Grab On grips had some unique advertisements going on in the early eighties. The BMX magazine ads showed a comic style ad about the Grab On kid. Going by the drawing style we believe it was Bob Haro who did these comics. Enjoy the flashback.
Here's a pretty cool QuickTime VR movie of a sprocket I made (the Simple Bikes Stockholm sprocket).
If you click and drag up/down you'll see it from different angles.
Quicktime is required to view the movie... (www.quicktime.com)
The FATBMX Comic and Art section is for the creative people out there. If you've got something to contribute, please send it in. Preferably BMX related but we also post other art such as these pieces from De Berekuil in Eindhoven, a popular graffity spot.
The pieces at legal graffiti spot "De Berenkuil" in Eindhoven keep changing. When driving by I'm trying to spot the new stuff but I never have a camera with me or time to stop. That's why I made the trip down there by bike and put the camera in the backpack.
Here's part one of the graffiti art. More to follow.
Another art exhibition over in Japan.
Yasu Takeo sent over the info and we're leaving his E-mail address this time as I'm sure you would get lost finding the place in the streets of Tokyo.
Here's what we understood:
If you happen to be in Tokyo in the next two weeks you might want to look for the Ruby Room. Yasuyuki Takeo sent in the following exhibition info:GreenG's photo exhibition "Hon-po" (means flee-wheeling) is held at Ruby Room, Dougenzaka, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan from Feb 7th to Feb 28th. The photos are exhibited every Monday during February, (Feb 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th ) from 7pm to 1am.
We received this from one of our favorite artists. In fact, we've got one of his paintings on the wall here.........
