We spent a few breezy moments sitting beneath a pinwheel designed by Mike Mills as it spun over Hollywood at the first-annual Swerve Festival. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday.
Festival papa Jonathan Wells opens the first night’s screening of Surfwise.
Aaron Rose does a sound check at the BARR Listening Tree; art by Jesse Spears.
Spears also manned the highlight of the festival, a Sharpie tattoo booth.
Crowds swelled to both observe and receive Spears’ awesome semi-permanent artistry.
More lines, this time to silkscreen shirts.
Or anything else that would take the ink.
CreateAskate workshops were booked solid throughout the day. We even saw people taking their boards over to the silkscreening station.

Live music overlooking Los Angeles.
