New Work

House sleeves for Artizan Records:

Identity for new Shoreditch venue East Village (more to come):


Finally picked this dvd up courtesy of the one and only Sean Goff.

Whatever your thoughts on Steve Rocco this documentary is essential viewing for anyone with a passing interest in skateboarding. Like Dogtown and the Z Boys, 'TMWSTW' has skateboarding as its background but really it's a story about people and a culture. Rocco and World Industries meant a lot to me when I was younger, I would have bought anything they put their stamp on - which is probably why many have a problem with them. For me though, World were exciting, anarchic and perfectly of the time...and it was all down to the man like Rocco.

New Year Hot Picks

A few nice pieces to kick off the new year...

Porter x Beams is first up - nice wallets (not that I have anything to put in them as it's January). Match with your Visvims and feater/bird skull head dress for max effect:

I know I've talked about the Rocking Jelly Bean Erostika tee in the fanzine but it's out again and there's a hoodie version too. There's also a vinyl toy to coincide with the release but why a grown ass man would want to have that I don't know:

I have a feeling Gourmet TRAINERS (never the S word) will be big this year. Taking major reference from the classic AJ back cat they manage to update in a classy way and put a new spin on things - watch out for them:

Not big or clever, but I like this new (?) colour of the Air Trainer. Out now in the states:

Stussy hit the new year hard with a Year of the Rat themed selection. Nice old school freshness, and it's called Stussy Rat Patrol which is only ever gonna be good:

Finally, seeing as it's getting proper cold and I haven't mentioned Supreme yet...here's their Fur Trooper hat. Classical:

Middle Class News

New aquisitions:

Limited print by my mate and proper illustrator/designer/artist Tony Burrill (thanks Ben)

And my new pride and joy, a Roy Lichtenstein screened paper plate to really compound my middle class twat credentials.
