Another one of my personal favourite projects. Good size, fun one, huge ...and just a cool story.
Long story short, I spoke to Mike a good year or 2 before the project actually came together. It was one of those, “next time you're in America” things. So, the fair enough, next time I was in America we made it happen. It just so happened that it aligned with International Fight week in Las Vegas (Masvidal vs Askren card) so we met there for 4 days of madness before started in SD.
The front was never apart of the plan (will get to this) so we did the side, designed a tee shirt and threw a launch party to boot. Was absolutely awesome and the best time. From there I went to Mexico and Colombia for a holiday.
Fast forward a few weeks, Mike had decided to open a new store in Pacific Beach (still in SD, but on the other side of the city) and he asked if I were interested in doing a little feature wall. Of course.
That said, during this time, I had met my new girlfriend, and she came across from Spain to meet me in America before I went back home to Australia. (FYI: We met at the start of my trip while I was in Berlin and I went to chase her in Spain after ...anyways) as fate would have it, my finger got infected by some freak accident so we bailed to Mexico for a few days before actually being able to start. During this time Mike decided he wanted to do the front as well.
So yeah, wasn’t really short …but was a cool story (at least for me). Thanks again for everything my brother.
