NEW COVER FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #13

Dane Burman ollies into the second bank at The Rocks in Sydney for the cover of our horror issue. A lot of people have thought about this, and those who tried it got worked - only Dane rolled away. You have to roll down a hill, turn right and ollie up a curb, then straight down the stairs into a downhill tunnel.

Be scared... this issue killed 3 computers, a lot of the skaters involved got injured, and we almost went insane making it. Andrew Peters photo.

SHANE AZAR PORTRAIT FOR THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #13

I decided to go with muppets after having dinner with Azar and looking at his muppet like hair. I made life size puppets out of high density foam, wool and fabric. The eyes came from ebay. I found some making-of shots, and have put them below the portrait.

The title was made out of melted wax and scanned.

Shot in Pete Daley's studio in Bondi, the same night as the Ryan Wilson "American Psycho" shoot in the same issue. Funny arse looking zombies, funny arse looking Shane.
