#SM25 | Jayme Lemperle

On Our Radar

I discovered Jayme Lemperle two years ago when a mutual friend posted a Vice feature on the young artist, under the moniker Stale Bagel, on Facebook. After immediately obsessing over his witty work, I just knew I had to meet the funny dude behind the drawings. Now, we’re Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook friends! Although he lives in L.A. to illustrate for skate label, RIPNDIP, full time now, I continue to follow his social media religiously– and often screenshot his illustrations to share with ALL of my friends.
