Geoff McFetridge is the Best!

… and I’m stoked to be getting a bike designed by him this year. I first was introduced to Geoff’s work when I used to skateboard religiously, as I’m sure many of you did at one point. Who else had those McFetridge Vandals?

In the 90’s, when skateboarding and larger names like Nike began to look to artists to revitalize their brands, Geoff’s work inspired me. Even in my 30’s I still love seeing what he’s been up to.

Looking good dude and I love seeing race numbers hanging in studios like this.

The Sleepers: High Water by Devon Tsuno

The homies in Los Angeles are always up to some good:

“The Department of Art and Design at Azusa Pacific University presents High Water,a solo exhibition and large scale screen-printing workshop by Devon Tsuno. In his first body of work using risograph and screen-printing processes, High Water is an educational exhibition, inaugurating the first in a series of new Windgate Workshops hosted by the Department of Art and Design.

For over a decade, Tsuno has wandered the San Gabriel River drainage system, a stone’s throw from the APU campus, documenting the disjunctive economic and topographic relationship between streams and rock quarries. The product of this disjunctive relationship has created an area of “hard-rock” quarry mining water flowing through a “managed” natural landscape.

Tsuno will collaborate and create works with students, using a large-scale format 60 x 84 inch screen print, on handmade Japanese Kochi Mashi Washi paper. This will provide students the opportunity to learn through real world work experience. The new workshop is made possible with generous support from the Windgate Foundation and presents students with the unique opportunity to work side-by-side with professional artists like Tsuno, by collaborating, discussing and creating tangible works.”

We all ride bikes but it’s what we do to occupy ourselves in the meantime that defines us. Love this video!

Chris McNally’s Paper Boy

I absolutely love Chris McNally‘s work. His watercolor illustrations really capture the spirit of getting out and riding your bike. Ok, ok, whatever, but he’s damn good at what he does! Check out his latest “creation”… Thanks for the heads up Pearl Velo!
