The Aussie Animal mural in Silverlake. Actor Ben Mendelsohn and novelist Emma Forrest commissioned us to paint a wall in their baby daughter’s bedroom in Los Angeles. As Ben hails from Australia we all decided to focus the mural on Aussie animals so their daughter could learn about the unique Aussie wildlife as she grew up. Kozy and I decided to make a space in the middle of the mural for her to draw on, and thus painted it with chalkboard paint. It was lovely to spend some time coming to their happy home and to make an artwork for one of the SWEETEST children we have ever met. A very nice experience all around!
Its always a great day when you get to encounter friendly dolphins in the ocean. On several days while on the Big Island of Hawaii, we spent several hours swimming with them with our friend Brian lam off the Kona Coast (as well as at Two Steps, a popular snorkeling spot south of Kona). Totally great we to exercise and feel ALIVE. Always seek MAGIC, folks.
