LA Trip: 02/17 - 02/18
With the rain consistently pouring down and the wind picking-up here in San Francisco, Isaac and I weren’t sure about the drive down to LA this week. We decided it was worth the risk even with the grapevine being closed the day before on the I-5 due to ice and snow. We pleasantly found the drive to be relaxing and got into LA without any problems.
Majority of the car-load were all of the decks from Todd Francis’ personal collection that was installed for the 3131 solo show he had last September. Sitting on the top of the box is the original Anti-Hero eagle artwork packed for safe delivery.

Isaac setup a quick photo shoot in their hallway.
I walked into the Stereo warehouse and found the Big Red up against the stock-shelves.
Geoff and myself at his Champion Studio going over the advanced copy of the latest Solitary Arts line sheet.

Hanging on Kingman’s wall was the Geoff McFetridge x Juice deck.
Isaac and Coleman, shoe-less.

A few blocks from the Gallery Space is the Nike Cinema at The Montalbán. Geoff did the installation over the entire building.
Yeah, this is MEGA!
Found 1 of 2 skateboarders.
The other skater in the mix.
We had coffee and rice crispies, dusted with chocolate and cinnamon before heading home.
Isaac had one… I had two.
Thanks to everyone for their hospitality!
