Sir Parker LeGrand Jacobs & Grik



Huntington Beach, California has a lot going for it. I've found a few more things. Parker Jacobs, artist & music maker, surfaced on the radar with his artwork on a pair of slip-ons painted by his friend & GOGO13 bandmate, Grik. Grik doesn't normally work on shoes, but it looks like we lucked out. Grik's illustrated sneaks are the first 2 shoes in a series of 4 based on set designs by Jacobs. Set design, you say? Yessiree. Recently, Jacob's focus has shifted from the print world to an interesting new animation/live action project. It's a sharp-looking kids show with Nickelodeon Networks called "Yo Gabba Gabba!" with guests like Biz Markie and Shiney Toy Guns. Yeah, he's a card carrying member of the Orange County Rad Dads Club. Look for the next pair in the Grik & Jacobs collaboration here: GOGO13and find out more on Parker Jacob's new work here:Yo Gabba Gabba!

My brother Parker is awesomely talented, no doubt about it. However, I hate to break it to you, but the set designs were done by our oldest brother (and series co-creator), Christian, based on some of his sketches. I then did the color schemes. It was quite a fun collaborative effort, and we're all really pleased at how it turned out.
And Grik's shoes are almost as awesome as he is! :)

whoa! bro fight! yeah! i did fact check with parker yesterday. haha! so just so we are clear for everyone: parker sketched, christian built and you painted? are there anymore people involved in this saga?

haha... Christian sketched, and I colored, but Parker didn't really have anything to do with the backgrounds. His expertise is in some of the character design and art. :) But whatever, it's all good in the hood.
