I got a chance to go surfing yesterday. Larry Buchanan loaned me a wetsuit that is probably the most awesome, unemcumbersome wetsuit I have ever worn. It totally changed my view of winter surf. When I invest in a new wetsuit, it will have to be one like that. Anyway…it was fun.
Here’s a sketch of a painting I may still do sometime…it’s the pass when it’s going off.
One thing I’ve been adamant to do in my mind is aggressively reconstruct my image of Jesus. I want to completely reject (in my imagination) the blond haired, blue eyed icon we’ve grown up with. I want to see Jesus as a Jewish person in 1st century Palestine. So…whenever I get the chance to randomly scribble in my moleskine, I draw what my mind conjures up concerning The Hero.
A friend of mine has a site called Cardboard Monocle. It’s really an interesting read, and always has something inspiring going on. One such thing is the “Out of Order” project. I think it’s such a great idea. Our culture is a virtual juggernaut of consuming and producing waste, it’s fascinating to look at that waste put in the context of temporary dysfunction.

Well…I finally did it. I sat down and tried to organize the jumbled mess that is my web presence. It was no easy task, let me tell you. It took several machetes and I lost three guides along the way to quicksand. Anyway…Here I am. The old “Real Soul Surfing” site will no longer be valid…and I’m planning on moving my main website to this place. So far, I’m liking it better!
So…anyway…here’s a Photoshop sketch of an acrylic painting I did on my Christmas vacation:
