HMS and curious chooks at Sunhouse

Sun House was a great surfboard and hardware shop/cafe/creative space, what made the experience quite unique was a chook from down the road inviting itself in and pecking about in and around the surfboards. The coffee was good too!

there were some great historic boards, colorful glass jobs and all sorts. Including a retrospective comic book on Captain Good Vibes, My life as a Pork Chop by Tony Edwards. This Cook was reading out the dimensions of the board I liked.

As I was passing through Brisbane there was an opportunity to have a show at Witch Meat, a small Artist Run Space in the center of a share house in the West End. The premise of the show was to do an everything out of the van. We built a make shift slippery dip from the side door of the van into the front yard. I unloaded various objects onto the slide, it made a pile on the front lawn, I invited people to take them inside to the gallery.

staying in Stella Johnson’s paradise. Well one night i was meant to be staying here in the 13th floor at Johnos apartment. We went out for dinner and followed with a few drinks. Johno headed home and I stayed out a bit longer only to realize, i had no cash left, flat phone and had mis placed my van key. I walked the ten km, back and did not want to wake up the apartment. I had no key to my van. Near my van found a phone box a some spare change. I the called RAQV and they let me into my van in the carpark of the fancy apartments for a good rest. The next day we went out to South Stradbroke Island on Johnos jet ski and scored some fun Waves.

Sunshine Coast: first surf in nearly three months, I didn’t care that it was a one foot shore Break, I was pumped. I did this painting, surfed for nearly to long and nearly missed my flight from Brisbane back to Melbourne for a next wave intensive.
