Ive spent a big portion of my life in the ocean, and when I go a long period of time without this, I question what Im doing .
I’ve been wearing them since I was a kid, not because they were cool, not because the cool punk rock kids wore them, not even really because the OG’s in the hood wear them, but it was because it was one of the shoe brands I could afford as a kid. I never got those black Nike Flights with the gold letters on the tongue I wanted (I had a picture ripped out of a magazine of them, in my wallet for a bit, I think they were around 90$, ha, yeah right, not then) Instead what happened was I got a love for Chuck Taylor’s with fat laces and I don’t plan on ever not wearing them. Although I do switch it up from time to time, theses days, Converse will always be my shoe.
I still get mine at 25$ at my indoor swap meet back home. At the same spot I get my favorite street tacos, fresh pina and watermelon juice, and packs of white tees.
The link is to the newer one of the two indoor swap meets I used to go to as a kid. They are a couple blocks away from each other. #showyourmath
So I have been waiting to do a little post on my art show at Max Fish last week , but wanted to gather some photos that were taken by friends that night.
I didn’t move to New York with plans of having an art show, I moved here to tattoo at “Wooster Street” aka NY INK, and try to grow as a person and a artist in search of new adventures and opportunities. Having said that Max Fish was the only place I would have had an art show, the place just felt right from the beginning, Max Fish just has good mojo, and its my understanding that its hard to get one there, so it all working out the way it did, I just have to say, it was meant to be. I am so humbled by the love and support all my new NYC family showed me, coming out and showing so much love and support. Not being from New York, only spending less then a year here, and having such a amazing turn out, it almost makes my eyes water, almost. Thank you all who came out I am honored by your support and friendships.
Here is some photos from friends that night, and a few new paintings.
PS : A special thanks to my family members Rob, Brian, and Diana for coming out just for the show, I love you guys. And Aly, I love you too brother.
…on to the next project
Every time Im fortunate to be involved with a big event or moment in life, I ask myself, “What is next” ? Im asking myself this now. #cantstopwontstop
Thanks to my friends at WellFed for this photo
During this trip to California I put a little tattoo on CM Punk in our friend Toby’s office up in Los Angeles. CM Punk was the last member of the LYD- Crew (our crew started in NYC last year after the 6 of us went to see “Into the Abyss” one night, I personally didnt love the movie, but I love the message we took from it ) to get his tat. The circle is now complete.
Our #LYD- Crew = Seth aka Goon, Myself, Toby, CM Punk, Jere, and Jake #PMA #OLOC
What is LYD <
