Heroin Skatebooards are back with a brand new series of decks this month with art supplied by Suzi Kemp, Andrew Pommier and Craig Questions. Here’s an update about the artists involved from Fos below who also carved his wares on the new Heroin Zombie Pro Series. These beauties will be gracing the walls of your local skate shop in the next 2 weeks so make sure you reserve one today before they are all snapped up.
I hate going to degree shows. A load of pissed up students swanning around thinking they’re the best thing in the world and all their work looks like stuff that’s been done a million times before. It’s either Japanese Manga rip off stuff or twee crap saying “Be happy” or some shit that looks like they ripped off our mate Marcus Oakley. So when I was at the Brighton degree show last year and I saw Suzi Kemp’s work it was a breath of rotting fresh air. Suzi’s penchant for Black Metal and Zombies fitted right at home with Heroin. I’m stoked that the first board she did was for us, expect more killer shit from her in the future.
Andrew is an International Skate art heavyweight and I love introducing him that way to people at parties. He’s the art director at Momentum wheels, has worked for Girl, Toy Machine, RVCA, Adidas and a bunch of other nerds I guess. We met in China a few years ago and we’ve been homies ever since. We always seem to end up on epic skate art trips together. He’s a good lad and is down to come and shoot semi automatic weapons at the L.A. gun club with me.
What can I say about Craig Questions? I first met him at the premier at “Live from Antarctica” where he proceeded to chew my ear off about 80’s skateboarding and hasn’t stopped since, and that was bloody 6 years ago. He’s one of my favourite people and there’s never a dull moment with him around. Craig lives and breathes skateboarding and if you don’t like him, I can’t imagine that he gives a fuck. What you see if what you get, from cutting the heads off dead animals for his skull collection to getting numbers off the hottest girls, Craig is a force of nature and I’m stoked to have his shitty artwork on the bottom of my board.
