Mark Gonzales #8.
The Gonz with a big ollie impossible.
Everything this week is something that used to be hanging on my bedroom wall back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. A lot of these were the backsides to posters and there will be some tape damage. Normally, I clean things like that up in Photoshop, but for these I feel it adds something to the scans, like a used skateboard versus a new one.
Transworld made a book of posters in 1991 that featured the Gonz, Tony Hawk, Omar Hassan and Matt Hensley. The back of each poster had some information on the skater and a sequence of them doing a trick. This was the back to Mark's poster. The other side was him doing an ollie over one of those traffic barriers wearing the same Dork shirt as in this sequence.
Spike Jonze took the photos.
