This is from a Transworld feature on skateboarders who are also visual artists. Ron Cameron, Thomas Campbell, Sean Cliver, Dan Eastabrook, Mike Hill and Nisi were included in the story as well. The kids have it so easy today. Now they can pull out a copy of the Beautiful Losers exhibition book or reference the Art In America article on Chris Johanson from a few years ago. By the time fall hits, there will also be Ed Templeton's Deformer book. And I guess you can't forget the whole internet thing either. But back in the day when you would tell your art professors that you were influenced by Neil Blender or Mark Gonzales, all you would get in response was a blank stare.
