Thrasher Magazine Canvas Details
Thrasher magazine Canvas details:
Thrasher has a two-page department called Canvas where we showcase skaters and their art. The department is strictly focused on art by skaters, so a skate photo needs to be provided by the artist as well.
The photos or scans of the art need to be well-focused and brightly-lit against a white background with a resolution of no less than 300dpi, 5-6 inches wide each. A flatbed scanner works best. 10-15 pieces of art is an ideal number to choose from.
Multiple skate shot options are preferred. The skate photo should be shot up-close with the skater large in the frame. We do not expect pro-level skating but try your best. Obviously: no posed shots. If you have older skate photos of yourself these can be an option as well, but we prefer more recent shots.
The words can be written directly by the artist or, more often, they are written by someone who knows the artist. You can write whatever you want, but we suggest avoiding bland, cliché descriptions of people and their art though. Try to spice it up and inject humor if you can.
Place all images in a folder, compress it, and send it by email, or though a reliable file-sharing system such Hightail or WeTransfer.
Even after all Canvas items are compiled there is no guarantee when or if it will be published due to various editorial factors. Canvas is considered an unpaid reader-submitted article for the artist, although there is a small payment for the skate photographer. It is good promotion and exposure for the artist and we will place any email or website you would like on your spread as well.
