Lamps, shoes, paint, nutcracker, tool box, drinks, paint.......etc etc
Moved out of my studio recently. As I stopped halfway through the pack up I experienced a visual montage in my brain of my time spent there and came to the conclusion that I will miss her (the studio was a girl). Everyday this week I'll post a photo from the pack up for your enjoyment or disappointment.
People like Vaughan make me feel like a goldfish, even a real tool at times. Why you ask? Because Vaughan is one of 'those people' who you could be introduced to at 2am in a bar 100x Jager Bombs down and 6-months later you could bump into him in a street halfway across the world and he'll still remember your name and what you talked about ''that night''. His brother Ron is the same so it must be something in their blood. To rub his 'remembering names/faces talent' in your wounds check his blog here.
....told me that it was flying around a shaping bay on the weekend and saw my freshly shaped board waiting to be glassed. My first wave on a NPJ Quartet blew my mind...literally...it nearly exploded sending my brain into a kazillion little pieces for the dolphins snack on like peanut butter and jam on toast. From that day forward I knew I needed one. Alas me being all Mike Myers in Wayne's World (see above) "She will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine!"
Vaughan has a blog where he draws people and he recently drew yours truly. Vaughan admitted it himself when saying I "look like the captain of an Italian football team". To be honest the first time I saw it I instantly thought of the d-bag from the worst movie ever Skyline (I recommend never ever ever ever watching this, my friends hired it from the movie store and by golly gosh they sure secured that it was the last time they ever choose a movie) meets the Lion from The Wizard of Oz. Either way I'm chuffed; my hair looks clean, my mo looks more manly that it actually is and I have the tan the colour of a Caramello Koala chewed up and spat out. Stay tuned for my portrait of Vaughan tomorrow.
I know, once again this blog has been severely neglected of late but I promise I'll update it more. PROMISE! Anyhow back to the point behind this post. Was extremely lucky enough to be invited to be part of Billabongs Design For Humanity show this Wednesday in Hollywood. This is my first international show so I'm stoked to be part of it. Not sure if tickets are still available but follow the link above to get more on the show.
