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.

Vans x Our Legacy

Growing up, skating and punk were synonymous. Last weekend in London, Vans debuted a new capsule collection with Swedish brand OUR LEGACY, inspired by 90s hardcore. Celebrating the release, Youth Of Today performed an intimate show at an art gallery in London’s Soho. To work with icons from both of those worlds simultaneously was awesome. More photos and the full story are up now at Paper Magazine.

Thank you Vans and Jockum of Our Legacy for inviting me to be a part of it.

Soaker Promo for Wharfcat Records

Brooklyn based “punk, noise rock, [and] art-damaged sludge metal” band Soaker released their debut 7″ on Wharfcat Records today. These guys are great friends of mine, so I was stoked when they came to me with this out-there idea for a promo photo, which we had way too much fun working on.

You can read an amazingly sardonic interview with the band over at CLRVYNT, listen to their single from the record, Sendhi,  on AdHoc, AND you can order yourself a copy from Wharfcat’s website here.

Congrats dudes!
