Another one for the long list of RVCA ANP posts. The RVCA Samurai Vintage Dye T-Shirt at Skate Warehouse is in store and online. This t-shirt rocks the patterns of another truly gifted artist kicking it with the RVCA Artist Network Program. George Thompson has been making art a while now, and a lot of it is real dope. Watch a couple videos, check a couple pics, and head to SW to shop for more RVCA.

Primarily a tattoo artist, Hendricks is also an artist at large, from original paintings and drawings to industrial design. Tattooing professionally since 1994, Hendricks got his start in his mid teens by practicing his skills on gang members he grew up with. He’s only grown since then, but you can see in his style that he was forever influenced by the culture of his community. Today Hendricks divides his time between skateboarding and surfing and making art.
Perhaps most uniquely, Hendricks is a maker of tattoo machines. These things are gnarly. Not only do they do their job, but they’re works of art. Each one is custom made with hand wound coils and loads of detail.
Below we’ve featured a few of Hendricks pieces and a video about the dude. Head over to SW to check out the RVCA collection and grab the tee.
The artist Matt Gordon is originally from Michigan, where he still resides today. He’s been making art for some time and has worked with RVCA through the Artist Network Program, on shirts including the RVCA Mainland Buffet T-Shirt, which we’ve currently got in stock.
The art is weird, the guy is weirder. You can see why we like it. Check out the RVCA video interview below and head over to Skate Warehouse to grab the shirt.
