JEDIDIAH



CALVIN WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE BEEN INVITED TO VISIT JEDIDIAH, ONE OF THE MOST PROGRESSIVE CLOTHING COMPANIES OPERATING TODAY. HE WAS HAPPY TO HAVE BEEN PUT IN TOUCH WITH A COMPANY THAT HAS SUCH A BIG VISION & A HEART FOR OTHERS. THEY HAVE AN AMAZING WEBSITE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO HAVE A BIT OF INSIGHT TO SOME OF THE GREAT THINGS THEY STAND FOR & THE CAUSES THEY ARE BACKING. THIS IS DEFINITELY A COMPANY MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

DANE REYNOLDS

A FEW WEEKS BACK, ANDREW DOHENY WAS INVITED ON A TRIP BY DANE TO SURF AND FILM IN NICARAGUA. TURNING UP TO THE AIRPORT WEARING A KID CREATURE SHIRT, DROID CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF DANE INSTANTLY. THIS WAS THE START OF IT ALL.  VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW THIS, BUT DANE HAS A GROWING OBSESSION WITH DRAWING KID LIKE ART, SIMILAR TO THE WORK CAL DOES. AS THE WEEK PROGRESSED, SO DID THE CONVERSATION REGARDING KID CREATURE, CAL, AND ALL THAT'S BEHIND HIS ART. INTERESTED, INTRIGUED, AND JUST SIMPLY INTO IT, DANE QUICKLY BECAME A HUGE FAN OF CALS. ITS IRONIC TO THINK THAT CAL'S HERO HAS NOW BECOME HIS FRIEND, AND WHO CAL LOOKED UP TO, HE NOW SEES EYE TO EYE WITH, BUT AS I STATED IN A PRIOR POST, THE ONLY THING COOLER THAN MEETING YOUR HERO, IS FINDING OUT THAT HE IS SOMEONE WORTH FOLLOWING. DANE HAS A WAY OF MAKING PEOPLE FEEL THIS WAY, ITS NOT ONLY HIS SURFING THAT CAUSES YOU TO STRIVE FOR MORE, BUT HIS HEART FOR OTHERS THAT MAKES YOU REALIZE WHY YOU DO IT. SHORTLY AFTER, DROID WENT ON ANOTHER TRIP WITH DANE TO FIND MORE WAVES IN A FAR OFF LAND, BUT THIS TIME WE SNUCK A FEW SHIRTS IN DROIDS BAG FOR DANE. CAL STAYED IN CONTACT WITH DANE SINCE THAT TRIP, AND THE TWO TEND TO HANG OUT WHEN TIME PERMITS IT, BUT AS ONE SURFER TRAVELS THE WORLD, AND THE ANOTHER WORKS HIS WAY THROUGH SCHOOL, BOTH CAL AND DANE CONTINUE TO PAINT THE BLANK CANVIS OF THEIR FRIENDSHIP WITH CREATURES ONLY A KID CAN CREATE.

INTO THE WIND


KID CREATURE'S "THE TOOTH" COMES TO LIFE, AS STEVE
NASH TELLS THE WORLD ABOUT HIS NEW DOCUMENTARY
FILM, TITLED "INTO THE WIND." ITS RAD TO SEE HOW STEVE
INTERACTED WITH CAL, HE DIDN'T HAVE TO SPEND HIS TIME
TALKING ABOUT THINGS AN 11YR OLD FINDS INTRIGUING,
BUT YET STILL DID. HE DIDN'T HAVE TO ENCOURAGE HIM
TO FOLLOW HIS DREAMS, BUT YET HE STILL DID, AND HE
DEFINITELY DOESNT HAVE TO SUPPORT CALVIN AND WEAR
HIS SHIRTS ON TV, BUT YET HE STILL DOES. SOME
PEOPLE DONT HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING, FOR OTHERS TO
KNOW WHAT THEIR ABOUT. THEY JUST LIVE IT THROUGH
THEIR ACTIONS, AND IN THIS CASE THEY SPEAK LOUDER
THAN WORDS. VISIT THE STORE LINK ABOVE TO GET A
SHIRT OF YOUR OWN, AND FOR MORE INFO REGARDING
"INTO THE WIND" CLICK HERE. THANKS - KID CREATURE.

WEEKEND AWAY







OVER THE COURSE OF THIS WEEKEND, CAL MANAGED TO ACCOMPLISH QUITE A BIT. BETWEEN DROPPING AN ORDER OF KID CREATURE SHIRTS OFF TO DANE REYNOLDS AT THE LOWERS PRO, SURFING A FEW SPOTS  IN SAN DIEGO, HAVING DINNER AND A SLEEP AT THE SAN ELIJO CAMPGROUNDS, WRESTLING A BREAKFAST AT THE POTATO SHACK IN ENCINITAS "WORLDS LARGEST PANCAKES", A MED STOP AT THE DRIVE UP WINDOW, AND MORE SNACKS ON THE ROAD THAN ONE KID COULD
HANDLE, I'D SAY IT WAS A TRIP WORTH TAKING. SO IF YOUR EVER DOWN IN SAN DIEGO, AND ARE IN SEARCH FOR SOMETHING TO DO, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS OFF YOUR LIST TO GUARANTEE YOUR WEEKEND, WELL WORTH ITS WHILE.
1. BLACKS
2. SAN ELIJO CAMP GROUNDS
3. POTATO SHACK
4. RAEN
5. GREEN FLASH

STOKED AND BROKE





ITS ALWAYS RAD TO SEE WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO, WHAT YOU CANT GO WITH OUT, AND WHAT YOU SPEND THE MAJORITY OF YOUR TIME DOING, BLOWN UP ON THE BIG SCREEN. SURFING HAS A ADDICTIVE QUALITY, REGARDLESS OF THE BOARD CHOSEN OR THE WAVE RIDDEN, WHEN YOU LOVE SOMETHING THAT MUCH, YOU COULD CARE LESS, RATHER, YOUR JUST SIKED TO DO IT, AND IN THIS CASE,
SIKED FOR THE OTHERS THAT DO SO ALSO.
THURSDAY NIGHT CAL WAS INVITED BY KINGMAN FROM STANCE TO JOIN HIM, FORD, THOM PRINGLE, KYLE KENNELLY, MYSELF,  AND MANY OTHERS AT THE LIDO THEATER IN NEWPORT BEACH FOR THE PREMEIRING FILM STOKED AND BROKE, ALONG SIDE THE INCREDIBLE PRE SHOW ENTERTAINMENT BY LEVI PRAIRIE. LEAVING THE HEAVY CROWDS AND MANY FRIENDS, LATE PAST HIS BEDTIME ON A SCHOOL NIGHT, HE HAD NOTHING BUT GREAT THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THE END PRODUCT. THANKS TO THE BOYS WHO MADE THE FILM, AND EVERYONE INVOLVED ON THE NIGHT, UNTIL NEXT TIME.

KEVIN AND THE CREATURE

CAL MET UP WITH KEVIN ROCHE, A PHOTOGRAPHER FROM SAN DIEGO AND SUPER RAD DUDE, FOR A QUICK DAY IN THE LIFE. AFTER PAINTING AT THE KID CREATURE WAREHOUSE, HANGING
OUT WITH FRIENDS, AND GETTING A BRAIN FREEZE FROM THE LOCAL ICE CREAM MAN, THEY SNAPED A FEW SHOTS AND PARTED WAYS. READ THE FULL STORY HERE, AND KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR KEVIN AS HE CONTINUES TO BRING MOVING MOMENTS TO A STILL.

PIZZA BRINGS A PARTY



AS THE BELL RANG AT NEWPORT HEIGHTS TODAY, THE KID MET UP WITH HIS FRIENDS (FORD AND THOM) FOR SOME LUNCH AT THE CATALINA FISH KITCHEN, AND IN HIS ORDINARY FASHION, PULLED OUT A BOX OF HIS FAVORITE LUNCHABLE PIZZAS TO SNACK ON. FOLLOWING A FEW COKES AND LAUGHS, HE PAID A QUICK VISIT TO THE SLOBS NEW WAREHOUSE UP IN COSTA MESA. NOT ONLY WAS HE ENTERTAINED BY FORDS GUITAR PLAYING, DISTRACTED BY THOM PRINGLES RECENT HAIR COLOR (PINK), AND ABLE TO WORK ON A FEW NEW CREATURES, BUT HE WAS ALSO SURPRISED BY THE VISIT OF JED SMITH (WRITER FOR STAB MAGAZINE). AFTER A LONG CHAT AND SHORT INTERVIEW, HE MET UP WITH A COUPLE OTHER FRIENDS AT THE CONVERSE SKATE PARK WHERE HE BROUGHT THE NIGHT TO AN END. GETTING TO BED EARLY ALWAYS HELPS FOR A SURF IN THE MORNING, BUT BEFORE YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THE STORE LINKS ABOVE TO PICK UP A KID CREATURE SHIRT, AS YOU BENEFIT THE LIVES OF OTHERS FIGHTING AGAINST CF. THANKS TO YOU - KID CREATURE.

BUZZ

TONIGHT WAS NO DIFFERENT FROM THE REST, AS FORD CRUISED BY THE HOUSE WITH KYLE KENNELLY TO HAVE DINNER WITH THE KID. HE WAS SPOTTED WEARING ONE OF THE UP AND COMING LIFESTYLE SHIRTS, FEATURING DROID, TITLED "BUZZ". THE NIGHT WAS FULL OF MANY LAUGHS, STORYS TOLD, AND PLANS MADE, JUST BEFORE CAL PASSED OUT. THIS IS ALWAYS THE CASE, DUE TO A LONG DAY FULL OF SCHOOL, MEETINGS, AND SURFING. SOMETIMES WE FORGET THAT WE ARE WORKING WITH AN 11YR OLD ON THIS.
PS, IF YOUR WONDERING WHAT THE WORD "BUZZ" HAS TO DO WITH DROID, JUST ASK, AND DON'T FORGET TO VISIT THE STORE LINK ABOVE TO JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST "CF" BY PURCHASING THE SHIRT OF YOUR CHOICE.
THANKS AGAIN. - KID CREATURE

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY




IDEAS NEVER COME SHORT WITH THE KID, AS HE LOCKS HIMSELF INSIDE THE BEDROOM TO BRING NEW CREATURES TO LIFE. A PART OF ME WONDERS WHERE ALL THIS STEMS FROM, BUT AFTER BEING AROUND HIM EVERYDAY, ITS EASY TO SEE HIS THOUGHTS OUT WORKED. WHATS CRAZIER THAN ANY CREATURE, OR ANY WORK OF ART THE KID CREATES, IS HIS HEART FOR OTHERS. I GUESS WE ALL COULD BE BIT MORE COMPASSIONATE, FULL OF A BIT MORE LOVE, AND BRING A BIT MORE HOPE TO THE PEOPLE IN OUR WORLDS, BUT THIS GROM IS NEVER SHORT OF IT. KNOWING HIS HEART BEHIND THIS PROJECT MAKES IT THAT MUCH BETTER, AS HE TEAMS UP WITH PIPELINE TO A CURE, TO SEE THE LIVES OF MANY KIDS HIS AGE GIVEN A BETTER CHANCE AT LIFE. ITS RAD TO SEE A KID DO WHAT HE LOVES, NOT ONLY TO BENEFIT HIS OWN NEEDS BUT RATHER THE NEEDS OF SOMEONE LESS FORTUNATE. KNOWING THAT CF IS A SERIOUS DISEASE, KID CREATURE MAKES A STAND TO FIGHT, BUT IT DOESNT STOP THERE. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU HEAR ABOUT AN ISSUE LIKE SUCH, AND YOUR MOVED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, ITS NOT ALWAYS EASY TO GET INVOLVED,  BUT IN THIS CASE, YOU CAN. WHAT KID CREATURE CAN DO ON ITS OWN IS SOMEWHAT SIGNIFICANT, YES, BUT WHAT WE CAN ALL DO TOGETHER IS FAR GREATER. SELECT A SHIRT AT THE STORE LINK ABOVE AND 10% OF WHAT YOU PURCHASE WILL GO TO IMPACTING ANOTHER KIDS LIFE. NEVER FORGET THAT YOUR SMALL CONTRIBUTION, MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE, AS WE STAND TOGETHER AGAINST CYSTIC FIBROSIS. THANKS.
KID CREATURE - HOPING FOR A BETTER TOMORROW.

WEEKEND WAVES

NOW THAT SCHOOL HAS STARTED BACK UP AND 7AM BRINGS A WHOLE NEW MONSTER, CAL NEEDS A WHOLE NEW MEDICINE. WALKING INTO CLASS WITH SANDY FEET, AND HAIR DRIPPING LIKE A WET MOP MAKES EVERY TEACHER WONDER, IS THIS KID FROM ANOTHER PLANET? THE CURE TO THIS NEVER STILL LIFE THAT THE KID LIVES IS A BREWED CUP OF JOE JUST BEFORE HE GETS A WAVE. BUT NOW WE ARE STARTING TO WONDER, MAYBE ITS NOT THE CURE BUT RATHER THE CAUSE TO THIS MADNESS.
GO SURF. ITS THE WEEKEND.

EAST COAST JOINS THE FIGHT


MILES AWAY FROM CALIFORNIA, ON THE EAST COAST OF AMERICA, IN A CRAZY TOWN CALLED VIRGINIA BEACH, LIVES A KID BY THE NAME OF MICHAEL HANLEY - A WILD GROM WHO DOES NOTHING LESS THAN SURF, SKATE, AND PLAY MUSIC WITH HIS MANY CRAZY FRIENDS. A WEEK OR SO BACK, MICHAEL TURNED UP TO SEE PARTY THEFT PLAY AT THE ECSC EVENT, A PUBLIC DISASTER HELD EVERY YEAR FOR SURFERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD. NOT ONLY DID HE MAKE HIS OWN CUSTOM THEFT SHIRT, GET A PHOTO WITH THE SINGER, AND RAMPAGE THE STREETS, BUT HE WAS ALSO INTRODUCED TO KID CREATURE. BECOMING AN INSTANT FAN, HE READ UP ON CALS STORY, CRUISED THE SITE, AND ORDERED A FEW SHIRTS JUST IN TIME FOR THE START OF HIS NEW SCHOOL YEAR. MICHAEL NOW JOINS THE FIGHT AGAINST CF, AS 10% OF HIS PURCHASE GOES TO MAKING A WAY IN ANOTHER KIDS LIFE.
MICHAEL, YOUR A LEGEND, STAY CRAZY, AND CRUSE TO NEWPS WHENEVER YOU GOT THE TIME. YEW.

NEWPORT HEIGHTS

BILLY MADISON SAID IT BEST, BUT IN NEWPORT BEACH, ITS RARE TO FIND A KID WHO IS SUPER EXCITED ABOUT GOING BACK TO SCHOOL. CAL HAS MIXED EMOTIONS, HE LOVES SUMMER MORE THAN A BAKER LOVES HIS BREAD BUT IN THE SAME MEASURE HE IS STOKED TO SEE OLD FRIENDS, AND MAKE NEW ONES. APART FROM LEARNING A FEW SKILLS SUCH AS NUNCHUCK SKILLS, COMPUTER HACKING SKILLS, AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, CAGE FIGHTING SKILLS (THANKS TO NAPOLEON). HE LOOKS FORWARD TO WHAT THE YEAR HOLDS, WHILE THE MOVEMENT OF KID CREATURE TEAMS UP WITH FELLOW CLASS MATES TO  IMPACT BOTH THE LIVES OF THEMSELVES AND OTHERS.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN.

PASS IT ON


ITS NOT EVERYDAY THAT YOU FIND YOURSELF DOING A GREEN SCREEN INTERVIEW WITH JEFF KELLEY, THE FOUNDER OF SANUK, BUT WHEN YOUR 11YRS OLD AND THE ART OF TURNING ORDINARY THINGS INTO EXTRAORDINARY CREATURES BECOMES YOUR SOURCE OF EXPRESSION, I GUESS ITS JUST EXPECTED. A FEW WEEKS BACK WHILE KID CREATURE WAS PAINTING AND SOCIALIZING AT THE GREEN FLASH ART SHOW, CAL WAS APPROACHED BY THIS SAN DIEGO LOCAL, WHO WAS  GRACIOUS ENOUGH TO EXTEND AN INVITATION TO VISIT SANUK TO MEET THE STAFF.  AFTER A FEW SHORT WEEKS, THE TWO MET UP FOR THEIR FIRST TIME, BUT NOT THE LAST. DURING A WALK THROUGH OF THEIR WAREHOUSE, A FEW LAUGHS, AND MANY STORIES TOLD, THEY  PARTED WAYS WITH IDEAS TO POSSIBLY COLLAB IN THE NEAR FUTURE. STAY TUNED FOR WHATS TO COME, AND IN THE MEANTIME, GO GRAB A PAIR OF SANUKS FROM YOUR LOCAL SURF SHOP.  YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED.

FROM PENS TO PAINT





WHEN CAL STARTED OUT AS A 10YR OLD GROM FROM NEWPORT BEACH, HE HAD ONLY A SHEET OF COPY PAPER AND A BLUE POINT PEN. AFTER RECEIVING A CASE OF UNLIMITED SHARPIES IN THE MAIL FROM THE CORPORATE OFFICE, HE TOOK HIS CREATURES TO A WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL. GOING FROM PAPER TO T-SHIRTS, FROM T- SHIRTS TO CANVAS, HE NOW HAS HIS OWN WEAR-HOUSE LOCATED IN THE HEART OF COSTA MESA, SET UP FOR LIFE SIZE CUT OUTS. AFTER DOING A FEW STRATEGIC ART SHOWS, THE PAINT UNDER SLOB SURF CRAFTS, MEETING UP WITH THE GUYS FROM STANCERAEN OPTICS, AND SANUK, HE PLANS ON TAKING OVER THE WORLD.
THE BEST PART ABOUT CAL, IS FAR FROM HIS ABILITY TO BE CREATIVE AND WEIRD, ITS HIS HEART FOR OTHERS. NOT ONLY DOES CAL GIVE 10% OF EVERYTHING HE EARNS TO (CF) BUT HE ALWAYS MAKES ROOM FOR IMPACT. AS CAL COLLABORATES WITH FRIENDS LIKE ALEX WASBIN, CHRISTIAN YEAGER, AND MANY OTHERS TO MAKE LIFE THAT MUCH BETTER FOR SOMEONE LESS FORTUNATE, HE LOOKS FORWARD TO A BETTER TOMORROW AND WORKS HARD TOWARD MAKING A DIFFERENCE. 
JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST CF BY PURCHASING A SHIRT AT STORE ABOVE, AND THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE INVOLVED IN MAKING THIS WHAT IT IS. 
THE MARCH MOVES FORWARD.

BOY IN THE BUBBLE




TUESDAY NIGHT, CAL AND HIS FRIENDS FROM PRO THUNDER MADE A MESS OF THE NEWLY ESTABLISHED MAD HOUSE CALLED MESA IN ORANGE COUNTY. WITH A GRIP OF PEOPLE, AND MORE FUN ON THE DANCE FLOOR THAN A DISCO WITH THE JACKSON 5, THE CREATURE HIMSELF WAS PUT OUTSIDE IN THE CAGE TO PERFORM LIVE PAINTINGS, DUE TO HIS FAKE ID NOT WORKING. WITH ALL SAID AND DONE, THE NIGHT WAS A WIN FOR MANY, INCLUDING THE THRONGS OF PARTY GOERS WAKING UP WITH THEIR HEADS SPINNING  FROM THE REVOLUTION.
LETS JUST SAY THAT IS THE PRICE YOU PAY IN THIS TOWN, AND WE AS ARTISTS LOVE CREATING THE EXPERIENCE. GO DANCE YOUR SOCK OFF NEXT WEEK AND SEE WHAT THE TALK IS ALL ABOUT. A SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE THIS WORK.
