Editor‛s Note

I

decided to write this book to give you a visual narrative of what Lost Art Liquids is about. We are a band of tastemakers, misfits, and artists.

Lost Art Liquids was born in 2014. My investment came in the form of a pair of Air Yeezy Red October sneakers and the rest shall we say, is history. I have always aimed for Lost Art Liquids be a reflection of the passions and interests of myself and the Lost Art team. We've gone through our own journey as a company and have achieved our proverbial Second Wind as one of the most acclaimed brands in the game today.

chapter 1 forever young Youthfulness is not determined by age. It is decided by one's life force. One who possesses hope is forever young. One who continually advances is forever beautiful.

P

erhaps Aaliyah was right, and that age really is just a number. How young or old someone feels has a tremendous influence on their health and how other people see them. Studies have shown and suggest that feeling young can truly make you look young—and also have the health of a younger person. Its never too late to make a life-changing decision to better yourself. Meet Robert Sauve aka "Cowboy Bob." He's 80 years young and a Vietnam Veteran. He was an avid smoker for over 60 years (1-2 packs a day since he was 15 years old) until he kicked cigarettes to the curb and started vaping. He's now gotten his swagger back, his joy and loves his Unicorn Puke.

Kali Muscle is a man that tosses this stereotype on its head like a Jake "The Snake" DDT. Entrepreneur icon, actor, author, philanthropist, motivational speaker, and father. Kali has been all of these over the course of his life. But, more importantly, this former herculean blockstar is also an inspirational figure. His checkered past from ex-con to icon has forged a path by way of bodybuilding and he is living proof of what anybody, regardless of their aspiration or history, can achieve when all the odds are stacked against them.

the counterculture avatar of real world application. He’s not here to school you on proper dieting and macros or how to get massive biceps or shoulders. He’s here to disrupt the narrow scope and mindset of the current state of the union of fitness.

Kali is the epitome of nonconformity and like Frank Sinatra, he did things his way. He’s not your typical white-collar bodybuilder that would grace the likes of commercial fitness magazines, but

Outside of the gym, he excelled at a number of sports, including wrestling, track, and even received a football scholarship to Fresno State University, where he was a running back. The stars aligned and the

Kali Muscle was born and bred in Oakland, California into a neighborhood afflicted by crime and poverty. As an active and gifted teenager, he quickly developed a love for the gym and copped his first gig at 24 Hour Fitness. Not one to become a product of his environment by slanging dope or gangbanging, Kali was forced to own his first gun at Elementary School for protection from his surroundings.

universe opened itself to this young kid from the hood. Everything seemed to be going according to plan. Notwithstanding, in Kali's senior year, tragedy struck his family when his older brother was killed after ‘messing around with a gun’. You know what they say when it rains, it pours. His once bright future spiraled deeper in despair, when, in his second year at Fresno State, Kali ran into financial hardship, and soon found himself resorting to robbery to make ends meet. He was later arrested and ended up in San Quentin State Prison, where he collectively spent 11 lifechanging years. As a resident of San Quentin, Kali once again turned to lifting for therapy. Pushing weight like a man obsessed, Kali began throwing them thangs around like Skittles. His renewed focus on building his adonis-like physique gave him fresh resolve, a temporary escape from the truth of his circumstance. But disaster struck again when the state decided they were going to confiscate the weights from San Quentin. Not being one to give up on anything, Kali improvised and developed new innovative ways of working out like using laundry bags, pillowcases and human weight for example. His resourcefulness frustrated

econd Chances. Rebirth. Everybody loves a comeback story. Second Wind signifies just that. Second Wind is the movement of taking back our lives from tobacco. Everybody deserves a second chance at life, and vaping provides that exact vehicle to regain your freedom. After all, isn't that what we as individuals are about? Los Angeles has rebuilt itself from the ashes from the riots in 1992 to the earthquakes in 1994. The one thing about us is that we have always persevered and thrived under dire circumstances. We wear our hearts on our sleeves. So should you.
