It's nice to be able to put a face to the work of someone I have admired for some time. Todd Francis has been doing skate graphics for a number of years now for companies like Anti-Hero, Real, Stereo, Spitfire and has a new series out now with Element. The "Old Bones" series breathes some life into some old pros and look really nice too. Come to find out I have a Natas deck he did tucked away in the garage which I will have to put up in the office. Check out the piece they did on him here. It's rare that people get to see the inner workings of how graphics come together.

Been thinking a lot lately about my Grandpa Brown from some "conspiracy talk" this past week. He happened to be stationed at Roswell in 1947 when all that alien stuff supposedly went down. He was from the old school. Stern. Set in his ways. He never spoke of it. Only once did he offer up a story that they might have been testing nuclear delivery devices and other bombardments using high altitude balloons... but, that was only to put an end to our inquiries, I suspect. He Crew Chiefed B-29's from that time up until he retired in the late '60's. Not to mention he was an original member of the AVG!

One of the last things I did for Evan at the program was this illustration for the Cobra Dogs hot dog cart. They're (Forum) gonna "unofficially-like" sponsor the deal for the season and wrap the sucker up with some digitally printed vinyl sporting these illos. Enjoy!
Oh, and I quit working for Forum after 9 great years. I'll be posting some random artwork from my time there. Actually, I already did! Those black-and-white jobs below down there, yeah, there, were from the Youngblood series I did back in '04 or '05... something like that. Bonus points of you can guess the heavy-metal bands associated with the art.

Thought it was a bout time to post something. Been busy lurking at ASR and SIA Tradeshows and whatnot. Most of these photos were form recent travels to Tokyo, Boston, and NYC. Thanks to Sean B for showing me around Beantown and the Apple!
