swindle_magazine_coverI’m very pleased to announce that Swindle Magazine‘s annual “icons issue” has hit newsstands, and it’s stuffed cover-to-cover with features of today’s cultural pioneers. I contributed profiles of Los Angeles celeb tattoo artist Mark Mahoney and pro-skater Alan “Ollie” Gelfand (the namesake of the ollie skate-move). I carry the work of Mahoney on my skin forever, so it was an honor to honor him here. As I mention in the piece, his “creations walk the earth on living canvasses.” Others in this issue: Merle Haggard, Ice Cube, Ice-T, Pee Wee Herman, Tura Satana, Niagara, Tommy Chong, Dita Von Teese, Sherman Alexie and many many more. This is the third icons issue for the magazine; the staff spent a year putting this one together and it truly shows.
