I love Japan!

I found video this morning of a project going on in Japan. They’re creating 1:1 scale sized statues of popular robot anime characters. From the information I could gather, they created Gundam first, and are about to complete Gigantor.

UntitledI just received my copy of the 2010 Waterman’s Ball Calendar put out by SIMA (Surf Industry Manufacturers Association) Environmental Fund. I was fortunate to have one of my pieces of art published in it this year. This calendar is given out at the Waterman’s Ball every year to the head honchos of the surf industry.

I like to watch Belinda Baggs surf. She has a lot of finesse. This is a short movie by Patagonia well worth checking out.
