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!
