See this one?

“See this one?” was the title of the email this came in. I hadn’t. It looks pretty cool to me. Hope you like it.

Damian Fulton

For those of you who have seen Manufacturing Stoke you are familiar with the work of Damian Fulton, the LA based artist more recently known for his “Urban Surf” vision. Damian's work in the movie always gets the attention of the audience. There isn't a screening I've gone to that his scene doesn't get a rise out of the viewers.

What I find amazing about Damian is that he is not just an extremely talented artist but he is truly generous as well. Supporting independent filmmaker's like Pierce and Petra Kavanagh with their project, living painting at Sacred Craft to raise money or just recently supporting the Surfing Heritage Foundation for the *Enjoy Handplanes art show where he painted one as a space ship complete with a pin up girl.

Damian truly inspires me and his work makes me think.  Thank you Damian for your generosity and your imagination. Both are needed in this world!


Fascinated with the relentless love/hate experience comes with living with one foot in the city and one foot in the sea, Los Angeles-based artist Damian Fulton creates a uniquely original “Urban Surf” vision instantly relatable to those persevering in today’s over stimulated, pop-industrialized world. Influenced by Norman Rockwell and Rick Griffin among others, Fulton’s imaginative blend of storytelling, scrambled pop imagery, and painterly technique belie a respect for traditions of the past. Fulton launched his art career as a cartoonist and illustrator for Surfer Publications and painted surf posters for Ocean Pacific. After doing time at Ogilvy and Mather Advertising in Los Angeles as Senior Partner Creative Director, and Marvel Productions as VP Head of Creative Development, he’s returned to his first love with a vengeance.
