  • Vans Propeller: A Masterpiece 50 Years In The Making

    Vns_Propeller_Itunes_Ad.jpg7_Today is the day.  50 years in the making and with over 5 years of footage, Vans releases it's first ever full length skateboarding video!  We got a first look at the world premier held at the beautiful Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles.  Luckily, we got tickets in advance as the premier sold out and was packed full.  Crazy to think that this is Vans' first skate video, but it was well worth the wait.   No one was prepared for what we were about to see...

    The Team: Cab, Caples, Lutheran, Hunt Allen, Walker, Chima, Rowan, Dustin, Rowley, AVE, Barros, Grosso, Pfanner, Berle, Crockett, Hassan, Dill, Cardiel, Trujillo, Hosoi, Barbee, Alva.  What a lineup!  Everyone delivers, too many bangers to remember...can't wait to watch this at least 10 more times!

    One of the best skate teams out there.  So many amazing skaters...Who's part will be your favorite?

    tumblr_nmkhmeBPTZ1s593tro1_1280

    My personal favorite.  #1 - A.V.E.  They saved the best for last, that's for sure.

    IMG_0127

    That may have been the best skate video I have ever seen.  Greg Hunt created a masterpiece, it took a few years, but you can't rush perfection.  This is a straight-up gnarly skateboarding video.  A modern take on all aspects and generations of skateboarding that will make you want to get on your board and never stop pushing.  Full parts from some of the best in the business.  Check out Propeller today, get amped, lace up your Vans and go skate!

  • Neckface - Drinkin' On The Job @ New Image Art

    We're no strangers to New Image Art Gallery, so when they announced a solo NeckFace exhibition on a Friday night, it was on! The name and theme of the show was "Drinkin' On The Job" and it seemed fitting to head down to Hollywood and have a beer while shooting some rad pieces.

    Neck_Flier

    I showed up just before doors opened at seven and was blown away by the huge line to get in, it went all the way down the block and was starting to wrap around the corner. Neckface and free beer on a Friday were the right ingredients to start a party and as the night went on, things got pretty wild!

    3P1A9779

    3P1A9785

    The line moved slowly and the entire sidewalk filled up as we waited. It was basically the equivalent of tailgating before a football game, everyone was partying in line before entering and it got even crazier as we went in.

    3P1A9787

    3P1A9835

    The gallery was packed, hot, and the free beer was running out fast. I made my way through the drunken crowd and saw tons of awesome Neckface pieces scattered all around the room. I know some of the beer bottles and cans were placed on purpose to go with the theme of the show, but they really started to pile up towards the end of the night. The art seemed to be in it's natural habitat and I'm sure it's exactly what Neckface wanted.

    3P1A9792

    What do you spend your money on?

    3P1A9794

    Simple math, it makes sense...

    3P1A9795

    Are you a beer??? Classic Neckface, hilarious.

    3P1A9812

    This one cracked me up! Damn, It's dead in here...

    3P1A9811

    3P1A9814

    Lots of love on Instagram tonight:  @nastyneckface1 #Neckface #Drinkinonthejob #newimageart

    These custom Neckface kegs were insane! Some interesting characters hanging out around them as well...

    3P1A9805

    3P1A9803

    3P1A9806

    3P1A9808

    New Image Art was one big party tonight, I bet they didn't know it was going to get this crazy!

    3P1A9802

    If I get shot, you get shot!!! This was a huge piece that you saw right when you walked inside.

    3P1A9844

    Even after the gallery closed, the party raged on in the streets of Hollywood. Not sure how the cops allowed this to happen... Only Neckface can bring together such a rowdy crowd for an art show!

    3P1A9847

    The "Drinkin' On The Job" exhibition is on display at New Image Art (7920 Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood) until September 13th. It won't be as rowdy, but go check out some awesome and hilarious art while you can.

     

  • Andrew Reynolds "Polaroids"

    IMG_7241

    Recently, iconic professional skateboarder Andrew Reynolds gave the public a glimpse into his life through a series of his personal Polaroids and 35mm prints. I have skated for over fifteen years and grew up watching “The Boss” Andrew Reynolds kill it year after year. I made sure to be there for opening night of the exhibition at the well-respected Known Gallery on LA’s street-wear mecca: Fairfax Avenue.

    The event was curated by Vice’s Patrick O’Dell who gives his viewers a look into the lives of pro skaters through a video series called Epicly Later’d.  O’Dell found tons of unique photographs stashed away in Boss man’s house and even though Reynolds had no intention of sharing them, O’Dell had to. Reynolds has been shooting photos since he was a young skater and has kept these memories of skating in his driveway, his first Birdhouse tours with Tony Hawk and the shenanigans that went on with the Baker boys. It was amazing to see these photos and imagine the stories that went along with most of them. The exhibit was only open for a few days, so if you missed out, take a look and enjoy!

    IMG_7259As soon as you walk in, the place was packed! Dustin Dollin and tons of pro skaters were there to support.

    IMG_7219Stoked to see this jumbo Polaroid of the infamous Antwuan Dixon right when you walk in. Legend!

    IMG_7261Followed up by two amazing skaters: Slash and Ali Boulala. Classic Ali right there!

    IMG_7242

    Before The Boss: some amazing childhood photos of Andrew mastering his craft on a skateboard.

    IMG_7233

    Down the line. Endless Polaroids. Brayden and photos of all the homies.

    IMG_7223

    Andrew's daughters, Kevin "Spanky" Long and more of Dustin Dollin.

    Erik Ellington and Jerry Hsu Two completely different skaters, right next to each other. Awesome to see!

    IMG_7227

    Nasty Neckface. Incredible artist, always a part of the skate scene. That wraps up the left side of the exhibit.

    IMG_7229

    So awesome to see all of the portrait Polaroids all framed together. This was a center piece at the back of the exhibit as you made your way around the room. A lot of these were blown up and used for the show.

    IMG_7248

    The future of skateboarding. Always good to see youngsters hopping on a board! He's got tricks too!

    IMG_7255

    The crowd from the back. Tons of support for The Boss from the skateboard community.

    IMG_7230

    THE BOSS. Passed out with some munchies. I wonder what he thinks looking back at this one. Is this good?

    Hmmm...what are you up to Andrew?? Bet there's a story behind this one...

    IMG_7251

    IMG_7257

    IMG_7256

    IMG_7258Here's a good one. Jim Greco after losing a little something. Pain, then surprise and relief.

    IMG_7239

    Such a great event and I hope more skaters put on similar shows. This was a photographic version of Epicly Later'd, each photo told a story about some point in the life of Andrew Reynolds. So glad that Patrick O'Dell decided to put this together and gave us a rare look at some of the crazy times in Andrew's life. It's always so inspiring to see the skateboard community come together and support each other. Andrew is 36 and reached legend status years ago, don't ever stop doing what you love! Skateboarding is my passion, it's the best thing ever. This show definitely confirmed how much I love skating and got me stoked to get out there and skate.

  • HEX x Option-G Release And Book Signing At MOCA

    IMG_1803

    Recently we had the pleasure of spending some time with artist, Cole Gerst, of Option-G Communications at The Museum Of Contemporary Art (MOCA) for a book signing and release of our collaborative collection in Los Angeles. The museum was also opening their Mike Kelley exhibit, so we were in good company.

    IMG_1807cc

    Cole hails from Portland these days, but took some time out of his busy schedule to jump down to LA for the event.  The place looked great and was well stocked with HEX x Option-G gear as well as Cole's latest book, Buckminster Fuller: Poet Of Geometry.

    We assume that, since you are here reading this, you know something about HEX.  As for Cole, he is best known as an artist and illustrator widely credited for the resurgence of the "gig" poster for clients like House Of Blues, Modest Mouse, Beck, The Shins, Bright Eyes, and Interpol.

    IMG_1849cc

    With our love of the arts and Cole's incredible aesthetic, a collaboration was a no-brainer. The concept began with a traditional toile pulled into HEX’s world of music, art, design, and architecture. The result was “take your pleasure seriously”.  A daydream of leaving life in the city and escaping to the cabin in the woods….relaxing, listening to music and contemplating mystical creatures, geometry and architecture.

    Cole saw some old friends and new fans, signed books and sold bags until all were satisfied.  We hope you were able to make it out to this special event.  However, in case you weren't, you can get the vibe from these images and video clip.  See you next time and thanks to MOCA for being great hosts.

  • HEX At Modernism Week

    If you ask me, nothing quite compares with a road trip.  Well, maybe not just any road trip, but a good one is tough to beat for sure.  We took The HEX Bus out over some remnants of Route 66 to the annual minimalist mecca known as Modernism Week Palm Springs.

    For all of you who are wondering, our 1963 made the 2 1/2 hour drive with flying colors.  We made friends the whole way, as evidenced by all the many thumbs up , smiles, and nods of respect.  We were boss in The Bus.

    IMG_9481

    IMG_9477

    We checked out some serious standouts in the world of California Modern design ranging from the famous Palm Springs Visitor Center with its impossibly cantilevered roof, to the experimental tract of Alexander Steel homes, to some great examples of restoration in Racquet Club Estates, to examples of Neutra and Donald Wexler.

    This was the town of the Rat Pack - Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Dean Martin, and a few less-savory folks as well.  Legend has it that The Chairman Of The Board would raise his flags high at his Twin Palms estate so all his friends knew if he was home and ready to party.

    We posted The HEX Bus up on Palm Canyon Drive Thursday night outside of BAR and sold some special HEX gear and chewed the fat with some people who seemed as though their whole mission in life was to talk to only us.
    DSC01776

    The next day, our rolling pop-up-shop moved to the Pre-Fab marketplace put on by Modernism Week.  This was great to see all the advances in design and modular building.  There happened to be a vintage car auction going on right across the street that brought many people over to try to entice us to sell our beloved bus, but the answer was always "No."IMG_9713

    IMG_9710

    In the end, we enjoyed a relaxing night at the Ace Hotel - I would highly recommend the orange-riccotta pancakes - saw some great design and architecture and got to visit some of our favorite stores like Just Fabulous, Modernway, and Just Modern.  But beyond all this, we got to connect at a very personal level with people who enjoy great design, just like we do and spread the word about HEX all over town.
