The Renaissance

Alongside this comic, I’m also interested in doing some renaissance style paintings of skaters. Maybe it’s just because I’m reading so much about the (ahem) heavy hitters of Italy, but does anyone else see any resemblance between this painting by Raphael and the cover for Bones Brigade video 3?



Yeah, maybe it’s just me. So that’s something else I’ll be doing. Whilst finding the photo above I found a nice article from swindle magazine so be sure to give that a read.

I wrote down some ideas for my comic, parts of “my skateboard life” that’ll be in the finished thing. Can you read this?


and just for good measure, here’s Tony Hawk at Del Mar Skate ranch way back when.

    I want this comic to be at least 48 pages long to do it justice.
    I know you’ve got it in you!
