Thought I wouldn't?

Thursday's Diurnal comes from the one and only Travis Millard...




April 1, 2014

Today's Diurnalist is Mr. Jeremy Fish. Dig it. And I actually put up tomorrow's Diurnal as well. Couldn't wait. It's from Chris Chappell.


If you're looking for something to listen to for the next hour, head over to the Lodown magazine site. They asked me to do a "mixed tape" for them. Let me know what you think of the mix.


If you're looking for something to read, pick up a copy of the new Monster Children (#42). The piece I write for every issue, Bender, is illustrated by Travis Millard this time around! I'm so happy he did this for me/MC... hopefully it's not the last one. Thanks, Travis!

The Diurnal Drawing Project is now up and running. The first drawer is Friend of Bend, Rik Catlow. Send in your line art via email. Scans are preferred over snap shots. At least 600 pixels wide. Thanks all.

We're going to try it again... The Diurnal Drawings; Round 5. I'll be posting a drawing a day from all contributors (if it meets Bend Press standards). Send in your drawing(s) via email. If you want to check out the previous Diurnal project, go here (click "previous" and "next" for more examples of work). Hope you'll join us.


I used to own a Triumph Thruxton... If these cafe kits from Metisse in Germany had been around (and I had any disposable income to speak of — key), I would have been all over it. Beautious.

Traveller, photographer, facilitator, Tanaka "Rip" Tomonori, has released his latest project; a short, 16 minute doc on inspirational art man, publisher and music producer, Thomas Campbell. Check it out on Vice Japan.

Just go see the video of this... James Stewart is fucking nuts — in the best way possible. Daytona, Supercross, 2014.

Love this guy. Congratulations my old friend.

Sam Watterson resurfaces!

Check out Thrasher's new video series with Michael Burnett, Traffic Talk. First episode features Lance Mountain. While you're at it, click over to the Vans Living Off The Wall series and watch Angela Boatwright's doc on East LA punk shows. Rad.

Slight facelift. Back to simple... though the deeper you delve into Bend Press, the more maze-like it becomes. The site was started in 1999 and has been fiddled with a lot over the years.

Use the waybackmachine to really dig deep.

Wow. A whole year since my last posting. Slacker.

Bend Zine #22 is available. 75 copies only. 8.5" x 5.5", 40 pages, each with an original drawing included. Signed and numbered and sealed in a poly-bag. No two issue's interiors are alike — each is unique in it's editorial content and paper. The "Rejection Issue" features work that was rejected by my past & present clients — from graphics to illustrations to words... the clients vary from Lakai Footwear to Beats by Dre. Get an inside look of what didn't make the cut. You learn from your failures, right?





If you want to get in touch, please email me.
