Bill Strobeck, the Supreme lens wielder (in both the brand and literal sense), sits down for a couple of hours of quality skateboarding chat with Chris Roberts, Roger Bagley and Kelly Hart for this week’s instalment of The Nine Club.

 

Growing up in Syracuse, documenting some of the most iconic tricks to be put down at LOVE Park, filming for Alien Workshop and Habitat, moving to New York, discovering Jake Johnson at Tompkins Square park, nearly getting squished filming Mark Gonzales on roller skates, his masterpiece for Supreme, ‘cherry’, alongside another upcoming full length for the little red box – its safe to say every base is covered.

 


Marc Mckee – The Nine Club with Chris Roberts

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

 

 

The Nine Club is back for another round of quality skateboard spiel, this time with one of skateboarding’s most prolific artists, Marc McKee.

 

McKee’s lengthy career took off with the same trajectory as World Industries after he was pulled into Steve Rocco’s camp in the 1990s. Over the following years McKee produced some of what are now considered the most iconic skateboard graphics of all time including Natas Kaupas’ 101 ‘Satan’ and ‘Boom’ boards, the ‘Fucked Up Blind Kids’ series and the renowned World Industries ‘Wet Willy’ and ‘Flame Boy’ mascots.

 

Of course, McKee’s quiver of controversial artwork is discussed in the latest installment of The Nine Club alongside growing up in Marin County, studying art at UCLA, cease and desist letters and much more.
