Rollies Show at All the Right: Oct. 30th, 6 to midnite!

I just visited All the Right with NEMO last night so I could scope out the location for the Rollie show next Friday night.
I have to say that All the Right FAR exceeded my expectations. First of all, it's easy to get to using the 7 train- Junction Blvd is an express stop so you can grab any 7 train and it will stop at Junction Blvd.
A short walk up Junction Blvd to 37th Ave gets you to the store, which is located at 35-61 Junction Blvd.
Inside I found a spacious second floor shop with hardwood flooring running from front to back!
In addition to spray paint, paint markers and all the requisite supplies for writing, All the Right sells a LOT of high-end design label streetwear. I even spotted a Mishka jacket! Hoodies, vests, really nice jeans, high-end t-shirts and a ton of sweet sneakers that would make any sneakerhead drool, all arranged tastefully on racks and shelves...
In short, a great location for the Rollie show!
NEMO knows the owner of the shop and I got to meet him. He was psyched to host our custom show! Sneakers and clothing will be cleared out so we can mount the show.
Here are the pics of the shop:

This sneaker rack has nice spotlighting on it and will be cleared of sneakers to display the custom Rollies:

The entrance to All the Right:
Coming up the stairs, you're surrounded immediately by artwork:
Right at the top of the stairs, you find racks of clothes, including that blue jacket by Mishka, and a video game console for your street fighting pleasure:
The All the Right staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about streetwear.
This is one of the 2 rooms that look out over the intersection:
This front room will feature live artwork during the Rollie Show:

The checkout counter of All the Right, where you can buy cans of paint, paint markers, nice black sketchbooks, hip hop CDs, and maybe spot some designer toys and customs by NEMO:

NEMO and I are super excited for this custom show, we've already received a lot of customs back from participating artists and they look top-notch!
Please stop by next Friday, October 30th. There's going to be custom Rollies, live painting, music & more!

Qeenormous Maximus 5-ft custom DLi$h Qee up for auction


After two years of moving around, the Qeenormous Maximus is looking to find a permanent home. The piece has traveled throughout California in galleries including 1AM, D-Structure, and Filthy Dripped.

This is one of very few five foot Qees in the world. It has been meticulously painted by DLi$h to become the ultimate show stopper. The toy was slaved on for just under two months before completion. Weighing in a just over 70 pounds, this toy is no toy. Unlike most custom toys, this piece is made of fiberglass rather than vinyl.

The theme behind Qeenormous Maximus is the idea of creating an entire world that lives within the toy. You will find numerous windows that show a surreal setting of monsters, machines, and diabolical mayhem.

Go eye to eye with Qeenormous Maximus and you will find yourself staring at two naked girls posed elegantly awaiting their savior. This piece begs to make the statement that vinyl toy art is not just a hobby; It’s the new emerging medium in the urban art world.

The piece will be auctioned on Ebay w/ the opening price starting at… ONE PENNY. 10% of proceeds will go to Project Open Hand, so we’ll see what Qee can do for the world.

Click here to view the ebay auction and please pass this info around, it's for a good cause!
