2016 Billfish Foundation Artist of the Year

Posted by Nick Mayer on

It is truly an honor to have been awarded 2016 Artist of the Year by the prestigious Billfish Foundation.  Earlier this winter TBF's Deborah Cummings and Beth Black approached me about creating a painting to commemorate The Billfish Foundation's 30th Anniversary on their February Billfish Magazine cover.  We played around with some ideas and sketches that revolved around the number 3 and eventually came up with a design we all liked.  The design is a spin off the The Billfish Foundation's logo and features 3 billfish: a Striped Marlin, a Blue Marlin, and a Sailfish.  I also hid 3 number 30s in the splash of water.  The painting was used for the cover of their magazine which just hit shelves this week (the silver text was printed in a very cool shiny silver foil) and is also being used to create a series of limited edition prints.  Members joining or renewing with TBF for $250 or more will receive a personally signed and numbered edition of the print Billfish Slam.  Each print presented to TBF Chairman's Club members will also include a hand-painted remarque of a Ballyhoo.  The Billfish Foundation is a fantastic organization "Dedicated to Today's Youth, Our Legacy is their Billfishing Future."  If you'd like to join The Billfish Foundation and receive one of these unique special edition prints please click here:  http://membership.billfish.org/
