The proofs for Single: Studies of Movement from the Stephanie Gilmore, Spirit of Akasha Sessions came in yesterday. They look beautiful. It’s exciting to be working on a book again, looking at proofs and checking over what will be the final move before printing is always fun and a little nerve wrecking. Calling the art director Jim Newitt from Australia, who is actually English but lives in Santa Cruz, California. Jim is great to work with, helpful and considered, he has art directed my last two books and recently worked with John Witzig on his next publication which is incredible. This is what proofs looks like, they are upside down and back the front with pages all over the place. But it make sense to printers.

Just received this 400 page Captain Goodvibes book in the mail. It’s simply incredible, that’s all I can say. Here’s the blurb on it and it’s available here.
My Life As A Pork Chop. 1973-1981
Tony Edwards, Edited by Sean Doherty
Captain Goodvibes, the thinking man’s f_ckwit, a lovable abomination, a cartoon pig who became a cult hero to a generation of Australian surfers. Valiantly battling the three-headed Hydra of sobriety, employment and authority, the Pig of Steel took bad taste, substance abuse and pointless revolution out of the gutter and onto the beach, souring young lives and stealing the promise of a bright future from the tiny hands. But The Captain’s story cannot be told without telling the story of his creator, Tony Edwards; an artist, family man, a man of refined sensibilities… and a man who had this horrific creature living inside him.
My Life as a Pork Chop is 400 pages of the very best and very worst of Captain Goodvibes.
10 ~ December 2010
Jane & Jeremy got in touch some time back and asked if they could use some polaroids they took from Litmus in a project the were working on. I had no idea what they were doing, but said yes. Sea Journeys - a hand sewn book they made with the polaroids turned up this week. It’s is incredible beautiful. They make their books in editions. In the first edition of Sea Journeys there are 60 copies. Click here to what they do. It’s beautiful stuff.
Proofs Are In
22 ~ November 2010
Proofs arrived for the Lost in the Ether book this morning. Kind of old school, but also kind of fun and exciting checking proofs and getting them ready for printing. Arena Printing - the printing company I’m working with is based down in Victoria. It’s a very small print house, devoted to quality and sustainability. You can check it out here if anyone is interested in the process and their ethics.
I’ll keep you posted on further developments. Still aiming for early December release of the new film and book.
The Fart Sucker
03 ~ October 2010
Excerpt from “Lost in The Ether” Dave Parmenter and Wayne Lynch interview.
Andrew: It’s pretty challenging.
Wayne: It’s incredibly challenging.
Dave: Every time it’s an adventure. You just want to get it to that meditative process. That’s why I don’t do shaping appointments, because the guy is just not going to get a better board. If I have to narrate it, be a tour guide and a be stand up comedian all at once while I’m shaping and talking through a mask so I end up with a sore throat, then I’m not in the board, I’m dealing with all this and then the guy stands in my light and I go, “Fuck it, I don’t even care anymore.” If the guy is gonna stand in my light then he’s going to get this rail.
Wayne: You should just fart a lot.
Dave: I used to do that to Rusty.
Andrew: What? Stand in his light?
Dave: No, pass gas. When you pass gas in a shaping room it’s really bad, but the mask makes it worse.
Wayne: Especially wearing that thing I wear because it sucks it up and delivers to you - no one else. (laughing)
Dave: It just clarifies it.
