TABLE TALK: Episode 2 – Pastras Chats with Geoff McFetridge

For this, our second installment of Monster Children’s Table Talk series, presented by Richer Poorer and hosted by yours truly, we feature prolific artist and good friend Geoff McFetridge. Besides being a hugely inspirational art world character, Geoff is a ripping skateboarder!! So we got in some slappies to prove it, and then had Geoff give us a one of a kind all-access tour though his studio, and through his very detailed process. Let's just say I will no longer feel comfortable buying my pre-mixed acrylic tubes at Blick. Geoff is a serious Scientist of Color! His work and process will blow you away, I know it did me. Thank you again Geoff for the access and for one of...

Jordan Hoffart's Skate-able Home

http://HypeBeast.com/2015/6/spaces-jordan-hoffarts-skate-able-home Not only does Jordan Hoffart eat, sleep and breathe skateboarding, he lives it — both literally and figuratively. The Canadian native made the move South to Vista, California some years ago and naturally required a house to call home. With no established credit, Hoffart chose a foreclosure due to the agreeable price and amount of yard space. With the help of his experienced friends Josh Hawkins and Kyle Berard, the house was completely gutted and built around Hoffart’s eclectic personality and profession. Fully skateable from front to back, the property sees a mini-quarter pipe, lips, ledges, kickers, a huge bowl that took around six weeks to build, and the “Canadian mud lump.” Moving inside, the home is chock full...

Eastside LA with Pastras and buds for Richer Poorer

Christian Maalouf, Daniel Shimizu, Taylor Caruso, and myself grabbed a morning coffee in our neighborhood of Echo Park, and bombed the hill leading into Elysian Park, it’s quite a wake up! Trouble opening your eyes? Bomb a huge hill! It works. Then we headed to the stairs in the intro of the video. Little Echo Park history on those stairs, they lead up to the old estate of the silent film star W.C. Fields, an estate which later belonged to skate legend Christain Hosoi. I remember walking up them to skate Christians vert ramp w. Jason lee and Mark Gonzales in ’90-’91 when I first moved to California. In fact, the vert clips in Blind Skateboards “Video Days” were filmed...
