If you’re in Osaka between now and Feb 20, 2017, make sure to stop by the TokyoFunks / PinkPixiePrincess popup shop at Excube Gallery. These Japanese designers create a unique mashup of old school West Coast skater culture (Mark Gonzales/Santa Cruz Skateboards) X Japanese pastel subcultures (Fairy Kei/Cult Party).

16 year ago, I was at a hospital in Nowhere, Arizona...
After 6 ½ hours, I managed to bring forth this not-so-tiny little life. 7 lbs 10 oz, 22 ½ inches long, and a healthy set of lungs.
That beautiful little girl, with the jet black hair, and the sweet baby smell…
Is now taller than me.
Happy birthday @rxtrogade
Well … it’s ugly. But it was out of the question that I draw nothing like Valentine’s Day. I’ll see if I can do it every day. It is a matter of pride.
I love when Beka blushes. So the first confession, I imagine it must be a great pleasure!
Sometimes I sit there,
and my skin caves in like walls,
I feel my skin shudder around me,
and collapse on what some call a soft center,
but I call an open space,
the shell being it’s shelter.
I can feel the flood begin,
as the dam breaks,
and water flows and hits my cheeks,
and my arms crush in, too,
arching over me like it’s protecting me,
when it’s only seconds from falling, too.
I can feel the panic of every villager,
running and screaming,
looking for somewhere to hide,
knowing damn well that the tide,
has just started rolling in,
and whatever they bunker underneath,
will collapse just like the rest of me.
I can hear the burning of wood and the crumbling of stone,
hearing an empire fall,
as I make a whimper,
the sound of an empress’s woes.
