Who's that dude?

I ran across Part Asian 100% Hapa in a L.A. bookstore in 2006. I snatched up a copy for my friend whose half Filipino-half white son had just turned a year old. All these years I was never sure who graced the cover of Kip Fulbeck's book. Sean Lennon wrote the foreward, so could it be him? If it was, it was the best damn photo Sean Lennon had ever taken.

A 2008 interview with Fulbeck explains that the cover model is not Lennon (seen above), but actually Fulbeck's surfing buddy named Shane. Mystery solved.
