New Shapes coming next week!
You should probably watch Lee Yankou’s new Baby Blue part on Thrasher magazine now, I tried to embed it so it was right there, but Thrasher made it difficult for some reason.
Click this pic, its worth it!
Ah, why not, thought I'd do the "Skate your age" thing. Missed out last year cos all our filmers were out of town. Rafael braved 100 degree LA heat to bring you this.
Fat Jim has been filming the skateboarding antics of Tom Day for nearly ten years now, he went through all this footage and put this Tom Day Mega mix together. Expect unusual spots, lots of cobblestones and some unpredictable skateboarding from Lincolnshires finest and our newest Pro.
Let me tell you something. I've never been prouder of this little company.
20 years deep, and I've gotten to sponsor my favorite skateboarders and work with good friends and people I admire greatly on art. Sure there's been heartache along the way, people have quit, I've had to kick people off, there's been a few arguments here and there, but we're still here.
Blowing your own horn is not really something that's done where I'm from. People are very very quick to tell you that it's not going to work, who's gonna buy that? and all the rest. I didn't listen to any of them. I did it my own way. 20 years later Heroin is still here, last season we just dropped an official Texas Chainsaw collaboration, this season we turned Tom Day Pro. Awesome human being Craig Questions Scott did a really great series of boards for us. I got OG Heroin conspirators to do boards (Simon True and French) as well as Hirotton and Enemy. Talking of OG Heroin, we put out a never seen before Chris Pulman Alumni board that was sketched up in 2005.
I love where we're at right now. Thank you for getting us here.
Tom Day personifies what riding for Heroin is about, doing your own thing and not caring what anyone else thinks, in Toms case its finding or making grimy spots in Northern England. Who doesn't love that?
Its been quite a journey for Tom and Heroin. He's been on so many trips and put out loads of ads and great video parts for us. It makes complete sense that he's our newest pro.
Just put my new Cabin Sketches zine on Etsy. Link above. Its a fun little 16 page zine about how I started drawing the cabins of Green Valley Lake in the San Bernardino mountains of California.
Just about to head down to Vista and start setting up my "Hasta La Vista" show. Should be a fun one. I'm releasing a new Cabin screen print, edition of 30, and my new Cabin sketches zine. The fun starts tomorrow night at Booze Brothers brewery, and there's live music from LOOM. I'll be showing a lot of original art from Heroin boards and stuff I've done for other brands too, there'll be originals for sale, prints, and more. Hope to see you there.
Made a little edit to hype the fact that our Texas Chainsaw boards are back in stock. Officially licensed collab with the folks who made the original 1974 film. Hyped, get em before they sell out again!
Craig went on holiday recently, where to? Tenerife? No, Magaloof? No, Palestine, a country with its fair share of troubles, what did they ever do to deserve Craig? Poor bastards. Laurie Stearn went with him and shot a bit of footage on his phone, I threw an edit together, Enjoy.
