|NEW YORK CITY||34°F||rain, mist|
Hello! Welcome to the News section. Check back often for updates.
I was invited to contribute to a wonderful auction happening this Thursday, July 14th. Collective Good received 30 blank skateboard decks, and distributed them to some inspiring creatives around the Bay Area. They asked that we share our thoughts and feelings on the devastation in Japan. The skateboards will be auctioned off for charity, with 100% of the proceeds going to aid the rebuilding efforts in Japan.
To help bring my idea to life, I contacted Luke Bartels, a local artisan in SF—who’s a part of the team at Woodshop. (This guy is amazing, you should hire him immediately!) To emphasize the concept of urgency, I painted the colors of Japan melting. I used semi-gloss house paint, and coated it with a lacquer finish.
If you’re in the Bay Area, you should definitely stop by. It’s getting great press from the likes of GOOD magazine—so hopefully a lot of people come out and spend some money on this worthy cause. Big thanks to Dan Cohen, the founder of Collective Good!
