Some Australian outback landscapes. Inland Australia is about as far away as you can get from the ocean but there are some nice connections between the two, such as the fragility, isolation (at times) and utter beauty of both environments.
This is an older painting I did for Luke Steadman. Its about 2.5 meters long, made out of ply and extremely heavy. Took a while to fix this sucker to the wall on which it now lives.
This is an old add I did for Ben Lucas at Six Ounce Boardstore at Bondi.
Ben has since moved his wares to 40 Bronte Rd Bondi Junction. Drop in to say gday and be prepared to see some timeless creations from some of the best foam mowers around.
Got busy with Brock and Jim last night to update one of the few bare Shorty HQ walls. The bearded knee paddler will now inspire us to surf more and well.......er, work less I guess.
Nose trimmer cut out of 18mm ply and hand painted. The big woolen jumper refers to those mad earlier skeg flexers who wore these and football jerseys in the place of wetsuits which were yet to be invented. They simply surfed until either hypothermia set in or the jumper, full of water, threatened to drag them under. They then came in on to the beach and stood by a raging beach bonfire that had been lit earlier to warm themselves up. Once dry they would do it all over again. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr
Got a jig saw a while back, and couldn't help finally cutting that timber up round the back of the shed.Way too much fun.
This ocean going vessel is the one to hunt those lines of corduroy swell fanning the coastline in steam chugging salt spraying style
