EAT MY SHORTS



I dedicate this piece to all the heads that have been harassed, assaulted, fined, or even arrested for participating in the act of skateboarding. Skateboarding is an amazing activity that requires much skill and practice. Why do security guards and police feel the need to harass and pick on the many young people that partake in the sport? I prefer this past time for young people over others, such as car theft and flash mobbing.

The original sketch of the skull was done by the homie Travis Bentley. He loves all the style and history of the Day of the Dead, as well as the rebellious spirt of Bart Simpson. He did a simple but sweet doodle of Bart as a sugar skull. I used it as an opportunity to collaborate on a piece with him, and drew over and into the doodle, effectively merging our talents, kind of like the fusion dance. Even though he liked the finished sketch, he loathed the vectored line work. I left the piece alone for awhile, until I found out 20th Century sued Skatebook over some sweet tribute to Bart Simpson's love of skateboarding by having him shred the most famous spots. The first thing i thought was "EAT MY SHORTS!"

Protect IP is retarded


PROTECT IP Act Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.
Sweet info graphic about how the corporate handlers want to own the internet.This bill is nothing more than a trick to shut down sites like Youtube and stop new sites from forming. It's like how China censors it's internet, but in the free world. How can our country be around the world killing in the name of democracy and they pull this weirdness?

KENK

New graphic novel that looks wild about a professional bike thief who racked from the Queen neighborhood in Toronto, which is a pretty nice spot. He's been called a thief, fucktard, hero, and even a prophet.

Batcap

HELL YEAH for the home team.

Off the Top Rope!



I was a huge wrestling fan growing up, and these 3 pieces of  wrestling gear are also from 3 of the best showmen ever, Rey Mysterio Jr, the attitude of the stable DeGeneration X, and the most insane of warriors, the Ultimate Warrior. The DX fitted is so crucial, it brings me back to 5th grade instantly. The neon green logo with the drips has my eyes glued. Gimme that.
