Foundation Walls & Foundations art show blog overload

Image Description Here Image Description Here Foundation Skateboards and Kelly D. Williams got together last friday to launch a new board series at DDR projects in Long Beach, CA. It was a art show featuring the boards Kelly did for us and also showcasing some of his other fine work. But hold up...lets go back a bit. I didn't only go to a art show. I went to the beach also. Lets rewind... Image Description Here Ahhhh beach life. I heard stories about Long Beach being one of the most polluted oceans in the world or united states or something of that sort. Sweet. Well if you can't swim because you'll get sick then you might as well fish! Image Description Here Image Description Here Fishermen, fisherwomen, fisherchildren, fishergrandmotheren, fishergrandfatheren. I'm making up words that end in "en" because fishermen does. Hmmm...that's fine by me. Image Description Here This little guy caught a little guy. Lets eat! Or wait...mmm no you can have it. I'm not trying to eat the most polluted fish in the world really. Image Description Here Oh look its the rail Nick skated on the Transworld cover. Image Description Here Image Description Here Good thing you didn't fall in there little Nicky. Could've been eaten by sharks drawn by a 3rd grader. Image Description Here Skiiiiiiiiiiirt(thats the sound of a car skidding to a stop)...back to the art show. It has begun. Image Description Here Image Description Here Image Description Here Image Description Here Image Description Here Image Description Here Whoa. Those are nice. Image Description Here Let me introduce to you the man behind all this beautiful work. Kelly D. Williams Image Description Here Gareth and local neighbor Matt Bennet showed up. Image Description Here This kid didn't have a graphic on his board so Gareth drew him one... Image Description Here This kid stole one of the boards off the wall and just ran outside. Since we support stealing I figured I'd document this. We might have just given him a board though. Not sure. Image Description Here Oh look who decided to show up. Mr. Bart Jones himself. He will appreciate the Mr. I added in there. Thanks to everyone that came out for the event. Especially Kelly, John @ DDR projects, Matt B, Gareth, Myself, My fans, Kelly's fans, and last but not least the fishermen of Long Beach.
