I was taught to attend other peoples art shows and events.... you should do the same... Here i am at the latest Wind N Wave party at Docs... was fun and cold... whiskey helps.. Gscott took these photos.

Dear Jon....

Your work is really awesome, so thank YOU for coming to Del Mar. Your lecture was inspiring, and helped me think of an art career in a whole different light. I wish you luck in whatever it is you're working on, and thanks again for taking time out of your life to come talk to us at Del Mar.

Re: "Thinkin' Out Loud!" the art works of Texas surfers.

Photographer, artist and filmmaker, Jon Steele teams up with Covered Up Surf and Skate shop to bring Corpus Christi patrons a new look at art. Seven Texas artists have gathered together to reveal NEW and never before seen works for sale as well as auction off pieces to raise money for local Surfrider foundation. Sector 9 Skateboards from San Diego CA will be donating boards for each artist to paint, as well as both RVCA and Volcom supplying additional artwork. "It's great to visit home and collaborate with some of the hottest artists in the area!", states Steele a long time surfer and photographer of the area. "Texas has it's own scene going on at the moment and it's great to be working with some of the best." The show runs one night only from 7pm to 10pm so be sure and check out the local works ranging from surf and skate inspired artists.
