All Star Artwalk Recap

Last Saturday we held another Art Walk Event at the shop, unfortunately we got the storm clouds company as well. Thats 2 for 2 in the rain so I guess our 3rd event will be the charm! Overall the event was still pretty cool. We thank everyone who stuck it out in the rain & avoided the LA out of town groupie scene from the All Star Weekend to chill with us. We had free drinks, 2K11, a new limited tee, & a free printed photobooth. Enjoy the pics below, more at our FLICKR.

Motivation | DYNT at La Sierra High School

Here is the video of us speaking at La Sierra High School. We taught a couple motivational workshops at their district conference. When I got the personal invite from the heads to come out and speak, I couldn’t help but say to myself how blessed we really are. It's amazing to be able to do what I want for a living, and on top of that slowly getting recognized for the hard work and effort put in. I couldn’t ask for anything better in my life at the moment. I know we haven’t achieved the level we want to be at in my life yet, but this was a good start.
