The Paint Shop’s last episode of the season has been complete! And boy, are we tired….
Had we known how much time, money, energy goes into making a tv show, we might have been a little less enthusiastic to jump in! But, being the maniacs we are, Drew and Brian ILL and myself are all workaholics, so we pulled it off.
This last episode was the most difficult, and our best as we really wanted to show man vs. nature, with Drew traveling down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon on a standup paddleboard, down gnarly rapids, for 16 DAYS!
Fred Swegles of the Orange County Register Newspaper wrote an article about the expedition, and you can read it here: SURFER’S GRAND CANYON RUN AN ADVENTURE LIKE NO OTHER.
We are pleased with the end result, as we incorporated the Grand Canyon trip with paintings that followed, and a second story where Drew designed a Reptiles in the City theme painting for a reptile store in town.
What’s next for The Paint Shop? Planning Season 2, which will require a lot more sponsorship dollars so we can step up the production value and maybe actually pay ourselves this next time around. Also, we have plans to improve upon the show greatly, which will require help from some strong partners and sponsors as well.
If you want to see a second season, you can help by sending links or posting our shows on your Facebook and Twitter and websites. The more views and feedback we get, the better chance we have of teaming up with some strong sponsors for Season 2.
Thanks for your support, we appreciate it! Please, watch Episode 6 below, and leave a comment!
