When Scott and I lived in London, the Mambo Surf and Streetwear store used to be in Neal's Yard, Covent Garden. It was a huge source of inspiration to me, planting the seeds of illustration as a career that could be combined with my love of fashion. REG MOMBASSA the alter ego of Chris O'Doherty, a New Zealand born artist and musician, produced many irreverent designs for the brand. I had no idea at the time that he also painted these incredibly beautiful landscapes. It is very interesting what appealed to me as a fledgling artist versus my more mature (cough cough) taste. The light that he captures in his work is crazy pants! And I love the banality of the subject matter.
