Chasing Nostalgia…

Suspend all disbelief. I don’t think I was ever after the idea of creating an actual game more so than actually creating a ‘feeling’. It’s simple, it’s plastic—but within it is imagination, a healthy dose of attention to detail, and well—a little piece of me. Here’s a little keepsake to remind us of when we were young and how to still be a kid even after we grow old…

Can It Be Real?…

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more real—it’s definitely still NOT real, lol. When I randomly came up with the idea to create a SNES game box a few days ago, I had no idea it’d be so well-received. I honestly thought people would think it’s kinda corny but maybe that’s exactly what we need right now. A little bit of nostalgia to remind us of our childhoods never hurts, I guess. So I took it a step further and created the intro for this imaginary Chronicles video game that must actually exist somewhere in an alternate dimension. I took some old photos I shot from the past, did some cool 16-bit-style stuff to it, added some assets I found from around the web and turned on the game for the first time, haha. I’m currently in the process of producing more game boxes for those who want to have one as a keepsake. It makes for a cool collectible/art-piece for the enthusiasts who support The Chronicles. Hope you like it!!…

The Chronicles ‘Highway Attack Challenge’ in 16-Bit…

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I enjoy collecting things, especially if they are nostalgic and/or remind me of my childhood. I grew up in the ‘90s and a lot of my time was spent playing Super Nintendo. It was always so cool to go to the store and see new games come out and holding them in your hand after they were taken out from behind the display case. Just seeing all the boxes and the box art was so cool. Lately I’ve been trying to consistently be in a creative space so one day I decided to create something that had a mix of both my childhood and what I do as an adult now. I thought it’d be cool to imagine The Chronicles as an SNES Racing video game. It’s completely unrealistic because the eras don’t match-up, nor would a game ever have these types of features or graphics but the main thing I wanted to do was create the box art for this imaginary game.

This Is From The Heart… THEKANJOZOKU.COM….

It’s finished….it’s finally finished…. I’m closing the final chapter on this project. Any and everything that I do with the Kanjozoku in the future will just be for me and for my own passion to pursue it. There are just too many risks involved and I have many in Japan who are frankly very afraid …

Funny Night Meet 2014 USA & Japan Coverage….

I’ve never been one to post coverage of an event really late but with all that is going on lately, I just merely forgot all about these photos. It wasn’t until one of my guest photographers, Jimmy Nguyen, posted one of his shots on Instagram did I realize that these photos were still sitting on …

Up to NO GOOD…

This whole journey in Japan has been incredible so far. If there is one photo that I think captures the essence of one of the most memorable moments of my entire trip, it would be the photo above that I captured on my cell phone of two members from the legendary NO GOOD RACING car …
