Sean Cliver to Release New Signed Prints This Saturday

Attention art heads: Sean Cliver’s latest 11-color print will be dropping on Saturday at noon EST via the Strangelove site. “Naturist” is a satire on the age-old advice of imaging people around you in their underwear when public speaking, or naked when walking through Disneyland if you have Cliver’s level of social anxiety. Of course, he explains it much more cleverly:

Prude or Never Nude? If so, this print probably isn’t for you—and that’s okay. Not everything is for everybody. I mean, if it was, don’t you think that would make for a rather boring and bland world? Rhetorically questioning, of course, because it’s not like you can leave a comment in response or anything. But if you’re curious as to the inspiration behind this design, I guess you could say it all goes back to that bullshit line about how if you’re ever nervous about speaking in front of a crowd of people you should just picture them all in their underwear. Me, I get the shakes just going out in public period, so a trip for me to the “Happiest Place on Earth” is more akin to going waterboarding in Guantanamo Bay. How do I survive? Imagineer that everyone around me is parading about in their birthday suits (although, admittedly, I could have gone way more hog wild with the tattoos, what with this supposed to be representative of Orange County and all). 

These limited edition, signed, and numbered prints are a steal at $80.

Watch How Old Decks Transformed into Custom Benches in this Video

Watch Welcome Skate Shop staff and their friends turn old decks into custom benches in this video released by Vans as part of their efforts to promote artists and creativity. Welcome Skate Shop is based in Leeds, UK.

What’s great about this bench is that you can remove the top (the one made with old decks) and now you have a skateable bench. It has storage too so you have a place for your new skateboards or whatever needs storing.

A skateboarder may need to replace their decks in a few months to a year, depending on how hard they grind and how often they ride. Probably millions of skateboards are discarded each year and most of them end up in landfills.

This is just one of the ways worn-out decks can be repurposed. There are also initiatives to recycle and repurpose old wheels to keep them out of landfills.

It’s Go Skateboarding Day on June 21. We’ve sniffed around the local skate scenes and rounded up the activities that were organized by skate shops, skate brands, and skating communities for this year’s skateboarding holiday.

How Go Skateboarding Day began

Go Skateboarding Day was proposed by Don Brown and formally established by the International Association of Skateboard Companies in 2004 to promote skateboarding and make it more accessible to everyone.

It coincides with the longest day of the year, and it is by design. Since June 21 is the longest day of the year in Continental USA, it means everyone can spend more time skating outside.

What started out as a few small skate sessions in some parts of the US became a worldwide celebration.
