An Interview with Todd Francis, Skateboard Artist & Visual Instigator

ToddFrancis_Apr2017-700551

“only a handful of artists have stuck around skateboarding long enough to not only tell its story, but have any type of arc or evolution. Still pissed, still “shitty,” and still a part of skateboarding, Francis is absolutely at his best when he’s at his worst.”

I had the amazing pleasure of meeting and photographing Todd Francis for THE HUNDREDS, on the night of his exhibition “Worst of the Worst” at House of Vans, which chronicled two decades of graphics with Anti-Hero skateboards. Head over to their site to read the full interview by Anthony Pappalardo.
