After hearing the news of Shogo Kubo’s passing, Jesse Martinez organized a new tradition for the Venice Skatepark bowl by inviting street artist, Axis, to draw a tribute to the Dogtown legend. The tradition continued, sadly, a few weeks later for Jay Adams. The CBS crew: Dcypher, Self and Existereo, spent two blistering hot days on the white concrete of the bowl leaving a permanent mark for Jay Boy with their rendition of Glen E. Friedman’s photo of Jay Adams low pivotal at Adolph’s, 1977, from the book “Fuck You Heroes”. With the support of Jesse Martinez and the VSA, everyone donated their time and talent to this effort for Jay. Jay Adams. R.I.P.
