Common Threads: the Rasta/Shigley Project

The Rasta/Shigley Project is a documentary film by Sanük Footwear, about the collaboration between professional free surfer and environmentalist, Dave Rastovich and San Diegan based artist, Neil Shigley. In August of 2009, Neil was commissioned to do a portrait of Dave using his “Invisible People” motif, which includes in no particular order, carving, painting, photography, drawing, and printing. This is the journey of a piece of art, from sketches on a pad to a signature in the corner, that also helps to shed light on Dave Rastovich’s environmental causes along with Neil Shigley’s helping the homeless endeavors. Find out more of Neil Shigley’s work on his website, and check out the Sanük R.A.S.T.A Project here. (photos below taken from Neil Shigley’s website gallery)
