Looks like someone is bootlegging Toy Machine in Italy. Our bloodsucking lawyers are all over it. The day of the opening there will be a skate jam for the community.

Deanna 'posed' me for a portrait. What an honor being shot by the master.

Deanna shot me shredding the ramp. But someone else got a better shot of my 'stunt,' a taildrop from the gaurd rail.

Hello Ed,
I saw your "The Cementary..." in Gent, Belgium, wich was one of the best Ex I saw, and after I got some travelling inspiration here, I will go to sardegna this summer, too and of course see the exhibtion there.

Am I already stalking or still in the normal parameters of loyal pawnism?
P.S. I heard Sardegna is a snake-packed Island, i´m a grown up man, but no snakes on the plane for me please.
Posted By: Visitorx on August 1st, 2010 at 04:18AM PST
Actually there are no venomous snakes on Sardegna. I didn't see any snakes or even hear that there are a lot here. There are barely any animals. Go to Cala Gonone, and check out the Blue Marino caves!
Posted By: ed on August 1st, 2010 at 04:48AM PST
looks like fun. ill get there
Posted By: vinny on August 1st, 2010 at 05:11AM PST
I definitely will. The Shots were amazing! Thanx, Ed
Posted By: Visitorx on August 1st, 2010 at 05:19AM PST
fantastic post! Ed, do you plan out what you write in the word bubbles, or is it stream of consciousness?
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on August 1st, 2010 at 09:23AM PST
Oranges & bananas are my favorite. Always gotta have nanas, orange tree in the backyard. Tons of different oranges.

I want that poster.

The new Warhol? Holy shit, instead of Chelsea Girls, you have Chelsea Boys. All of us pawns can be your girls. Weird. I bet they have no idea you have a following of teenage boys, some older.

Are those the heads from your other show?

You got to skate a mini-ramp with someone else's board? By yourself? Odd.

I want you to draw that on my arm but with a needle & some ink.

Beautiful girls.

That drawing of Kevin is spot on. What does one have to do to peak into that black book?

What a lovely Italian(?) women in that photo. Dig the fro.

Looks like we missed out again on some good art & times.

Where did those shirts come from? Those are awesome.

Oh, Elke...

Oh, & so I guess I never looked thoroughly through your Tiny Vices profile, but God damn are you a great photographer... All beautiful.
Posted By: Jacob on August 1st, 2010 at 11:55AM PST
Nice show, Ed. Congrats
Posted By: Brian on August 1st, 2010 at 12:57PM PST
I went into Mothers the other day in HB and there's a shake named after you, the Ed, pretty good =)
Posted By: allison on August 1st, 2010 at 03:42PM PST
Ed, you might as well be sponsored by Mother's.
Posted By: Jacob on August 1st, 2010 at 03:46PM PST
Sweet show. I wish I could have been there.

You should get temp-ster tattooed across you knuckles. jk.

Yum, bananas and oranges.

We need an international sock team for all these euro pawns.

Really like the idea of having the art in 3D making the viewer part of the art almost. Ed your art has really come a long really well I'm glad to see that you get to show case that. Ever thought of making a dvd about this im sure other people besides myself would like to see it.

I saw "Il cimitero della ragione" at Man in Nuoro.

Amazing shots!
Incredibles introspective moods in any picture. ED you are great artist.

Good Luck mate!
