    i am extremely weirded out! my old roommates and i had a stuffed polar bear(roughly dog sized and not real) in our house named hogan, which in a drunken night was randomly doused with lighter fluid and lit on fire. the flames were on hogan’s back, in the exact same spot that is painted above. tooooo weeeeeirrd!

  • M. Cavanagh

    The paintings are very thought provoking; the artist is attempting to draw attention to the planet’s problems. It is great art and with an important message to boot.

  • ahh i looove them! my favorite is of the seagull.

  • Brooke

    OMG this is so wonderful!!! i haven’t seen paintings so creative and well done for a while its impressive i love the concepts and the style gorgeous simply gorgeous

  • Amazing works of imagination, flawlessly executed! The bear,fox and the gull, are just flat disturbing! I keep going back to the fox. That’s brilliant! The animals, and most people for that matter have gotten no vote in how things are going. These are great paintings, but they are also strong political statements.

    He does all the album art for Silverstein :3
    I love his work <3

“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!
