DOMinique - the MONOSKI artist

Every movement and revolutionary idea needs an artist to create its visual identity.

For the monoski-movement, the creator of all logos, posters etc... has the pseudonym “DOM”.
His passion for drawing led to a professional carrier in advertising and illustration. When he rediscovered the new monoskis with carving and twin tip he realized he had to create a new style for the monoski community, evolving from the old style neon and pink-overall posters, to a more elaborate and professional graphic profile, still with a lot of humour to reflect the monoski esprit.

Since Oliver Hurtin created the French Monoski Association 2001, DOMinique

Petter has created many logos, flyers, posters and T-shirts, all for free to support the monoski movement!

see more of his work: here

So if you see him at one of the many monoski-meetings in France and Sweden/Norway, remember to say Thank You!
If you want a nice poster for an event or for work, or an illustration, do not hesitate to contact him (he speaks english!)

MONO whiskey laphroaig

tomorrow it is friday ...whiskey day!
...and of course I drink my whiskey from my specially designed Esprit de Glisse Monoski whiskey cup
This is in fact an important life wisdom: associate and connect nice things with other nice things...
then when you drink whiskey you get a nice feeling of esprit de glisse and when skiing monoski you get a nice taste of laphroaig !!!!

Pavlo's dog my gentlemen!....pavlo's dog...
