There are a lot of people in LA that make this town awesome. Rick Rodney is one of them.


Rick Rodney has been around. And you can’t help but pay attention to what the man does. What ever he’s up to. If you dig the Southern California-based hardcore scene, he served as front man for the band Strife. He’s done apparel and graphic design work with folks like Fucking Awesome and a plethora of projects for a variety of folks. He also holds down art director/manager for Freshjive’s flagship store Reserve on Fairfax. Rick also happens to be one of the artists we’re highlighting at our “End Days” event this Saturday. Make the jump to read a little meet and greet interview.

Introduce yourself to Lost In A Supermarket readers.
Hello, my name is Rick Rodney. I am a photographer living and working in Los Angeles. Good to know ya.

What do the words “End Days” mean to you?
I suppose a little of both… There seems to be an overwhelming consensus (at least in my immediate surroundings) that the world is coming to some sort of “end”, but I don’t really fear it. I think that we (human kind) have had a fair enough run, we’ve chosen to kinda fuck it up, and the problems we now face, as a whole, will make it right. The playing field is being leveled along with the rain forests, and I hope that someday we can all put our bullshit aside.

What would you like people to say about you and/or your work when you’re gone?
He, and it, were honest. I’m still feeling my way through it all… Yeah, I hope they say something along those lines.

What—outside of other artists or heroes—has influenced your art the most?
My surroundings.

Of all the work you’ve created, can you name a couple that you have a special love for or connection to?
Oh, I think it’s a bit early to be calling favorites… Ask me that in 30 years.

If you were Lost In A Supermarket, what aisle would we find you in?
Wherever the cheap booze was…

    Rick’s photos are great. I regularly visit his blog and always look forward to him posting new stuff.

    Funnily enough I used to love his band when I was younger as well – Still do, actually – Small world. They were a real inspiration during my formative years and definitely helped influence me to be the person I am today.

    Much respect to Rick anyway. Good luck to him and everything he does in the future.
