It is now Dec. 18th and Bella has passed the 2 month mark. Wasn't shure if I was going to blog about her here, since we have another blog set up for the family. But I just really dig these pix!

Layla cruising Zuma.
How these guys find the speed to do the maneuvers they do is beyond me. Tanner getting a little vertical, while his bros find enough speed for some nice carving and spray's.
On a recent shoot for Vans, we had Patrick, Dane, and Tanner Gudauskas on the shoot. Did some stuff at a campsite with a bigfoot costume that might have been a wookie costume. Next morning asked the Bros. and Layla Hurst to paddle out, just to get some shots of them in the water with their boards with Scott S. in the Bigfoot costume. Didn't even think the waves looked rideable, I guess I was wrong cuz I saw some amazing shredding in some sorry ass surf. Patrick cruised down a little left to end it with some double rail grab rodeo flip thing on a 2 ft. wave, WTF. The Gudauskas Bros. are some of the coolest and friendliest dudes ever, as with Layla and her dad who made this shoot one of the funnest shoots I've done for Vans.

U.K. electronic music makers the Fuck Buttons rocked a cool set opening for Magwai.
Brazilian band CSS played a cool show at the Mayan in LA. I didn't know anything about this band when I saw them except that they had a song on an Apple commercial called "Music Is My Hot, Hot Sex". They put on a cool show and their singer Lovefoxxx is a great front person that is hard not to watch once she takes the stage.
A definite nugget of a band is Ponytail from Baltimore, Maryland. They recently played the Smell, I missed the show due to another job that I had to get to, but I bought the cd and couldn't stop listening to it over and over. They have a great sound that I can't quite describe as well as great personalities. I'll definitely be checking in on their music to see where they take their sound.
Well another season of Yo Gabba Gabba has come and gone. This season saw some really great guest stars, music groups, some new characters, and cool places created by the awesome art dept. and creators.
Brobee learned how to play the drums.
John Reis from legendary punk bands Rocket from the Crypt and Drive Like jehu is the Swami who introduces the bands. Show creators Scott Schultz and Christian Jacobs take a moment to help the swami cast a spell on the crew to make sure we all get the shot.
O's band Reeve Oliver showed up to teach the kids about making sandwiches.
Ray Barbee takes some direction from CJ on some Cool Tricks.
Ladytron played some cool songs and took some time to explore Brobee's land.
Paul Scheer takes a moment to take some pics of Jack McBrayer with Muno after filming their knock knock jokes.
Questlove laying down some seriously awesome beats with his band the Roots for the family episode.
Songwriting great Paul Williams takes a breather before filming his song Rainbow Connection. I felt like I was a kid again and could of listened to this song over and over all day long.
Jack Black filmed a whole episode in one day. Totally pro, he makes it very easy to create great pics.
Once again I had the pleasure of working with the awesome cast and crew this season. The last day of production was definitely a little sad, when you get a job like this you wish it would never end.
