Ludwig Van “Submission Series”.

August 10, 2014

For the grappling nerd in all of us – I’m proud to reintroduce the “Submission Series” prints and t-shirts! INspired by my passion for all things wrestling/grappling/jiu-jitsu/judo – what you see here is based on my experience over the many years on the mat. “Have fun with it!”. The prints are 13″ x 19″ GiclĂ©e prints printed on museum quality archival paper and this is the second edition (of 25). But what about the t-shirts! GET THEM HERE direct from our partnership with long-time cohorts Digital Gravel. Digital Gravel has been bringing you fresh new gear since the late 90′s! and they are the proverbial “OG’s” in the game. If you OR somebody you know is a #Jiu-Jitsu nerd – DON’T SLEEP! They will not last for long!

The holy grail of Vintage.

April 30, 2013

This is Greg, he’s kind of underground. He knows and does vintage better than most and he certainly has more grade-A vintage than anyone else. Chances are, the vintage-inspired trends that have caught on in the last 10-years and beyond have started with him and his web-store VINTAGE TRENDS. While the site may be a bit antiquated, don’t let that fool you. Take a look around, do a little digging…he’s the first one doing on-line vintage, longer than anyone else, and besides the fact that he’s too busy ‘picking’ the good stuff for you to buy than making things look pretty. The ‘Nasty Gals’ of the world all took cues from Vintage Trends. The web-site is a no-frills, no-hype portal into a vintage goldmine that specializes in Military and Tactical. It’s no bullshit, just a good, insanely deep selection of vintage. That authentic WWII M-65 or MA1, or vintage Stadium Jacket…Greg has them all in every size, in all colors (notice the bails of unpacked goods in photo)….for VERY reasonable prices, take my word for it. Go to Vintage Trends, do a little digging – if you like vintage you’ll find what you’re looking for, and the price you like.

For Boku.

Congratulations to Kotetsu “No Face” Boku on becoming the first ONE FC Lightweight Champ. Boku is one my favorite fighters, but more importantly he showed genuine hospitality by welcoming me into the Krazy Bee (Killer Bee) gym to train in 2008 when I was in Japan. A really nice guy. I’m really busy at this point in time and I don’t usually do fighter based graphics for no reason, but I wanted to make a cool poster and t-shirt graphic for this occasion and for this fighter. So here’s to you Boku! – OMEDETOO GOZAIMASU!

A fan of Camo.

Happy Labor Day

This needs to be watched. You can’t make this sh*t up.

You’re welcome Mr. Douglas

March 30, 2011

It’s always nice when a person takes the time to write you a thank you letter. No less when that person is an iconic Hollywood actor. Such class and humility. We know that most celebrities can’t be bothered with this kind of stuff. I’d say that’s what separates Mr. Kirk Douglas from his contemporaries  – a real class act.

Year that was.

Year in review. A few of my favorite ads over the last couple of years from the LUDWIG that was…looking forward to the new chapter but reflecting on the old testament.
