Here's a self portait. Man I'm fat. As of this posting, I'm going on a diet, and bustin' out with some exercise. "Take a good look in the mirror" they say. Try taking a good lookin in the mirror and paint your mug, you'll discover things like- "holy shit, I'm a real fatty" or "my headphones are silly big".
Enough fat talk. The symbol behind my head is a blast from the past. It's a Powell Peralta logo for some skateboard wheels called "Rat Bones". Son of a bitch, me and my buddies used to draw that damn logo everywhere, on skateboards, ramps, bus seats, books, etc..... I went on the internet to look at some old skate deck graphics, and hot damn, I used to love that shit. I didn't realize it at the time but that stuff really inspired me artisticly. Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, Steve Steadman, Rodney Mullin, these skate decks were the fuckin' shit. I never really wondered who the artists were that did the artwork on these decks when I was 11 or 12, but I've now discovered that a lot of these pieces where done by a guy who goes by VCJ or VJC (i found both orders of initials online). His stuff kind of reminds me comic book artist Brian Bolland, a little bit.......anyway if you know anything about any of these old school skate graphics dudes, let me know. I'd apreciate it. ZAMMY!!!!!!!!!!!
