Mike Giant's Impermanent Vacation Part II: The Trip From Albuquerque To San Francisco

In part II of Mike Giant's Impermanent Vacation we head back to the very beginning and explore Giant's earliest years, tracing his childhood influences, through college and moving out to San Francisco to working at the burgeoning Think Skateboards. Once he got out to San Francisco Giant began studying Buddhism and dabbling in LSD, so to celebrate Bicycle Day we are excited to present three new blotter paper editions from Mike Giant featuring designs of the actual blotter that Giant would sell throughout the 90s. Printed by Zane Kesey - who's father Ken Kesey founded the infamous 1960s Acid Tests - these editions are available individually and in extremely limited 3-print sets. Read on as we explore Giant's earliest influences, his approach to color, staying in the lines, LSD, mediation, Think Skateboards and much more in our latest installment in Mike Giant's Impermanent Vacation. Be sure to snag one of Giant's blotter editions right here on 1xRUN before they are gone. . .

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Born in 1971 in upstate New York, artist Mike Giant began drawing as soon as he could hold a crayon. His family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1979 where he was immersed in BMX bikes, skateboarding, heavy metal, punk rock, hip-hop and gang violence. He graduated in the top 10% of his high school class and attended the University of New Mexico (UNM) on scholarship as an architecture major. He began writing graffiti under the name “Giant” just before starting college and got his first tattoo soon after.

In 1993 he was offered a full-time job drawing graphics for Think Skateboards in San Francisco and decided to leave UNM without a degree. After four years at Think, he lived in London briefly, then returned to San Francisco to work in animation. In 1998, Giant was offered an apprenticeship in tattooing by Nalla Smith. He began tattooing full-time a year or so later, and worked in legendary shops like East Side Ink, Newskool and Everlasting. Giant made tattoos full-time for a decade before switching his attention to REBEL8, a clothing brand he founded with his old friend Joshy D in 2003. Then, after 20 years in California, Mike moved to Boulder, Colorado where he currently lives and works.
