Skating with Shadows: "Peter Brings the Shadow to Life"

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
A beautifully shot skate video, with the title taken from a line in an essay about Peter Pan, Joe Pease has created an alternate reality by focusing on the shadow as opposed to the person skating. After awhile, it becomes like a symphony of shapes and movement. The Nick Cave helps.

NYC Skateboarding in the 1960s by Bill Eppridge

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 21, 2012
A nice touch of nostalgia this morning, as we came across Bill Eppridge's skateboarding photos he took in New York City during the 1960s Some of the photos here almost suggest that Bill handed boards to unsuspecting visitors to Central Park, but others, like this skinny suit hipster, seem to have a good skill.

In Illustration: The Work of Brian Romero

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 27, 2011
Skateboard graphics aren't anything new to talk about— nor are they, frankly, anything to get excited about in the last few years. With most companies slapping down poorly designed logos or half-assed stoner ideas that nobody understands— it's reassuring to see well-rendered illustration and a story being told within the confines of a narrow 32-inch work area.
