Living Proof Magazine Issue #7: Tobin Yelland Feature
While his peers were snapping photographs of the homeless in an attempt to be overly dramatic and socially conscious, a young Tobin Yelland looked not to the unfamiliar, but to the immediate—encasing teenage angst, suburban life, girls, antics, and skateboarding in a tight spool of grainy negative film.
Living Proof Magazine Issue #7: Mint & Serf Feature
Together, Mint & Serf are The Mirf, a name equally as odd as it is utilitarian. Obviously a shortened form of both names, the conjoined moniker, which connected the two at the hand (or more appropriately, the can of spray paint), molded when the perfect, crisp open space proved too small for two, but just [...]
Living Proof Magazine Issue #7: Clare Rojas Feature

Living Proof Magazine Issue #7: Othelo Gervacio Feature
- Intro and Interview by: Erik Foss - Othelo Gervacio is a true talent. I had the privilege to make Othelo’s acquaintance about four years ago when I was to be tattooed by my friend and contemporary Scott Campbell. I had never been to Saved before, and Othelo was the person who greeted me. He [...]
