Vardø, Norway - Walls KOMAFEST - thanks to Pøbel; 3rd image by Ian Cox
The building was formerly used to clean fish. Norway unfortunately still hunts whales. 24 hours daylight to paint.
In the winter they have 24 hours darkness, ... a very unique experience.

Driving from the east to the west of America to stop at Tucson.
By invitation of Eric Firestone of the Boneyard Project I got to paint this US Navy discarded plane that been used during the Korean war. Painting such a 'loaded' surface, gives some 'weight' during painting it. Thanks Marcy and Alex.

Between the south and the north rim of the Grand Canyon we entered at night near Monument Valley at the

On invitation of TheSk8Room (Bruxelles) I went to Cambodia to give some workshops with the Cambodian youth and the people from Skateistan, Combodia.
As Mexico, as Africa, this was a short trip, but I got the chance to paint on the tower of the school of PSE (Pour un sourire d'enfant), Phnom Penh.

Because we spend two days before in the jungle near by Vietnam I choose to paint a firefly. The firefly is because of the light pollution threatened in her existence and has a great importance for they produce with there lower body a yellow/green luminescent light, and communicate with their light flashes with each other. Researchers are observing them for a cancer resource and claiming they would could kill cancer cells.

During our two days stay in the forrest we visit Kep, a small town near by Vietnam, that once functioned as the French Riviera of Cambodia.
The left behind villas witnessing this former wealth. The villas became destroyed in the time of the Kmer Rouge and nowadays they are shelters for homeless people and for roaming animals.
