This past April, Blondey McCoy cut ties with Palace Skateboards after seven years. McCoy went on to purvey original artworks and exclusive merchandise for his LA sexhibition called "The Loved One." He then launched his first exhibition in London called "Stella Populis" back in June. Shortly afterwards, the aspiring artist launched his own retrospective photobook that featured 150 photos shot by Alasdair McLellan. Another of McCoy’s highlights this year was his collaboration with adidas on a translucent Superstar sneaker.
