color magazine

I'm so proud o f him!....my husband Roger's artwork is featured on the cover of the new issue of Color Magazine, a skateboard magazine based out of Vancouver. He has been working on a series of art prints, made by stamping paper with his collection of baseplates he has accumulated over the past 20 years. (For those of you asking "what is a baseplate?" – it's the rectangular metal part of the skateboard's trucks that gets bolted onto the bottom of the skateboard deck). The stamps illustrate the impact skateboarding has had on his life as well as his literal impact on a skateboard. You can check out more of his work here on his website: www.crookedwalker.com.

Oh yes I should have mentioned where to get the mag. You can find it most skate stores and major bookstores in Canada. And I believe specialty magazine shops and Barnes and Noble in the US.
