Doing illustrations requires talent but it also demands practice. Funny Toonz has done a lot of training lately as you can see in the BMX illustrations you can see in this post.

-Garrett Reynolds
-Mat Hoffman
-Nathan Williams
-Corey Martinez
-Dominic Nekolny
-Simone Barraco

For a while we placed ads in BMX magazines on the regular. We've got a whole series of them which we'll be showing you again starting off with the party ads. We had to stop this theme because people were seen dancing with girls, drinking alcoholic beverages while the lady was sat at home on the couch being bored. A man's gotta do, what a man's gotta do. Making it in an ad had never been this easy. Just party and voila, you ended up in the FATBMX ad. Now check which riders your recognize from the following ads.

Earlier this week The Wildman posted up a "how-to" on Instagram. He was doing a manual in some exotic country. The funny thing was, he looped out and fell on his ass. He still posted it up and I thougt that was cool. The how-to of today shows you what to do to prevent from looping out. We trust the Wildman can do a manual, just make sure the rim isn't wet.
