It always Stokes Me Out to hear someone say they dug art/boards I've done, & this Artist has some Killer work....

When I read this it made Me laugh cuz I did the same with artist when I was back in school...

"While at school instead of doing my assignments I would usually be sketching in the back of the class. I would show the other artist kids what I was doing and we would share our influences and ideas."

Very cool Wes. Like that Black Book at the Getty Museum. I think you should submit something and get yourself in there, you definitely should be included.

That's cool, Wes!

When I was still in school I was known for drawing caricatures of the teachers during class. At that time they were in demand by many of my schoolmates. Some caricatures were pretty extreme, like my fat and sweaty biology teacher I used to draw wearing a black leather bikini with a whip in her hand and flys circling around her armpits. It became an instant classic, hahaha. Just glad my teachers never found out. I still like doing caricatures once in a while. Or my 2 1/2 years old daughter tells me what animal she wants and I draw it for her, not realistically but more cartoonish. It's fun...

Cool little article.  Thanks for posting it Wes.  And no doubt you've influenced many artists and wannabees.  [thumb]

And Paly?  History books?  Bullshit!  I think it was Miss Lotta Leadpipe, like your hero, Percy.  I can't insert the link (not supported), but it's here:

So 300, I think this kind of answers your question.

all my funny business aside and truth only be spoken here:

The Bulldog will someday be in the Smithsonian Institute as one of the greatest Skate/Surf - Lowbrow - visionistical artist of our day ~ which boards will be a part of the display? [eek] 

and I'm trying to make the HOF this year I'll pass a petition

Yeah , I was an artist back in high school , 1978-1982. Stealing the DogTown cross idea I replaced the "Dog" with "Cow". (Being from Lancaster County PA , the home of the Amish and lotsa dairy farms, Cow Town was a natural.) A friend of mine saw it and I told him I drew it as a joke and I was just doodling. He asked me to draw a much better more detailed CowTown cross for him. So I did up a nice large one for him and forgot about it . Here he takes it and has it put on some t-shirts for him and his bro's . They all turn up at a Pepsi Team demo all decked out in their CowTown t-shirts !!!!   Laughed my ass off !.
