THE SKATEBOARDER' S JOURNAL #9 - COVER

The Gonz. Enough said.

ILLUSTRATION FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #9

For an article about the Sydney Opera House demo in 1988, where it pissed down all morning and somehow dried up enough for Hosoi to get 10ft on a soggy-ass plywood ramp.





THE MIGHTY BOOSH ILLUSTRATION
FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #9

This illustration was assembled from many different pen drawings, assembled in and coloured in Photoshop with photos of frames. It's the brightest thing I've ever done, and learnt a hell of a lot about colouring images in Photoshop, in fact I bought books just to help with the techniques I already had.

TOMMY FYNN INTERVIEW FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #9

I had a lot of fun doing the pages for this interview, with all the little 60's people in it. I'm going to indulge myself and put the whole interview up here.

THE SKATEBOARDER' S JOURNAL #7 - COVER

Steve Gourlay took his balls in his hands and burnt a medium-format of Joe Pease's kickflip 50-50 and got real lucky!

MAIVE ILLUSTRATION FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #7

Andy Murphy has and equally fantastic weirdo for a brother - Maive. This article is about his rather epic motorcycle journey from Vancouver to the Panama Canal.

This was done in the style that I started using in the Iron Board Lord illustration in issue #3, and would end up being pushed further for the poster in issue #10.
