My suite had a dishwasher. I could never imagine cleaning my own dishes in a hotel. Or even loading the dishwasher for that matter.
It also had a smoking Giant.
Very suprised to see some big expensive books in the room too. I made it through about 10,000 years of art. I’ll save the rest for my next trip.
Side painting is the shit.
And after the show I got upgraded again. It doesn’t get much better than this in Las Vegas. Thanks Cosmopolitan!

I was at the MAGIC trade show in Vegas yesterday with Joshy, Doug and Ramon. It was hot outside!
I haven’t been to MAGIC in years because it’s always pretty depressing. I always end up seeing graphics produced by copycat brands and it breaks my heart every time. And I can’t really get mad at the copycat brands. There will always be greedy motherfuckers out there that just want the quick buck. I don’t think that will ever stop. It’s the artists that work for these lowlifes that really bum me out. They are making a living copying my personal style. I just think that’s so shameful. So disrespectful. I’ve been dealing with biters for over 20 years and it still bums me out.
And I don’t feel like I can do much about it. But you can. If you go to a store that sells rip-offs, tell the employees about it and ask them to look at REBEL8. If they hear about it enough, they will tell their managers about us. If the managers hear about us enough they will ask their distributors about us. If their distributors hear enough about us, they will try to get REBEL8 in their stores. It’s as simple as that.
And again, thanks for all your support over the 8 years REBEL8 has been around. You have helped our little company grow steadily through some of the worst economic times in American history. We couldn’t be more thankful. For real.
Now back to the drawings…

But I can’t. Forgot my Canon cord to load some photos to my laptop to blog. Picture me in Vegas. Picture me rollin’.

Today I visited a really cool store called Unionville. They carry the leaders in high-end denim (Iron Heart, Mister Freedom, etc.), but also make their own garments right in the back of the shop. Japanese selvedge, designed, cut and sewn in Stockholm. Thanks Douglas.
I hate toys, but I really liked this guy.
Unionville’s sister store Sivletto proudly carries REBEL8.
On the very same block I saw the coolest scooter throttle grip ever. Those indeed are some Daisy Dukes.
Popped into a graffiti shop called Curb Servin and met Christian.
Scoped some dust tags.
This is street art.
Then I ate here. BOMB.
About to fly to Vegas before I turn right back around to Sweden. Hope to see you at Magic!
