“I had the privilege of collaborating with Drew Brophy for a meet and greet event my brand was hosting in San Clemente. Maria and Drew both were flexible with scheduling, professional, and extremely easy to partner with. For someone not connected to the surfing scene, Maria took the time to explain to me the details and brought her own creativity to the mix. Drew has the ability to easily generate a vision in his head and transfer that to his work….truly amazing.” Brad Burns Sr. Account Manager, Think Motive
“We worked with Drew to transform our (Verizon FiOS) VW Bus into a work of art that celebrated the SoCal lifestyle during the 2013 US Open of Surf. It was effortless working with Drew and Maria. They had very little time to plan and design, yet the final result was more than what we could have asked for. Anyone who walked past our VW bus as Drew was painting it, couldn’t help themselves from stopping and observing. He was extremely personable and engaging as well, often inviting children to help paint. I hope that the opportunity to work with Drew and Maria again presents itself very soon.” Bryan Babiarz, Art Director at Marketing Werks.
“I hired Drew to live paint the backdrop of our booth at Dreamforce 2013 in San Francisco (you know, that little show :). The booth measured 7.5′ x 15′, so it was not a small project. I wanted to do it live at the show to attract attention and keep booth visitors stopping by to see the progress.
It was one of the best decisions we made for the show. Everyone who walked by stopped and admired, complimented us on standing out from the crowd, and just loved the work Drew did. He did a top notch job – quality, detail, creativity. And it made one of the top 50 photos from Dreamforce 2013 taken from Salesforce themselves!
Drew was fantastic to work with. He took control over the process and helped us focus on key decision points: the vision, the message, and the style. He took care of nearly everything else such as materials, canvas, setup, mock-ups, revisions, etc.
I would absolutely recommend Drew for any creative style projects you are looking to undertake. Just the nicest guy, great artist, and hard worker. What more could you want!” Dion Picco, Senior Director Product Marketing at Progress DataDirect
“I have worked with Drew over the past 15 years on many graphic projects for Liquid Force. Drew has brought great creativity and life to these jobs. He has always delivered “the goods” and has been very easy and fun to work with.” Jimmy Redmon, Founder, Liquid Force Wakeboards
“Drew’s art defined our best-selling line of Liquid Force Wakeboards called the Trip Series back in 1996. He also created the Jeff Hubbard line of BZ Pro Board models at the turn of the century.
We worked together for years through 2007, building an amazing range of Morey Boogie Boards (for Wham O) that featured Drew’s original concepts and unique background effects. These stand out as the most successful body boards that ever retailed – EVER.
It is not a coincidence that Drew is the leading artist in today’s surf and skate scene. His art is like gold. He is the Real Deal and I am blessed to have had the pleasure to work with him through these last two centuries!” Michael “Petey” Peterson, Designer
“It’s been absolutely great working with Drew on a unique project creating a GreenGraffiti design of 8 x 10 meters (24×30 fett) in two very highly visible, trafficed locations in Germany.
Drew immediately connected with the concept and brought it to life. His creative work captured the spirit of the outdoors in an absolutely fantastic way combining it perfectly with the look and feel of our brand, Keen. His design exceeded our expectqtions, and the eye-catching details received a lot of attention from people passing by.” Nol Gerritse, Director of Product Marketing – Global at Keen Footwear
“My wife and I met Drew years ago at a surf shop in Santa Cruz and have long been a fan of his art. He was really nice when we met him and signed posters for us to frame up. This year for my birthday my wife reached out to Drew and Maria to commission a custom painted surfboard. My wife had a great experience working with Drew and Maria to plan for my board and the end result is amazing. It is a dream come true for me to have a Drew Brophy painting that Drew made for me especially, and on top of that Drew and Maria are great people that really care about creating something special. I am completely stoked and highly recommend Drew Brophy!” Colm Nelson, co-creator of Halo 3 and Black Ops.
“We’re stoked to have Drew Brophy’s art on our Indo Boards! His art is fantastic and have proved to be top Indo Board sellers.” Hunter Joslin, Founder, IndoBoard
“Drew Brophy is a talented contemporary surf artist who worked with the Ocean Institute in designing educational catalog covers for our summer programs for 7 years running. The artwork was used not only for print material but also apparel and large building banners. We also enjoyed having Drew showcase his artwork at the Ocean Institute on two separate occasions for periods of 5 months each.
We have partnered on a number of events together including a speakers event held and filmed at the Ocean Institute bringing together 7 of the world’s most elite big wave surfers. He is a very creative individual.” Bentley Cavazzi, V.P. of Marketing and Business Development, Ocean Institute, CA.
“Working with Drew on the book illustrations for LADYFISH was one of the best professional experiences I have ever had working with an artist. Not only did he exceed all expectations I learned a great deal from him! I highly recommend Drew Brophy for any project!” Darrell Bloom, Marketing/Creative Director at BaseballASAP
“Working with Drew on our signature collection piece for Nada Worry ambassador and Great Lakes surfer Burton Hathaway was a dream come true. Since first laying eyes on the Liquid Force Trip boards he designed in the late 90s, we were huge fans and wanted to bring it full circle by having Drew design something us.
To be honest, I was a bit intimidated going into my first call with Drew knowing that I’d be on the phone with a legend but he was a down to earth dude. His ability to take the raw concept that was rattling around in our heads to paper on the first attempt was absolutely incredible. Within hours of our initial conversation, Drew was emailing over sketches reflecting our idea and it was spot on.
The bottom line is that Drew’s creativity is amazing and his style is unmatched! For a young company like ours, commissioned artwork from Drew elevated our brand instantly and put us on the map with retailers that we’ve been hoping to partner with for some time. It’s still surreal having our brand associated with him…and I love to show my son the detail in the original that is hanging in our living room.
We’re already planning out new concepts for Drew and hope to develop a long-term partnership with him. Thanks again for bringing something so amazing to the Great Lakes/freshwater surfing sub-culture!” Rob Barse, Founding Partner at Nada Worry LLC
