A Prayer For The OG
Dear God please
protect the o,g.’s
through a lot,
seen a lot,
done a lot,
helped a lot,
been fought hard
won some, lost some
can’t stop won’t stop.

A first of its kind ground breaking show, Neoglyphix: The original all indigenous aerosol art exhibition was held on Oct. 24th. 20 artists from various tribal backgrounds came to paint. These are the photos from the piece I did and some process shots as well as visitors.
A short video is also forthcoming detailing my work here. I was honored to have been invited for the second year in a row.
Thank You all for following Douglas Miles & Apache Skateboards. I’ve neglected to update this site as much I want to. You can follow also via IG : @dmiles1_apache @instapache1 @whattribeproject and also Twitter @apachesk8boards @douglasmilesart @WhatTRIBE . It’s so easy to use the other social media platforms that I forget my own website but thanks for your patience.
I’m still making art, the Apache Team is still skating and we still have a lot of work ahead of us. Please stay tuned.
This photo is from “Neoglyphix” at Arizona State Museum. A short video is next.

Today I placed this rare item on EBAY
This was done for a Native American Art Festival in 1996. I was selected as the poster artist. Very rare and in mint condition and available now if you find it.
I designed this graphic for my skate crew while listening to Bootsy Collins, then this happened. One Nation Under A Groove. Thank You Bootsy.
