Took a quick trip down the coast to La Jolla & the San Diego bay. Snapped off a few shots along the way. Also stumbled upon a pretty wild sea cave.
Hopped on a plane and shot over to the airport in the sky. A secluded airport right in the middle of Santa Catalina island at 3,000ft. We left LA in the afternoon and caught sunset right on the strip. I snapped off a few shots for Opel. A new camping bag that separates your clean and dirty clothes all in one divided bag. Pro tip, they work great as a pillow as well when you forgot yours at home.
Escaping to Palm Springs is never a bad idea. Spent a little time shooting by the pool, date palm groves, and down a few back roads. Ran up and down some dirt roads by the windmills and down to a river in the middle of the desert.
We took a trip through the Mojave Desert. We took a swing at navigating the Mojave road. It was a total blast.
We all hopped in the van and headed out to Pismo Beach to rip around on the beach. It was a total blast, we almost lost the van to the tide, and taught a few ladies how to ride dirt bikes. We also did some wheelies and learned that two strokes are sometimes take more than a few kicks to start.
A quick weekend up to the Killer Kern river to do a little camping. After waking up on of top of a mountain that the stock FX4 had no business being on, the brakes went out. We creeped it down the mountain in 4 low and dropped it at the shop. Then hopped in a little rental car and made out way to a fun spot tucked in the mountains of Ojai.
Bespoke approached us to produce an authentic leather accessory. We designed, sourced, created packaging, and produced the keychain. We also produced a shoot with local artist and delivered to create media product support.
The limited edition military inspired keychain was designed to look as good as it is functional. This go ‘round with Bespoke Post, we combined classic American aesthetics with a healthy dose of old school craftsmanship to end up with something truly unique.
To get there we enlisted Remy Chwae, one of the few remaining practitioners of the meticulous, unmistakable art of sign painting. We took her hand-painted design, digitized it, and embossed it on bovine leather that should last you a lifetime.
Fitted with a gloss-black "clash hook", a hook originally designed for military use. It features a spring-loaded gate and mounting holes. On the other end the keychain features a black flat split keyring.
Our favorite part is the 100% bovine leather section. Embossed on both sides with hand painted artwork by LA sign painter Remy Chwae.
