The Work In Progress Show was a huge success and I can't even tell you how stoked I am! My friend Lora wrote up a great article in her blog on FUEL TV. I'm so pumped on it! I am still trying to locate photos from the night and I will do a full story on it when I get everything together. Sorry...

WORK IN PROGRESS 4 is confirmed for August 15, 2008. It is back and man... it's going to be a great one. Celebrating 20+ years of Skateboard Art and the art of the paint pen! We are banding together the all star cast of artists from our previous shows... Ruckas, Cutter, Tim Ramirez, Anika Youcha, Heather Hannan, John Burke, Rich Goodwin, Ryan Haworth, Meagan Schwartz, The Anomaly Boys, Willie McMillon, Evan Grainger and Mike Teirney. The best of the best... it's happening! Each person will have there own personal blank skate deck and they will start creating there piece starting at 6:00 pm. They will have roughly 4 hours to complete their project. There will also be a silent auction going on for the duration of the show with starting bids around $60-$70... so bring your wallets and show these artists some love. We will have food from Back Country Provisions, booze from The Brew Pub and hopefully Red Bull and Vodka, possibly support from my buddy Rhette (Bacardi, Jack Daniels), Mark from the Boardroom is donating some boards, Igneous is donating some longboards, Jeff Grainger is letting me use his shop space for the evening. My friend from Salt Lake (Good Times Tattoos), Thai Lee is going to inject some ink into my good friend Dustin Varga. That has been a Work In Progress for the last 2 years! We will also have a DJ spinning some sort of appropriate beats. I am very excited for this years event and I am looking for the blowout crowds that the event is known for. Come check it out! Get in touch with me at the frameshop or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there out there! Check out workinprogressart.blogspot.com

It has been a great turn out on Thursday Nights at the TST. This place can hold quite a few people, so even when there is 200-250 people in there, it still seems like it's not packed. Thanks to all the ladies that come out in there Summer dresses and also thanks to the dude's for behaving themselves. This night is really for for us because we play two types of music... Country and Western! Naw... we get to play almost whatever we want and what the crowd grooves on. Thanks for the support and we will see you out!
