Never For Money, Always For Love

Censport Graphics

When I was 16, and living in the Lesser Los Angeles Area, I was kindly asked to leave my high school.  I was a rebel without a clue, and my mom could no longer handle my teenage angst.  Her only option was to send me back to Idaho to live with my dad.  Keep in mind, this is Boise Idaho in the mid 90s, and I came there from Los Angeles — the center of street culture at the time.  Needless to say, I wasnt immediately accepted at my new private Catholic high school.  I drove a 64 Impala and wore a Wu-Tang jacket (cough cough). One of the first people I met, at this new school of mine, was a kid named Tyler Cenarrusa.  We quickly formed a brotherly bond, which still exists today, and will continue until the day we die.  He is the realest and most honest person that I know.  One thing that Tyler has always been OBSESSED with is motorsports, of all kinds.

Censport Graphics became an idea in August of 2005. It all started when Tyler bought a new helmet for racing and wanted a custom paint job. He called a few places to learn more about it and was about to send it off when he realized that he could just do it himself.  What started as a hobby painting helmets for friends and fellow BMW enthusiasts has become a full blown business.

A few months ago I became friends with a guy named Caleb Clark, who has quickly become one of my best friends.  Caleb is creative director of MMI (Motorsports Management International) out of Charlotte, NC and also does creative work for Scott Speed (NASCAR).  Since I was in Boise this weekend with Caleb, I HAD to take him by Tyler’s shop.  Not only so he could see the quality of his work, but also to see how clean & amazing his operation is.  Needless to say, Caleb was VERY impressed, and is working to link Tyler up with his many Charlotte/NASCAR connections.

Enjoy the photos.
