Surf, Sprout, and Virginia

When I first moved to New York I was really home sick for my life back in LA. Then, my kind friend, Rich Jacobs took me to the premiere of "Sprout," Thomas Campbell's new surf film. Not only was (and am) I a big fan of Thomas Campbell's artwork and photos, but it also introduced me to his filmmaking. It's a beautiful film, take the time to seek it out if you have the chance. Here's a video from VBS.TV about Thomas.



I don't know too much about surfing but I hope to by the end of this summer. Surf lessons are a-waitin'. Alex Knost is showcased as one of the surfers in "Sprout," and even though I don't know too much about surfing I love the way he moves on the board, something so fluid and at ease about it.


And speaking of Thomas Campbell, i'm super excited that I'm in a show with him in Virginia. The show is curated by Cynthia Connolly based on contemporary sewn art. There are a lot of amazing artists in this show. I'll be posting more about these artists before the show, in the meantime here's the link. Ellipse Arts Center
