MR. DVICE’s solo exhibit is this Saturday, March 10th, at the Thumbprint Gallery in La Jolla from 5p – 10p. The exhibit is titled No Rules Among Goons and features new work by MR. DVICE – “The ghouls in my head in a world where there are no rules and anything goes.” We were able to sit down with him for a short Q+A about the exhibit.
Tyler Warren is an artist, surfer, shaper, and all around good human. He was kind enough to let James Tull and I spend the day with him last year to document his every move. Our adventure begin with an early morning surf session at Salt Creek in Dana Point, California. We then made a quick stop at his favorite doughnut shop before spending countless hours in his studio looking at artwork both new and old, while discussing life, art, surfing, and the future. Our last stop was his shaping bay at Hobie to see one of his latest creations…an asymmetrical surfboard.

Their will be fresh Mexican food provided by Bull Taco and adult beverages from Pabst Blue Ribbon and Svedka.
Alex Westgate is an amazing designer and illustrator from Toronto, Canada. When not creating new designs, Alex can be found touring with his band, riding his bike, or eating pizza. We instantly became fans of his work when introduced to it on Dribbble. Now for our exclusive interview with Alex Westgate, enjoy.
Green Flash Gallery was packed to the gills last Saturday for “Fall Into December.” The exhibit showcased a collection of North County artwork, curated by Matty Davis. The joint was rocking’ with tunes from Shake Before Us, who fed our ears with sounds that made our feet tap. Miho Gastrotruck was parked out front, pumping out gourmet viddles all night. Oceanside Aleworks provided a keg of spirits, quenching the thirst of the crowd, and keeping the vibe alive. We were able to snap a few photos of the festivities, enjoy.

Their illustrations and designs bring us back to a time when the amount of likes you had on Facebook and number of followers on Twitter didn’t matter. In short, their work puts a smile on our face. Now for our exclusive interview with Jolby. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
