New Skateboard Graphics

Posted in Graphic Design, Illustration, Product Design on March 21, 2009 by vetika

No sooner do I mention Michael Leon (in my previous post about www.lovelypackage.com) does he pop up again, writing the foreward and showcasing some of his work in a new book about skateboard graphics. Books about skateboard graphics have been done before, some good, some bad. This one features one of my personal favourites Evan Hecox, Arkitip cohort and artist for Chocolate skateboards, so this one’s definitely on the ‘must have’ list.

 Michael Leon for Rasa Libre (RIP)

Check out some of the boards Michael Leon did for the now defunct Rasa Libre. What could be more awesome than an octopus floating in space?

I’ll tell you:

Nothing could be more awesome than an octopus floating in space.
