R.I.P Bernie Tostenson

I have just learned that legendary skateboard graphic artist Bernie Tostenson passed away earlier this year. This man was responsible for pioneering silk-screen techniques unique to the skateboard industry as well as producing some of the most iconic imagery from the early 80's until his passing this year. Most notable are Sims' Hosoi 'rising sun' (which is still getting appropriated now!) the Brand-X 'Riot Stick' (See above. My first ever pro deck!), & various Flip boards including the Penny 'Cheech & Chong'. I think it's safe to say this man ignited my early interest in skateboard graphics & has kept me captivated ever since. R.I.P Bernie Tostenson
