DIG Issue 95 - July/August 2013 "THE CREATIVE ISSUE"

First, we had the photographers and then the video guys, so now it’s time for a look at the designers, artists, creative riders and everyone in between…

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was this metal/dirt capsule configuration in Guadalajara, Mexico. In fact, it took Clint Reynolds about five times longer than it would normally have (thanks to less than stellar Mexican welding equipment); ten days to be exact. And it only took Sergio Layos about one second to whip around it (times multiple dozens of loops over the course of a few days). See more from the comp and find out all about the man who came up with this contraption on page 40. Photo by Rob Dolecki. Artwork by Chris Piascik.
