More Jason Jessee

I was with Foxy and we went to Automodown in Watsonville to meet Jason. Automodown was an office, screen printers, mechanic workshop, scrap yard with a rough few ramps fitted in the avaliable space. It was an amazing experience meeting him. I was kinda in awe of his personality, which is unique, comic and honestly excitable.
This is a collage of his office. An eclectic mix of elements of his life. Although there is an Apple computer there, he said its just for show since no one knew how to work it, at which point he showed us what he said was his computer.....it was a sheet of paper with a pen and a hammer on it.

A few sketchy moments

Adequate speed.

The last time I rode to work, I ended up leaving work in an ambulance. It's been over a year since I went back into work, they have let me go back for a few hours a week. So today I rode into work via the cyclepaths and at some point on the journey I managed to do something I haven't done in a year, reach the official adequate speed.

Out with the old, in with the new

After riding a white Fuji Track Pro for over 7 years it developed a crack in the frame. I'm now riding a, as the kids say, a 'murdered out' Moda. A Spinal Tap old guy like me would say the bike is, 'none more black'.

Stickers not tape

I had to put on new bar tape, I never had any insulation tape to hold down the brake cable so I used S&M and United stickers. I knew those sticker sheets would come in handy one day.

Faith in ink

A little bit of ink work and I'm sure depending on your views and values depends on which way you see this cross.

The Insertion

To readdress the artistic balance of subject matter.

Reflecting on skateboarding

A bit of pen work and not a knob or a fanny anywhere.

Skateboard benches

Old skateboards, new benches.

Waiting for paint to dry

If you ever looked at my instagram thing then you'd have noticed the two skateboard benches that I have made. I started painting them and had to wait for the masked off areas to dry, so, I drew this while waiting. It made me think about the life drawing classes that I did a few years ago. The tutor said I wasn't quick or loose enough to get a sence of figure, to help me, 'wrestle' with the easel, he gave me a large graphite stick and 15 minutes to draw each pose. 15 minutes later......... This image is fictional
, any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.

As for the caption, I'm not totally sure but I think it may be a quote from Kurt Cobain?

Bike storeage

This is my bike store under my stairs. It's got a bit of a theme going on. Cowbell lightpull and painted walls. The bunting was taken from when the Tour was in Yorkshire.

Andy Howell in my kitchen

When I was in Philly I managed to purchased these two signed prints, 'Feed The Family' and 'Choice Cuts' by Andy Howell, whose skate, oversized, bold graphics made me wish I could paint or draw with such a unique style. After a decade I eventually hung them in a suitable place. I still can't paint or draw with any style.

Ed the Templeton

In early 2001 I went and stayed with Robbie Reid in Philadelphia. He knew there was an Ed Templeton show on, I had always liked Ed for his 'pervy' photographs and Toy Machine graphics and adverts. When we got to the gallery the show had finished but the lady was kind enough to give me this show poster.
Many years later Sandycarson.com went to a show of Ed and his wife, Sandy got me a show poster, signed, with a personal drawing on it.

I'm not into that religion thing

Despite what this painting says, I think everything has to start at the start.

A Room With No Windows

I recently read Scott Hobbs Bourne novel, (A Room With No Windows). The opening pages have a quote from probably the most sold novel, The Bible. This painting was inspired by that quote, 'The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has never overcome it.' This was written by a bloke called John.

Just when you thought it was safe to be on the interweb, i return. It takes me a while to work computers out. How knows i may disappear again. I hope i can work out how to put photos up and my general nonsense. No need for any comments, my ideas aren't worth your energy.
