THE SKATEBOARDER' S JOURNAL #10 - COVER

We had Steve Gourlay shoot this Goldfinger tribute cover.

We had our friend Vivian model for us and projected the image onto her. This was a super hard shoot to do, Viv had to strike the pose, then we shut the lights off for the projection, so she had to hold the pose in the dark for the long exposure. I was a tough one and we celebrated with many fine ales

It was colour printed onto silver stock to make it extra gold...

Bryce Golder is the dude doing the frontside blunt on the quarter.

CLICHE TOUR IN THE SKATEBOARDERS JOURNAL #10

I made a bunch of lino cuts for this article. I think the last time I used lino was as a teenager... good times.








PIE IN THE SKY OPENER FOR THE SKATEBOARDER' S JOURNAL #10

I made a bronze zeppelin from a model of a twin engined German fighter, a vinegar bottle and an upside-down plastic submarine, mated them all together with modelling clay and used pieces of brass piping to make the periscope. It's probably too hard to see but there are losts of brass bits from model trains in there too.


The background is a mix of painted image and photography.


To finish it off I housed a bunch of the skaters from the skate vid Skylarking to make the opener to the making-of article.









POSTER FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #10

I did this poster to celebrate the 10th issue of our mag. It shows all of the previous 9 issues devouring (and destroying) a city. I did this during the time of the Catholic Youth Week shit in Sydney, so I incorporated them in the poster, being blasted away - how appropriate.

This was a triple gatefold insert in the mag - a monstrous job to draw. I've added some magnified images too to show some of the detail I could get into the whole thing.
