"The image is based off an earlier painting , a collage piece I made for a show at FFDG in San Francisco this past summer.
I wanted to make a print that looks like a skateboard but isn't a skateboard. I'm known for doing skate graphics, and people like to hang them on the wall. and this one is designed flat , for specifically that purpose. The original painting is an 18” square, but the image lent itself to a long vertical shape, like a skateboard graphic." - Jim Houser
