FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS: SDSFF FEATURES ARTIST JOE HODNICKI
The San Diego Surf Film Festival is honored to announce Joe Hodnicki as our featured artist for our inaugural festival May 11th-13th at Bird's Surf Shed in beautiful San Diego, California. I realize I knew Joe's artwork before I knew him. I first saw the Dawn Patrol image a couple years back and I was floored. I figured I would to run into him sooner or later and the fact that I had to wait until Grain Surfboard's Re-Evolution last September seemed like a long time but it was well worth it. Kindred spirits we became quick friends. And then Joe starts popping up everywhere. After Maine, I see him cruising around the New York Surf Film Festival, creating amazing handplane art at Sacred Craft, designing the upcoming X-Games logo...everywhere. I figured before he gets too busy I would approach him about designing our logo based on San Diego's contribution to surf design. He agreed wholeheartedly and nailed it.
Thank you Joe.
