1992 Jason Lee David Bowie Aladdin Sane

Holy crap another Jason Lee board! Besides old Dogtown and Powell stuff Jason Lee's boards are the only things people have selling for the last two months. No loss though, most of the these boards are great to look at and bring back even better memories.
So here it is, one Jason Lee David Bowie tribute board for your bidding pleasure. Released in 1992 by Blind skateboards. AOS claims that the artist is unknown. More than likely is was either Sean Cliver or Marc Mckee that scanned the cover of Bowie's Aladdin Sane and threw this graphic together. Never mounted, never gripped, no warp. Currently buy it now for $3,500 with five days to go here.

I got a chance to meet GUNSHO at Lab Boston's Bare Knuckle Brawlers show last Friday. Funny thing is that I've known him since I was 14, I just haven't seen him in 15 years. Anyway his new stuff looks amazing and if you hurry up and run down to Lab before they close you might just be able to see some of it in person. If you can't make it you can always check out more of his work on his website.

Lab Boston R.I.P.

If you haven't heard the awful news yet, Lab Boston's physical store/ gallery will be closing early next month. I want thank Kim and Todd for all of the great opportunities and even better times they have given to me and the rest of the community over the past few years. You guys are the best, good luck on all your new endeavors.
On a brighter note they are going to keep the online store open and they are throwing their last art show tonight! All the info for it can be found here. So come down to Lab, have a drink and celebrate the great times we have all had together.

This is work by KEM, or KEMS, or KEMR, or KEM5 or what ever the kids are calling him these days. This dude has been killing it for what seems like ever. I think the first time I ever saw some of his work was in Scribble Magazine in 94 and at that time he was a fully established one man wrecking crew. Nasty then and even more incredible now. Recently I heard a rumor on twelve ounce that he may be from some where around the New England area, if so I would love to meet him someday. This could be completely wrong though because in the same post it said he was ten foot tall, smoked a corncob pipe and invented the question mark.

NOS Santa Cruz Keith Meek Slasher Skateboard Deck 1986

An amazing specimen with a cool story go go with it. The seller wrote "Up for auction today is a NOS '86 Santa Cruz Keith Meek "Slasher" skateboard deck. Art by one of the greatest skate/ surf artist ever walk the earth, Jim Phillips. No re-issue here. Straight up real deal. From exchanging details with other deck heads and Meek himself, I've only been able to conclude there are maybe 4 known NOS models floating around. Maybe 3 as I can't tie the one in Phillips art book and the one Meek states he has as the same one. Might be 3. Hens teeth NOS maybe a better description. As well stated was there was probably a run of 20000 done at the time. Not a large number when compared to other Santa Cruz Models.This to some is most assuredly a hole in their NOS Santa Cruz collection. Few storage marks. But nothing otherwise that would turn you off. Tight.".
Currently selling for $676.00 with 15 bids and less than two days here.

Apak Studio

Coming straight out Portland, Oregon is the creative duo known as Apak. Consisting of the Aron Piland and Ayumi Kajkawa, Apak is known in particular for creating rich and colorful gouache/acrylic paintings on wood featuring the utopian lives and adventures of curious little beings living in lush fantastic environments surrounded by friendly little animals, the landscapes are familiar yet surreal, hinting at a fantastic narrative while suggesting truths about the real world at the same time.

If my writing sounds extra fancy today, it's because I stole most of it from Apak's bio. You can read the rest of it and check out more of their work here.

The London Police

I'm too lazy to write anything interesting or witty today so I will just cut to the chase. This is the London Police, they are rad, this is a link to more of their work. Enjoy and stay dry.

1990 Jason Lee Blind Grinch Deck

Another Jason Lee Board? It must seem like I'm his biggest fan. It's not my fault the only good boards people have been selling lately just happen to be his pro models.

Originally released in 1990 with graphics by Andy Jenkins. Never mounted, never gripped, a few light scuffs. Not bad for a pretty rare deck. The buy it now is a little on the high side for $3500 here.

Fear No Art 3 @ Achilles Project 283 Summer St., Boston

Enjoy these dark and blurry photos I took at Fear No Art 3 last night. I really should look into buying a better camera, but then I wouldn't have any excuses for why my photos always suck.
