1950’s Motocycle Poster Art

These classic motorcycle designs scream speed. They’re so direct and in your face you can’t help but pay attention. They seem to suck me in and inspire and endless dirt of road of possibilities. I love the way the artist only use a few colors to catch the audiences imagination. The color theory is so fascinating to me. I love how simple and yet so bold the design and layout is. The font is always so bold and simple yet catchy and sophisticated. This makes me wanna go out and buy a motorcycle right now and hit the open road. I know Hunter would appreciate these posters. Hi-five to riding motorbikes.Manx Grand PrixTwin and Triple MotorCycle Cop Isle of Man TT Motor Races Thrills and Spills Motorcycle Races Norton Motorcycle

We dig deep reaching profound connections within us, touching our ancestral roots. “SIMPLY REAL”, we touch the sources of life directly, unshielded from nature’s truths. Intimate and personal, we experience relationship building with the foundational essence of our existence.

Visiting educators, campers, and family members repeatedly and independently have exclaimed excitedly while participating in our programs, “You guys really do it!”

Westside Tattoo – Graffiti

Today I was over at Westside Tattoo checking out their new wall. Normally the North wall is filled from the sidewalk to the sky with tags from various artists in town. But this time around they decided to mix it up a bit. Tattoo/graffit artist Drake is the man with the plan. He’s the mastermind behind the layout of Westside’s great murals and graffiti. He told me that he was just looking for something different other than your typical street tag. Perhaps the tags just don’t give enough freedom to the artist to truly express his/her talent behind the can. These works of art clearly speak for themselves. They’re full of life and energy and an overwhelming amount of energy. Well played sir…

Hi-five to Artist “JR”

This blog is dedicated to world renowned artist “JR”. He was given the Ted Award a couple years ago for his dedication to collective growth. We are humans, and we are beings. Sometimes the human within us gets in the way of the being that binds us. “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference”. I am not a religious man but I do value this idea above everything. We are all aware of how hateful the world can be. It’s very easy to get overwhelmed by the injustices that encompass our lives on a daily basis because sometimes it seems pointless. However I think it’s very important to do what you can to express your optimism for the world and encourage others to do the same. Start in your community, your neighborhood, your household, start with yourself. JR has a very unique approach at the way he expresses his passion for people. He might not be feeding world hunger or finding a cure for cancer but he is very good at putting a smile on peoples face. And sometimes a smile is enough to keep you going. Here’s to you JR. Thanks for the inspiration.  JR Artist 1 JR Artist 2 JR Artist 3 JR Artist 4 JR Artist 5 JR Artist 6 JR Artist 7

Divine Purpose

“You are here to allow the divine purpose of the universe to unfold”. That’s how important you are – Eckhart Tolle

To me this quote explains life down to it’s core roots. The life we live is full of choices; some good, some bad but each it’s own. No matter what choices we make, we never quite deviate to far off the spiral. There is a rhythm at which every living entity vibrates in. Not to say that our lives are predestined but I personally can’t help but feel like some unknown force keeps me grounded. It makes sure I don’t wander too far off the path. Perhaps there is purpose for my life beyond my daily activities.

Hi-five to garage sales

When I was a kid, every summer my grandma would take all five of us grand kids out garage sale’n. We loved it, what’s more fun that ravaging through people old smelly shit that they no longer want. You had to get there early though because if you got there after 10am all the good stuff was gone and you were left with used underwear and ties your grandfather wouldn’t even wear. I remember one time my brother walked up to a garage sale (he was probably 7 or 8) and said “Man, look at all this junk”. Right in front of the home owner. I’m sure my grandma was pretty embarrassed but you couldn’t help but laugh. Good times.
