Intro

My name is Aaron Holley. I'm the artist and founder of Boxwood Board Designs. Boxwood Board Designs is a result of my desire to bring together my passion for snowboarding over the last 20 years and my 12 years professional experience 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. Such as; Star Wars Commander, Episode, Strife, Hellfire, Immortalis, Heroes of Newerth, Suprman, Ragnarok, and Mafia Watch. With such clients as Disney Interactive, 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. It was teaming with life. This world that once was in balance has now ripped itself apart with chaos, fake news and media controlling the thoughts and minds of society, hate, death, and destruction. A dark gloomy land laden with the smell of corpses, dust, and ash. Very little now remains. World War III has shaken the very foundations of the earth creating ripples so strong they have reached the Guardians. Awakening them to fulfill the coming prophecy.

GUARDIANS

GUARDIANS, Once created billions of years ago the Guardians have risen and returned to Earth. Only to find it destroyed and in ruins. They assemble, to begin the long process of bringing back life on this planet once again. In turn, fulfilling the prophecy of protecting and restoring the different habitats all over world. The Guardians are entrusted with bringing order, life, and balance to Earth once again.

TREES OF LIFE

TREES OF LIFE, and the Guardians are one and the same. Each Guardian was created 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 all of the elements of life necessary for it to Thrive and bear fruit in it’s given habitat. Allowing it to stretch it’s roots deep in the freshly restored soil. They assist the Guardians with bringing order, life, and balance back to Earth.

AWAKEN

AWAKEN, Hundreds of 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. Life is starting to emerge and blossom from the Trees of Life. Soon they will be able to Thrive.

THRIVE

THRIVE,
After years of toil and sweat the Guardians and Trees of Life work has finally begun to payoff. The prophecy fulfilled. A NEW DAWN has arrived, allowing life to Thrive once more. 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 did not care for the options of artwork/graphics available on snowboards. I took my passion coupled with my years of expertise for painting and snowboarding and combined them. Resulting in Boxwood Board Designs. The focus is to create beautiful hand crafted art to collect for your home and for your ride, if you do. After working for several great companies such as Disney and many others I expect a lot from myself and what I'm giving to you. There's some reviews on my site and Facebook REVIEWS from satisfied guests, I've met at the shows.
