I'm in Shanghai, China. Thought I'd mail y'all and let you know how it's going. It's like the sketchy, dirty version of Japan. I'm in some crazy plush hotel with a pool on the 26th floor and all this crazy stuff. I went out for dinner earlier and ate fried silkworms. Here's a pic. They were pretty nasty, in all honesty--big, bloody things, too. There was donkey meat on the menu, but I was more in a fried silkworm kind of mood, you know what I mean? I haven't seen dog on the menu yet, but it's early days.
I'm here to paint a ramp. Ha-ha, really! It's a strange world that we live in. There's this big skate art thing that Adidas is sponsoring and someone asked me if I wanted to come over and paint a ramp for it. Andrew Pommier, Matt Irving, Kirk Dianda and Benjamin Debert are here, among others. If I eat any more rad things I'll let you know. I'll send some pics of the ramp after I paint it today.

So, I spent all day yesterday painting a ramp and a hubba. I got there at 10:00 in the morning and left at 10.00 at night. Grafting! Here's a park overview, including a hubba and ramp shot and hubba detail shot. I also wrote "Living the dream" on top of that kinked bank thingy, which is incidentally the funnest object in the whole place. I haven't eaten any more insects, but I'll let you know if I do.--Fos
