Several months back I was invited to be in a group show along with some old friends from Paul Frank. The show, “No Brow,” was held at GINAC Gallery in Downtown Santa Ana. Sometime after the show the owner of the gallery, Tony Crisp, asked if I would be interested in doing a live art piece for an event in Century City, California.

First I attended Roadhouse’s 30th birthday party and then “The Johnniest Nigga You Know” got married over the weekend. There are signs all around that rollerbladers are growing up, as if my own gray hairs and aching back weren’t making that clear enough.
Steven is a teenager (actually he just turned 20!) who has been helping me out at GOST over the Summer. We have a lot of the same interests, like science, skepticism and rollerblading, so it is fun having him around. I also never get tired of listening to him talk. He is a teenager (basically), so he HATES everything! Food, movies, video games, furries…there is never a shortage of things for Steven to bitch about.
Frankie Terranova of Central Florida Rolling sent in these photos from a local skatepark where they represented with the GOST ‘N Knives stencil. That’s Tim Deaton above with the GNK Jumbo cap doing a top acid.
And here’s Frankie (nice name!) in a party tank next to another GNK stencil.
Nice work guys! Thanks for representing!
A few years ago Randy’s girlfriend, Gabrielle, gave me a new Munny vinyl toy and asked if I would paint it for Randy’s birthday. Of course I said that I would. Nevermind the fact that Randy was a seminal figure in the history of rollerblading, Randy and I have had a long and close personal relationship and I was all too happy to paint something for a friend. So, I put the Munny in my closet where it sat for the next three years.
