I did this piece for an upcoming show for Phantom Hand at Hot Diggity for a Philly Food Art Show on July 20. I love the Phantom Hand crew, and I love Hot Diggity, so this was a no brainer. With a tight deadline, I went with a simple 1 color stencil and re-used an old canvas and frame. Came out great in my opinion. I’ve called it “Hot Dog Party USA,” and it’s 8x10 in a painted frame.
I’ve been posting work in progress shots over at Instagram for all of my art. if you’re interested, please follow me @bleedingedges
Do you know anywhere to get Shipwrecked merch?
Just Crucial Response as far as I know
In time for their spring tour, New Jersey’s Altered Boys have recorded 2 new songs which are housed in an cassingle style cover. You may be already familiar with AB from their 7”s on Katorga Works and Deranged Records. They play a style of HC reminiscent of the early 2000 era HC bands like Shark Attack, Knife Fight, Tear It Up, etc… These 2 new songs were recorded after their 2 EPs, and are exclusive to this release. Side A is a mid-paced stomper, side B is a fast thrasher.
Limited to 250 copies on pro duplicated yellow cassettes, with screened shells and wraparound covers . (2 songs)

Corey Webster for Righteous Rides show
Hero Complex has another show, this one with a central theme of transportation in movies. I decided to do a skateboard based on the classic cheesy 80’s movie, THRASHIN’! In the movie, the main character dreams of being a professional skateboarder, and dreams of having his own deck. My idea was to basically make that deck, based on the illustration he shows in the movie, and the Smash Skates logo. Unfortunately I didn’t have access to an 80s shaped deck, but it came out rad. I’d had this idea in the back of my head for a while, and I’m glad this show came along to give me the proper motivation to get it done.
I did all of the artwork without any stencils, but instead cutting out little tape masks (based on my original vector artwork), and positioning them on the board before painting. This allowed for a lot more detail to stay crisp. I also upgraded my tape to the green Frogtape for this.
“Righteous Rides…And the Dudes Who Drive Them!" - A show focusing on prominent characters of fiction and their often creative ways of getting around!
From skateboards to spaceships, anything that rolls, races, flies, or crashes can be counted in this high-throttled, tour de force that celebrates your favorite modes of transportation and the characters who drive them!
