this month we are happy to present to you a very cool and cute sticker
design by KEVIN SECONDS from Sacramento,
CA. Kevin Seconds was born in Sacramento but his family moved to Reno,
NV and in the early 80's.. he and his brother Steve formed the legendary
punk rock band 7 SECONDS. I first heard 7
Seconds on the Not So Quiet On the Western Front
compilation record on Alternative Tentacles records. It was one of those
punk rock collections that everyone had if you were into punk rock at
that time. Comps were a great was to find out about new bands, and thats
how I heard 7 Seconds.. I was not really into the whole straight
edge' scene..so they were not really a band on my radar at all. But I
was aware of them.. I saw them play a show once.. they were fun. Fast
forward to the late 1990s.. I was part of the NOISE community by that
time.. and coming to Sacramento for Norcal Noisefest. Kevin had
moved back to Sac.. he and his beautiful wife, Allyson, opened
a coffee shop.. and Noise Fest was happening there! So I got to meet Kevin
and hang out with him and spend sometime getting to know him.. and damn
it, HE is a damn swell person.. always real.. ready to tell you how he
feels about it.. no matter what it is. He does not hold back..and I like
that in a person.. Since I moved to Sacramento in 2005.. he has become
more of a friend that just someone I know in a band..and that is cool.
He plays solo acoustic gigs regularly in town and tours as well.. he also
still plays with 7 Seconds too . And they tour all over the world..
and when he is home is is a Lyft driver.. artist, husband, musician,
man about town and all around good egg. A few years ago I started seeing
posts on social media of small pieces of art that Kevin was doing and
selling. He posts them on his website, and also has them available at
his live shows. His art was very cute and quirky and people seem to really
enjoy them when it posts them. (as they generally sell pretty quickly)
When I first had the idea of the Sticker Club.. Kevin was one of those
person's who came to mind that it would be great to have him involved..
and so I waited until the project was off the ground and approached him
and was really delighted he agreed to design a sticker for our club. This
sticker is very cute and silly.. and its very much the type of art that
Kevin does on a regular basis...although he tends to really like painting
owls or robots a lot.
