BOXWOOD BOARD DESIGNS
History and Inspiration
BOXWOOD BOARD DESIGNS was founded in April of 2018 by Aaron Holley. It is a result of his desire to bring together his 12 years professional experience of working as a senior concept artist and illustrator in the video-games industry and 20 years passion for snowboarding to create beautiful hand crafted artwork for you to collect in your home, vinyl wraps for board sports,and vinyl wraps for your tech devices. Providing you with not only the highest quality materials when it comes to our vinyl, but also our art prints as well. Everything is made in the USA.
In addition, to the Fine Art Prints there is BOARD, TECH, AND WALL BARK. All Bark products are professional grade vinyl and laminated vinyl prints. Board sports can be really expensive. It’s an investment you make for a fun / enjoyable ride for many years not to mention some of the gear and accessories. Many people protect their cell phones with screen covers and car paint with automotive vinyl. With board BARK you can protect your investment, plus have the opportunity to change the graphics on it, be able to give it a fresh look and save yourself the time and money of having to look for and buy a new board. For more info on our BARK products visit our TECH page.
All vinyl printing and art prints are done in house to ensure you're receiving a quality product that meets the highest standards. We have a strong commitment to our environment and our local economy. When you buy from Boxwood Board Designs you’re supporting not only our small business but other small businesses, Thank you and please wrap responsibly.

New Dawn is a sequential art series project by artist Aaron Holley. 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, A world that millions of years ago Thrived and was teaming with life was in balance. Has now torn itself apart with chaos, fake news, death, and destruction. A dark gloomy land laden with the smell of death, dust, and ash. Very little now remains. The nuclear war has shaken the very foundations of the earth creating ripples so strong that years later have reached the Guardians awakening them to fulfill the coming.
GUARDIANS, Once created billions of years ago have risen from the dust and ash. Fulfilling the prophecy of protecting the different habitats all over world they now assemble to restore earth to it's future glory.
TREES OF LIFE, and the Guardians are two and the same. They are one. Each Guardian was entrusted 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 with it all of it's corresponding habitats necessary elements; so, that it may Awaken and one day Thrive in it's new environment.
AWAKEN, 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 and have begun to give life. Soon they will be able to Thrive.
THRIVE, After years toil and sweat the Guardians work has finally begun to payoff. The prophecy fulfilled. A NEW DAWN has arrived, allowing life to Thrive once again. The Guardians take their leave for the long rest. Each taking with them a sapling in the event they ever are summoned again.
