Over the phone, I heard the hum of machinery and the crackle of electricity from Atomic Bob’s laboratory. We hadn’t talked in a while and he regaled me with a tale so entertaining that tears streamed down my cheeks.  

I knew I had to capture every word. Hastily, I scribbled down his story. With a grin still plastered on my face, I made a decision – this tale was too good not to share. So, with excitement bubbling in my veins, I eagerly sent Atomic Bob’s story off to Bandit at Bikernet.com, which he printed.

I got on the horn with Atomic Bob to ask him to donate some art for the upcoming Flying Piston Benefit online auction in Daytona on March 4, 2024.

Instead of answering the question, Bob growled about those thieving sonsabitches hacking his Instagram account and were digitally squatting on his property.

He can’t DM, he can’t post directly, and he can’t get it back through Instagram. And the thieves want 250 hostage money!

I said, “250K?”

“No, $250 and I won’t pay it. If I find them, they won’t do it again!”

After he got that off his chest, we discussed his new store. He’s now offering his original masterpieces at the Atomic Bob Shop on Facebook. And here’s a kicker—he’s drawing inspiration from the vibrant 2000s era!

But wait, there’s more

Atomic Bob

Atomic Bob provided this 30oz BIG FRIG tumbler for the Flying Piston Benefit.

The Atomic one is a Lowbrow artist. This style of art is a populist art movement with its cultural roots in underground comix, punk music, tiki culture, graffiti, and hot-rod cultures of the street.

The Flying Piston Benefit partners with BIG FRIG because of the quality of the product. It’s engineered with double-wall vacuum insulation. The benefit is a drink will stay hot for over 5 hours and cold one for over 50 hours.
