  • Maya

    it looks like the figure is holding up a (blank) mirror in #3. very cool.

  • Benjamin

    These are great. I love the subject, the way it’s executed, everything. One of the best series of paintings I’ve seen on booooooom.com.

    The colours and style of theses images remind me of Jeff Jordan’s work…He did some cover art for the Mars Volta.

    I like all of them. I’ve been wanting to bee keep for a while, but I don’t really have the space. With bees always dying now, it’s a shame that people don’t do more of it. Bee keeping should be a priority for most farmers, and people who have the space to do it.

    These reminded me of this Pieter Bruegel painting:

    i love these, especially the way the landscapes slope off into the distance and the atmosphere of them.

    i am also going to bee keeping club to ‘educate myself in the art of bee keeping’ in the hope of getting a hive and swarm next summer !! Very excited

  • I wouldn’t care for having these on my walls!

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
