What happens when an illustrator and a wood lover cooperate to give a new life to wrecked pieces of wood of the beach?


"CRU Woods" are Wooden figurines -surfers and sailors, recreations of some of my illustrations.

CRU in Portuguese means raw, so we are just matching the different textures and natural colors of each wooden piece in order to preserve its individual history evidenced on its surfaces.

Only the front of the body panel is hand-painted with different patterns - stripes, dots, anchors, florals, to make it unique and exclusive. We are shaping boards and playing with the surfing positions to make it alive.

In order to keep it natural we only use bee wax and water based paint.

Hope you like it as much as we like to do it.
