Hella stuff. These last 2 weeks have been busy. I finished dotting 4 boards (3 of em being part of the Wu Tang series I'm workin' on), won a skateboard contest, made some music, and a whole bunch more so keep reading if your interested.
First of all, I hope 'er body had a fun and safe Halloween. Second of all, when I logged into facebook on the day of Halloween, instead of "What's on your mind" in the status box before you type in it, it read "What's your favorite Halloween memory?" Immediately I thought of last year's Halloween.
My boss Kristin hooked it up with the dopest costume for this company party that the YMCA was putting on. The whole "Skate Staff" at the Muk dressed up as characters from Alice In Wonderland. I was the lion, and I couldnt have been happier. There was something about being all furry and having a tail that really felt awesome to me. It felt....home. Hahaaaaanyways, I wore that shit for like 3 days in a row and filmed some skating at marginal way with my buddy paul. It went like this:
It's true. I had hella fun. This halloween however went a little something like this:
I had hella fun in this one too. Except at the end of the best trick contest, I realized that I was the only one competing that could drink legally. I know it no big deal, but still I really wish there were more people there that were my age haha. I kinda felt like a dick for swiping the prize, but I really needed a deck. I haven't heard back from Nomadic in weeks, I'm about to snap the deck I just got from SnoCon (i only get one a month), and I'm still way too broke to go out and buy one. I would of been deckless in seattle till I got paid next on the 5th, if it wasn't for this! I really didn't need to share all that but there ya go haha. Whatevs, I had a great time. Thanks Steve G, and everyone else that made it happen.
Hanyways, about two or three weeks ago I was kickin it with my buddy Sawyer and noticed a board on his wall that had the stencil of his production company on it. I told him it would real real dope to see that logo of the actual car with the letters cut out of it, instead of just the silhouette. Not in terms of changing the company logo permanently, but just as a nice piece of art for a wall. He said something along the lines of, "DUUUUUDDDEEE if you dotted a deck with that on it, I'll make a video for one of your songs!" I said heck yes and made this. Its actually the deck that I was skating in that best trick contest at BVSP! If you look carefully at the video, you can see this on my griptape:
Here's the actual logo:
I really like the way this one came out. Sawyer and the rest of Altrac Productions hasn't seen it yet but I bet they'll be hyped. In other boarddottin' news, I finished 3 more Wu members. First off, here's Ghostface.
And here's Inspectah Deck.
And here's M E T H O D MAN!!!!
And here's a collab piece that I did a few days ago on one of my buddy Paul's Concrete Coffee Cups that he makes.
This will be available soon at his etsy page here <- click that.
Let see here....what else....
Oh yea! Im filmin a "MUK Minute" with my buddy Jake Menne. It's gonna be siiiiiiiiick. Here's a photo that Spencer took when we were filmin of a frontside 360 stalefish. Suuuuuuuper fun!
I cant wait for that that to come out. I think it'll be released by next weekend latest. Speakin' of the Muk, at the semi-annual YMCA employee meeting, I got recognized for killin it in the workplace and received 2 pins and a piece of paper for it. I know it might not seem like much but it meant a lot to me.
And uhhhhhhh....That's about it in the Art and Skateboarding departments within the last 2 weeks. Thanks for checkin' in. Before I go, I got another song for yuh. I made this one last month, but it never got posted, so here it is. Enjoy.
