Volume 1 Number 1 - 08/1985 The First Issue

The very first issue. I am pretty sure the idea or concept for GCSR came about during a pot smoking, ditch skating and school skipping adventure with Steven Jacobs (RIP). Steven was an extremely talented artist and an extremely talented skateboarder. He needed an outlet for his artwork and I had boxes and boxes of 4x6 color prints of us skating and surfing. My father owned an office building which gave me access to several xerox copy machines and hundreds of x-acto knives and bottles of rubber cement. And we thought, hey, maybe this 'zine thing will get us into a party or two and possibly meet some punk rock girls at the same time. It worked!

All I can say is that you should be in a newspaper. You should most definitely be recognized for your work. Its not every day that I get to see art like yours. Go ahead, publish your stuff because I guarantee you that you will be noticed amongst millions of other viewers! Go ahead, take advantage of your talent, you got it!
