Way way back in the autumn of 2010 I was contacted by the folks at Burton Snowboards and asked if I would like to design a pair of gloves for their winter 2012/13. Obviously I said yes (because, come on, it’s Burton), and worked on a calavera/day of the dead themed design.
Artwork was signed off and sent off, and then began a very very long waiting game, thanks to the substantial lead times needed in the production of snowboarding gear. Now, almost two years on from doing them, they are in the new season catalogue and online. Honestly i was slightly worried that seeing them now, so long after doing them, they wouldn’t stand up against my current work. But you know what? They totally do. I’ll try not to think about what that means with regards to two years of improvement in my current work.
So there you go - if you’re headed to the slopes this season, get your mitts in these. You can see them online here; not available to buy yet, but i have no doubt they will be soon…
