Bootleg Popeye

Digging for memorabilia and products from yesteryear is something I love to do. Whether I am at a garage sale, flea markets or on Ebay. I’m almost always drawn to the type of crap that captures the illustrative look and feel of the 50’s or early 60’s and 70's typography ….I love anything with a cartoon art vibe…jazz album covers, shot glasses, books, figurines….you name it! Anyway I struck gold on this one, a vintage 90's Popeye and Betty Boop "Thug Out" tee. What else can I say? Check out the pics for yourself.

Good Grits in SATX

Here is a few pics from my recent travels to San Antonio, During this trip I was able to relax and catch up with some friends and family. While on the Riverwalk, one of my good friends got us to try a place called Boudro's on the Riverwalk. And all I got to say, is that you really have to try to the grits. Pepper Jack Grits to be exact.

It won't be long but I will back up to do more soon. So my peeps SA holla at me!

Two Cent Thursdays

We settle for something not quite right, or an outfit that isn’t our best look, or a job that doesn’t quite maximize our talents. We settle for relationships that don’t give us joy, or a website that’s, “good enough.”

The only way to get mediocre is one step at a time.

You don’t have to settle. It’s a choice you get to make every day.

Our Gang

Over the last month or two we've been running around so much that by the time you stop to take a breather you realize that a whole lot has happened. For example just found this weekend that the playoffs were going on. (To some that would be blasphemy.) Anyhow here some pics of some of the Grits Gang and extended family.

Shaun (Caughtin Customs) is always willing to give the best photos. he is almost animated as Busta Rhymes.

Here's Chelsea,The Queen bee Caughtin Customs holdin it down. She didnt want me to take but I snuck this shot in. HA!!

One of good friends, Robert Hodge a dope artist wearing vintage Grits. So whenever I can save up some money or be willing to slave at his studio for some sweat equity I try to get a new art piece. If he looks familiar, you may remember him from such videos as The Cooler than Average. Check it out here.

Grant (Simply Complicated) is always giving everyone the salute.

Ray (Simply Complicated) always pushing SC. #texasgrind

I guess everyone is tired of having a camera shoved in their face. Mike (Remixlabel), Mean Muggin.

Who's Mad

I love books and I love reading and collecting books. Especially Mad and Cracked magazines. While most young boys started drawing because of comics, I started because Mad and Cracked. As a kid, I would read it from cover to cover and try to imitate the drawings of Don Martin, Jack Davis, Al Jaffe and so much more. The contents was always intoxicating and subversive. It had no respect for anybody or anything- including itself.

So when I just scored a good deal of some magazines this weekend you can see why "I'm good." Now I just need the MAD board game.
