Details

In skateboarding, the term to "Snake" someone originated in the 1970's. Meaning to drop in the bowl or ramp quickly when it was clearly not your turn, usually cutting someone else off. Sims made wheels named snakes. In the mid 80's Powell-Peralta artist VC Johnson Illustrated  this snake graphic inspired by the style of MC Escher. Originally it was used as the sleeve print for the Mike McGill skull & snake long sleeve T-shirt, later two other T-shirt designs were developed utilizing the snake design. Hsssssss.

 

Craig Stecyk used a printer in Los Angeles that was famous for making hand bills for concerts and events in the 60's and 70's. One distinctive style of poster they made had a multi-color blend in the background and was a favorite of Stecyk’s. Powell-Peralta used these bills to promote the Bones Brigade Videos Animal Chin and Public Domain as well as various trade show propaganda.
