Deformer Ed's Latest.
 
Ed Templeton grew up in Orange County California, skateboarding since age 13, and helping to refine the future of the sport.He served a pioneering role in leading skateboarding into the creative and cultural influence it is today. The mid-'90's would turn Templeton into both a businessman and artist, and an unwitting archetype for a new renaissance man of street culture. He launched Toy Machine Bloodsucking Skateboard Company in 1993, and had his first solo exhibition in 1994 at the legendary Alleged Gallery ran by Aaron Rose. Templeton began experimenting with photography in 1995, once again finding himself on the vanguard of a new cutting edge: The mix of social documentary and personal expression, exemplified by precursors like Nan Goldin and Larry Clark, which would come to define a certain moment in the late 20th century. "I realized I was missing out on all this great subject matter that I was living around," says Templeton, whose skating career sent him across the world for contests and expos. He soon branched out from shooting the insular scene, and began turning his camera on the minutiae of his daily existence. "Every free moment, I'm walking around the streets shooting photos of life in general - including my personal life." Most notorious are the candid nude shots of his wife, Deanna, which Templeton regrettably notes receive and undue amount of attention. It's not titillation or exploitation though, but rather the natural end result of collapsing life and art, of making them into a singular entity. Relationships, travels, religion, portraits, street scenes - they're all just part of Ed's photographic record. Templeton's growing oeuvre of paintings and photographs were showcased in 2004's momentous "Beautiful Losers" group show. This seminal exposition, which also included works by Barry McGee, Ryan McGinley, Chris Johanson, Raymond Pettibon, and a slew of others, brought together a new creative vanguard whose visual lexicon left an immediate mark on the culture.

SEAN TULLY.

Sean Tully's a good bud of mine that I met during my stay in California. Ended up shacking up at his joint in Ventura and had a wild time.

He surfs super sick on all kinds of shred sleds.

photo. david pu'u

When he's not out on his log at Malibu or slashing Rincon, sure guess he'll have a glass of red in one hand and paint brush in the other.

Did I mention Seans a pretty sick artist too? Check his site out..

brings out more than the norm in most of his 
subjects, from shooting Kate Moss, Nerd,
Will Farrell, Jessica Alba and Barack Obarma
just to label a few, the real photographs he collects
are amazing! Have a look for His Hard Book
TERRYWORLD.

Gato Heroi // Hi Shredability

Tyler Mason from Vice TV ventured down to Costa Mesa to film an episode of Hi Shredability on Robin Kegal, the creator of Gato Heroi!  Robin seems like a bit of a wild prick, dabbling in a bit of everything.  He makes some real rad shred sleds, sick wetsuits and a little clothing.  If your remotely interested have a watch of the videos..




There are also heaps of other sick clips on Hi Shredability.. Go check out other episodes on Dan Malloy, Alex Knost, Thomas Campbell n' Dane Reynolds.

Kate Moss // Babe

"Miss does not give a FUCK Moss" had to
appear soon. Check her Biography out, hells
bed time story, dream of that shit all night long!
Ocean Journey // Pirate Steve's

Heading offshore for 2 hours is not the most inviting
trip I have been on! I really thought we were going on some
wild goose chase, some fisherman had spat out some story
to a friend of mine "Yeah There's Hell Waves Out There".
Lucky enough my girlfriends Dad owns a 50 foot Cat
so I gave him a dial to plan our adventure!
2 days later after loading 3 Jet Skis and seeking
out 6 Pro hell men to tow the hyped up sick wave we
were on the open ocean. We arrived to this slab of reef in
the middle of the ocean at about 7:00 am with this wave
feathering across the reef. Everyone looked really bummed,
one of the boys dunked one of the Ski's
off the back of the boat to go have a closer look.
As we watched him disappear away we
realized the feathering wave was a 10 foot below sea
level monster! The wave has never been surfed before
and i don't think it will be ridden ever again!

The Feathering Monster.

Pirate Steve.


Courtney & Kirby motoring out.

Kirby's first ride, heavy slashing!

CENTRAL AMERICA.

Arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica.. four gringos, that couldn't speak a word of Spanish and with no idea of what we were doing or where to go!

We decided to head to the Caribbean Coast. Heard stories of it being some kinda tropical paradise. We got there after a little struggle n' getting dusted by come dodge cab driver who's tire blew off half way through the trip, to find a place full of phony rustas and NO waves.. All the lads were so excited to surf and with no waves we got up to a little mischief. After nearly paying Micheal Scofield a visit we hot tailed it outta there in the back of some guys bedford van with his little ankle biting mutt and headed for the Pacific Coast.

Perfect waves and no phony rustas. The four of us made our way up from Panama to Mexico and had a wild time on the way.

Photos were taken by my mate, Mike De Tullio.

to hit the Movies. The song "Wake Up" by The Arcade Fire

Sin City.

Living in Sydney last year was grand, meeting new 
friends, seeing new locations and just doing different
things it is one of the best choices i've ever made!
Here are a few snaps from a pack of Polaroid film that 
I shot while I was there. 


Fixies there everywhere!

Red leather seats Manly Town.

No diving.
Os Gemeos.

Caught a glimpse of their work when I was strolling the streets of Sao Paulo, Brazil, a little while back.


Os Gemeos (the twins) have been doing their thing in Sao Paulo for years. They did some work on the back of Kinsella's. Go have a look, if it hasn't already been painted over.
Yeasayer.

Saw these guys last time they were out.. real rad!



Lead singers dance moves are sick and the bass guitarist has a filthy mane of hair.. Go catch them if you can, their all time.
Lovers' Land.

Attended the lovers' land show at Deus showroom the other
evening. Was pretty good. Some hell photos and sick short movies. Also enjoyed a couple of ales with whalebone and the gang.
