I haven't posted on here for a while and haven't been on any rides lately cuz I've been working too much on too many things.. but - one of those things I've been working on is this handmade photo book and I figured it was time for me to actually release it to the masses!
So save the date - the party is gonna be at Orange 20 Bikes on Feb 28th - same day as the Art Cycle Block party, so you should be there on Heliotrope anyways!!
The books will be for sale, the photo's up large on the walls andI'm trying to get PBR to sponsor it since they are prominently featured in the book, but no promises yet... also Yanco of YancoPads
and I are doing collaborative one off top tube pads - handmade by me and finished by Yanco which will also be available that night..
anyways - here's the little description I wrote for the book:
There are 27 black and white photo's in this 4" x 5.5" soft cover book. The shots are from different places I've been and different rides, races and events I was lucky enough to be a part of. Including Black Label's Bike Kill in Brooklyn, the Bicycle Kitchen in LA, bike messenger championships (CMWC's and NACCC's) and Worldcup velodrome championships on a wooden velodrome, street shots of fixed gear tricksters under the BQE and kids fixing bicycles in downtown LA and in the LES, pranksters riding the streets of LA, and artists rendering bicycles into their work.
Each has a hand printed cover with a stitched binding in neon orange thread.
some of you have seen them already....
Actually the only people who are invited are the people that like bikes. Or the people that like photos. I guess if you like both bikes and photo's then you can come too. If you love bikes or photo's or love both bicycles and photo's then you are also invited. Also if you like red heads you are invited. If you don't like red heads but like bikes or photo's then I guess you are still invited. If you don't like red heads but love bikes and only like photo's you can still come. But if you don't like bikes or photo's or red heads then maybe you're not invited. But if you think that maybe you'll switch to liking bikes or photo's or possibly even red heads after you see my photo's then I guess you can come.

Soooo guess what!!! PBR is sponsoring the party so there will be a bit (not super tons but a few cases) of free beer BUT since there's wierd laws in CA about giving away beer, it has to be a "private" event...
Soooooo whoever wants to come, please RSVP and tell me how many peeps you are coming with!
Hope to see a bunch of people I haven't seen in a while!!!!
02.23.09 - 6:59 pm

Look forward to this kick ass day!
