Mark Oblow in Sao Paulo, Brazil @markoblow

We had the privilege and honor of meeting some of the best people during the month of September while in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Cesar Rodrigues and Ale Jordao curated and hosted The WallRide Project (September 7, 2014) for Mark Oblow along with Stance's support for an event at Cartel 011 (September 9, 2014).  

Below is just a small sample of images from Mark Oblow's Instagram account of our varied and consistently awesome time spent with our new family.  

Obrigado to everyone who made this trip the most memorable one, ever...

"Look Away" Book Launch at DLXSF

Brian Martinez and I took some phone photos of the installation we worked on for Todd Francis' final Summer book launch event at DLX in San Francisco on July 17, 2014. Many thanks to Winston Tseng (WINS Publishing) for his help along with Matt D., Tory, Brandon, and Quiante (DLX Shop). Also, mahalo's to Buddah, Alissa and Michelle for their help with taking the show down and to everyone who made it out to this great event.

"Look Away: The Art of Todd Francis" is available at finer shops everywhere and directly from WINS Publishing.

Signed Editions available at Equal Dist. exclusively.

Simultaneously happening...outside with Todd's mural and inside with the installation.

Kickstarter for Andy Jenkins' Book, "Chirp"

Andy Jenkins, known for his classic comic, Wrench Pilot (under the moniker of Mel Bend) has a Kickstarter project going on until August 8, 2014.

Andy is collecting his illustrations from The Skateboard Mag over the past 7 years from his column, "Chirping In." The plan is to create a high-quality, perfect bound, full-color book once the goal of $12,000 is met.  The book will be 7" x 7", approximately 88 pages in edition of 500. You can contribute towards Andy's project, ensuring that our skateboard history continues to be captured through quality projects such as, "Chirp." You'll be stoked once he sends one your way this coming November when the books are scheduled to be completed.  

Check out Andy's original artwork, prints, and more at the Bend Store

Victor "Crane" - Tuck-Knee For Minimal Skateboards

Victor and I have traveled a bit (actually every time I've ever gone road-trippin'/camping from the bay to the pacific northwest).  I'm a huge fan of the Crane (as we affectionally call him) and this tuck-knee at the deep-end of the J-Bowl in Scotts Valley is why Minimal Skateboards has him shown boldly on their website.  All Style!

Go and visit their site and pick-up a fine crafted deck made for bowls and backyard pools (with wheel-wells)
