|Andy Jenkins and the Cat in The Hat design for Jason Lee...|
|Gabriel Rodriguez Graphic|
Andy recalls that “ I took the trucks and wheels off a plastic Makaha my mom had bought me years before at Sears or someplace, mounted them on the maple, then painted a graphic on the top of the thing.” Andy Jenkins has worked with Rocco, SMA, 101, World Industries, and he is now the Art Director at Girl Skateboards.
Andy Jenkins is the guy behind the “Cat In the Hat/Grinch Blind Jason Lee decks”, the “Gabriel Rodriguez Grenade deck” and many others.
And he is also the main feature of the first episode of SkateBoarder’s new web feature, “Raiders of the Archives”, where they go and dig through the archives of professional skaters, artist, companies, and photographers to find those rare skate treasures that have been buried or collecting dust and haven’t been seen in years.
So kudos for SkateBoarder Magazine (actually that's the second time in a month from isTia) for bringing this up and let us share a moment with Andy Jenkins, a guy who has been in the skate industry for more than 20 years and has created some of skateboarding’s most iconic graphics.
