My Story

My name is Aaron Holley. I'm the artist and founder of Boxwood Board Designs. I've been snowboarding, painting and drawing most of my life. Boxwood Board Designs is a result of my desire to bring together my passion for snowboarding for the last 20 years and my 12 years professional experience of working as a senior concept artist and illustrator in the video-games industry, to create my own artwork as fine art prints and for the board sports.

While in the game industry as a senior concept artist/illustrator I worked on several projects. The projects I've worked on include Star Wars Commander, Episode, Strife, Hellfire, Immortalis, Heroes of Newerth, Superman, Ragnarok, and Mafia Watch. With such clients as Disney, Pocket Gems, Garena, Moonlighter Studios, Frostburn Studios, S2 Games, Concept Art House, Playdom, Aeria Games, DeNA, and EA Sports.

What I'm Creating?



NEW DAWN SERIES

New Dawn is a sequential art series. It begins with the APOCALYPSE of our world. From there, the GUARDIANS who are entrusted with protecting the different habitats all over Earth are assembled to release the TREES OF LIFE, which begin to AWAKEN so that life may THRIVE once again.

APOCALYPSE

APOCALYPSE, 
A world that millions of years ago Thrived and was teaming with life was in balance. Has now torn itself apart with chaos, fake news, death, and destruction. A dark gloomy land laden with the smell of death, dust, and ash. Very little now remains. The nuclear war has shaken the very foundations of the earth creating ripples so strong that years later have reached the Guardians awakening them to fulfill the coming.

GUARDIANS




GUARDIANS, Once created billions of years ago have risen from the dust and ash. Fulfilling the prophecy of protecting the different habitats all over world they now assemble to restore earth to it's future glory.

TREES OF LIFE



TREES OF LIFE, and the Guardians are two and the same. They are one. Each Guardian was entrusted with a Tree of Life to protect should it ever one day need to be released from it's ancient encasing and planted. Each Tree of Life contains with it all of it's corresponding habitats necessary elements; so, that it may Awaken and one day Thrive in it's new environment.

AWAKEN



AWAKEN, years after the Trees of Life were planted by the Guardians they have been able to take root and flourish in this new fertile land and have begun to give life. Soon they will be able to Thrive.

THRIVE



THRIVE, After years toil and sweat the Guardians work has finally begun to payoff. The prophecy fulfilled. A NEW DAWN has arrived, allowing life to Thrive once again. The Guardians take their leave for the long rest. Each taking with them a sapling in the event they ever are summoned again.

This project initially started in 2009. I was unsatisfied with the options available for the artwork on snowboards; so, I decided to start creating my own. Resulting in Boxwood Board Designs. My focus is to create beautiful hand crafted art for you to collect and for your ride if you do. Providing you with not only the highest quality materials when it comes to our vinyl wrap, but also our art prints as well. In addition to having work that will match your board you will have work you can hang on or apply to your walls.

What's BOARD BARK and WALL BARK?



In addition, to the Fine Art Prints I have available. I also sell the art in BOARD BARK is a laminated premium grade vinyl designed for your board. WALL BARK is a premium grade vinyl designed for your walls.

What You Make Possible?

Your continued support allows me the freedom to focus more on Boxwood Board Designs. Something I'd much rather be working on. The kind of art my fans want me to produce. Patreon is a way of allowing fans/patrons to fund this project directly. So that I can not only keep creating art, but travel to different shows and meet you in person.

I love creating art for the board sports industry, but doing this helps not only fund development costs, but travel expenses as well. Which in turn allows me to interact with my fans and the people who really enjoy my work at shows or where ever I may be. Being able to meet everyone who's genuinely digging what I'm creating is priceless to me. Everyone's reactions/facial expressions at the shows, it really means a lot. I never got that working for big companies. It's been very rewarding. Your support not only helps me to keep things running (from a financial aspect), but also to travel all over the country at different shows so that I can meet you in person.

What's to Come? 

If pledges continue to grow I'll be able to offer more rewards, expand into other products, and hire on more people to take care of some of the many other tasks that I currently handle. In turn, allowing me to produce more art that my fans love and to be able to bring on new artists as well. Moreover, it permits me to attend more shows all over the country and eventually the world.
