I created my first skateboard deck graphics in 2011. It was for a Varsity of Community
collaboration in aid of The Skate for Homies Foundation’s
Fall Art Sale were all the boards made were auctioned.
I have never kicked and pushed before but, the ‘neverness’ has not stopped me from loving the sport of Skateboarding. I got conscious of it in the mid-nineties courtesy of ESPN’S X games. The clothes the boarders wear, the casualness of the sport, the deck artwork and the stunts the boarders pull off have never seized to fascinate me. Skateboarding in many ways has influenced the work I produce and characters on boards are a constant feature in my sketches. This project as a great way for me to connect my interest in making my drawings accesible and visible with my interest in skateboarding.
