We are very excited to announce that Boyd and I will soon be working on a new design for the Bear vs Man Round 2…AND the artwork for it will be by Jimbo Phillips.
It was a huge honour that Jimbo agreed to take on this project for us, as him and his father Jim are LEGENDS for the artwork that they have contributed to the skateboard and snowboard industry. Here’s a short bio from Jimbo’s website:
Jimbo is an artist from Santa Cruz, California, who was literally raised on eye popping graphics. His father, Jim Phillips, designed all the artwork for Santa Cruz Skateboards in the 70’s and 80’s and was the creator of the iconic “Screaming Hand” logo.
At age 18 Jimbo began working for his father doing graphics for the skateboard industry (Santa Cruz Skateboards), creating eye-popping graphics for t-shirt designs, decals, magazine ads, and skateboards.
In 1990 Jimbo started his own graphic art business for skateboard companies, designing logos for local surf shops, and silk-screening t-shirts and posters for local punk and metal bands. His client list grew and now includes great companies such as Santa Cruz Skateboards-Surfboards, Fox Racing, Sessions, DC Shoes, Fat Wreck Chords, Bell Helmets and Natal Design (Japan).
