Every week we feature a different person from the community shedding a little light on their life of brokeitude.  Who knows, maybe you’ll learn something about the human spirit'probably not.

Wanna be a Broke-Ass of the Week?  Holler at us here and we’ll send you the questionnaire.

So I’m about to run out the door and head up to Yosemite for New Year’s, so I unfortunately don’t have time to do an lengthy intro.  In that case here is what Kid Yellow had to say when I asked him what he’d like me to include:

Fun facts and stuff:

-I’m from New Rochelle, New York

-I’ve been living in San Francisco for about 4 years.

-I am attending the san francisco art institute and will receive my b.f.a. in may 2011

-I like cartoons and it heavily influences my artwork

-Skateboarding is fun

-None of the skateboards in the photo belong to me

I guess thats all. maybe a shameless website plug??
