Portrait of Al Bensten

Every now and then a job comes around that's too good to pass up. When author, photographer, surfcaster Zeno Hromin asked if I would be interested in illustrating a cover for his online magazine of surfcasting legend Al Bensten, I couldn't resist. After a few back and forth emails outlining details I immediately sketched this up and it was a go.

Zeno and his talented team of writers, photographers and designers created this online publication to feed surf fishermens' hunger for a shore-specific publication, designing it into a central hub blog. The magazine is 100 percent online and also free. Check it out for yourself:

Here's what we came up with for the cover. Al kneeling over a cow striper which fell for his signature rigged eels. While your digging around, check out my profile on pages 12-15. Thanks again Z! Prints will be available soon.
