Somewhere not that deep inside of me, there’s a fifteen year old girl who loves Blink 182, Airwalk treads and a guy called Bernard who hung out with his cargos around the plump rounds of his backside at the half-pipe around the corner from the footy field. In fact, that girl is now sitting in front of her Macbook with huge puppy eyes and swooning all the way back to 1997 with a new blog called The Skartorialist: The Sartorialist equivalent of skater boys from around the globe. The creation of London-based commercial and editorial photographer, Sam Ashley, it should also be known as ‘Painfully cute and perve-worthy lads around the world holding decks’.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
