Paquin II (continued...)

I've been very lucky to be able to bash the new Paquin EP for the last few months, it's such a fun record and totally satisfies my true desire to only listen to 80's synth dream pop.

Here is the cover I painted for them. I used tonnes of water, a teeny brush and minimal Indian ink.

Here's my photograph incorporated into the awesome poster made by design wizard Lucinda McConnon.

And here is their super cool video, made by the super cool Ian Craig Young Brown.

To the mountain

 A few weekends ago, a large contingent of North Island folk, traveled from all corners to meet at this little ski hut, sitting on Mount Ruapehu. I was slightly dubious of this structure when we arrived on the Friday night.

It was pretty much a tent - leaky and co Friday night. It was pretty much a tent - leaky and cold, and felt like it would blow off the mountain. But once the wood burner was cranked and wine was in hand, everything was a-ok.

The fridge.

Last year, on our similar trip to Raitahi, everyone bar my dear friend Nicole and I went snowboarding. We must have made our time relaxing sound so blissful that half of the crew stayed behind and we went on a little mountain trek.

NB: Fashion ankle gumboots are terrible for snow walks.

Later on in the evening, the snowboarders and the relaxed posse came back together for a ski lodge party. I was hired for the second time outside of our home to be the DJ and we donned outfits inspired by the following music video...

As I was on the tunes, most of these pictures are taken by Alannah - wooo!
