It's taken me almost a year to work through these photos and polaroids … This might be because Iceland was so incredible I couldn't narrow it down to a few snaps, or maybe because I'm a terrible procrastinator.
Either way, here they are -- a week wasn't nearly enough to explore this amazing, out-of-this-world country. I definitely hope to make it back for a better look.
A few months back, I took off for a few quick days in Auckland with the other Volcom ambassadors and some lovely friends, including Seb Zanella from Desillusion mag, and his incredible wife Marie from Le Monde Est A Nous. We were managed to fit in a whole lot over the few days -- from a 'School of Cool' evening meeting lots of lovely people, to volcano cocktails and a bit of denim jacket painting.
My Auckland travel diaries are up on the Volcom blog here...
It's been a long time since I've shared what's in my sketchbook, so here's a huge collection of ideas, musings, work and play. And some photos of my dad in the seventies, which were used as a colour reference in the 'Out of this world' pages.
Also, last week I finished up my full-time job as a writer/associate editor/general communications human, and this week I started an intensive three-month graphic design course. Quite a strange and scary thing to do at this point, but I thought I'd get it out of the way so I don't wind up cranky and regretful later on.
