I am really excited to show a series of images I have been working on this year that revolve around one of the most important elements in my life, the ocean. The collection consists of 15 images that help illuminate the many different moods and characteristics of the ocean. If you are in the bay area this weekend, come out and have a look.
Right now I am in the middle of setting up my new office. Iit is inundated with books and a bunch of my dads old records, with my desk tucked away in the corner. Looking to have it done by the end of the week, with art hung on the walls and all. Fingers crossed to that one…
My body is aching and sunburned. My lips peeling, nose too. The lower ribs of my back hurt when I breath deeply. My feet are riddled with cuts and bruises. My eyes feel like hot boiling water was poured into them as they were forced open. My neck is like a stiff wooden board. I have rashes under my arms, on my neck, and behind my knees. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
It is finally summer. The traffic, the sun, the heat, the long flat spells dispersed between insanely fun right hand south swell point breaks, twin fins, sloshball, no car, waking up sweating, people in town, out of town, and the sandy sheets. Malibu, which I have called home for the last 17 or 18 years of my life, is a double edged sword of sorts for me, as well as others. Click for photos and some words that maybe will shine a little bit of light onto what I mean.
A couple days ago I shot Tim Ryan, a local surfboard shaper. I did this mock up that will be used soon for a t-shirt collaboration that I will post about later if and when it gets completed.
