A Portrait of Pro Skater Brian Anderson by Jon Humphries
Brian Anderson is one of, if not, my favorite skater. This video is a cool little look into his life right now as a skater and human being. He talks about skating, and there is skate footage, but the best part is seeing how he’s just a dope guy.
This guy is truly something else. I haven’t seen skill or creativity like this on a skateboard since Mullen or Daewon Song. And I’d be brave enough to say he’s knocking on their door. Every video I’ve seen from him he takes his talent up a level, and it’s not looking like there’s a limit for him.
The video is filmed, edited, and directed by Brett Novak who has worked with Kilian before. His shooting/editing style make Kilian’s boardwork look even classier. These aren’t your typical skate footage shorts, these are short film masterpieces. This is high art (which, ironically, some of the tricks are performed on). Novak is the Chris Nolan to Martin’s DiCaprio. They have a chemistry that shows in the end product.
Are these guys not huge yet? Or am I out of the loop?
Why do these have to be coming out when I’m broke? Story of my life, I swear.
Supreme teams up with Vans once again to drop some of the cleanest kicks I’ve geeked over in a while. I’m a sucker for floral print, and this pattern strikes a chord with me elsewhere. Not only is it a dope floral pattern, but it’s also a floral pattern derived from a painting used by the band New Order for their album Power, Corruption & Lies. The album cover was designed by Peter Saville who is most known for his design work for Joy Division, New Order, and Factory Records.
So my sneaker/fashion nerd sensibilities are being touched upon, and my love (obsession) for music is being abused.
Thanks Supreme. Couldn’t have dropped these a week ago when I had money?
I’ve never really been a big Simpsons fan, but I do respect their longevity and their impact on pop culture (and their satire of it). With that being said, I love these Cruzers! If I could get one it would deifnitely be the one on the far right. The colors are perfect, the shape is dope, and the Bart/Crossbones image is sweet.
These will definitely appeal to the skater heads, and art scene people just as much. They’re going to be as collectible as they are skate-able (or skateable, not too sure of that one).
