Here it is the top 10 skateboard artists (in my humble opinion)
#7 Winston Tseng
If you haven’t heard of Winston Tseng you needn’t look farther than you local skate shop. He has been the graphic genius behind Enjoi since Marc Johnson moved on. If any one could fill Johnson’s shoes it would appear to be Tseng. He makes great skate graphics.
#6 Todd Bratrud
Todd’s work is amazing. It seems like he’s worked with everybody in skating at some point, but most recently Creature and Volcom. I believe he is also part owner of the illusive Send Help.
#3 Todd Francis
Todd is one of the most technical illustrators in the game. He proves that it is sometimes refreshing to not know who did an illustration when you first look at it. You just know that it is amazing
#1 Sean Cliver
Simply the best. Never the most distinctive style, but if it is funny as hell and extremely well drawn odd or good it was Cliver. (or maybe McKee if it has a World logo on it) He’s worked almost everywhere in skateboarding, and probably the most respected artist still doing it. (even though he may have burned a bridge or two.)
That’s it, that’s all. If you don’t like my list, fuck you, make you own. Having said that, sorry Jim Phillips.
