The Slasher

Damn. I'm so bloody clingy about the graphics on my board, I even bought enough extra bits last week to reassemble a new skool setup to ride instead. The thing is, I bought the book The Skateboard Art of Jim Phillips not too long ago and if being an illustrator myself didn't make me appreciate that kind of detail enough, Jim talking about the ancient techniques under which they had to produce these classic graphics did.

Jim Phillips talks about his favourite graphic, the slasher, in this little clip:

It's almost 7pm - opening time for the next session at the [R]EVOLUTION skatepark ... hot damn that's tempting. That little slasher would do great on a small half pipe.
