This statement may sound ridiculous, but we wouldn’t print it if we didn’t think it was true: Skateboarding has always been a guide to what’s cool in the world. Since the early days of street skating, each generation of skateboarders has unwittingly educated the tastes and fashions of the next generation. Growing up they were like our collective big brothers and sisters, putting us on to what had some flavor and what sort of sucked.

For our second entry of One Sheet, we hit up Kevin “Spanky” Long, who we’ve interviewed in the past and have had a soft spot for since his early days on Emerica and Baker. Judging from his insane Etch-A-Sketch art and trippy Instagram skate edits, we know Kevin is a creative type, so we figured he’d have a lot of good recommendations to pass your way.

    Having a dog, especially living in the city is kinda whack.
    You aren’t doing yourself, or the dog any favors by making it sit and dwell in your shitty (little?) apartment. Only to get bummed when it tears up your couch and shits on your rug. Like what do you expect when you have a wild animal crammed up in your area. Get a snake like a real human.

    His unique editings of pics made me rise from the dead of becoming an artist, i started taking pictures of my friends and people around me and editing them to a silly, absurd and hilarious faces. Im really happy to see my friends’ reactions to the pieaces that i did for them. It made me feel alive as an artist. Now I’m slowly doing pieces from other art mediums. Thanks Spanky :))))
