Special thanks to Choke for featuring a number of KDU artists.
For ages, anyone thats come by the Laundry! studios has asked me about making skate decks for the masses, and usual me I lagged for ages until now. After months of haggling with production, I managed to squeeze these two out as the start of many. The idea was to play off a Day and Nite them loosely, hence the names of the deck, but really just another avenue to bring my signature lettering and characters to life. As usual, the kdu gets it first, I showed a sneak peak a few weeks back and now these are live for mass consumption on the pkin site.
Todd dropped me a line that the KDU x RYZ collabo would be featured in selected Journeys shoe stores, and he wasnt kidding. Front and center as you walk in was the kdu collabo standing strong. At least in the santa monica store, me, anthony faucheux and mago were repped hard as you will see in particular. Trust and thx to the kdu.
OH MY F*cking GOD!! All the doubters can SUCK BLEEP!! The MAG0-Monster has risen.

Special thanks to Martin for covering our friends at Denham in Amsterdam and Marc Ecko’s latest ventures.
The KDU is featured in a six page spread covering the first leg of David Gensler’s world tour. First stops were China, where we met teams at Ogilvy and 361 Sports, before heading to Hong Kong to visit Edison Chen at Clot, Chris at IDN magazine and our good friend Brian at Knowledge. We then jumped to Japan for a few days of shopping and meetings. It was inspiring to talk to Frazier and crew at Nike Japan, before visiting Hiroshi Fujiwara, Hiroki and Matt from Visvim and the team at Swagger and Phenomenon. Stay tuned for the next issue of StreetWear Today for more coverage of the KDU world tour.

Back in October, Fox News host and habitual shit-stirrer, Sean Hannity took L.A. graffiti artist Saber to task over artwork created as part of Organizing for America’s “Health Care Reform Video Challenge.” In a video titled “Saber Speaks,” the L.A. graffiti writer used the American flag as a visual focal point — painting over it in brief time-lapse footage set to the beat of a hospital heart-rate monitor. (The monitor eventually flatlines, much like the current health care debate.) This, of course, provided Hannity with some much-needed filler for his program. Hannity and conservative cockblocker Michelle Malkin immediately expressed outrage. While Hannity appears to drift off into space (no doubt searching for patriotic inner strength from the music of Lee Greenwood), Malkin, of course, steals the show…
