the book of te nao



This is the cover to a sketchbook that I call the Book of Te Nao. Te Nao translates to the wave, or god of the waves amongst some islands of the equatorial Pacific. I made this sketchbook a few years ago cutting down paper to size, and binding it with string. I traveled with this some while first starting out on this film project, and sketched some of my surfing experiences in it, as well as waves from my imagination.
