I first became aware of Blake Johnson a month or so ago through his part in Illegal Civilization 2 and immediately became a fan. His style is like a blend of a young Sean Sheffey mixed with that classic Venice Beach style made famous by Eric Dressen and the OG Dogtown crew. Check out Blake’s welcome to the team video from Santa Cruz – I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of him in the future.

Al Davis has a kickstarter for his new photo project which involves developing 100 rolls of films that he’s shot over the years and creating a book and art show from the material. Seems like a worthy project to donate to if you’ve got a few extra bucks and want to support.

Mass Appeal has a really cool feature on Spencer Fujimoto that covers his history and his skateboarding inspired jewelry line El Senor that’s definitely worth a watch.

High fashion’s obsession with skateboarding seems to be at an all-time high right now as evidenced in this new behind-the-scenes clip from Alex Olson’s shoot with British fashion photographer Glen Luchford for M Le Monde.
