172/365: Monterey


So you might have noticed that the blog took a two-week hiatus. To be honest, the blog was neglected to make time to work on some personal business cards and getting rid of the designs that I was satisfied with a few weeks ago and putting in more time to design. Other than that, for the next week, blog posts will consist of photos from a family road trip, which hopefully provides some inspiration and fresh air. Seattle is goal, but Monterey and Portland are planned stops. So after about 7-8 hours passed out in the car, the family and I arrive in Monterey to stay with some family friends. We know nothing about Monterey. I’ve only been to places in the Bay that Bart and Muni can take me. It was nice catching up with our host and seeing another old family friend who just started his military career, so big ups to him. Pictured above is their version of Fisherman’s Wharf, which was pretty nice and contained a lot less tourists than San Francisco. Other than taking pictures in front of the water, eating, and talking, not much was done, but this is only the first stop of a week-long road trip.

151/365: Del Mar Fair


Every year, the Del Mar Fair brings great joy to thousands of people a day for about a month in southern California. It’s deep fried food galore, deep fried kool aid, tang, butter stick, and practically anything else you can think of. There are games, rides, and vendors, too. I’m not one to ride rides, but I’m totally content enjoying good company, taking photos, and eating out at the fair. Come through and spend a day at the fair, it’s at the Del Mar Fairgrounds until July 4th. More…

Was really tempted to sleep in after last night, but work awaited me. Had to shoot a couple of photos for a friend of mine. Don’t know if he wants those released, but they turned out dope. We shot the photos in Dolores park, swung by Blackscale, and kicked it for a bit. Then headed out to meet up with Ontask and hit the All Gone book release at UNDEFEATED. Those tees tho. More…

40/365: Heartless World Showcase


Heartless World puts on showcases as a platform for artists to gain recognition, connect, and build, or in other words, “Make fans and make friends.” It was an ill show, plenty of talent that’s guaranteed to catch some attention. Those in attendance include Mad Flows, Ant Bankx, J-Billion, A-1, Mike-Dash-E, Jay Ant, Show Banga, Ray Guevara & Justinkase, Armani Cooper, and C-Plus. The hard work definitely shows, best of luck to all that performed. More…

21/365


After two or so days of rain, the weather started to ease up. The sun finally came out, a perfect day just to roam the city. San Francisco is such a great place, filled with diversity. Japantown is definitely a favorite, I might be a little bias, seeing as how I’ve lived there before, and Haight. More…

13/365: On Melrose


Whenever I’m in LA, I always find myself on Fairfax. With the booming streetwear scene there, it’s only customary to go through there and stop by the likes of Diamond, The Hundreds, Hall of Fame, etc. Melrose seems to be just as interesting. A couple of murals decorate the walls along the street. A cool vinyl toy store is there, forgot it’s name, will make note of it next time. Brooklyn Projects is also on this street, which was cool with a little fountain set up and some brands I don’t see carried often, like SSUR. More…
