Oakland, Ca. 2014.
This is J. Otto Seibold. Illustrator of “Olive the other reindeer” creator of  ”Lost Sloth” and more. I met him at this dope little print shop on Telegraph during the Temescal Street Fair. A little more Seuss than Schultz, he’s way more chill than I expected. You can get books, t-shirts, and other merch from him personally at 4770 Telegraph, in Oakland. Shit, you can probably smoke a bowl or two with him too… Cool ass dude.

B Pos x Equipto + Bored Stiff x Opio + Pep Love 

Public Works. San Francisco, Ca. 2014.

This was a dope show. Classic Bay Area underground rap cats. Equipto, P. Whaley, and Big Sean performed a ‘Bored Stiff’ reunion (White Mic was in the back handling merch, I ain’t see Mint Rock, R.I.P Kwanz)!!! E then did a few songs with, then presented Opio. Who then brought out Pep to perform songs off of their “First Light” project, and some of Pep’s new solo shit. At that point I was done. I didn’t stay for Masta Ace. But It ain’t make me none. I got to see a good show, and good folks I ain’t seen in awhile… Plus, Public works don’t be fucking with cameras, So shout out to them for the clearance!

Temescal Street Fair.

Oakland, Ca. 2014.

An annual street fair in the post-gentrified temescal neighborhood in north Oakland. Can’t lie tho, this wasn’t the hipster fair of recent years past. Far more community business participation, more actual community participation.

The Life And Times Of Kevin Weston. (pt. 3)

"And The Children Shall Know His Name"

San Francisco, Ca. 2014.

Many children were in attendance at the memorial service. 

Two groups of kids in particular, The YGB’s, and  the Destiny Arts Dance Company (whom my daughter dances with), both paid tribute to Kev with riveting, energetic performances. It was beautiful to see them come and honor an ancestor.
