L'art de Petomanie


My Grandad gave me these last week and I'm over the moon. I fucking love typography especially old stuff...and two of these were published in the 20's! Grandad used to be a book binder and the books he made are just awesome. He told me he has some gold and silver leaf in the back garden shed as well as a printing press...I guess I will be hangin gout with Grandad a lot this summer.

DECKADES....another great show I can tick off my list

On saturday I went to the Deckades show in Bristol and saw the raddest collection of boards ever. I was so stoked, having recognised a lot of them from books and the net, it was awesome to see them for real. As you can see below, I took an awful lot of photos...and this isnt even half of them!

just an overview


some of the new, specially commissioned boards raising money for UNICEF

for Craig

I remember seeing this one (middle) in a book and instantly loving it, I really like the deer. So stoked to see it 'in the flesh'

After the show I went to Bedminster skatepark which is a gnarly concrete park just over the Avon. The concrete there was so rough, the first thing i did was bail and slam my hand. Again. I have a permanent bruise/scar tissue lump there. I was told there was some sick bowls and a wicked snake run once, but some kids informed me they took that out years ago 'cos a kid got seriously injured there once. Despite this, it is still a rad place, even though there wasn't many skaters when I went, I was just chillin' with the kids! There were, however, a few graffiti artist doing there thing (shitloads of awesome graf in Bristol) but unfortunately, I took up all my memory space taking photos at Deckades!

Oh look! I just found a photo of part of Bedminster skatepark on the net, take a peek.
