I've been part of the Honey Art show before, I did product photography workshops for free, to help people utilise their equipment like phones and lighting to their best ability but to be IN the show felt amazing, I met so many wonderful people and to be alongside the artists was really a boost for me, they are all so talented (in the open video I got every single piece in) It's always such a safe place to be yourself, no judgment and it feels like we are part of a little community. What Honey art show does is incredible, definitely check their pages!
The open night was so good, loads of people turned up and we even had LK poet in, which was an eye opener for me, she's awesome and now I like poetry.
With my piece I wanted to create something I've not done before. I'm always attracted to collage, I've made some digitally using only my own images and sketches but never really taken it anywhere, just used it as a source of research or inspiration. I started using my skate photos or images I've taken (or taken of me) on my little skate adventures to make collages and editing them in photoshop into cool compositions.
Someone asked me at the show "what's behind the lamination and repetition?" I just said that I guess that’s my personality and history coming through, I was diagnosed with OCD a few years back and repetition clears my mind, it's therapeutic and I just really love layers.
The comments that were written on the collages themselves aren't good or bad, they are basically just conversations or interesting things people have said to me that I remember. Some are kind of terrible though.
I was a little nervous to do a piece about skating because I am pretty shit at it, I've only been at it 4 months - it's been wild already. But that’s what skating and graff taught me - its fine to be nervous but you have to just get the fuck on with it, they boosted my confidence loads and pretty much consumed my life. You take lessons from this stuff - I don't compare myself to others so much anymore with anything in life.

SCREECH is an independent, non-profit, Bristol based skateboard / art & design zine. Dedicated to photography, illustration & design that explores the culture, people and creativity of skateboarding.
SCREECH is available at select spots as a printed zine.

I picked up the first (hopefully not only! As is crossed out on the cover) issue of Bristol based Screech Mag recently, having liked the look of the cover and format of it.
The zine crams in quite a lot of visual-based content into relatively small 32 pages, no doubt helped by the unorthodox long format of the book. Starting things off is a photo feature on the work of Andy Martinez, with photos of Patrick Merryfield, Matt Bush and Morgan Crane. These photos look really cool in black and white, with strong flash, plenty of fisheye and night/dusk slow shutter shots. Definitely keen to see more from Andy.
Next up is a cool spread showcasing Joe Thorpe's decks modified into clocks, a variation on the cut down deck that I personally haven't seen before. Throughout the zine is a strong design that really holds each spread together in different ways, seen here with the use of text across Joe's clock.
Following this is a photo feature on the decidedly street skating leanings of photographer Callum Painter, seen below with a particularly rad photo and layout combo of Josh Arnott. Printed sideways on the page, this forces you to interact with the book properly, moving from a passive viewer into an active one. This approach is used throughout the book which makes for a really good experience viewing it!
The next feature is a rad one on Harry Chilcott's illustration, and changes things up once more with a black background. Perhaps this is out of necessity due to Harry's use of white line work in alot of his illustrations rather than a conscious design. Either way, it serves to break up the book, encouraging the viewer focus on Harry's work a little longer.
Lastly, we have a couple of spreads hosting Alice Lawrence's atmospheric night shots, based loosely around the M32 DIY spot in Bristol. Particular highlights of this one include a stairs and handrail shot straight out of Silent Hill and the below wallride around a post performed by Finbar.
If you'd like to pick up the zine, you can get one for free (well 1p) from the Screech site here, or get one from venues around Bristol including Fifty Fifty, Campus Pool, The Surrey Vaults or The Graff Cafe.
Keen to see issue 2!
