when a few of ones influences are Mondrian / Malevich. then i suppose the outcome is definitely scripted. departing to the obvious outcome is sketch 1 - sketch 2 will be far more wildetect 3 of 3 personalized. i really love the way the blue and red goes darker on the edges of ones vision.

paddling out muizenberg dressed up as a rooster fish yesterday - was pretty tough. firstly because im not as fit as i would like to be. secondly because 5 minutes into my paddle out to the back, i had an annoying asthma attack. and 3rdly because i looked like Liberace just as he stormed the stage. rooster fish dressing is not for the shy or feint of heart. besides scaring all the kids on the beach, i ended up scaring myself. one of my tentacles popped up next to me, forcing the stress induced asthma attack.
the footage isnt great - however the object of the scientific design experiment - was to see if the latest attachments work. a sort of metamorphosis from land animal to poisonous sea creature. an experiment in progress - i now need to improve on my fitness and surfing prowess.

thanks Brett of fluid productions for shooting this skateboard test drive vid. the wildetect brand has been pushing fringe muizenberg design for awhile now. wildetect design is marching to its own beat and very much on the outside of the current fray. the wildetect skateboard has been through a slow long process of refinement. the board is definitely not for riders under 16 yrs and needs to be ridden by experienced skaters.

"If one drives down JEFF MASEMOLA road in Khayelitsha and then drives along the N2 . Some people find it very hard to believe these 2 roads run parallel to each other, not more than a km apart in places. The electrical cable solutions and even the driving styles are so very different - its Africa informal mindsets running parallel to Africa formal mindsets. The 2 roads highlight to me this incredible reality. informal living and formal lifestyle are moving away from each other at an alarming rate - never really looking to converge ever in the future. The erxell concept -www.erxell.com hopes to get one mindset to at least notice the other, in a way that is mutually and symbiotically beneficial." QJD - 2013
