'Air' | Daily Drawing 463.
When I was a punk kid, I practically lived on my skateboard.
It wasn’t just a means of transportation - it was an obsession.
When I wasn’t skating, or thinkin’ bout skating, or drawing people skateboarding, I would pore over copies of skate and surf magazines.
As a poor kid from Philly, the ultimate dream was to be one of those lucky bastards in the magazines out in Cali or Florida or Hawaii that could skate and surf 365 days a year.
I never get to California (only to visit), but I sure could draw a mean frontside air.
I drew this the other night and the drawing muscle memory kicked right in.
This whole ilo took not more than 30 minutes.
