Dear friends & dark corners of the internet,
How’s it going? Work still mind-numbing? Anyone win the lotto yet?
Well, whether you’re feeling like a reborn health nut or a pile of shit, we got something that will hopefully put a grin on your face. We’ve made a zine filled with skate puzzles, mazes, coloring pages, industry jokes and a bunch of other activities to take your mind off whatever you got going on at the moment, and we’re calling it Jenkem’s Big Stupid Activity Book.
With 22 pages of gags and illustrations from some of our friends and favorite artists, this book will easily get you through a tough afternoon with your relatives or a job that’s so damn boring that you’re actually sick of Youtube.

We’ve never done anything like this before and probably won’t do it again (because the margins are so bad), so grab one for you or a friend as a skate stocking stuffer for the holidays.
