Skateboarding is really a sport of great passion, and éS Shoes has always been a firm believer and champion for big skate dreams. The skate brand recently did a collaboration with the movie Machotaildrop, a visually stunning tale about an amateur skateboarder who realizes his pro skating dreams while discovering a bizzare underbelly of the skateboarding world.
This trippy, critically-acclaimed movie takes its inspiration from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with its use of surreal cinematography and quirky storyline.
Watch the trailer video for Machotaildrop below:
Last week we featured the collaboration between Lakai and Spike Jonze on the Pico sneaker. Now, we’re highlighting yet another fresh Pico collaboration, this time with Andy Jenkins, art director of Girl Skateboard Company, and close friend of Spike Jonze. Andy is also a proud member of the Art Dump team, a team of creative minds who make up the Girl Skateboard Company’s full-time art department.
Andy Jenkins’ artistic roots started back in Denver, Colorado where he moved when he was 17 and attended art school. He soon moved to California and spent the next several years working as a magazine editor, writer, designer and illustrator. He joined Girl Skateboard Company back in 1994. His work has been featured in several exhibitions worldwide, as well as several magazines and DVDs.
The exclusive Jenkins-designed Lakai Pico is just another one of his creative outlets-- in shoe form. This fresh colorway has a cool grey and yellow combo with Andy’s signature embroidered on the back. Be sure to pick up your own pair today before they’re long gone.
