Friday Features: Bruce Gordon is Obsessive, Tracing Dirt, Perfect Drifting, more

Obsessive. The term can be interpreted in multiple ways depending on its connotation. In terms of Kitsbow’s new Obsessives video series, the word refers to those who are completely devoted to their craft in a decidedly good way. Builders like Bruce Gordon, one of the true ‘OG’ frame builders  who is still shaping metal into beautiful, functional art in his Petaluma workshop. Sometimes it’s good to be obsessive.
