Marc McKee: on yr board, in yr gallery, and now on ESPN
March 18, 2011
Yesterday ESPN featured an interview with Marc McKee–the more I read, the more I wish I had been cool enough to be skateboarding in the 90s. Too bad I was stuck with a purple mountain bike.
The experts over there think he’s as great as we do: “It’s safe to say that Marc Mckee is the bar by which all skateboard graphic artists will always be measured against. He can and has done it all with the medium. His iconic artwork is what many think of when they think of the greatest skaters of the past 20 years. And for the mediocre pros of the last two decades, he put royalty checks in their pockets with graphics so good, so irreverent, so wrong that it didn’t matter whose name was attached to them. He single-handedly saved skateboarding from the skulls, skulls and more skulls era with his work for World Industries/Blind/Almost/Dwindle. And he’s still going strong.”
