Last month, the Toypunks crew hit San Francisco to film for Volume 2. On our first day, we caught up with legendary artist Mike Giant. With a career that spans graffiti, skateboard graphics, tattoo, fashion and fine art, Mike is an inspiration--openminded, outsider, disciplined and spiritual.

We met up with him at the warehouse where he and his business partner, Joshy D, run fashion label Rebel8. The interview was pretty rad, as Giant shared his perspectives on art, music, punk rock, the environment, skateboarding, Buddhism and childhood toys.

Mike drew the Toypunks mascot character for us in 2007 and hand-drew our logo, so we were stoked to interview him for the second film.

Then, two days later, we got to interview Joshy of Rebel8 at Mike's house, which we'll be posting about soon. Look out for it.
