I’m very proud to work with Anthony Masters and his family at Taylor Stitch for the Bob Lake Collection.  Today marks the first launch of Bob’s flannel-lined project jacket (something in-between a light-coat and a shirt) and an accompanying set of 13 ounce flannel-lined jeans. Support the handmade and those that have a passion for learning and creating quality products with quality people.

Mahalo guys for making this happen to one of the best skateboarders, on and off the board…

John Rattray for Modus

You’ve already heard of Australia’s Modus Bearings, but have you paid attention to their astonishing team roster including Grant Taylor, John Rattray, Colin Kennedy, Andrew Brophy, Luke Croker, Sammy Winter, Chewy Cannon, and a slough of other talented rip riders? Along with the help of Adrian Syben and David Bush, they just released a short video spot with John Rattray. Them bearings roll longtime.



From The Archives: Eric Dressen

Occasionally I will have the opportunity to photograph someone that I consider a true icon. Not just a legend, but an individual whose presence has been etched so deep into the stone tablets of skate culture that they will unquestionably become a permanent fixture to the timeline of skateboarding. Eric Dressen is damned good.



Rammellzee: Letter Tracers & Barshaw Gangstarrs

Rammellzee wrote with Basquiat, mixed with Taketo Shimada, played with Buckethead, and inspired the formation of Cyprus Hill. I was completely awed by what the Rammellzee Estate and Suzanne Geiss put together for The RAMM:ELL:ZEE Room at MOCA Los Angeles. If you haven’t already, I suggest you experience it. That dude is radical. Thanks to some sort of generous concession from Banksy’s patrons, you can visit the exhibit without an entry fee on Mondays. Entrance into The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA will be FREE every Monday from 11a:00 to 5:00, June 13 through August 8, 2011.
