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. Sponsored by Vans and Antihero, the opening will have a couple noteworthy DJs and lots to see. 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 email@example.com
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
Coming soon from Antihero is “Its The Shit,” a pro set of decks that isn’t afraid to laugh at poo poo jokes. Here are two of them, decks for Peter Hewitt and Chris Pfanner. In shops soon, stay tuned for more yukks.
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
If you live in the SF Bay Area, or you’re willing to travel great distances for a hollowed out sourdough roll filled with clam chowder, set aside the night of Saturday, June 24th for my next Worst of the Worst art shows, sponsored by Vans and Antihero. Details coming soon. Wear something tight.
Arriving in shops now from Antihero is Where Are They Now?, a bad trip down memory lane. Each takes a memorable graphic from yesteryear and fast forwards to today…it ain’t pretty. Decks for Julien, Russo, Cardiel and TNT, these were created in conjuction with Vans-sponsored Worst of the Worst art shows currently underway.
The June issue of Penthouse arrives any minute now, and inside you’ll be overjoyed to find my latest Fun Page. I hope you’ve taught your kids how to swim. Inside you’ll also find great work from Porous Walker, Leah McSweeney, Sam Phillips, Chris Nieratko and Dave Carnie. Get yourself a copy, smiley.
Here’s a small slice of my Worst of the Worst art retrospective, currently showing at Toronto’s Blue Tile Lounge. The show, sponsored by Vans Canada, will be up May 12th through May 19th, and while the signed decks all sold out, there are still some signed screenprints available. The Friday night opening was fun, featuring an enthusiastic crowd and music by John Cardiel aka DJ Juan Love. Go see if for yourself if you’re in the area. Photo by Dan Mathieu.
