Tommy Guerrero made me sit there and endure a grilling in episode 13 of his “BS with TG” interview series. We discuss the start of Antihero, the origins of the eagle and pigeon logos, and I share my recipe for perfect lemon chicken in a jiffy. Watch Part 1 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsUMcL5qosg Watch Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQLEoCzN-Jo And no, I don’t deserve this honor, that’s something we can all agree upon. Thanks Tommy.
Out now is my newest pro set for Antihero. It’s called Overcrowding. Because yeah. Decks for Taylor, Gerwer, Hewitt and Daan, they’d look good on you. In skate shops now, go get you some.
The October issue of Penthouse is out today, and inside you’ll find this new Fun Page. Lots of other good stuff in this issue from Porous Walker, Leah McSweeny, Chris Nieratko, Sam Phillips and Dave Carnie, you really should grab yourself a copy for yourself.
This second Fun Page also appears in the new October issue, as well as lots of other equally important photos, columns, and illustrations. Get one and see for yourself.

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the last stop of the Worst of the Worst touring art retrospective at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles. The August 5th opening was a lot of fun, Shepard Fairey (the gallery’s founder) and Alfred Hawkins did an incredible job on the turntables, and hopefully everyone who waited in line was able to get in for the hijinks. A great homecoming for me, thanks everyone! Photo by Morgan Rindengan.
My Worst of the Worst art retrospective opens at Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Gallery in Los Angeles on Saturday, August 5th.

On display will be over 20 years of skate graphics for Antihero, plus the beloved pigeon wall and some of my studio work as well. If you demand more, the following Saturday, Aug 12th i’ll be doing an artist’s talk at the gallery from 1-3pm. Hope to see you there, should be a good time. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
Check this out on Vice Daily, an interview they conducted as we walked through the Toronto stop for my Worst of the Worst art retrospective. I did my best to tell the truth, like Sean Spicer. https://www.go90.com/videos/0xkOBQF2rVv

I recently talked to The Hundreds’ Anthony Pappalardo about my current Worst of the Worst retrospective…we discussed a great many things, a great many things indeed. Among them : the screenplays i’ll never write, as well as my history with Antihero. Anthony says a lot of nice things about me i don’t necessarily agree with. Check it out for yourself, and thanks to The Hundreds! The Hundreds interview TF
