HUSTLE FILE #68: Stroked

NAME: Stroked

OCCUPATION: Painters and Skaters

LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA

WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: To inject some more life into the skate community by painting skateparks and skate spots using skateboards.

WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: We love exercising our creativity within the Los Angeles communities we grew up in. A lot of us get stuck indoors trading in our hours to pay rent and other bills. This project allows us to create in a very active and dynamic way. It’s a way to turn on the right side of our brain and contribute to the skate and art communities. Our hustle keeps us involved, active, and always communicating.

IF YOU COULD HAVE THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: Paint, a skateboard, and some creative ass skaters.

A WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: No doubt the first thing is find a group of people you love and start discussing your ideas. Stroked is a group effort; and while one person can conceive of an idea you need a handful of creative people to help develop and execute. Also, If something comes to mind that spawns a fire to create, never give up on it. It rose to the surface for a reason. Troubleshooting is the name of the game and nothing comes easy. Let your creation develop and nurture your project letting it happen organically.
