  • Wow that is pretty but disturbing

  • So… I’ve seen it all. Well illustrated though.

  • hmmm! ( love it when art makes me ‘hmmm’!) and i love the small details like the scar/mark on the animals faces in the first two and the thumb extended over the insect’s face in the third drawing. makes it personal somehow.

  • #2 is the cover for Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffitti’s new single!

  • me

    Flippin’ heck! Pretty distrubing but amusing.

  • Umm wow, not really sure what to say about these, except that these give me some kind of gut reaction that I just can’t classify.

  • Joel

    What is this I don’t even.

    Seriously though, it’s kind of cool in a “feel-slightly-dirty-looking-at-it” kind of way.

  • I have a warrant for Chow’s arrest!

  • Finally! I’m glad I’m not alone!

  • I love the girl and the cat
    maybe is not the best but it is conceptually great

  • The girl and cat make me happy.

  • Pamela

    Haha I love them! I was a bit wierded out at first but now I am very intrigued.

  • Cool drawings. Do you know if these are on toned paper, or just photoshopped after the fact?

  • breathtaking!

  • oh man! I’ve been looking to find who this artist is for forever! I saw it on someone’s facebook page, but all we could find on the internets was some Christian zealot talking shish about the content. haha. yay! I love this.

    the link above is to my buddy’s work. his illustration is fully stippled, pen + ink. he did this illustration of himself making out with a giraffe back in 07/08. it’s really strange cause its the SAME EXACT IDEA.

    makes me wonder if we all have the same random dreams. twilight zone man.

“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!
