ointment Last spring we sor t of had an app posed sup e wer y with the Antiz guys...

Every fucking ng. wro go it some tiny little detail, which lets ed look ure pict Mirco tried and tried and the rs othe the really nice. He kept trying and r, bee A try. t star ted offering stuf f for the nex a r, bee a extr a ten pack, a ten pack and an , club the at t few drinks at the club, a full nigh



a ten pack with dinner AND the full night at the club. The offers were getting higher and more and more ridiculous. In the end the full deal mentioned above was on stakes plus some break dance mov es and the guys wanted to go sur fing in the stinky river right next to the spot. That was about the time, when the photoduder decided that he should bet on something too.. Just once. It couldn’ t hur t. Eh?... Now... Never, never ever bet that you will lick off the whole coping of the spot if your buddy sticks the next try - cau se he will do so....... More likely he will hav e kept falling off his board deliberately to get you to say something stupid!!! So the quarter was licked, everybody went sur fing in the shitty river and to rou nd off a per fect session at the spot the lads decided to take a cleaning bath in that oversized jacuzzi right in front of the sho pping mall. It surely would have been a session that the Antiz guys would have enjoyed. On the other hand, we don’t know if it had turned out that way if they had sho wn up. So… Thanks guys, for not showin g up! You helped us having one of the bes t sessions of the summer. Antiz has influ ence without even being present!So plea se be so kind and visit us some other day , ok?


Fra is a close friend and has been collaborating with the Warriors for some years now. The latest project was the Wind deck of the animal series decks... You might remember the flying frog with the pipe in its mouth? That’s his work. We love that one and that’s reason enough for us to show some more of his work and ask some questions...

FRANCESCO LORENZETTI 1. Hi Puglius, how are you? Hi Alex, I’m fine, thanks

2. How and when did your interest in art begin, in particular in drawing? Even when I was little I used to draw a lot, not so much because i was interested but because of an inner necressity. The interest and research came considerably later, when I was about twenty.

3. You studied at the Scuola del Fumetto in Milan, right? What moved you to seriously explore the world of digital art as a freelance? Yes, I studied illustration at the Scuola del Fumetto in Milan where I acquired a strong basis of traditional techniques, and on graduation, confronted with the rest of the world (the boom of blogs on the web) I realized that there was this whole digital universe of which I had no knowledge, and therefore I decided to learn these new instruments (programs), self-taught in the beginning and then taking advanced level courses in Los Angeles. Free-lance is the only possible way to work in the Ticino as an illustrator.

t visual arts can today, thanks to their strong messages, seem a good instrument to contribute to utionize society. It has always been the case that artists, philoosophers and dreamers created and evolved society nse and a shape to the future.




6. You use various techniques to express yourself, is there one that you particularly prefer? Recently I am very much engaged in incision (acquaforte)

 7. What are the differences you feel at a level of physical and mental perception between expressi or on a digital pad? Drawing, whether traditionally or digitally, is a strictly mental act, and on a physical level I don’t fee a slight pressure on the last element of my right median digit! On a mental level I see a difference in the mode of organizing the picture and the speed of executi

Samy Aeby - Handsome-Guy from Basel, Jan Solanta – the homeless boy from Barcelona/ Obermuhen, Moris F. – the Punk and me (Pagadino), who ended up being a (outstanding) minnesinger in the streets. It was, or should have been, summer in Copenhagen when we arrived, after quite a fun train ride all the way up north. Clouds all over and drizzle when we finally met Jan, who payed his flight with his last money before finally coming back after 8 Months of „la vida loca“ in Barcelona.It followed: five days of rain. The new skatepark that has recently opened closed for summerbreak on our 2nd day. It really felt like nobody wanted us to skate there. So what then?


What i if it: RAINS ON TOUR – 5 guys going to Copenhagen. Writing something about that Skatetrip that turned out to be slightly diffrent than expected makes me ,however, sad or even laugh... Copenhagen, a lovely city, a friendly skate scene, amazing street spots, good and huge skateparks and gorgeous women. That was what we knew about it as we’ve been there on our last summertrip for a couple of days.This time on bord(of the sinking ship): Christoph Rediger - Mr. Niceguy from Basel,


Christiania: Benefits: Good vibration. Probably the most famous bowl of Europe. A whide selection of everyth kind of People sitting around, playing cards – no aggressions – good Vibration! Problem: You’ll be stoned, druged down and drunk after leaving. No money cuz you invested it in however hard you go for it. Worst-Case: you end up as the boy from Norway (17-Jäger-Shotboy/M Joint-In-5-Tries-To-Throw-It-Away-And-Hit-A-Pipe & I get arrestet for puking around and you’ll n hunt humans or similar)


hing you shouldn’t do. All

n hash or anything else Mister I-Try-To-Build-Anever see me again – cuz I

Bikeride: Benefits: Your fast, faster than by Skateboard when I think of all the cobblestones in this city. You can make races, battles about who slames faster while fighting. You can drift in curves plus they’re for free and you can deposit them all around the city. Problems: Rain, wet asses, fights for the freshest streetbike of the group. Burger KingHostel-Burger King might becomes your only sense of life & When Citicens see you messing around they shout out loud that the bikes are payed by their taxes. So you gotta learn how to cycle civilised again after 4 days.


Garage-Seshs: Benefits: YOU CAN SKATE, you can build a little park with everything you find in the streets, you can practise wallrides, you sweat out the rest alcohol of the past nights’ happy hour. And IF you get that half an hour off a dry spot your all warmed up to get those Backside Noseblunt slides like Mr. Rediger does! Problem: Hotel Manager.


Haircuts: Benefits: A lot of fun shaving. Battles about who looks even more stupid. Trying not to jump over the fine line between brave to bold. In case that your friends have messed it up with your haircut – there’s no better payback than „THE SHAVEBACK“ Problem: Even weeks later you still don’t really look alright again cuz bold actually never was your thing. Plus: When you’re white you look like a Skinhead & when your black people fear you as if you’d be one.


Happy-Hour: Benefits: You can do a breakdancebattle, if you’re lucky the waitress gives you a microphone so you can scream, shout and rap to it. May you catch up some girls, if your lucky Problems: Hotel Manager. The happy hours doesn’t last for ever. Headache on the next morning. The girls you caught up speak swiss german.


70’s: Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Close Encounters of the Third Kind is a 1977 science fiction film written and directed by Steven Spielberg. This is still the best UFO film of all time! Richard Dreyfuss is starring as one of many people who begin to have strange dreams and sighting of UFOs and the five musical notes which keep on running through his head lead him to Devil’s Tower Mountain where the first contact with space beings occur. The last twenty mintues of the movie works like a silent film, with very little dialogue. The amazing visuals, sound and music by John Williams don’t need any words. I WANT TO BELIEVE!

80’s: This Is Spinal Tap

This Is Spinal Tap is an American 1984 rock musical mockumentary directed by Rob Reiner. The film satirizes the wild personal behavior and musical pretensions of hard rock and heavy metal musical bands, as well as the hagiographic tendencies of rock documentaries of the time. This film is just as crazy as it is funny. A 4½ hour bootleg version of the film exists and has been traded among fans and collectors for years. ROCK ON!

SCI FI: Moon

Moon is a 2009 British science fiction drama . It is the feature debut of director Duncan Jones.It’s about a man who experiences a personal crisis as he is nearing the end of a three-year solitary stint mining helium-3 on the far side of the Earth’s moon. With a classical slow beginning of the movie to an incredible twist in the middle this is surely one of the best space movies of the last ten years! CHECK IT! CHECK IT!

HORROR: An American Werewolf in London

An American Werewolf in London is a 1981 British-American horror film, written and directed by John Landis.Two American students are on a walking tour through Britain and are attacked by a Werewolf. One is killed, the other is mauled. Back in London he starts to transform and kills people without knowing.. This film is before computer animated shit and the Werewolf transformation is, even today, a masterpiece of special effects. AWUUUUUUUUUU!!!


MONSTER: Monsters

Monsters is a 2010 British science fiction film, written, shot and directed by Gareth Edwards. Six years after Earth has suffered an alien invasion a cynical journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border. For being low budget and modern, this movie is really great! A real adventure film, the way they don’t make them anymore. DON’T MOVE!!!

DOCUMENTARY: The Devil and Daniel Johnston

The Devil and Daniel Johnston is a 2006 documentary film directed by Jeff Feuerzeig. A haunting profile of a man obsessed with the devil and plagued by mental illness, and the transcendent music he made throughout his life. Daniel Johnston captured the hearts of critics and fans while being shuffled in and out of mental hospitals, burdened by his demons and liberated by his piano keys. This story is so powerfull of humor, pain and ispiration, you have to see it to understand. 666!!!

CULT: Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks is an American television serial drama created by David Lynch and Mark Frost in 1990. I know this is a series, but it really deserves to be seen. It follows the investigationheaded by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, of the brutal murder of a popular teenager and homecoming queen, Laura Palmer. I remember i couldn’t see this series cause I was 11 and still the ads in TV were shocking me and are still impressedin my mind (who murdered Laura Palmer?). The serie is incredibly psychadelic and has the best freaky caracthers ever. The series was canceled by ABC after a significant decrease of views, that was because ABC put pressure on Lynch to reveal the secret of the murder of Laura. Lynch was against this decision because it wasn’t the right time for the revelation yet, but yielded to the demands of the network; Lynch was right, and after the solution of the murder, the ratings felt inexorably and the show was canceled after the second season. FIRE WALK WITH ME!


EROTIC: Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals

Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals is a 1977 Italian sexploitation film by Joe D’Amato. It is notable for its scenes of gore, which include rape, castration, cannibalism and disembowelment, and for being a mix of erotic and horror, something on which the director would later focus with his films Porno Holocaust and Erotic Nights Of The Living Dead. It’s so extreme.. you have to see it. It’s actually a very bad movie. But thinking that is done in 1977 we must admit it is fascinating for its bravery and insanity! FUCK AND EAT!

CLASSIC: Metroipolis

Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist film in the science-fiction genre directed by Fritz Lang. Metropolis is not just a great sci-fi film, it’s easily one of the best films of the silent era. The movie presents a future society divided by class warfare, with the rich elite living in the towering skyscrapers of Metropolis, and the lowly workers below. As a relic of the German Expressionism movement, Metropolis shows impressive visual design and effects work that still hold up today. THE FUTURE IS THE PAST!

MASTERPIECE: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a 2004 American romantic fantasy film about an heartbroken man, that his girlfriend Clementine underwent a procedure to erase him from her memory, decides to do the same. However, as he watches his memories of her fade away, he realizes that he still loves her, and may be too late to correct his mistake. Is for sure one of the best movies I have ever seen. One of the most genius writers (Charlie Kaufman) and one of the most visionary director Michel Gondry with two incredible actors as Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet could only create this masterpiece. Is a trip inside dreams and memories with ingenious special visual and effects that drag you inside the vision. I almost missed at the cinema cause italian distributors translated the title in : If you dump me, i erase you!... fuck them! BONG AND POP CORN!

WARIUS Fabrizio the Chef presents: Ruote gorgonzola e noci

Why are Gorgonzola mould yummi but bread mould not? Gorgonzola cheese is inoculated with spores of a specific type of mould, namely Penicillium glaucum, which is a harmless fungi. Moulds that randomly grow on bread might execrete dangerous mycotoxins that cause serious illness. Cooking Instructions 600 grams of ruote, 250 grams gorgonzola, 2.5 dl cream, 1 sprig of parsley, salt, pepper, nutmeg to taste. You probably know how to cook pasta. So first cook pasta “al dente. Cut the Gorgonzola in cubes, put them into a pan add 2 dl of cream and let everything simmer on low fire. After about 5 min. the gorgonzola should have melted. Sincewe don’t want to have a too dense sauce add another 0.5 dl of cream and also the walnuts. Season to taste the sauce with pepper and nutmeg. Drain the pasta, add the sauce, decorate with fresh parsley. Serve in a heated plate. Bon Appetit!
