This past Saturday was the gallery opening and book release party for Marc McKee. For over 20 years, Marc's been one of the main illustrators for all things Dwindle. He's done graphics for everyone from Natas to Sheckler, and has managed to always keep it controversial. The gallery is up until April 10th at the HVW8 Art + Design Gallery in Los Angeles. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth checking out. If not, you can get one of the books here.
Catered by a taco truck means you know it’s going to be good.
It was a packed house.
Dwindle’s own Luis Cruz.
BLVD Ams Jose Pereyra and Nate Fantasia were stoked to be in town.
Copies of the original Cease and Desists from the Colvinetics and Jason Lee Whopper decks.
The original drawings for the Fucked Up Blind Kids.
McKee has done dozens of James Craig graphics by now, but if one had to go on the wall, you know it’s going to be the Lakers championship with Jack Nicholson.
Musician Ben Harper even showed up to the opening with his son, both of whom are down for Dwindle and McKee.
Marc stayed busy all night signing copies of his new book. At one point the line to get the book signed was longer than the line for beer. That’s when you know it’s a good show.
In This Issue Skater of the Year 2014, Wes Kremer, floats onto the April cover with a sculptural Ollie to fakie and the party continues inside as Wes and his best hemmies go loco in Gran Canaria. The yearly T-Eddys continue to shine and shun; Bones penetrates the language barrier in Poland; The Midwest gets tested by Birdhouse and a Skate Loteria photo feature helps you brush up on your Español.
