Vintage Keith Haring


Keith Haring was a generous soul. He gave and gave till the very end. I feel lucky to of called him a friend, even if it was only through many, many letters. I was stoked to see this vintage board recently that Keith had drawn on, most likely for some fan. That's how Keith was - he drew on everything. We wrote each other about art, cartoons and style. I hold the two drawings Keith sent me, just months before his death, very dear. Peace Keith.

Beautiful Losers


BEAUTIFUL LOSERS celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation

In the early 's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture.

Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth.

Some of my favorite artist from the film are:


Ed Templeton was born in Orange County, California, a sprawling suburb of Los Angeles where he still lives today with his wife of 16 years, Deanna. He discovered skateboarding in middle school and quickly went pro before finishing high school. He has devoted his life to it since then. It was skateboarding that gave him opportunities to tour Europe where he spent every free moment absorbing its galleries and art museums. Templeton began to exhibit his works in small galleries and skateboard shops, eventually moving on to large galleries and institutions. His photographs give a sun-drenched glimpse of what it might be like to be young and alive in what Templeton refers to as "the suburban domestic incubator". His first major European museum exhibition opened in October at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. Since then, he has exhibited his paintings and photographs worldwide. Templeton is the founder of Toy Machine, a blood-sucking skateboard company. He has also done design work for Grand Royal, Spin, Geffen and Factory Records and is currently one of the principles behind ANP Quarterly, a large format art & culture magazine.


Aaron Rose is an artist, writer and independent curator currently living in Los Angeles. Aaron founded the highly influential Alleged Gallery in New York, curating shows there for ten years. In the s, Rose produced numerous short films and worked as a producer/director for MTV Networks producing on-air promos in conjunction with contemporary artists and indie-directors. Since , Rose has been working as a freelance curator, choosing artists for the Undefeated Billboard Project, a public art project in Los Angeles produced in conjunction with Nike. He is co-curator of the large-scale museum exhibition Beautiful Losers: Contemporary Art & Street Culture", which will tour the world through the end of In addition to curating other exhibitions and publishing books under a new publishing label, Alleged Press, Rose is co-editing a quarterly large format art magazine (ANP Quarterly), which is offered free as an outreach of RVCA Clothing's non-profit initiative the Artist Network Program.


Thomas Campbell is a painter, photographer and filmmaker. An entirely self-taught artist, his work directly reflects his life and draws from his experience traversing around the globe on surf trips. During his short breaks between adventures, he has been known to lock himself in for days on binges that produce literally hundreds of fresh drawings and works on canvas. Campbell has mounted solo exhibitions at galleries in New York, Paris, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris and Morocco. His feature length surfing films The Seedling and Sprout have been avidly embraced by the surfing community worldwide. He is also creative director for a small independent record label, Galaxia, which has released records by contemporary artists Tommy Guerrero, Ray Barbee, Peggy Honeywell and Black Heart Procession.


Deanna Templeton has always taken photos. When she was 15, her mother bought her a Cannon T for coming back home after running away. When she was 21, she got a Yashica point and shoot. She now has a whole bevy of cameras to choose from, and seems to always have one with her. In Deanna's photographs you see an eye to the feminine experience, &#;the cracks that are forming in that false persona of being a girl in this day and age. She explores what being a child, or a woman feels like today. The photos leave you with more questions than answers, like good art should. Her work has previously been shown at n44 in Paris, Museum Het Domein in The Netherlands and the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia.

Unlike a lot of so called 'aussie slang', this is an expression actually used



What is it with you australians and thinking you invented every slang term?!?! :lol:
I get it so often over here - an aussie telling me the meaning of a word they think is theirs when its, for example, cockney rhyming slang.

Anyway, the term chocka (yup, from chock-a-block, meaning full. Also chocker, or chockers) was probably around before the first white man got to Australia! It's a pretty common phrase in the UK, particularly London and the southeast. I've never heard it in the line-up, but I've heard "gor blimey, it's chocka in 'ere tonight" in the pub many, many times :lol:

You'll probably find me surfing, but if not, I'll probably be in the photography studio

Bells Beach

Bells Beach is one of the great right point breaks. Find it on the south Victorian coastline of Australia. Check out the Bells Beach Pro held in March every year. This was the setting for that tearful end bit in the movie "Point Break" when Patrick (twinkletoes) Swayze AKA Bodie ate it at the end of Point Break. (And no doubt that after reading the waves page and finding out what a point break actually is, you're feeling particularly chuffed with yourself!)
It should also be pointed out that it was not actually Bells Beach where the scene was filmed but India Beach in Oregon. Thanks to Danny from Oregon for this info.

TC Electronic Choka Tremolo Tremolo is the subtlest and simplest of modulation effects and as such, no good amp should be without it. However, as it turns out, many of them are. Choka Tremolo's intuitive 3-knob layout lets you easily crank out fast waves that either cut deep or leave shallow furrows across your tone, or slow tides that ebb and flow with just the right amount of white-capped tubes you need for a satisfactory surf tone. Soft and hard LFO – versatility Choka features a knob that lets you seamlessly fine tune the waveform of the LFO to your specific sound. You can either go totally triangle mode for the classic California tube amp tone or full-on square mode for dramatic chopping riffs. Of course, you can choose to be the bigger man and compromise - find the exact place between the waves where your sound lies.

Beautiful Losers


BEAUTIFUL LOSERS celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation

In the early 's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery, choka surf. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture.

Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal pop sports nba series 2. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting choka surf artists and today's youth.

Some of my favorite artist from the film are:


Ed Templeton was born in Orange County, California, a sprawling suburb of Los Angeles where he still lives today with his wife of 16 years, Deanna. He discovered skateboarding in middle school and quickly went pro before finishing high school. He has devoted his life to it since then. It was skateboarding that gave him opportunities to tour Europe where he spent every free moment absorbing its galleries and art museums.
