  • The attention to detail and space-age subject matter remind me of Rosenquist, even though these are b+w.

    • craig

      totally reminded me of robert longo. but i’m not sure if it reminded me of it in a good way. regardless nice hand skills . ..

        After a quick amount of research, (looking at the 2 artist sites) you can see the dates of the exhibitions where these works first appeared – Jonathan Zawada 2008, Robert Longo 2009. Blogs tend to take a little while to catch up on the latest works… If Longo’s were posted before Zawada’s, doesn’t mean his were first.

      • blame it on the collective unconcious

  • gorgeous work, I love how he mixes elements

  • makes me feel i need to practice more drawing!

  • Hey hey! Mario Galaxy FTW!

    M.C. Escher lost in space 🙂

    yeah, definitely a lot of great stuff going on here. A couple of these, however, aren’t given room to breath on their own, outside of the Longo comparison.

  • oceanchild

    i love the use of the helmet as a source of reflection. very cool.

  • cool stuff :]

  • Urrrica

    The last one just knocked my conceptual cock back in on itself. Nice!

  • Ben

    The picture that appeared to be a bunzi tree with the streak really fit the picture well

“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!
