Beautiful Losers is a feature documentary film celebrating the independent and D.I.Y. spirit that unified a loose-knit group of American artists who emerged from the underground youth subcultures of skateboarding, graffiti, punk rock and hip-hop. This documentary tells the story of how a group of outsiders with little or no formal training and almost no conception or interest of the inner workings of the art world ended up having an incredible impact on the worlds of art, fashion, music, film and pop culture.
I was unaware of this documentary. I own the book and was lucky enough to view the show in Orange County when it was touring.
I want to see the whole film!
3rd Bass is one of my favorite Rap groups and this is one of their many dope videos. Brooklyn Queens would have to be in my top hip hop Summer jams list...such a feel good track. Peep Search's sheepskin coat, mock turtleneck and Timz. Mark my words, Select will be rocking that look this winter.

This drawing was done by Evan B. Harris, a Genuinely nice guy and a true workhorse. I was lucky enough to be in Art Prostitute's Regal Row show with Evan. For those that missed that show, it was amazing. Evan painted a huge insallation on the gallery's wall, that had to be a hard one for the A.P. guys to paint over. Upon his retun to Portland, Evan put in a good word to his people @ the Wurst gallery and got me in the Wurstminster Dog Show. Thanks Evan!

Back when Art Prostitute started, the crew took road trips when gathering imagery and interviews for the publication. When visiting Kozyndan, they failed to mention that they had a van load of people rolling along. This illustration explains it all so perfectly.
Here is a quick snapshot of Questlove from tonight's gig. The dopest thing that happened was, Quest just plugged his hard drive into my laptop and rocked...so there are bright ass The Party stickers in everyones photos. I will try to get some of those shots from our homie Orlando.

After scanning the Evan Hecox drawing, I got hyped up to start scanning more stuff from my sketchbook. This thing has made it's rounds and there are a lot of good images to come.
The polaroid was taken @ a Vans instore I did with Sieben a while back and the drawing was done during the Low Tech High Life show. Keep your eyes peeled for drawings from : Travis Millard, Dalek, Baseman, Kinsey, Ed Templeton and more.
Evan Hecox has been one of my favorite artists for a while now. I got in to his work through his numerous board graphics for chocolate skateboards and graphic design for record label chocolate ind. If you have not checked out Evan's show Urban Abstract @ The Public Trust, I suggest you do so. The opening was last Saturday night as well as the book release for his new book of collected work from 1994 - present.

I put these stencils up in front of Glen's old store Elements off of Jefferson about 7 years ago. The buildings have all been repainted but for some reason, these are still running. I remember driving out to the Cliff from Ft. Worth on a weekly basis to buy records and now I live in the O.C.
