and stuff & things -

The Powell Clothing line was launched while I was doing artwork there. So fabric patterns were designed for all that product. Probably don't want to venture too far down that road. But talk about collector's items. The ever popular RoseBone design was worked into a Hawaiian shirt (right), need I say more?

So if anyone wants to know any more than that, you are one sick puppy, but drop me a line and I'll see if I can answer your question. Dreadpyrat interviewed me about Powell for an Art of Skateboarding article a little ways back. Cool site. www.artofskateboarding.com

Below is the link to the article plus the Bones Brigade intelligence report article about me when I first started at Powell.
