Jumping ahead to 1985, Kevin and I were staying at Bruno Peeters' house in Antwerp, Belgium. There was a small city skatepark down the street with a few basic skate obstacles. We shot a few token photos of Kevin ollieing on a quarterpipe there, just so I could run an Antwerp skate photo in Transworld Skateboarding Magazine. When I got back to the TWS offices and put an extensive Europe article together, that "token" skate photo of Staab was singled out by the art director, David Carson, and a high-contrast, graphic xeroxed version was used for the sub ad, a sticker, a shirt, a banner to hang at skate contests, and the end dot at the end of articles.
Let's jump ahead to the present. I gave my designer friend, Josh Higgins, the black-and-white photo of Kevin's ollie shot from 37 years ago and asked him to design a pop-art-like collab silkscreened poster for Staab and me to sign and number. Josh came through with a beautiful, vibrant image featuring colors that Kevin actually wears and a punk rock skull graphic down in the corner.
I am offering this as a limited release 18" x 24" silkscreened poster in an edition of 70 prints for $75 each, each signed by Kevin and me.
They are available in my shop.
