The Art of Table Tennis

I’m very excited to be a part of a project sparked by my very good friend Dan Shetron of Shetron Wood, The Art of Table Tennis. Dan and I have shared many heated ping-pong battles in the garage so it only made sense that he mix his passion for wood working and ping-pong.

A collaboration between Port / Quiet Life and Shetron Wood featuring over 30 artists in the unique medium. Each Shetron paddle is hand crafted from salvage wood using both traditional and modern methods, then handed off to the individual artists to apply their own artistic finishing method. The finished works of art paddles will be available at auction to benefit the Long Beach Rescue Mission. The gallery exhibition runs from Thursday July 13th through the first week of August.





Frames from Summertime

Captured on film, developed with chemicals, stored on hard drives, archived on the blog…these are frames from Summertime 2016. A trip to San Diego, on tour with BOYTOY, an Arizona weekend filled with skateboarding and football, and a couple snaps from Long Beach.
