Russell Crotty

Russell Crotty grew up surfing the frigid waters off Northern California and started sketching out his dream lines on the drawing paper his dad brought home. Some forty years later he’s still obsessively drawing waves; his sparse strokes bypassing the typical florid hues and slicing straight into the energy arcs that hit the gut of every surfer. This episode of InnerViews is about a man who cell by cell creates kinetic narratives that leap off the page and into our imaginations with nothing but a ballpoint pen.
