Club Mumble

I was recently asked by my friend Bob Kronbauer to be a regular contributor over on his new site, Club Mumble. Bob is the talented guy behind the Little Giants series which I mentioned before and I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of his latest project.

To give you an idea of the Club Mumble roster, let me just rattle off a few names: Michael Leon, Thomas Campbell, Don Pendleton, Angela Boatwright, Geoff McFetridge, Andrew Pommier, Kevin Lyons, Todd Bratrud… you get the idea, this list is no joke. If you’re into the art/skate scene you’ll want to bookmark it immediately.

Very Nearly Almost / VNA Mag

The good folks over at VNA Magazine (UK) sent over their latest issue and it’s a great little publication! VNA stands for “Very Nearly Almost” and could be a reference to narrowly escaping the long arm of the law as the mag primarily documents street art.

Karen Caldicott

Back in 2002 I came across a great issue of Shift Magazine (a now defunct Canadian mag similar to Wired) which featured clay busts of the whole Simpsons family. I loved them so much, I immediately tore out the pages and stuck them on my wall. They are actually still on my wall, and last month I was thinking about scanning them to put them up here but I realised I didn’t even know who had created them.

A few days ago – totally out of the blue – Karen Caldicott dropped me a link to her clay work and when I loaded up her site I was shocked – I couldn’t believe it. She was the one who had made the clay sculptures! I’ve been a fan of hers all this time and didn’t know it! Read More

Twenty2wo Magazine

Adam over at Twenty2wo just released the second issue of Twenty2wo magazine. You can view the magazine online, download it, and even purchase a printed version. He has some really great content (I have linked his posts a couple times) and applaud the extra effort he is putting in to make Twenty2wo a unique and inspiring experience for his readers.

If you are looking for daily photography/illustration inspiration Twenty2wo is a good place to start. A quick scroll of the blog and I’m sure it’ll be in your Google Reader in no time. I’ve stuck a few more images from Twenty2wo Mag #2 below:

Geoff McFetridge & Huck!

Geoff McFetridge and Huck Magazine just released a great little t-shirt! You better hurry up and buy if you wanna snag one of the 75 tees. Huck Magazine also sat down with McFetridge for an interview. “It seems clear to me that all tricks are inside you just as much as all drawings are inside you. Everything else on the outside is just in the way.” – McFetridge, latest HUCK.

Hit more to see the tee and some more drawings!

Bless You!

Sneeze Magazine is about to change the magazine game – not overnight, mind you – slowly – they want to “grow with you, city by city, issue by issue”. So what makes them special? Their distribution method for starters – you won’t be able to grab this off your favourite shop’s shelf, Sneeze is aiming to land a “flagship” news box in the busiest spot of your city. That’s it. One box. How cool is that?

If you live in Vancouver you’ll find this little guy at the corner of Water & Abbot Street. New York’s got a “flagship” at Lafayette & Prince Street. Los Angeles location is coming. Read More
