Smile On Your Brother!

My good friend Bob Kronbauer has teamed up with Mike Giles and Annie Lam, founders of a Canadian charity called Contributor, to curate an art show called “Smile On Your Brother”. The show features 50 hand crafted, oak skateboards covered with art by artists from all over the world. The boards will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going towards a fund that will supply skateboards to Canadian kids who might not otherwise be able to afford them! The show opens here in Vancouver at Livestock (Gastown) on Monday, August 24th. Be there!

Artists include: Don Pendleton, Thomas Campbell, Andrew Pommier, Mike Perry, Julien Valee… you get the idea – the roster is no joke!

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
