Roskopp evolution.. Jim Phillips.

You all should know by now that my biggest inspiration dating back to my childhood is the epic illustrator for Santa Cruz skateboards, Jim Phillips.. I just can't blog about his influence enough on this site. I was flipping through his book, Art of Jim Phillips, and I got lost in nostalgia for the Roskopp series of graphics. I believe I had every later one, but not the first two. Enjoy.

 I had literally 10 of the "face" deck below.. the round tail was revolutionary. I learned so much on this deck below, that it defines my dedicated skating years.
