Premier of Spirit of Akasha at the Sydney Opera House photos by Paul Whibley
04 ~ March 2014
These shots were taken by Paul Whibley, seated in what looks to be a pretty good spot in the concert hall of Opera House during the premier of Spirit of Akasha at the Sydney Festival in January. The Windy Hills are on stage playing the opening track to the film with Sydney Secondary College Children’s Choir.
Litmus Cover circa 1996
20 ~ July 2013
Seen here, Surfer Magazine Vol 2 No.1, I can honestly say we’d never seen this cover when we designed the cover of Litmus. It’s classic to see how similar it is to what we created. Even down to the stance of the surfer, Derek Hynd literally mimicking his wave position and posture. The footage of Derek riding a Skip Frye Fish was captured by Jon Frank at Jefferies Bay, I took this still from the footage and then dragged it over a photocopier to get the odd effect the black has. I then painted the image with white to highlight what i wanted to stand out. Mark Sutherland hand rendered the Litmus lettering, in a similar style to the title of his Dream animation that featured in the film.
Spirit of Akasha
09 ~ April 2012
Spirit of Akasha is a new film and soundtrack celebrating 40 years of Morning of The Earth that I’ve been working on with Albert Falzon and producer Chris Moss for the last few months. Have a look around the new website for information. It’s been a super fun and interesting project.

The Lost in the Ether book is at the printers & the film has been put to bed and is at the replicators. On target for early December release. Checking proofs of the book next week. Pre-order is avaiable in the shop for anyone interested. There’s only going to 1000 copies of the book/film made with 131 sold already. Time to have a surf! Dreamboard still from the film by Mick Waters.
My Own Personal Shaper - Garth Dickenson reflecting on his relationship with Michael Mackie
14 ~ October 2010
Garth: Peak moments he calls them, “I’m always looking for Peak moments,” he says. I think the other thing that’s unreal is; having a shaper that lives around the corner and he’s your mate and he sees you surf all the time. I think that’s a real privilege to have that kind of situation. Also he’s such a great surfer, he’s just a classic guy to hang out with.
