P1 Brand for Benny Gold

1 Comment
Long time friend, fellow skateboarder and SCAD alum, Benny Gold, recently invited me to do a Guest Artist Series graphic. We've turned the design into a few graphic tees and a cruiser deck (crafted by the legendary Paul Schmitt/PS Stix Factory) and it's available now at BennyGold.com! You can also see the product in person at their new store in San Francisco at 968 Valencia Street.

Thanks Benny!

Watch this amazing Citroen car commercial from 1985 featuring the iconic Grace Jones. Pretty spectacular considering that CGI was still a thing of the future...directed by Jean-Paul Goude.

Roger Steffens for HUF/The Family Acid Collaboration

0 Comments

Dig this new project from the Los Angeles-based HUF label. The Family Acid Collaboration exposes the work of photographer Roger Steffens to a whole new audience, and hopefully, to his new book, The Family Acid, as well. Great images including a snapshot of the legendary Peter Tosh, a yellow Caddy, American soldies in Vietnam and gas station signage are available on tees here

It's always rad to see brands like HUF take a chance on more obscure collaboration like the one above.

6th Street Bridge Farewell via eGarage

1 Comment

The folks at eGarage produced this nice short on the 6th Street Bridge party that Magnus Walker assembled a few weeks ago...plenty to see. 

The 6th Street bridge in Los Angeles has been a landmark of the city since it's construction in 1932. Featured in scores of movies, commercials, and television shows throughout the decades, the bridge was also a favored road and proving ground for our friend Magnus Walker. With days left before it was closed for good, the time was right to host a farewell gathering of L.A's car enthusiasts.
