- IF YOU ARE STILL LEARNING PHOTOSHOP OR ILLUSTRATOR, DON'T
KNOW THE MEANING OF "Clipping Paths", MAKING PRETTY GREEN AND

New Action Sports Adventure Series
We finally rounded out our first comic book series called, "The Gimmies". It's about a group of rag-tag bunch of kids who selfishly defend their session spots from the evil of corporate greed and development. They use their wit, charm and some-what special abilities to tear up everything near and far as well keep themselves out of serious trouble.
Read up more on, The Gimmies by visiting their websites.

Hope you all like. If you have any feedback on the story or artwork, please let us know.

Soup Goes SIA
We sent Dan on a quick and dirty trip to Denver, CO to visit some of our clients and see what's new at the Snowsports Industries America 2012 Tradeshow. As always, it's fun to see what each manufacturer is coming out with and how they are shaping the snowsports industry. By far the snowsports push the limits of art and design in their products.

Our wakeboard designs for both Bylerly and Hyperlite Wakeboards are hitting stores now. We're pretty stoked on how these turned out and can't wait to see them in person. Take a quick little look at what we did.

We recently were asked to create cover artwork for an Austrailian Action Sports magazine. We answered a Q&A on the present, past and future of SoupGraphix. They also showed a handful of our board graphics.
