Inspiration PUSHEAD

In 93 (?) my older-cooler-metalhead friend Giannis showed up in English class with his Zorlac skateboad. At the time I was a newly recruit metalhead and G was like the 2-3 years older metalhead that I looked up to in a way. His cousin neighbour or friend don't remember was a kid from the US that had all the cool hard to find shit. He had comics, computer books and all sorts of wizardry. He looked like a young Earle Haley . Anyway my point, the deck was done by Pushead, it was a spider/skull image and it blew my mind. Skateboards skulls spiders and metal , take a sip of that.

That sort of imagery really became a thing for me and i can see it in my art today.
I will come back to my "stories of youth" stuff at another point and in a comicbook form. 
Maybe I will tell you about the day we found a dead baby in the dumpster when i was 12-13.
