  • This one is really solid.

    Hey! Thanks for posting my remake. It’s cool to see it next to the original.

    Just a little note… Van Gogh did a few different versions of the painting. The one that I based it on is the one at the Chicago Institute.

    Here’s a link to it:

    I don’t want to be too picky, but in each version, the colors are a little different. So Jeff, if you could post this one instead, it will make the colors make a bit more sense. Thanks!

    • switched it out for you

  • super solid!

  • This one is so dope.

  • This is definitely a winner!

    I love Van Gogh and this is GREAT!

  • Lauren

    My favorite by far!!!!!! It is such a great remake!

  • you should have the tops of the paintings coming off the walls though, it would definitely add some authenticity

  • this one looks like a lot of work!

“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!
