John Trippe on The Creative Lives
    Thursday, 12 November 2015 /// Written by Trippe

"Passionate and humble, John Trippe created a website to share his photos and art in 2000, what ended up happening was the creation and curation of a successful art sharing template that would inspire an entire movement online.

John moved to San Francisco to pursue skateboarding and art. Before long he was publishing his own art 'zine called Fecal Face, and when digital publishing when in its infancy he released fecalface.com. The website would go on to spread art across 50,000 unique visitors a day and inspire generations on how you can adapt to do what you love on your own terms.

Fecal Face celebrated it's 10 Year anniversary at The Luggage Store Gallery, a location he had been inspired by as a young art fan in San Francisco. In this episode we follow John as prepare for the blowout group show and reflect on the website's past and future."

I am more than honored to be included in the 2nd season of the series, The Creative Lives, featuring a slew of talented folks like Barry McGee, Jeremy Fish, Richard Coleman, Futura, Mike Giant, Cleon Peterson, Tiffany Bozic, The Date Farmers, and so many others.

I may have stepped away from Fecal Face for the time being, but when the dust settles, I'll be back. In the meantime, check www.johntrippe.com for updates from the road.


90s Skateboarding in San Francisco Footage
    Wednesday, 25 February 2015 /// Written by Trippe

I've been going through some old footage I, John Trippe, filmed in the late 90s/early 2000s here in San Francisco and will be releasing it a bunch of it in the coming weeks.

Footage features all kinds of people from Cairo Foster, Kenny Reed, Ocean Howell, Rob Welsh, and a slew of other pros you will probably recognize from old skate videos like 411, Thrasher and others including a load of footage that didn't make it anywhere... Below is a little taste of what's to come.

Crazy couple of months. The old man died, and I got to see 3 great friends get married. Some go, and some arrive. Tis life's swings in visual forms.



High 5s: A Drift
    Thursday, 24 January 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Friends got married, saved some jokers from wrecking their boat on Alcatraz, our Winter Group Show @FFDG, stayed at the incredible beach front cabins at Mt. Tam State Park, and spent time on the water.

Blog in pictorial format

Incredible views at the Mt. Tam cabins

Congrats, Stefan and Jessie!

No motor and no radio when there's no wind during a huge tide? Not a smart move.

High 5s: Little White Dog
    Friday, 14 December 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Fecal Face has been in exsistence since the year 2000. Ever since then, High 5s, a photo-ish blog, has been thrown up about every 2 weeks. Here is another one.

Ya, the Navy left some radioactive materials after cleaning up boats exposed to radiation.

Media Temple Interviews Fecal Face
    Wednesday, 01 August 2012 /// Written by Trippe

For over 7 years Media Temple has been hosting Fecal Face with their wonderful tech support, fast servers, and with more bells and whistles than what we know to do with. As far as we're concerned, they are the BEST hosting provider out there, and it's been a pleasure to be associated with them.

They swung through FFDG a couple weeks back and got this short interview for their client showcase series. Be sure to watch the others they've done with the likes of Keep A Breast, SurfRider, and others HERE.

Hundreds Fecal Face Interview
    Monday, 04 June 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Fecal Face is one of the most influential online art magazines on the West Coast - hell, all over the world for that matter. It's the site that people go to get their news about upcoming and current art openings, artist interviews, studio visits, and so much more. It really gives you a chance at an insider's look at what the art world has been up to (you know, while you’re stuck picking your nose and staring at your computer screen, wishing you could draw).

Thanks to The Hundreds who interviewed me recently. It gives you some insight as to where this Fecal thing comes from, how it goes and where it could be going. ~READ IT.

R/GA Lecture Friday w/ Trippe, Fink, & Peirce
    Tuesday, 07 June 2011 /// Written by Trippe

Yep, my trap is going to open up some this Friday here in San Francisco. Stop through. *Customed brewed keg from Muffin Street Brewery for your drinking pleasure.

John Trippe, Courtney Fink and Daryll Peirce will be talking about the art scene in San Francisco, both from the perspective of the artist (Daryll Pierce) and from the Curators (John Trippe, Courtney Fink). They all have a unique perspective as they have been contributing to it significantly for quite a while.

John will also be talking about running a successful multi-media web site and how that has brought him to the gallery culture.

John and Courtney both have experience with the full spectrum of the scene, from Low-Brow to High-Brow. Daryll has extensive experience working with curators to get his work into shows all over the world.

Artists interested in trying to break in to the gallery culture, as well as people from all walks of life who frequent the art scene won't want to miss this event!
