The 2013 edition of Art Crank Los Angeles went off a couple weeks back in Hollywood at Space 15 Twenty. I was excited to participate for the second year in a row along side some amazing artists and designers. Its always fun to flex some creative muscle while promoting the great pursuit of bicycle riding. Below are some image of my poster which is now available in my humble online shop! BUY ONE!

My good friend Justin spent a few months last year riding his bicycle across the United States of America. An admirable feat to say the least. He called one afternoon and said he was just 2 days away, which translated to nearly 100 miles of coastal road. I was very excited that he was going to pay me a visit on his “journey of a lifetime”, until I realized that Justin had decided my house would be his final destination and he would be spending an undetermined amount of time on my couch before hopping a train back east. It’s a good thing I like him. Naturally I had to entertain him and show him the sights since he was my guest of honor; and he haaaad just ridden his bicycle across the United States of America, to spend time with me?). Here is Justin in Seal Beach, California showing off his
muscles tanlines. Proof he had at least spent a lot of time wearing a skin-tight lycra cycling shirt and his favorite biking sandals.
Photos from a BiRtDdAy trip to Big Sur California last May…Shot on my Yashica and medium format Norita Graflex. Cell phone reception was pretty much non-existent and while some of us anticipated Instagram ‘likes’ in our dreams it was a magical experience out amongst the towering red woods, electric green plant-life and bondi blue waters. With no reservations we wandered up on the winding coast on a Friday morning of Memorial Day Weekend. After some camp-site drama, sold out signs and a hard time communicating between multiple cars with no cellphone reception we found an enormous campsite at Julia Pfeiffer State Park. Some highlights included intense winds at Pfeiffer State Beach, the lush & short hike up to Limekiln Falls, A skunk invasion of our flank steak which ended up making the worlds first Philadelphia inspired Big Sur Skunk Cheesesteak (I’m claiming it!) and campfire stories and multiple shoes falling victim to HOT HOT fires!
