#found this portrait by @ancomragstoriches got of me not landing a trick2013/4 second photo landed the trick but photo looked dumb. Can't remember who put me into contact with Thrasher art dept person, but through correspondence, if I provided a photo of me doing a trick on skateboard, I was getting the greenlight for a double page art feature...spread in the mag due to connection. Other then goofing off w friends, avoiding the jock heads of modern skating, and using it as a poor man's way to get around city blocks, I wasn't sure if that was exactly what they meant in my writing portion of skateboard culture and it's importance to me and my art. At this point my trick list and body seemed rather skate adverse, but it seemed like a good potential meal ticket, and bragging rights being in thrasher etc...studio mate borrowed me his board and took the camera #safetysecondbodylast mentality said try to be a slacker and just do the biggest acid drop possible off something that can propel you higher than you can jump... End of story, worse knee later and the connection changed their mind to wanting sequencial photos for layout purposes , a few more tricks but to keep it looking basic, and started to prob notice I don't really have "skateboard" art..or so what I imagine working w graphic designer and graphic design firms feels like (I usually just eject if my balls aren't stuck in finances ) I think I was tired of dealing w the *onemorethings of that business and at that point the difficulties of obamacare launching in PVD and insurance companies botching on my meds. Anyways, enjoy this photo of a young fertile, more hopeful and idealistic hesher version of me. #dailydrawing #artcollector
*If u are the person w the thrasher connection, hit me up, my brain is boggled who put me in contact, and really just wtf
And this photo still makes me giggle ♠🐼

#16 - The Locust - Safety Second Body Last - Too many Locust albums to list but this is one of those bands that is responsible for widening my musical open mindedness as a youngster. Always loved the opening 30 seconds that was then followed by the eerie synth movement. Classic grind onslaught followed by silence and modulated sounds. Bands like this taught me one simple lesson in the grand scheme of life - What some people consider garbage, others consider treasure. To me this is treasure. #threeoneg #radiosurgery #ipecac #safetysecondbodylast #southern #neilburke #thelocust #nowspinning #vinyl #lp #trianvinylarchive
The Locust - Safety Second, Body Last. This was one of the first records I ever bought. I was obsessed with these guys at the time and knew what they looked like without their costumes, so I managed to track down Justin Pearson and Bobby Bray after a show and had them sign this thing. Quite possibly the strangest album I own, but I still love it. #thelocust #justinpearson #bobbybray #safetysecondbodylast #vinyligclub
Not including an lp and cd this is my #threeoneg merch.
