Spring’s photo shooting

by vecho Wednesday April 2nd, 2014

Many collaborators and friends have gathered again for the now classic photo shooting with photo master Giuliano Berarducci, who, as a ship captain from other times, guided us through the stormy weathers of the semestral shooting that gave birth to the spring summer 2011 bastard catalog.

Thank you, thank you and more thank yous to Enrico “ERREDBARON” Predeval, Mattia Turco, Nicola Giordano, René Olivo, beautiful Giulia “fastidio” Boselli and young Easy, who posed for the first bastard kid collection.

Exceptionals models were Koji and Luca from Milano City Ink, Giorgio from UBM, Nico & Andrea alias Pink is Punk and the Warriors.

Enjoy the images.

Unreleased Projects – Italian Movies Adv

by jep Wednesday April 2nd, 2014



This bastard ad was the first one of a series on italian movies… Io sto con gli ippopotami with Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (1979).

It was never published but we’ve always kept the draft hanging on the wall in our offices as it was too cool and it portrays Marcin and Nikolai together.

Greetings from Los Angeles

by giuli Wednesday April 2nd, 2014

Los Angeles, second and last stop for my US visit. I’ve been crashing at Nick Trapasso’s and Neen Williams’s house for the fist two days: tipical skater house with plenty of beers and house guests, and a tatoo machine that never stops! Everybody coming through the place might get a tatoo, artwork provided by Nick or Neen.
Finally we go out on a sesh, and what a sesh! Some well known faces in the worldwide skateboarding scene as you can see in the picture above from left to right: Neen Williams, Cole Matthews, Benny Fairfax, Nick Trapasso, Julian Davidson, Andrew Brophy.

For the last two days I stayed at Federico Vitetta’s, a.k.a. Feds, originally from Milano, Italy, then moved to LA. Feds, besides being filming for years along with Ty Evans and Spike Jonze for the Crailtap Fam, couple years ago went Tm for Lakai. There i was roomies with Daniel Espinoza, new am for Lakai and Chocolate, too damn stylish. So we’re out on another mission, i even manage to squeeze in my boy Derrick Wilson, (the other Affiliate Skateboards rider in Cali along with Neen Williams), and little Espinoza takes us to a secret spot where someone (probably Berra?) planted this mimetic ledge, and we proceed with some filming. Raymond Molinar shows up too, and it’s on…

Unfortunately i can’t give you the bangers (not many anyways since you get kicked out so often in Socal), but i can at least share these few images to hopefully give you the gist… 

Greetings from Chicago

by giuli Wednesday April 2nd, 2014

Here I am, dealing with my annual pilgrimage to the States. First stop Chicago, almost a second home to me after having collaborated for years with the local skateboard company Affiliate Skateboards. And i obviously had to pay a visit to Uprise Skateshop, owned by my good friend Uriah Ruta.
Check out the photos that usually speak louder than words! Next stop LA, to visit the californian side of the family, Neen Williams and Derrick Wilson.
