Well, you are in for a treat this week as London based artist Mr. Gauky has allowed us into his studio to see what goes on behind the scenes of his incredible work.

Mr Gauky is the man behind the Battle Royal themed Superdead decks that are currently out right now and has become one of the most talked about artists in town this year. So, with this in mind, we decided to get the lowdown from the man himself as he is also one of the artists we have picked to be involved in our Toxic Wasters sticker art show at this year’s Halloween Massacre.

Watch this Day in the Life video that will give you a sneak peek at some of his drawings, illustrations and work in progress followed nicely with some dangerous rooftop coffee and cake time and a few pumps at his local cement hole- Cantelowes skatepark in Camden.

Yelawolf won’t exploit skateboarding

Yelawolf has spoken about his love of skateboarding but has assured both fans and skaters alike that he won’t be exploiting it.

Whilst he has never shied away from being a skater nor ever held himself back from professing his love for a good schralp, he recently said in an interview that he didn’t want to make tracks specifically about skating, as Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell have done in the past. He explained:

“It’s something I do, it’s something that I love doing, but it’s nothing that I’d ever want to exploit. I think skateboarders respect that, and I think that’s why I’ve been embraced within that culture, because I don’t want to write records about skateboarding. I don’t think it’s necessary, I don’t think it’s cool.”

You can see him on a board in the video below, for the remix of I Wish, which also sees him wearing arguably the best sweatshirt of all time.

Watch: Magenta in Bordeaux
