Nanda Ormond, fills our pages with words & others with illustrations, is having his first solo exhibition this Friday!
Here’s what ‘Nundies’ had to say about his up coming show.
“In my most debut ever art show, Scenes From The Future, you will find concepts and artworks from my forthcoming (as yet untitled) graphic novel. If you like SURF NINJAS, POST APOCALYPTIC BARRELS, SCI FI SURF GANGZ, and CURSED WITCH CHICKS, or perhaps just QUITE INTELLIGENT CROWS, and FUTURISTIC WASTELANDS then my friend, you will be most pleased if you come to my show. Bear witness to the formulation of a new era in surf comics, where no ink is too splattery and no surf sub-culture goes unharmed. If you come dressed up in sci-fi surf themed costume you might even get something free ( like the memory of everyone laughing and pointing at you ).

In 1985 Rusty Preisendorfer started his own shaping line called Rusty using a large R with a dot as his logo. This was referred to simply as the ‘R Dot’. A symbol which did not take long to move onto apparel as the brand became more established and recognized in the world of surfing. Part one of the series goes back to the beginning, where it all started, 1985. Rusty narrates the creative process behind the iconic R Dot symbol, how he started shaping boards and the fear of branching out on his own.
Kick back and take a trip with Salsa around Indonesia.
I had a couple of surfs at my favorite reef/point yesterday, it was fun. If anyone watching this was in Raglan yesterday and is thinking “Hey, I didn’t see any waves like that yesterday”, well you should’ve stayed out, it got better. Honestly, this was yesterday. Seriously. – Luke Cederman
