A good friend and major influence is turning the big 50 this month. Tony "Mad Dog" Alva. A few years back we toured a retrospective exhibit of his early history, including the photos of Wynn Miller and the early progressive Alva ads conceptualized by Eric Monson. There's 3 articles we just put up under the Propagandist on Freshjive site. We put out a book as well. I've found a few in the warehouse, and they'll be available again this week at our Reserve store in Los Angeles. He's having a birthday blowout at his store on Fairfax on Saturday September 22. You gotta roll.
