Although this is one of the smallest Serialist paintings I have done it was still very challenging to construct such a simple design while effectively keeping it�s visual composition both stimulating and narrative in nature. The Members of the Bones Brigade (Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Per Wellinder, etc.) and the videos, tricks, and skateboard graphics they created were a huge part of my life and one of the first things that inspired me as a youngster. As a youth my friends and I would watch with wonder and amazement as these athletes pushed their tricks to new heights both literally and creatively that we never thought possible. Skateboarding taught me not only how to fall but how to get back up again and have the courage and creativity to try a new trick again, and again, and again. I still have that same sense of wonder and drive to succeed in life, Art, and Skateboarding. I was just one out of millions of youths that found skateboarding in the 1980�s. It is because of inspirational athletes like the Bones Brigade that I still skateboard and will always hold that sport and the sense of freedom and originality that one gains from it close to my heart.
