RIP Anthony "Tony" Evjenth
May 22, 1973 - September 29, 2011
I'm still in shock of the recent news, that my friend Tony and creator of WLLM (White Label Limited apparel), has passed away last week. Even though I had only known Tony for a short period of time he was quick to make a positive impression on me. He was funny, easy-going, selfless and business savvy. I was aware of his passion for everything skateboarding. He told me how he used to be the team manager for éS and Matix and I was intrigued by his up-in-coming tee shirt company that he had been releasing a new design every month. Offering new unknown artists a canvas, on his shirts. We would exchange business ideas and every time I left the WLLM headquarters, I would have a ton of new WLLM gear. He was a extremely generous, friendly and responsible man. I'm sorry to hear of his recent death especially after hearing that he was a father-to-be soon. My heart goes out to all his family, our friends,his girlfriend and his soon to be born son.
Tony was a avid photographer and keep a online photo journal on flickr and twitter
