In September of 2016 I drove to downtown Los Anegeles' Fashion District to meet Anwar Carrots.
 

As a long time fan of the Carrots brand, I went to talk streetwear, and give Anwar Fontaines.
 

I arrived at the last hour on the last day of clothing tradeshow for buyers and distributors. I slept in. 
 

As booths were packing up, I introduced myself to Anwar, showed cardistry, and told him my story.
 

"Honestly I haven't met anyone yet at this event I want to work with, except one guy who I might make a 1/1 snowboard with", Anwar said, pausing.
 

"Let's do a deck."


Joining cardistry and streetwear has been a longtime dream. Lining up at supreme in 2011, I dreamt of a day when kids would line up for playing cards.
 

I've been a fan of Anwar since tumblr, thru PNCintl, and you'll see me wearing carrots in my videos since 2013. I genuinely love this brand. Anwar and I started working on this collection over 10 months ago.  Today Carrots Fontaines are a reality. To hold this deck, with my logo and the carrots logo, is very surreal.
 

My first collab being with my favorite street wear brand is a dream. Kids lining up at Round Two for a deck of cards is a dream. Making friends in streetwear, learning and getting inspired by Jered Vargas, Mike Cherman, Alex Bortz, Joey Paschette, Bobby Hundreds, Andy Paz, Ryan O'Conner, and Sean Wotherspoon is a dream. 
 

All of these dreams are actually becoming a reality. It's fucking nuts, and I'm so honored and humbled to be part of it all. This is just the beginning.
