This time I didn’t end up cutting myself in the lino cut process.
Majorly stoked on that fact and the result.
This was printed onto Orange paper, scanned and the orange was changed to my chosen Pantone Colour.
716 Solid Coated.
I used the colour replacement tool and used the Pantone library for the result.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. Boom.
Fairly stoked on my boards and being very close to finishing university.
Unfortunately I messed up big time with my final zine so I will have to print it out and photo it for this…
Whoops. Big Whoops.
This always makes me giggle.
My friend showed it me, this young lad loves Texas, Nigel Farage and guns.
Not a full shilling…
Its a pretty incredible photo.
Joe Gavin Media.
Joe has been a huge part of my life, he inspired me hugely in skateboarding and in life in general.
He has been like my big brother and recently we have been working on music video’s he has been making.
I am the assistant (or as he likes to put it, “run around bitch”)
but its all good I really enjoy it and at every given opportunity I have my say about ideas and make suggestions.
His feedback after my first shoot was good and I enjoyed it.
He later sent me a text saying “I got the Job” and when we discussed it he said I was a good run around and he’d give me more work. Plus he said I can help with filming duties and in a scene on the new video he needs some fake posters being made which is my job.
So my list of the new video’s we will be making is;
A Rodney P video, Jehst Video, Broke ‘n’ English video and a the DRS Video I just worked on which is to do with Heavy Feet.
I’ll Post a photo from the shoot.
This is my new cousin Charlotte Redding!
She’s already given us a right shock being in out of hospital for being ill for the last week!
Tha’ naughty little blighter eh’?
Causing us some stress already, it won’t be long till she will be bringing home some skinny spotty guy who isn’t even worthy of polishing her shoes & a whole other world of stress will be opened.
Anyway, I’m trying to say she will grow up fast now I’m growing old, sentimental old me…..
Mike Carroll skating to the Beastie Boys and Del Tha Funky Homosapian!

If you have never seen Ed skate or seen Kids by Harmony Korine or watched the Beautiful losers you’re a sucker.
Sorry, I’m just in skate mode. Ed Templeton calls people a sucker.
Ed’s skating and art direction for the company Toy Machine is second to none, a true individual in all aspects.
It was Ed’s skating and art that led me to the documentary called “The Beautiful Losers” which follows artists who were nobody’s taking over the world.
Which inspired me, I want to start a gang of artistic skateboarders and take over the world now too.
Thirdly it led me to one of the strangest but most brilliant films ever “Kids”.
It features Gonz, drowning cats, Metal music, Madonna and general strangeness.
Watch them and look them up.
