What have you been up to recently? (trips, projects, work?)

I recently went up to Santa Cruz and San Francisco with some of the Jackass crew to stay with old skateboarding legend Jason Jessee.  That was a good time.  We threw hatchets every morning and fed his turkey and rooster collection.  It was the first time in my life i rode a horse and shot a gun and almost got crushed by a sea lion.  Last month I climbed Half Dome in Yosemite with the most epic crew of Mexicans.  It was gnarly up there.  9,000 feet up on wires in a straw hat.  It was scary.  The Mexicans packed huge zip lock bags filled with salted spicy dried crickets.  Its amazing how thirsty one can get after eating just one cricket.

Advice to other creative’s/aspiring artists?

I came to America 20 years ago with nothing.  I still have nothing.  Actually wait no.  Thats not true.  I just aquired the dirt bike from the Rambo First Blood movie.  It rules not that its running.  Coolest thing I own now.  Gosh advicewise Im not sure-  Shoot Everything!! Keep Moving!!

Who is or where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for?

My inspiration comes from my friend Harry.  He drove trucks through the jungle in the Vietnam war in 69.  I ride motorcycles with him and we cruise around on his wooden sail boat.  Hes a total Pirate and the only free man I know and still lives in the 70s.  Hes my friend and without a doubt Im inspired by his adventures and his tales.
