

"Too great is the sacrifice we place upon the altar of change."
And last but not least, here&#8217;s a piece that I&#8217;ve been working on and off for the past month or so. You can buy a print of this piece riiiiiight here. Maybe one day, I&#8217;ll have more stuff for you to cop if you like it, but for now that&#8217;s all I got!

And here&#8217;s a quick doodle I did of close friend and Cube Master, Ryan for his birthday. I&#8217;m pretty sure garruk is one of his favorite Planeswalkers. :)
