Gracias Por Nada

Written by 

This is the 1st San Fernando Valley Skate Art showcase I can think of so I was definitely there! I showed up pretty early and it was already hopping just after opening time. I grabbed an 818 Brewery blonde ale  and settled in to take in the creations representing the S.F.V. on the walls of the 11:11 A Creative Collective's new spot in Reseda CA. Opening night featured music by DJ Ripoff & Lady Petrol and they were groovin us hard. Val Jerks helped to rope me into contributing some pics and art (a first for me) so I was definitely vested and eager to check this out. I was very stoked on it. Here's some flavor to suck on:

Welcome to the Show, you Val Kook.... er,  ..a.. Jerk!!

From here down the page for a little while is a great sampling of many of the artworks to view. Pictures really never does artwork justice, but it gives you a good idea of what you'll find. I strongly recommend going and seeing it yourself, and buy a piece if you like it. Make an artist happy, support a grass roots gallery, and help it perpetuate for more in the future.

I think these bad ass decks are to benfit the Quechan Memorial Skate Park (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Quechan-Memorial-Skate-Park/690059594363313), a very worthy cause!
