Connect Skate: Editorial: Street League

connectskate:

By Luc Nakashoji

Started in 2010, Street League was started by Rob Dyrdek. Now, everyone has their opinion on Dyrdek and whether he’s still legit or not, but we’ll leave that out in this article. It was supposed to “revolutionize skate competition”, implementing an instant scoring system where…

Oh hey, I wrote a little editorial for the Connect Skate site about Street League.

Life Updates 2013.

Hey, so it’s been a while, but here’s the gist of what’s going on.

1. I live with Caryne now (since November). It rules. She’s rad.

2. Our weddings plans are starting to come together…slowly.

3. Seems like as soon as skateboarding season hit, I stopped drawing/arting almost entirely. Last thing I did was probably that painting (probably my only painting of 2013?). I have this problem of just getting too into certain things at a time…it’s probably what’s stopping me from being particularly good at any one thing.

4. Connect Skate is doing pretty alright. Got a team of homies repping and had some pretty decent-sized orders of griptape from Top and Antique. Working on getting a website with a store up and running soon too! That’s all keeping me busy, that’s for sure.

5. I’m gonna be a godfather. Didn’t see it coming, but I’m psyched to get to spoil a kid! At least until we have our own.

6. We are continuing to save up money to buy a house! That’s exciting. We’re starting to have too much stuff for just an apartment!

7. I had a long day of skating in Toronto last weekend with some close friends and some of the Antique dudes and it was super fun! Hadn’t had a day out like that in a long time! It was kind of nice to not have to decide where we’re going or film or anything. Plus those dudes are hilarious.

8. I’m sorry this was completely disorganized.

9. Tomorrow is Star Wars Day…I kind of want another Star Wars tattoo…but that would be frivolous spending…sort of.

Skate Life. 12” x 16” acrylic paint on canvas.
I think that I’m mostly happy with this one because I took my time with it. It took three attempts to get the skin tone right (I’m also horribly out of practice) and I took the time to do some research for the rest of it.

Started painting again too. I’m thinking I will aggregate stuff from my life here…more of a personal blog, versus the art only stuff at the new one. View high resolution

Connect Skate: Top 5 with Jordan Wells

If you don’t know Jordan Wells, here’s what you need to know:

He shreds transition, has hair longer than his girlfriend, and loves the Bones Brigade. We did a Top 5 with him based on those aspects via text message.

Top 5 reasons to have rails on your board

  1. Smith grinds
  2. Feeble grinds

Did a short little Top 5 with the homie Wells.

As per request I made a tutorial on how I draw hands, check it out here:
http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Hands-tutorial-358027254

Drawing hands is the bane of my existence!

I guess I’m changing my tumblr? Haven’t really decided on all that. Think that may become all art stuff and this will remain a personal one.
