Bend Press is the site of Andy Jenkins. Back in the late '80s and early '90s, Andy started out drawing, shooting and writing for Poweredge, Homeboy, TransWorld Skateboarding, Dirt, Warp and Ray Gun magazines. His finely-drafted Wrench Pilot comic strips in TWS were always a standout. These days, Andy is the Art Director for Girl Skateboards, and he also contributes illustrations to The Skateboard Mag.
Andy's site is a virtual warehouse showcasing his entire career, so head on over there and explore his many creative endeavors in sections like Paintings, Drawings, Tinkering, Bend Archives and Wrench Pilot. Bend Press is a little hard to navigate and it's easy to lose one's way, but maybe that's the whole point. Get lost!
