CHiPs x AKIRA : Just a Bunch of Bike Punks, Sir…!

rbst_chips_akira_x_640

I grew up watching CHiPs, to the point of wanting to be CHP, like Ponch. My favorite scenes from Akira were during the Pills (Capsules) vs Clowns fight. I wanted to be just like Kaneda.

Truth is, I’d rather be a bike punk…

For Thumbprint Gallery’s Splice mashup art show.

I used to head there in the morning pretending to go to a.m. classes I’d dropped.

It’s publication selection was vast, and I bought the bulk of my graff zines there. On particularly lonely days, I’d spend hours at the La Jolla location listening to baroque classical compilations in the back room and reading up on design. I even applied to work there as the display artist (didn’t get hired because I couldn’t cut a circle out of foamcore).

Then, in 2006, it closed down (in the US, anyway).
