What Happened – Andy Jenkins Collab Capsule by The Quiet Life

Quiet Life x JenkinsThe Quiet Life has proudly introduced a capsule collection with Andy Jenkins and Bend Press to celebrate the release of Andy’s new book, ‘What Happened.’

‘What Happened’ is a compilation of short, written pieces by Andy. The work is a celebration of the typically mundane — from visiting his psychiatrist to buying a used Lincoln Towncar and riding the bus. Jenkins’s writing captures the ordinary moments in a voice ranging from humorous and quirky, to, at times, thought provoking and real. As a bonus, the accompanying illustrations, by the talented Travis Millard, are spot-on interpretations of this oddball collection. A perfect paring.

This capsule includes a lapel pin, pencil set, long and short sleeve Ts and a few hats and hits finer shops worldwide and thequietlife.com this week.

IRIS Skateboards

We recently received a custom IRIS skateboard from George Rocha and set it up and took it for a roll through the streets. For several years now, George has been creating these truly unique one of a kind skateboards from – skateboards! His upcycling process begins with the donations of used skate decks which are then glued together, sliced into slabs, shaped, cut and sanded into an awesome and unique line of 7 different cruiser decks all from within his garage space in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset district.

These skateboards are genuinely derived from self-made craftsmanship that liberates old discarded decks (by the hundreds) from clogging up the landfills and gives them new life within a new piece of skateable art. The Point Break model that we received measures in at 27.25” x 7.25” with an effective 17’ wheelbase. I set it up with a set of Independent 109s and OJIIIs for a smooth, responsive roll and it quickly brought me back to that embryonic magic rolling feeling as the sidewalk quickly passed beneath my feet as a young kid. So good!

All IRIS decks feature a unique look from each and every board that is produced and they creatively make use of recycled crushed glass which is environmentally friendly, super grippy and allows for the beauty of these original colored veneers to shine right through. Whether you’re a collector or looking for a profoundly unique daily cruiser, IRIS skateboards are both functional and favorable, made from skateboarding and a lifelong skateboarder.

Be sure to drop on by the IRIS Skateboards website for more info, photos and video of George’s creations and follow socially @iris_skateboards.
