I first heard about Hobbyist Magazine through their collaboration with Carhartt. It sounded like a really cool idea. Photos of people’s hobbies. I also read an interview with Pierre Hourquet in Lodown magazine and after this I decided to buy my own copy of the magazine to see what it is like. Initially it was a blog that turned in to a magazine. You can still buy copies at Lozenup and Flatspot.
In December 2011 DQM put on a skateboard photography show called Pave The Way. My friend Steve went along and picked up these postcards for me. The show featured Mofo, C.R. Stecyk III, Lance Dawes and Tobin Yelland. Each one of the photographers has a postcard in this set. It sounded like a great show, I wish I could have gone along to it.
When I went to stay in NYC last year, my friend Steve gave me this little book called Wrenched. They have interviewed various people from NYC and asked them about their favourite spots about town. So if you want to know where Gino Iannucci‘s favourite restaurant is or where Dave Ortiz‘s favourite park is, then this is the book for you. I checked out a few of these spots when I was over. I don’t know where Steve got this from, but it is pretty cool and there are some great portraits in it of all the people interviewed.
Supreme have produced a small catalogue showcasing some of their Fall-Winter 2012 range. You can pick this up in store. I wonder if this means that they will no longer be producing their magazine, which would be a great shame as I always found the magazine an interesting read and also the items you got with it were always interesting.
I managed to pick up this great little book of 10 post cards that Vans produced. Greg Hunt has supplied all the photographs. It’s a nice little free thing. It was available at the Vans exhibition in Slam City Skates and all good Vans stockists.
I’m really enjoying this short music video by Greg Hunt. I really like how it has that double exposure look. The music is great too. Check out Duane Pitre’s site for more info on how to order the record.
Greg Hunt goes through his archives for Skateboarder magazine. This made me want to log off and start doing more stuff. I feel like I waste so much time on the Internet when I could be doing something more productive. If you are interested in seeing more of Greg Hunt’s stuff, then check out this Vans Syndicate blog about him.
