CSU-Pueblo Art Major, Aaron Findley, is the winner of the monthly “Kenny Anderson Payday” contest sponsored by “SKATEboarding” magazine.
Findley answered the art call for “an epic moment in skateboarding” with his watercolor based on a scene from the movie “Fully-Flared”. The skater in the painting is Mike Mo; skateboarding a handrail while the stairs explode behind him. (View large image)
Among the prizes Findley received were skateboard gear, clothing, and shoes. Through a fortunate series of events, Findley spoke with pro-skater Kenny Anderson, benefactor and juror of the contest and was encouraged to submit his portfolio for additional illustrations used in the letter’s-to-the-editor section of the magazine.
Aaron’s watercolor was presented as a gift to Kenny Anderson.
Way to go Aaron Findley!
