The Art Dump Zine Trade

Today on Giving Tuesday, we need you.
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all today on Giving Tuesday. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls AND will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Let your support for reliable local reporting be amplified by this special matching opportunity. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

I'm sure few people are familiar with The Art Dump, a collection of awesome artists who all work under the same roof in Torrance. But you might be familiar with the work they do, because they're also the creative muscle behind Girl Skateboard Company, one of the companies under Crailtap, who also owns Chocolate Skateboards, Lakai Footwear and Fourstar Clothing, some of the best brands in skating.

The Art Dump is made up of 8 people, Andy Jenkins, Andy Mueller, Tony Larson, Jeremy Carnahan, Michael Coleman, Eric Anthony, Misato Suzuki, and Megan Baltimore. They currently make up the core members of The Art Dump, though there are other members who collaborate on projects now and again like Spike Jonze, Evan Hecox and Thomas Campbell. There are also alumni members who've moved on like Geoff McFetridge, Kevin Lyons, Michael Leon, and Bob Kronbauer. If you're not sure who any of these people are, I highly suggest you click the links given and find out how amazing these people are.

Currently The Art Dump is having a zine trade, where they'll send you a brand new, 32 page zine with a silkscreened cover. All you have to do, is send them a zine that you've made, along with a return address to:
