Spent the day in the garage/studio shooting 35+ crazy, awesome, amazing, "holy-crap-that's-rad," pieces of artwork done on skateboards for the upcoming ON DECK 7 art auction. The auction benefits the Montana Skatepark Association's mission of helping towns in Montana fund, design and build free, concrete skateparks. What's not to love about that?
Had a pretty darn nice article in the Missoulian newspaper yesterday. It mainly centered around the park turning 5 years old, but was photo-heavy...with my images...which I love. I was quoted in the article several times, but perhaps the best part was the sentence that starts out, "Kemmis is no spring chicken...." Gotta love that!
The printed version is more impressive as the images ran large, but here are a couple of screen grabs from the missoulian.com which get the point across.
A while back I designed a manual for the Montana Skatepark Association - a non-profit organization I have been working with for the last 10 years or so. The manual helps other MT towns get started with implementing skateboard camps. Seen below is the cover image of Ryan Bailey poppin' in after a 5/0 at MOBASH.
