"From Hands That Bite"
"From Hands That Chew"'
"Sometimes it's what you do off your board."
Thought I'd try something different tonight.
Precursors to Transworld's legendary "Brain Floss" series, 1987's "From Hands That Bite" and its follow-up from 4 years later, "From Hands That Chew" had quite an impact on me as youngster. If there was ever concrete evidence that skateboarders represented the kind of crowd that I wanted to find myself around and be part of, this was it.
All so captivating... so much to say, so much to learn.
I always liked that the focus of these pieces weren't just on artists on the fringes of the subculture that happened to skate a little. Natas, Lance, Miller... these are some straight-up legends.
And I still don't think Lucero gets enough credit for his amazing graphic work over the years.
On a related topic, I'd like to thank the always incredible Jon Horner for sending over these amazing "Where's Penny?" prints. Amazing work that will have you staring for hours. Recommended.
