It’s been a while.

I have been absent, I know. What a bloody old mess.
Not sure where to start or what to say.
This is no way of treating you.
The Pinnacle of abandonment.
I do not expect you to still be here.

If you are… l e t  m e  k n o w.

Last Light

The Happiness Machine

I know it’s been quite on here the last few weeks but I haven’t really felt inspired to get in the water, until today. Tasty waves with good mates all day long… a winter’s day to remember. Johnny Abegg inside the happiness machine.

It’s cold.

But the anticipation of what may lie behind those trees keeps us going.

Waves, at last.

Offshore winds and clean waves have finally returned. I felt nervous this morning… it’s been that long. Main Beach lookout.

Shadow Box Frame

This beauty was ordered by a lady as an anniversary present for her husband to hang in his Byron based design studio. Makes extended desk time a lot more bearable when the surf is pumping. “Mind Surf” print in shadow box frame 1000x667mm.

One Session South

Last weekend, in anticipation of an overdue swell event, we spontaneously decided to leave the safety and somewhat known perimeters of the beaches we call home. Our destination greeted us with tropical and playful conditions. A morning of fun.

New series of Resin Art Blocks coming up.

Woohoo! More prints rolling off the Epson wonder machine for a new and upcoming series of Resin Blocks. Two themes of 4 images ea. called “Waves of Byron” and “Ocean Dream Time”. These will be one of a kind, fully hand selected and hand made. The process of making these is so exciting, I can’t wait to share it with you. Also big thanks to everyone who supported the last series of resin art, which completely sold out! It means a lot to me!

Resin Art Blocks

So stoked with how my resin blocks are turning out! The process is fun and perfecting them is an interesting journey, now that I have; they are for sale at Ho’okupu Surf in town. I’ll be hitting the workshop soon to produce some more, so when these first generation babies sell out there’ll be more behind them.

Domestic & overseas shipping can be arranged as well. For more info and orders please contact me here
