Went to Chaz Bojorquez's art show at the Plaza De La Raza, in L.A last Friday. I showed up super early to avoid the masses of people. It was nice to be able to enjoy seeing his art, because it did get very crowded. Lots of people, artists and photograhpers showed up to pay respects to this man. Its been a while since he has had a solo show and I hope that he continues to have more soon! Always have been a big fan of Chaz. His work has inspired me and tons of other artists through out the world. I was very glad that I had the chance to talk with him and have him sign my book. Big thanks to my friend Les from Division Creative Foundry for hooking me up with one of his for the show. They were only givin to friends and family at the show, and I feel very honored!
My good friend Andre Perales has just opened his own art gallery called the Speak Easy, in my home town Whittier. Its located in the Uptown Whittier Village. Last weekend I was apart of his opening show called the "Dirty Dozen", along with 12 other artists... Big Congrats to my homie Andre on his new endeavor and on his success with his business Tip Top Barber Shop. I am very proud of him and all that he has accomplished. He is a well rounded business man, tattoer, and barber. He has always been a great friend.

I am very proud of T-bone of NOISE Cycles for winning Best of Show along with a $2000 cash prize. I am humbled to have been apart of his build... We had finished this bike in such a hurry for Brooklyn Invitational and now that T-bone has worked all the kinks out of it this was the first time it has been debuted at a show here in So Cal. There was a crowd around the bike the whole day at the show and everyone was talking about how great it was! Really made me feel good! Big thanks to Jason, the owner of the bike. He has been one of my best customers. Super cool dude. He had a lot of input on the paint scheme and at the same time allowed me to do what ever I felt like with it.

David Mann Chopper Fest was amazing. I think it was the best one yet, for many reasons. The trophies came out so good. I am really glad and honored to have Tom Fugle and my friend Pacman help me with these trophies! Without there help and dedication these trophies would not have been possible. Big up to my homie T-bone for winning Best of Show!!!!
