Active Corona‘s John Drinkard sent in some new footy, check it out!:
I was honored & really stoked to be a part of this photo show when my friend Mike Glory from Us Versus Them asked me to be in it. With some of the big name photographers and skateboarders such as (name dropping just to name a few:) Atiba Jefferson, Estevan Oriol, Keith Hufnagel, Haroshi, Amy Frederick, Graham Nystrom, Teebs, Will Nichols, John Cardiel, Rob G, Robbie Jeffers, Posdnuos, Skypage, & Rob-Jest…
I really couldn’t keep my cool on this one, this doesn’t happen everyday.
The photo show is running at New Image Art in West Hollywood until Nov. 1st, 2014. If you’re in the area, stop by the gallery to check it out!
We were dancing the night away with our friends at Ezekiel Clothing the other night at the Wayfarer (formerly the Detroit Bar) in Costa Mesa. These things happen every year as a thanks to Active employees & the homies from Ezekiel, and they reckon for a pretty darn good time. THANK YOU EZEKIEL!
“Part one of Vice’s 20 Years of Chocolate episodes. In the four-part series, Patrick O’Dell and Chocolate’s recent addition Jerry Hsu head to San Francisco and meet with Chico Brenes, Marc Johnson, Kenny Anderson, Ben Sanchez, Mike York, Daniel Castillo, Spike Jonze, and many more to tell the story of Chocolate skateboards.”
“Building upon an ongoing project, Disposable: A Photo is a tribute to a period in time when people shuffled through and held photos in their hands. This exhibition shares it’s allegiance to 90’s era values of resourcefulness and thrift and serves as an homage to the disposable camera and the 1 hour photo processing experience. Cheap / easy with a fast food type quality, speedy prints document the destruction. The 1 hour photo exhibit is also a subtle nod to a generation that preceded this shift in photography’s direction. Calling upon those who have had their hand in this process of picture taking and photo collecting and recall curiosity being key in it’s experience.”
Here is the Video & Photo recap from the stops at Active San Diego (mission valley), Active Escondido, & Active Temecula. Hope everybody had a blast shoving donuts down their windpipes, chugging down gallons of milk, playing s.k.a.t.e. with the Fallen team, & watching Road Less Traveled on the big screen. Big thanks to everyone who came out to support, also special thanks to Brian Hansen, Jon Dickson, Tommy Sandoval, Dane Burman, Tony Cervantes, & Jamie Thomas!

After Transworld’s Outliers premier, we walked down over to the infamous BLACK bar for Brixton‘s Holiday 14′ Launch Party / unofficial Outliers afterparty. There were calls on the place being so packed & small, nearly doubtful of getting inside. And I didn’t RSVP… It was really a play by ear moment but thought: “eh, why not?!”
