A little over a month ago I started to create concept art for racing kayaks, surfskis and the occasional SUP. What I began as a fun personal creative outlet for Instagram has instead connected me to a global community of athletes and enthusiasts in a deeply gratifying way.
It's interacting and collaborating with athletes in headline grabbing places like Israel, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Russia that I've enjoyed the most. Some are kids. Many are young athletes pursuing Olympic dreams and many others are in their later years remembering better years. All of them are living life to the best of their ability. Just like me. Just like you. Just like us. I've learned we are more alike then we are different. You can check out some of the art here: https://www.instagram.com/fasterfarther/
