Here’s one to check off the middle school bucket list: I got to design a skate deck! With science no less! I was approached by the guys at Cofactor Genomics to create one in what will be a series of Longboards they’re producing. Though brilliant scientists on the surface, these dudes have a long history with skating, and one of the founders was actually a pro before making the (huge) career jump. They left it very open ended for me and had nothing but great constructive feedback. click on the image below for a larger view.
The board is about 9×47″ (huge). I’ll post some photos when they get back from the printer. I’ll also have a few of these to distribute so let me know if you’d be interested in buying one!Read more →
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone for coming out and for buying posters! it was a great time and a lot of money was raised for Bikeworks. I still have a couple posters left over that i’m selling for $30 ($10 off the original price) so let me know if you would like one!Read more →
These are a couple of neighbors i pass on my bike most days and have long had the urge to draw. The real reason for this post, though, is that I’ll be participating once again in STL ArtCrank! I’m flattered to be one of 30 artists, designers and badasses to make limited edition bike-themed prints, all in support of another neighbor, Bikeworks. Last year it was a great show and a great party, and this year should be even better. from the FB page:
Friday, May 11 – 5:00pm – 11:00pm
Saturday, May 12 – 2:00pm – Midnight
Sunday, May 13 – 5:00pm – 9:00pm
ARTCRANK returns to St. Louis as part of the 2012 edition of the Missouri Professional Cycling Series — May 11-13. Once again, we’ll stage the world’s greatest bike poster show in the friendly confines of Atomic Cowboy.
We’re teaming up with Widmer Brothers Brewing and Atomic Cowboy to support St. Louis BicycleWORKS, an organization that gives kids the chance to earn a free bike while they learn about bike safety and maintenance through their Earn-a-Bike program, which has provided inner-city kids with more than 10,000 bikes.
Saturday, May 12 is race day in The Grove Neighborhood, and we’ll be offering free bike parking (and tasty snacks) thanks to Clif Bar. Plan to stick around that night for Street Sprints and Cruiser Drag Races on Manchester, as well as a special DJ set by Jeremy Powers (a.k.a. J POW), champion pro racer with Jelly Belly Pro Cycling.
