Behind the Scenes…

I’m stoked to say my t.v. show THE PAINT SHOP is now airing to over 4.2 MILLION households in CA and AZ, and that number is growing because more and more networks are picking it up.

Upcoming episodes will be featuring other artists.  We just finished shooting episode 4, which featured famous Florida Tattoo Artist Mark Longnecker giving a tattoo to another surf artist, Jenn Holmberg, in my studio.  That same episode has me and Longnecker driving around LA checking out some of the great street art and artists.  We’re also painting vans for Escape Camper vans in LA.

Here’s a 30 second commercial that gives an idea of what the shows about.  I’m posting this for my friends and family that are far away and can’t yet tune in:

Want to stop people in their tracks?

Stand out in a Crowd?  

Create a memorable experience?

Drew Brophy has been creating magic by painting live at events since the mid 1990’s.

He has a reputation for entertaining with his fast painting skills and for holding the short attention span of passers-by.

Drew is a pro at inspiring through his warm personality and his ability to start and finish a painting in just hours.  The crowds love him!

Below are a few ways we can help your company or private event be even more amazing.

“It’s important to our clients that their guests have a memorable evening.  That’s why we hire Drew Brophy; he knows how to work a crowd.  When he paints at one of our events, we know that the guests will have a great time!”  Cami R., Account Exec., 360 Destination Concepts

TRADE SHOW BOOTHS & LIVE EVENTS 

Want to attract people to your booth?   Drew will draw them in by creating a fascinating, live painting with paint pens.  No-one will walk past your booth without stopping to look!

To sweeten the pot, he will give away posters at your event, which he will happily sign for your visitors.

He’ll paint a surfboard, guitar, canvas, even shoes; just about anything that fits in with your mission.

He will even work your logo and theme into the painting; that sort of design work comes easily to Drew.

Here’s just a few companies that Drew has painted live for:

The NFL, Walter Foster Publishing, Hard Rock Casino Las Vegas, Ugg Australia, Aerial 7 at NAMM Expo, Converse, Hinano Tahiti, …Lost, Surf-the-Earth, MiOcean and many, many more.

PRIVATE / CORPORATE PARTIES 

Private parties, charity events, sales meetings:  Drew has painted live at every type of event and venue.

He’s worked with some of the top Event Production Companies in California, including 360 Destination Group, LA Party Designs (LAPD), and Destination Concepts, to name a few.

From painting at a private party for the owners of the Nation’s NFL Football Teams to charity events like MiOcean, Drew has entertained many different crowds of people.

Drew uses non-toxic, non-messy, no-smell Uni Posca Paint Pens.  This medium allows for a free flow of bright colors and for fast painting, which comes in handy at events.

The beauty of having a fast painter is this:  your guests will enjoy the pleasure of seeing a painting come to life right before their eyes!

We offer many different options for your events.  Here’s just a few:

  • Live Surfboard Painting:  Drew will paint a theme that is meaningful to either the event or the company.  If the surfboard is being purchased, the companies logo may be worked into the painting.  (Many companies give the surfboard away either as a raffle item or as an award).
  • Live Painting on Canvas, or any other Object
  • Small paintings available as gift for your attendees
  • Custom painting(s) specifically for the company/event and prints made for attendee gifts
  • Ready-made prints of Drew’s art as give-away for attendees
  • Custom packages available – we can do just about anything you need

OUTDOOR EVENTS/SPORT CONTESTS: 

Add fascination to your festival or fair by having Drew paint a mural while your attendees watch!
.
The possibilities are endless, but here’s a tried and true concept:  Drew will paint a mural on wood, and it will be designed for photo opportunities during your event.
.
Drew has painted murals at many events, including surfing events such as the Pipeline Masters in Hawaii and contests such as the Battle of the Paddle races in Dana Point, CA.
.
See an example of the Rainbow Sandals Battle of the Paddle mural Drew painted on-site in 2009.  It doubled as a mural and a photo-backdrop for the awards ceremony.

Our TV Show has Launched!

After three years of creating and cultivating THE PAINT SHOP TV Show, we are so pleased to announce that it is now on the air in Southern California!

We are very confident that it will expand to cover most of the country.  It just takes a little time…

Our goal with this tv show is to inspire and educate people on the viability of art as an actual career.

It’s also a great way to show friends and family what happens behind the scenes of a lifestyle art studio.

We teamed up with Executive Producer Brian ILL of Crystal Cove Media to create this show for tv.

For the past three years Brian and his crew have been documenting Drew and our work at the studio.

Our first episode started airing this week and the 6-episode series will run through spring and summer.

THE PAINT SHOP chronicles the process of what a professional surf lifestyle artist does, including the good times as well as the challenging.  There’s never a dull moment when it comes to the business of art!  And every day we learn new lessons in life, love and artwork.

If you are located in Southern California, please check out the show times at THE PAINT SHOP.TV.

If you don’t get THE PAINT SHOP in your area, ask your local networks to pick it up!  The more that people ask, the more likely we’ll get it on the air everywhere.

Please tune in, and let us know what you think.

Life is Good – Drew & Maria

Whats up Drew.  Also an East coaster here.  Here’s my most recent work in progress.

I was Inspired by your Van paintings and decided to just go for it on my own.  I’ll be finishing her up come springtime.

Your work forever changed the way I look at mine, and thats what it’s all about …

You give the gift of inspiration to thousands of people, so keep it up and keep it real my man.”   Greg Mills

Thanks, Greg, for sending the photo in.  Killer painting!

I was so excited when I had the opportunity to paint vans for Escape Camper Vans.  It was such a release to be able to paint anything I wanted on these blank canvases that would be rolling around all over America.

It’s been my plan all along (more…)

Neptune Original Painting by Drew Brophy 2011For the seventh year in a row, Drew’s been asked by the Ocean Institute to create the cover artwork for their summer programs.   Here’s Neptune!

You can buy a beautiful Giclee Print on Canvas of this painting  in our STORE.

UPDATE TO THIS POST (March 2011): The O-I ended up not using this artwork after all.

We were greatly disappointed at first, because of the hard work involved in it, but it all worked out great in the end, as everything always does.

An art collector named Tim Smith saw it on our website and purchased the original painting a week later.

So now Neptune is in a good home. Giclee prints of Nepture are available now in our store. Check it out!
