Here are a few shots of my buddy Mitch I stole from The Modern Collective blog from their recent adventures to Reunion Island. Here Mitch is riding one of the boards I painted up for him. For more about the trip/film go check out Moderncollective.tv, movie will no doubt be nothing short of amazing.
So the other night (I used to skate once 5) was Rad Town. The show was killer and so were the bands. Heard nothing but praise about the show and fortunately for me I sold my deck, which will help pay off my parking fine that I received around the corner the following morning. Thanks to Matt and crew from the Outpost for once again putting on a rad night!
When I was in America last year I was visiting one of my dads best mates from California who I happened to have got my middle name from. After sitting down to an epic buffet of home cooked food Joel busted out an old slide projector and showed us a bunch of photos of him and my dad from the 70's when Joel came out to Australia. Seems like nothings changed from now and then, just a few more kooks in the water and on the roads.
This is a short film I had playing at my solo show "Yes! Yes! Yes! Thankyou but no!" in Brisbane at NineLives Gallery in March 2009. The film is a shot of me surfing a surfboard that my buddy Sam Smith shaped and I painted. Over the top of the clip is a bunch of photo sequences of the making of the board from shaping to glassing to painting.
Just handed over a couple or freshly painted sleds to a buddy Mitch Coleburn (getting creepy in the bottom shot). Mitch is 1 of 6 surfers who are part of a new film project called Modern Collective directed my buddy Kai Neville. Was at Kai's studio the other day and got to see an edit from part of the film. Not talking it up but it is looking nothing short of phenomenal. I would definitely recommend you leave a spot on your dvd shelf for this film which is due out late this year. While your on the net make sure you check out their blog to keep up on the latest of their adventures www.moderncollective.tv.
