On December 2nd, I  curated an exhibition called “Mr Big Sur”. It was a charity event to raise money for Elemental Awareness, who help send underprivileged kids to Element YMCA Skate Camp in 2011.

Inspired by the Sequoia Trees at Skate Camp, I created a huge tree installation called “Mr Big Sur”. Element Advocates Brooke Reidt, Bunny, Chad Eaton, Chad Muska, Juliana Neufeld, Matt Irving, Mike Kershnar, Miya Ando, and Todd Francis kindly donated their creative talents to make Seed Pod ornaments that were hung from Mr Big Sur.

The Mr Big Sur Seed Pod ornaments were then sold to raise money for Elemental Awareness, and ultimately helping send underprivileged kids to Skate Camp.

Check out photos from the opening night here!

The mission of Elemental Awareness is to positively transform lives through their love of skateboarding. Programs are aimed to promote social awareness, environmental responsibility, and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle. For more information visit

I documented all the artist Seed Pods so that everyone would get the chance to see them. This is the series that Chad Eaton kindly made for the event. Check out more of his work here!




It’s been a crazy week in Mr Big Sur world… Nevertheless, everything is coming together for the show next week, so I thought it might be time for another sneak peek at some of the amazing creativity that the Element Advocates have been sending over for the  show.

This piece was created by Miya Ando, one of the sweetest women you will ever meet.

It closely resembles her dark and mythical metal works, and the inscription of a prayer repeated is so adorable that it’s going to make it very difficult to part with this one.

Check out Mr Big Sur event details here.
