The joy of painting brains and maggots

Russell Ord is a big-wave surf photographer from Margaret River. He’s known for charging monstrous waves with camera in hand and gets in deeper than all the other lightweights to capture awesome images like this:

I met up with Russell a few weeks ago and he offered me his surf helmet for a good dose of custom painting. I had a blast painting it, and got to paint my first brain and maggots combo… which was a strangely satisfying and fun thing to do.

The helmet went from this:

To this:

Custom painted surf helmet with skull and brains

Big thanks for Matt Fieldes Photography for the awesome photos of the finished helmet.
