Dabs & Myla’s curated show at Thinkspace next month is shaping up really well from all accounts. Elliot Francis Stewart, Misery and I are all in this so if you’re a New Zealander in LA, go along and know that some of your country’s own are represented! There’s been a bunch of little features on Juxtapoz during the build up to the show, here’s my favourite quote from mine:
“Ever picked up a hitch hiker?… Have you ever been a hitchhiker?
Never really picked many up but as a teenager I hitched everywhere. I didn’t get my drivers license until I was like 25 or something so to get beyond the city limits really depended on it. Actually funny story, the first time I went hitchhiking I was 3. My dad thought it would be a good father/son bonding experience and hitched with me from Auckland to Palmerston Nth. I got really car sick after eating bananas and vomited banana spew all over some guy with 3 missing fingers hands. The picture of the banana spew dripping from his nubs still flashes in my mind whenever I eat bananas to this day. It was a bad banana experience.”
