The Only Constant is Change

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while. Just been working away in the studio. Thinking about all the changes going on in my life right now. The big change is our move to LA.

Personally, I’ve been wanting to move down there for a few years, mostly because SF has gotten so damn expensive. When I moved here in 1993 I was making $7 an hour at Think Skateboards, living with some co-workers in a crooked old Victorian house in the Western Addition. The rent for my room was $400 a month. Now, 20 years later, I make about $26 an hour and the rent for my little one-bedroom is $2000 a month. So over the last half of my life, my income has increased over 300% (which is awesome!) but rent has increased 500% (sucky!).

So when Joshy told me that REBEL8 needed a bigger warehouse, I knew we couldn’t afford to stay here in San Francisco. A move to LA made sense, to us personally as well as for REBEL8. So Joshy got work and made it happen! And I’m psyched! I will be bouncing back and forth between LA and SF through the summer then officially moving down there in October. Until then I’ll just be sitting at my desk, drawing stuff for you to rock on t-shirts.

And say Hi if you see me riding the SF streets. I ain’t gone yet! Viva San Pancho!
