That is, until we met Claire Doody. This fiery chick gets it and is running with her new “feminine warrior, […]

What […]

This past weekend, an event known as Sticker Nerds 3 happened. Blood sweat and tears went into the making of these stickers and the volume of hand drawn stuff is impressive mostly because the large amount of demand from the artists did not effect the quality of what was produced. It looked like it was […]
What is not to learn is nothing at all. What is not to do simply cannot be done. Some girls just really, really, want to have fun. The umbrella of philosophy, made of the fabrics of the examined life, covers all of us from the drops of the unknown, drooping down permanently from the unrelenting […]

I took a new approach to finding those hidden gems that some call vandalism this week. Usually I have a neighborhood in mind before heading out, but this time I decided to drive until a tag caught my eye just simply heading south on the east side of town. A few blocks into the Hosford […]
They say that baseball is America’s pastime. Getting “taken out to the ballgame” is somewhat of a childhood obligation in this country, which I am certainly proud to be a part of, nonetheless, we enthusiastically stroll out in mass numbers to watch nine players on each side, stride and slide, gallantly in a baseball uniform, […]
I first met Jesse Malinowski after my sophomore year in college, while I was working at Inner City Empire screen printing in Seattle. Jesse was my manager there and between teaching me the craft, told me about the record company he had started. I was new to the scene, but respected his hustle and […]

This week was solid. Cool to see some pieces on trucks – it’s like a traveling art show and some new names up in No Po. The nights have been clearer and the night marauders are roaming. If anyone needs a lookout let me know. Also – if you know of hubs of street art […]

In the world of fashion, it is not often you find someone as comfortable in front of the camera as they are behind it.

Happy Thursday. I got out and about downtown this week to find some sunny throw-ups. Good work Portland, but I’m seeing a lot of painted over (now blank) walls, which is by no means your fault, but we can’t stand for this. Grab you cans, pens, or whatever your medium is and get those tags […]
