Illustrations by Wayne Pate

So my friends and family know that I did a really stupid thing last year. In an effort to get my son to sleep in his own bed I offered to build him a yellow submarine to sleep in.  At the time, I had the greatest vision of the song "yellow submarine" by the Beatles playing while my little boy fell fast asleep inside his yellow sea vessel. But now I get the "where is my submarine" eye roll from a 5 year old. I am gonna build that damn bed if it kills me. I will have you all know that I am very good with power tools so it isn't as crazy as it sounds.  The seagull illustration above, by Wayne Pate, will hang next to the sweet aquatic masterpiece. IT WILL. IT WILL. IT WILL. (said with a childish shoe stomp)  Link 


  1. ah yes, those promises! you can do it, you can do it.

  2. Sounfds siick!!! I once built my kids a bed hanging from the ceiling.

  3. Thanks guys for the support. :) A bed hanging from the ceiling? A submarine would be cool hanging from the ceiling. I jumped over to Mr. McMillan's after feeling inspired to see he is a multi talented surf/art wizard. I will stick to a submarine on the floor for now and admire James' ability to make things hang from ceilings. :) Have a great day guys. Hope you catch some sun and waves. Not much here in San Diego.

  4. Of course you will and it will be amazing and belong in a magazine....

  5. I believe in dreaming big bold dreams and I'm sure you're going to end up with a marvelous yellow submarine!
    Take it in slow little steps and you'll be there without even noticing.

    P.S. Love Waine's art. Exactly my style. Thanks for the intro!

  6. Hmm, between you and Andy I don't see any impossibilities. Love Wayne Pate's art!! I've seen his artwork I believe for Jack Spade, but never knew who he was. Love it:)
