3D SCULPTURE FOR THE SKATEBOARD'S JOURNAL #20


Evil baby for Chris Nieratko's article "Momma don't let your Skaters grow up to Murderers". Made from junk toys, modelling clay and painted. The eyes sucked in the big doll, so I scanned and added the eyes from some I had in my bits and pieces box. The board is all scratch built too, no tech deck here.




THE SKATEBOARDER'S JOURNAL #20. 


I got the cover this issue! This is big, stands about 16" tall, the hairs alone took 7 hours. Everything was made from scratch, I welded the coping from 1.6mm steel plate, the microphone is adapted from a mini torch. The shoes are made from a pair of jeans inside out - I had the soles perfect but was running out of time so put them in the oven to dry and forgot about them, and they came out all beat up looking, saving me the time of ageing them! The jeans are cut down and restitched from an old pair of cut off shorts I had. I found the socks at a $2 shop and cut them down, so I got to cheat there too. 


Early sketch, one is all it took this time...

BAKER KEVIN "SPANKY" LONG "PYTHON" GRAPHIC


I wanted to do a Monty Python, Terry Gilliam-esque board for Spanky. While the final board isn't really a Python graphic, there's still lots of random surreal shit going on, lots of pretty women and cute animals and cigarette smoke.


BAKER DUSTIN DOLLIN "OMEN" GRAPHIC


This was based on the amazing poster for the first Omen movie. If you know Dusty personally or by reputation it'll make perfect sense...


BAKER DUSTIN DOLLIN "PUNISHMENT" GRAPHIC


This new one for Dusty was going to be a cover for the magazine, but some amazing skateboarding pushed it aside so it found its way onto a Baker board... I think it suits the board better - I'll come up with an art cover someday soon.


This is also my first woodstain graphic, I've always loved the look of graphics floating over wood.
