TAC – My Little Broham

I had a couple small sizes of the Squid shirt and the Thumb TAC, literally the last ones, and i figured who better to wear them than my little brother. Similar to me, he is a real piece of work, see what i mean?

TAC – Bloggin’ like Craaaazay.

9 more blogs and we’ll have posted 3 hundy, pretty cool! One of my favorite bands, Thrice, has announced a farwell tour. Best part about that, is they are playing a gig at the Catalyst here in Santa Cruz. Seen em play there before, they are really good. Check out this newer video they did for Red Bull:

Raddest day yet


TAC – Hats and Paint.

If you are an artist, or try to be like me, you probably have a little routine, or maybe just a certain mood you have to be in to draw. For me, one of my favorite things to do on the weekends, is to wake up, get some coffee, crank the tunes, and draw. Sometimes, the day will literally fly by, all of a sudden its almost dark, and ive been sitting around drawing all day. If I ended up with something cool, I dont mind, but typically, i like to be more active, so i feel a bit unproductive.

Anyways, this weekend, I not only broke out for my first very unsuccessful surf session, and I drew a few hats, stoked on the turn out, take a look. Ill have these hats up for sale as soon as I take some good photos…

Still summer down here

Not keen with black flag songs (unless ”Wasted” which is rad), but other than that…agreed

Honesty –



Ive been trying to meet up with Keith “MONIKAPE” Squires for awhile now. He had hit me up and wanted to get some TAC support, and we were quick to oblige. Keith and I have been friends for years, and ive always been super stoked on his progression with his music. Just last week he played a gig with his good buddy and recent “X Factor” wonder boy Chris Rene, I was more than pumped to get the MONIKAPE in a TAC shirt for the show, check him out in his Royal Chomper shirt! YEW!, YEA MONIKAPE!!
