Mark Appleyard for Place Skateboard Culture.

This collaboration between Mark Appleyard, GLOBE Brand and PLACE started with our “TIME ISSUE” in 2017.During the making of this issue, we asked Mark to create a drawing for us in just 1-minute.

This was the result:

From the moment we saw (1) Inbox with the title: Mark’s Drawing.”, we were all hyped! The result was good and it was fun. So we printed it and presented it to you- our viewer and readership.

A few weeks past and to be honest, we can’t remember every exact thing we printed but for some reason, this one stuck. So one day one of us proposed: “Wouldn’t it be nice to make a shirt with Mark’s drawing on it?”, we all agreed and so a phone call was made to the GLOBE offices.

“Yeah sounds good, just a shirt though? We could do some pants, or a hoody and a shoe?”
Josh at the EU offices proclaimed.

That was more than we asked for so I told him: “Sounds good to me, I will talk to the guys and see what they say.”

That conversation opened up the doors for all of this to happen. A collaboration with a brand we grew up with and a childhood hero who’s parts we watched multiple… and we mean multiple times.

Ever since then we visited Mark’s house in Huntington Beach, threw his football into the neighbour’s lawn and somewhere along the way decided on a t-shirt, a hoody and a pair of house shoes (that you could also wear outside).

Mark and the GLOBE guys also returned the favour and came to skate in Berlin, which resulted in this video shot by Yentl Touboul.

Anyway watch the video and while you are at it watch some of Mark’s other parts, he is a great guy and we are proud to present this capsule we made together to you all.
