skate sticker

Whatever Forever Skateboarding Ghost Stickers are still available at my store! The link is in my description and they’re $3 including shipping if you live in the U.S. (if you live outside the U.S. and really want one message me and I’ll look up how much more it will cost). Profit from purchases goes toward art supplies and to maintain the store so I can make more rad things for you guys soon!

Each purchase comes with a hand written thank you note and for the month of November anyone who messages me a screenshot or photo of their confirmation page will receive a shoutout to 3.5K at the end of the month!

Thank you all so much for the support I’ve already received, it means a lot 😊👻🍂

A quick trade secret you won’t learn in most programs in school:

So your Cable management is perfect. You are on top of load ins and outs. You know gear like the back of your hand. And, you are ready to strike out on the road. Problem is, who has the cash, strength and cargo space for the massive road boxes that take a hearse and two burly dudes with monosylable names to lug around?

Well, if your “Tour truck” consists of a well used Subaru hatchback held together with skate company stickers or a Fiat Panda that can barely fit the driver much less gear, here is the way you should haul cable:

The lowly but mighty 5-gallon bucket.

They are cheap (this one coming from a hardware mega store that happens to be of the orange variety, but any plastic 5-gallon bucket will do). They are easy to move. They are easy to stack. And, if you wrap your cable correct, you can get sixteen 25-foot cables per bucket. And, this method will keep each cable well coiled and naturally divided because they are stacked one on top of the other, and won’t side and tangle like a poorly loaded road box. And, it is waterproof!

Now, venues with standing cabinets and well organized cages won’t find this useful. But if you have a show that moves a lot, or you are a musician with a bunch of cable but no cheap and space effective solution to throw in the Kia, this is perfect. I have been doing this for about 7 years, and it is the perfect way to manage personal gear. And, I can store my approximate 1,500ft of personal cable in the corner of the closet!
