I pass this spot on the way to The Building in Eindhoven. It's got a bit of traffic usually but having to stop isn't a problem because you can check what's new on the walls. But lately the green wave has you fly by De Berenkuil without making a stop making it harder to check if there are some new pieces on the concrete. Soon I'll just park the car and bring the camera out for some fresh new pics, but we haven't shown these yet. Stay tuned for more.
Knock, knock, can we have your new ad tomorrow? Uhhh............ sure! In order to whip these FATBMX ads up quickly our buddy Mike de Wit, Van Doren Sole award winner, over in Cali came up with this bad boy design. The collage on the left was made from infamous FAT 'zine pictures and features riders like Kai Uwe Lohff, Pete Fastinetto, Nikolai van Zeeland, the De Jong Bros, Maat, Klaus Dyba, RoblaRock, Albert Moonen and Gerrite Koornwinder. The pic on the right will be a bit more recent. Check the first 5 FATBMX ads.....
The following pics I had prepared to go online months ago but they somehow got lost. I found them in the Rebeljam 2010 photo folder so I uploaded them and you see part one right now. In the meantime plenty of new pieces have been made in Eindhoven and it's time for a new visit with the camera when the weather allows. That's how it goes at this legal graffiti spot. If you feel like it, you just use one of the walls and cover up what's already there. No blank walls available.
A few weeks ago we received the official invite for the Edwin Delarosa photo exhibition in New York. Edwin had been taking picture in the Big Apple and was going to put them on display. Official opening night, open bar, you know the deal. We can't just fly to NYC for something like this but asked Ed Pollio to report from the opening night. He sent over a link to the pictures and from the sounds of it a lot of people showed up to check the pics and drink the free drinks. Things got a bit out of hand in the end, the cops came, and shut the place down. But not until people had enjoyed Edwin's

A while ago we received a drawing from Rich which has been on the computer for some time now. I can't recall why we never got it up but I always thought that it wasn't okay yet for the drawing to go online. Today Rich mailed in a few new BMX drawings that he'd made and asked what happened to the old FATBMX one. Hmm, a form of miscommunication I guess. Here are the three illustrations he sent today. We'll dig up the FATBMX one and will show that later.
