So good, I want to blog it twice!

This is the best intro I've seen in a bodyboard/surfing movie in years... Super fresh work from the Waldron Bros, hats off to you! And couldn't been done for a nicer person, Winny ripping in life generally!

Get on it people, jam your pods and relish in a gift that keeps on giving!

Ah a little bit of nostalgia... I used to get these cards in gum packets when I was a kid. Back when the term 'politically correct' was buried somewhere under a pile of nude photos of Pauline Hanson. I'd forgotten about them until I needed some inspiration the other day & looked them up! There's heaps more on the web so go forth and relish in the disgustingly beautiful "Garbage Pail Kids'

Valley of the shadow of orange

And so it was the end of the world as we knew it.

Fire and brimstone, burning skies, orange haze....

what next?

Rifling through my beard of shame, I took a walk in the valley of the shadow of orange & took a look at myself.

Would I push the last of my world in a rickety trolley til do me part? Or would this bum rise above his fate to conquer all...

Pretty Girls Scary

I don't know about you but hell, I find girls scary enough! So why we painted them to look like soul destroying, baby eating ghouls I don't know! But it makes for interesting shots. Shot by Jack in the woods.

Last night the lads & I saw GZA from the Wu Tang Clan play at The Metro. Super fine show, he put on a staunch don't give a fuck performance! Wu Tang have just collaborated with ALIFE NYC to drop limited edition sneakers & a tee. Good luck getting your hands on these puppies. ;P

The Brawler team went on a location hunt the other day for an upcoming film project. We ended up at JACK's grand parents house. Full of old creepy rooms, dolls, prams, mirrors & Chanel No. 5. I'll upload my shots soon, in the meantime have a look at Jacks blog.

'Beached Az'

So I'm guessing you've seen or at least heard of the 'Beached Az' cartoon given that it got around 5 Million hits... Well a couple of mates of mine kicked it off as a bit of fun between paying gigs & hats off to them because ABC commissioned them to do a mini series of the little whale for TV.

Given the synergy of working with Whales, wink, wink I was stoked to work them up a logo for the series that you will see in this clip... Look forward to more witty whale tales ;P

Rocket Tree

When I was in primary school, I drew a big tree on a chalkboard to the best of my ability. The teacher walked past, looking at the picture upside down & said "Wow that's great Matt! That's an excellent rocket!" confused until I realised she'd mistook the puffy leaves on the tree for smoke when she saw it from her perspective .... I won a special award for that "Rocket" and have subsequently drawn my trees without leaves... ;Puerto

Slums & Bums

Went to a wild party on the weekend, themed like a slum complete with trolleys, cardboard box dance floor and bin fires... JACK nailed some amazing shots. Check them on his BLOG

We did the title shoot for the doco on the weekend in our mate Hayden's garage... First official Puerto Vs Kapow collaboration too! Had a big team helping out with the jam as we had a blast throwing paint, drinking with Dexter the parrot & general goodtimes... Jack "the man" Shanahan took these tasty snaps in between filming (Go to his site for more pics). We shot a full timelapse of the whole deal, so we should have that online real soon! The movie preview is on its way to LA as we speak, were looking for some funding to bring this thing to the people!
