I went to Australia from march until april to travel around, to enjoy surfing and to explore the country. When I was in Torquay I visted this awesome surf-museum. Part of the exhibition were letters from Maurice. He is a young guy who quit school so he could have a good surf everyday. The only problem was that he was 14 1/2 years young when he started his journey. Instead of using normal paper to write letters he chose to use surfboards.
I was thinking about what kinds of feelings he would have when he would tell his stories and I tried to reflect this with my illustrations. So I made one illustration for every letter.
