Doesn’t matter if you’re in advertising, design, or freakin’ basket weaving. The most successful are usually the most self-disciplined. In short, the ones who “do it and get it done … no fuckin’ around.” Wise words.
Though I missed the REBEL8 “Return of the Lost Angels” event by a week (video here and recap at Fatlace) I was lucky enough to drive down Melrose in time to catch the huge bomb Mike Giant dropped on the Shepard Fairey wall at De La Barracuda.
Speaking of Elvis busts, had to show off my decanter sportin’ REBEL8 steez. Not the first time their gear’s popped up on the Umlaut.
Joshy D gave me this sticker back in ’04 when I was teaching at Academy of Art. He and Mike Giant were only a year into launching REBEL8. Then I was just happy to spot their gear around SF. Now, they’re on meteoric rise beyond the Bay. On Travis Barker and Lil Wayne. In insane collabs with SF’s Benny Gold and even Vans Shoes. I could not be more stoked.
