The next issues of Little White Lies and Huck will look remarkably good on your newsagent's shelves: the magazines' covers are two parts of a single illustration by Geoff McFetridge...
The Church Of London, the creative agency founded by Rob Longworth, Danny Miller and Paul Willoughby, publishes, art directs and designs both film magazine Little White Lies and surf, skate and snowboarding style title, Huck.
The forthcoming issues feature Spike Jonze's Where The Wild Things Are in some way: the director is interviewed in Huck (hence he appears on the cover alonside some rather intrusive "wild things"), while Little White Lies is wholly dedicated to the new film, based on Maurice Sendak's children's book (main character, Max, features on their cover).
Danny Plotnick is an underground filmmaker from San Francisco who made such masterpieces as Skate Witches, I, Socky, Dumbass from Dundas, Death Sled II, Sugarbutts, Pillow Talk and so many more that have been compiled and released on the Warts and All DVD. Plotnicks films have been screened at The Museum of Modern Art, IFC and other notable places. He's currently still making films, blogging and running the excellent Podcast Nest of Vipers that's This American Life meets The Best Damn Sports Show.

Nostalgia on Wheels is a website that features nostalgic images of things that have to do with, you guessed it, wheels. It's mostly skateboards, motorcycles and fashion relating to those scenes and it's well worth your time. Below is what you can expect to find.
The Solitary Arts is a skateboard company started by Geoff McFetridge & Yong-Ki Chang. For a $1 and a self addressed stamped envelope, they'll send you some stickers. For $2 and a self-addressed stamped envelope, they'll send you their newspaper. For everything else, whether you skate or collect artsy stuff, buying their stuff is probably a good investment.
