Ornamental Conifer x Ken Block


I like Ken Block's YouTube sensational Gymkhanas. I watch them with my boy, but I wouldn't normally post them on the blog and wouldn't have done this new one if Mr Block wasn't wearing an Ornamental Conifer jacket!

Nico, Mr Ornamental Conifer, is now based in LA and concentrating more on art art than commercial art. So fewer jackets, fewer helmets, fewer petrol tanks, more framed work and objets d'art (painted bottles, slingshots)…

Read about the Royal Enfield Ornamental Conifer painted for us back in 2011 (after Sideburn was turned onto the then barely known painter by Death Spray Custom) in Sideburn 10.

The film is well worth your tea break. G

I'd be decking fuming if someone closed the M25, while I was on it, for a fecking video to sell more fecking trainers and fizzy pop. But that's just me. G

The bastard! The reason we can't find let a one afford a retail space in the 'Arts District' where this opens is because no f**king landlord in his right mind would rent for a meagre monthly sum when they can get thousands a day every time the place gets shut down for use in a Transformers movie or something like this! It is fun driving over that 4 level onto the 105 though, even in my not 800 something hp truck....

And that's why the f**king cops are never in sight, they seem to work for the advertising/movie industry more than the populace of LA....
