|VOLCOMICS ISSUE #1 - INTERNATIONAL ART SHOW AND COMIC BOOK
In May, Volcom launched a worldwide artshow tour and 60-page comic book in support of
the biggest Volcom Featured Artist Series line ever.
The project was born from our love of the underground comic movement and looked to
capture its raw energy and low-fi means by creating a comic book that is authentic down
to the paper stock and page count.

The comic book was over two years on the making and features legendary skateboard
artists Jim Phillips and VCJ as well as some of the biggest creative contributors to
skateboarding today - Michael Sieben, Todd Bratrud and Travis Millard. In addition to
skate-art heavyweights the book features artists/athletes from the worlds of surfing,
snowboarding and skateboarding such as Mark Appleyard, Ozzie Wright, and Jamie Lynn.
The art show series will begin May 19th at Fuse gallery in New York City and will continue through the summer with stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Tokyo and London. The openings will include drawings by all Holiday 2007 Volcom Featured Artists, as well as scribblings by all twenty-eight artists that contributed to the book. There will be artists in attendance and a limited number of t-shirts and books to be given away for free at each opening reception. Volcom will be producing fifteen thousand copies of the comic for free, with worldwide distribution.
