Jimi and Friends

In 1994 my airbrusher Dad, Peter St Pierre collaborated with surfer Rob Machado, shaper Al Merrick, photographer Mike Balzar and the ghost of Jimi Hendrix to create an image which became a cover of Surfing Magazine.
I was flipping through some back issues the other day and found this little postage stamp sized photo in another issue of Surfing where they identified my Dad Peter as “Paul”.
So, way to go “Paul”!


A customer wanted a replica of the famous Rob Machado camera board with Jimi Hendrix art. This image was a cover shot for Surfing Magazine and Gotcha used it as a poster. The Hendrix camera board project was a collaboration between photographer Mike Balzer, shaper Al Merrick, surfer Rob Machado, airbrusher Peter St Pierre and the Moonlight factory crew who had to make the camera mount synch with the camera and artwork.
