Randozzi's Blog — February 2011 Archive Blogger Profile
Photographer, writer, skater, art fan, jazz lover and a creepy dude with a beard Isaac McKay-Randozzi is based out of the San Francisco area. Covering things arty, skatey and arty skatey he likes taking photos of everything and going down to L.A. He likes socks, stickers, walks with his daughter and the time between 2 and 6AM.
The talented man from Ohio has updated his site. Don P. has done a full monty update of his site including some work we probably can't see anywhere else.
I'm not much of a shoe-head but when I heard Lakai was re-doing the Manchester I did do a little dance of joy. I was a fan of the original, having skated several pairs over the years. During a visit to Girl I once considered throwing one of the shoes I was wearing (a black and gum Manchester, of course) at Kelly Bird and Rick Howard after I heard it was being cut from the Lakai catalog. I'm not a violent person but for some reason I took it personal.
Al Davis and his Cincinnati homies (including James Kelch) hit their local curb and street on a warm Winter day.
PNut is an individual like no other. Full of energy and a desire to see others grow and create he smiles at your success as if it were his own. His work has been on every surface you can think of, from walls and canvas to windows and wallets. With clients that vary from commissioned works for private collectors to Vans his work is iconic and recognizable.
Man of mystery, possessor of a mean kickflip, kind host, lover of bears and all around creepy dude, Michael Hsiung makes some great illustrations. He's also been a contributing art reporter to Fecal Face Dot Com and a member of the Human Pyramids Artist Collective. Give his site a good going through, you're sure to find some humor and products of a wonderfully inventive imagination.
Funny how life works sometimes. I was planning on going to the LOVE/HATE art show at Lower Haters in S.F. that includes One Way artist PNut Galinsky but a couple days before the opening, PNut asks if I can be in the show. Luckily I had some stuff from an LA show framed and ready to go. It was also a celebration of the Dwntwn skate shop/Roughneck Hardware relocating their offices into the space.
Stereo and Hi-Fi's new and expanded catalog is up on their site.
The youngsters on Lakai tear this park a new one. The new Lakai season is up on their site as well, damn fine shoes.
