CUSTOM TATTOO'D VANS!

My friend Matt, who is one of the best tattoo artists I know, custom tattoo’s leather vans! I remember seeing a photo of these on his Instagram and thought “I would love a pair one day!” Then maybe 3 months later he hits me up saying he has a pair in my size and what would I like on them? I said anything California related, with a little Flying90 in there, and this is what he came up with! I'm absolutely in love with them! I felt bad for wearing them, but he said to “wear the crap out of them!” So here I am treating them right!

Thanks again Matt, I love them so much!!

Check out Matt’s work! He’s a badass tattoo artist, and an incredible human! Instagram

I had to travel to Monterey, California for the day for my other job, and how could you not want to drive home on Highway 1 through Big Sur?! It’s so beautiful!

I think this is my favorite photo from this set. When you drive over the Bixby Bridge, it seems SO MASSIVE! But in this photo, especially compared to the California Coast, it seems so tiny!

Photographing Around Old Town Lompoc

Today Courtney and I were looking for places around Lompoc to photograph, and we decided to hit Old Town Lompoc, and Surf Beach!

I’ve been trying to mix up my photography a little bit lately. The whole time we were shooting yesterday, I wanted to do it all in black and white! I think they look pretty neat, what about you? Check out the images below!

Lompoc has 40 murals all painted by local artists, depicting scenes of Lompoc’s heritage.

Lompoc was founded in 1874 as a temperance colony, but all the dynamite in the valley and mobs of ax-wielding women couldn’t keep liquor out of the town. A fierce Lompoc housewife named Mrs. J.B. Pierce appointed herself Lompoc’s Carrie Nation and gathered a band of ladies to fight the evils of alcohol. In 1883 they were part of a vigilante committee that strung a rope around the a building, yanked it off its foundation and pulled it for a block - booze spilling out as it went. As years passed, the “wets” grew in numbers and eventually the courts nullified the no-booze restrictions.
