Content Update – Jope Cover

Jope has just finished an amazing cover in biro for issue 3. It’s so complex it hurts. For an idea of the style see the sketch below, which he used as a test. Imagine the complexity and style multiplied by 10 and you might be getting somewhere close. Thanks Jope.

Issue 3 Content Update – Asa Sporbert

In readiness for issue 3 we’ve got a sweet wallpaper collab lined up with one of its featured artists, Asa Sporbert. His work appeared in issue 1 as a feature called Ikonoklastik (see below). He hasn’t lost any of that psychadelic flavour, lots of which will be on display in issue 3. For the wallpaper he’s created Tunnel Vision, an ‘all seeing eye’ to rock on your desktop.

Make sure you grab the download from our homepage when issue 3 is released.

Site Unseen – The Strange New Times

If you’re yet to catch the longboard bug then this site might act as a vector for infection. Great news, gear, riders, events and vids from the US. There’s some serious shit going down in the contests these days. Check out Kyle Chin (below) during his run in the recent Maryhill Festival of Speed.

Look out for photos of the Amartist editors bombing hills in issue 3.
