international tee - £35


FOR THE LONGEST TiME i HAVE ALWAYS BEEN QUiTE A FiRM BELiVER THAT STREET SKATE

PHOTOS HAVE ALWAYS LOOKED SO MUCH BETTER THAN PARK ONES. AND TO A CERTAiN

DEGREE i STiLL BELiEVE THAT HOWEVER THROUGH THE PRODUCTiON OF THiS MAGAZINE

I HAVE BEEN A LOT MORE INCLINED TO TAKE PARK PHOTOS AS THERE IS LITTLE TO NO

STREET SPOTS IN MY AREA, AND I CAN’T SAY THAT I AM NOT HAPPY WITH HOW THEY HAVE

TURNED OUT. THANKFULLY THE VERY SKiLLED SKATERS iN THiS MAGAZiNE HAVE DONE AN

EXCELLENT JOB AT MAKiNG THESE PHOTOS COME OUT REALLY WELL AND i AM EXCiTED TO

SHARE EVERYTHiNG i HAVE BEEN WORKiNG ON FOR THE LAST HOWEVER LONG i HAVE BEEN

GRAFTiNG!

I HAVE NEVER REALLY BEEN AN ACADEMiC PERSON. I HAVE ALWAYS REACHED FOR A

PAiNTBRUSH OR A CAMERA OR CHiSELL. iVE ALWAYS FOUND LETTiNG MY HUNGER

TO CREATE HAS WORKED BEST FOR ME AND HOPEFULLY WiLL CONTiNUE TO SO i CAN

MAKE A LiViNG OFF OF iT. WHEN THE OPPERTUNiTY ROSE TO ME DECiDiNG WHAT i

WANTED TO CREATE FOR MY FiNAL PiECE i WAS SURE i WANTED SOMETHiNG THAT

HAD MEANiNG. WHAT BETTER TO DO THAN TO DO THE THiNGS i LOVE MOST;

CREATiNG, HANGiNG OUT WiTH MY BEST FRiENDS AND OF COURSE SKATEBOARDiNG.

THE TiMELiNE OF THESE PHOTOS iS ACROSS RUFFLY 3-4 WEEKS OF SKATiNG THROUGH MY

EASTER BREAK. WHEN YOU GET A CAMERA OUT iT ADDS A PERCULiAR PRESSURE TO THE

TRiCK. YOU KNOW THE CAMERAS THERE AND ALTHOUGH iT DOESNT SEEM TO BOTHER ANY

ONE iM SHOOTiNG i FEEL iT

PLAYS iN THE BACK OF THEiR

MiND AND ACTS LiKE A SMALL

BURDEN TO GET PASSED.

ALTHOUGH NO ONE HAS

ADMiTTED iT TO ME i KNOW

SOME OF THESE TRiCKS

ARE FiRST TRY TRiCKS FOR

THEM AND YET iT TOOK THEM

20 TRiES. i LiKE TO THiNK

ABOUT THiS CONCEPT A LOT.

THE THOUGHT OF HOW YOU

PERFOM iS VERY DEPENDANT

ON YOUR MENTAL STATE. IF

YOU FEEL GOOD OR LOOK-

GOOD, ALL THE WAY TO iF YOU

LANDED THAT TRiCK EARLiER.

WAS iT CLEAN? DiD YOU TOE

DRAG? ALL THESE LiTTLE

FACTORS CAN HONESTLY

THROW YOU OFF OF ONE OR

ALL TRiCKS iN THAT SESSiON.

THE MORE ADVACNED YOU GET

iN SKATEBOARDiNG THE MORE

YOU DEVELOP WAYS TO TRY

BREAK THESE MENTAL BLOCKS

AND YOU LEARN SO MUCH

ABOUT YOUSELF iN THE

PROCESS.

FOr this collection i was sure i wanted to producde some of my most authentic

work yet. I wanted to persure this contempory grunge style which my

brand is very centred around. I love this style and really enjoy making this stlye

of art. i like this collection a lot and i think it exhibts some interesting artwork i have

made.



KEEP LOOKING FORWARD IN THE WORDS OF THE

CREATOR;

“KEEP LOOKING FORWARD DEVELOPED FROM THE IDEA

OF A PLACE I COULD DUMP ALL MY CREATIVE WORK AT

THE TIME TOT KEEP AS SORT OF ARCHIVE AND TO LOOK

BACK ON FOR INSPIRATION. NAUTRALLY IT EMBODIES

SKATEBOARDING AND TEENAGE CULTURE AS THATS

WHAT IM PREDOMINANTELY EXPOSED TO IN MY DAY TO

DAY LIFE. SIMPLY PUT, KLF IS MY ATTEMPT TO SHARE MY

WORK WITH OTHER PEOPLE, AND A WAY TO FIND AN

OUTWARD EXPRESSION”

AFTER LISTENING TO JOE THE CREATER OF KLF I GAINED

A STRONG FEELING OF PASSION TOWARDS HIS BRAND. I

WANTED TO FIND OUT MORE SO I ASKED HIM SOME

QUESTIONS REGARDING HIS ACCOUNT.

“SO JOE AFTER BEiNG QUiTE UP TO DATE WiTH THE KLF

ACCOUNT i HAVE NOTiCED YOU ARE BEGiNNiNG TO

START TO CREATE CLOTHES AND PiCTURE YOUR BRAND

AS MORE OF A BRAND. WHAT THiNGS ARE iNFLUENCiNG

YOU TO MAKE THiS DECiSiON AND ARE YOU iNTERESTED

iN TO MORE THAN JUST STANDARD MERCH?”

“WHAT iNSPiRED ME THE MOST iS THAT KLF WAS JUST

EXiSiTiNG iN THE DiGiTAL WORLD RATHER THAN THE

PHYSiCAL WORLD. IT FELT WEiRD THAT i HAD SOME-

THiNG THAT NEVER REALLY EXiSTED. THE iDEA WiTH

MAKiNG THE TEE SHiRTS WAS JUST TRYiNG TO FiND A

WAY OF DOiNG THAT. I’VE NEVER REALLY FUCKED WiTH

THE iDEA OF ZiNES FOR SOME REASON, ALTHOUGH i

HAVE BEEN WANTiNG TO DO A BiG PHOTO BOOK OF

JUST SKATE CULTURE FOR SOME TiME, BUT i THiNK

NOWS NOT THE TiME TO DO iT. MAYBE AFTER UNi iT’D

FEEL MORE APPROPRiATE. I HAVENT THOUGHT TOO FAR

YET HONESTLY ABOUT THE FUTURE OF MAKiNG iT iNTO

MORE OF A BRAND BUT TEE SHiRTS ARE A DEFiNiTE

START. iT’D BE TRiCKY MAKiNG MORE iNTRiCATE

UNiQUE PiECES AS i’D WANT EVERYTHiNG MADE iN

HOUSE BUT WHO KNOWS.

”HAVE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT SHOOTiNG SOMETHiNG

AWAY FROM YOUTH/ SKATE CULTURE?”


“yeh definitely, i have so many ideas for fashion campaigns/

editorials/ shoots but just not really the facilities to make

them a reality... it’s something i think think i’ll try to do soon,

but i think they’ll need to be executed perfectly or it’ll end up

looking a bit tacky. I’m used to just taking photos of everday

life things so can’t say im an expert in things like studio

liughting, but i want to learn.”

“Yeah man you should deinitely try to learn and expand out in

every direction you can. I suppose that coincides with the

name of your account keep looking forward. When will your

clothes be available and where can any of the readers look to

buy some?”

“yeah bro, i really hope to get those skills on lock because

thats really what you need to make a carer out of it. The

clothes will be available to buy via dm on instagram @keeplookingforward.”
