Liz requested an illustration of her brother Peter; pictured on the right. One of her ideas was an illustration with him on his Harley. You all know I'm a fan of Harleys, but I also know that if you're going to draw an illustration of a guy on his "Hog" you need a photo of his own bike, because drawing just any old Harley won't do.
The other idea Liz had was an illustration of Pete surfing. Apparently, back in the day... Pete use to spend a a lot of time in Huntington Beach, around lifeguard station #16. So, while Pete didn't really spend anytime on the breakers anymore, Liz thought it would be a very nostalgic gift for him.
Here, then, is what I created.
This was another fun one to create. I did a little internet research on life guard stations. Most California stations look like this one. Then I also found a number of photos of this unique pier, drawn in the back ground, in Huntington Beach. It all seem to come together very well.
What do you think... dudes?
