  • Wow. These are so beautiful. Whimsical almost.

    Fantastic work.

  • A really nice push and pull of line work and experimental textures.

  • Love it! Fiona uses paint in so many different ways…That really gives a lot of character and depth to her work.

  • Yes, I just love these abstracts which evoke nature and whimsy. The color choices make me think of rainy days in Oregon—gray sky with a forest of greens.

    Fiona Ackerman your work is scrumptious and mouth watering. It appears to be watercolor although the mention here is that these are paintings. Sturdy like painting and delicate like watercolor is a nice mixture, whatever the case may be it’s a real pleasure to see your work sparkling and refreshing, gentle and at the same time rugged. It reminds me of the lollipops of my childhood and the frozen icies of my long ago childhood summers. I am reminded remotely of Murakami who has that same kind of color and youthful beauty in his work, both of you are in good company with each other. A world of success to you Fiona!

“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!
