What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding

 

I had a bird when I was 14 my brother and I named Tony Hawk. I grew up in Las Vegas and skated so much as a kid, but I never really got better. It was a lot of fun though. I remember as young as 8 or 9 going into my local skateboard shops and marveling at all the graphics on the boards.

 

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

I really dig the Clayton Brothers, but Femke Hiemstra has been making some pretty awesome work lately too.

Max fleischer.

Anything else you want to tell?

 

 

My biggest influence have always been old cartoons, but I think I am a product of my time too. The skateboard, graffiti, and general street culture has shaped my art in ways I can't really fathom. Thank you skateboard for being there when no one else was.
