    quite egon schiele-y, nice stuff :]

  • so f*in good

  • yes it remind me to schiele too!!!

  • One of my all time favourite artists. Her line work is direct and to the point in physicality but meanders around the subject. Amazing.

  • Christian

    why don’t we have the like button anymore? 🙁
    and the sketches are great! 🙂

    • the site traffic right now is too high to accomodate the facebook like button – i wish i could still have it, when we move over to a new server we will be able to bring it back

  • I’m in love with line, especially these lines.

  • Giimo

    the last one is really sick !

  • Grotesque! these remind me a lot of my own work, these are far more subtle and delicate than my own, they manage to get across a sense of grotesqueness without being gory or disgusting.

  • Ellie

  • Thitima Sukwatthana

“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!
