I grabbed the Canon G9 and headed to Brooklyn Projects opening and launch of the Nemo produced book FREESTYLIN’. Nike SB’s, John Martin asked Nemo creative director Mark Lewman if he could do anything for BMX what would he do. Lewman brought the old band together from the Freestylin’ days and put together an amazing historical outline of the pioneering days of freestyle BMX. Spike Jones and Andy Jenkins collaborated in their original roles and put together the book.

BMX racing will debut in China at the Olympics next month and Nike SB has been doing promotions to bring focus to the new event. Michael Lau designed special limited edition Blazers for the promotion and if you were at the party in LA the he also design two special edition toys and a show box that is so unique and original!

Could this be a marketers dream come true?

Install secret (or branded) messages into flash photos. Aparently Julius von Bismarck has McGivered a remote optical slave through a telephoto lens to project a message onto any surface. From the reaction of the people on the video it is a real deal. It isn’t rocket science and he shows you how to do it on his website.

Do you think it is real or staged?

Daniel Sharp’s series The Freedom Wheels is “a collection of photographs taken from 2003-present, many a documentary of my travels pedaling trough Europe and India where I discovered the world is already traveling by bike.

Our friends in sister city Burlington, VT. are presenting a solo by Dave Kinsey; Paper Trail.

Dave Kinsey was born in Pittsburgh in 1971 and attended the Art
Institute of Pittsburgh and the Art Institute of Atlanta before moving to California in 1994 to pursue a career as a designer and fine artist. His work captures the universal essence of the human condition mainly through an energetic portrayal of urban figures. Working spontaneously, and utilizing a range of mediums, he constructs multi-layered, textured environments easily likened to the complexities of contemporary life. His portraits depict beings who are both triumphant in their defiant stance to their surroundings, and tragic, as they transmit a visual display of raw emotion and jangled nerves. The style and substance of his body of work originates in street art, and in keeping with his goal “to expose as many people to art as possible and to honor the power art has when it’s created and accepted”, Kinsey founded BLK/ MRKT Gallery in 2001, allowing him to provide a crossroads for a new movement of young and electrifying iconoclasts. In addition to these pursuits his fine art has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide, among these a recent exhibition at the URBIS Museum in Manchester and Art Brussels in Belgium. He has also been featured in such publications as The New York Times, Black Book and BLK/MRKT One and Two, and invited to speak at numerous institutions such as The Art Center College of Design, UCLA, Montserrat College of Art and most recently, the Semi-Permanent conference in Sydney, Australia.
