Let us know if YOU have any ideas on button designs, we’d love to hear’em.
Finally, don’t forget to enjoy life. Spend time with friends and family, hit up the outdoors, and always, ALWAYS Go Skate.

From sock puppets to Creature, from Consolidated to “Send Help”, Todd Bratrud does what he does like a bad ass. The newest book to hit the pages of Skate Warehouse is the super awesome I Hate the Art of Todd Bratrud where Bratrud’s work is laid out in a quick and painless publication.
Today he is the owner of High Five Skateboards, but Bratrud started out as the art director for Consolidated Skateboards back in 1999. Since then and throughout the years the guy has done graphics, stickers, ads, and apparel for practically everybody worth mentioning in the Skateboard biz, from Consolidated to Flip, Birdhouse, Enjoi, Black Label, Creature, Real, Nike SB, and Volcom, Bratrud has had a part. He is also an illustrator and blogger for The Skateboard Mag. I Hate the Art of Todd Bratrud is published by Mark Batty Publishers and is available now at Skate Warehouse.

In honor of out new Independent Stage 10 Duane Peters LTD Trucks, we’ve dedicated a post to the epic Mr. Peters himself. Duane Peters in a skateboarding icon, named Transworld Skateboarding’s “Legend” in 2003 and the guy behind the invention of tricks like the “acid drop”, the “layback grind”, the “Indy air”, the “Sweeper”, the “backside layback grind revert”, the “fakie hang-up” (a.k.a. “Disaster”), the “invert revert”, the “fakie thruster”, and the “loop of death”, a full 360-degree rotation in a specially designed loop. Aside from skateboarding, Peters formed the punk rock bands the US Bombs, Political Crap, Die’ Hunns, Duane Peters Gunfight, and Exploding Fuckdolls. The Master of Disaster, Duane Peters is a legend.
SBC wrote, “14 years ago, a then brand new mag called SBC Skateboard started using the quirky illustrations of one of their staff photographer’s brothers. Now not only are Andrew Pommier’s drawings still a staple in the mag, you can also see his work gracing beer cans, shoes, pro model boards and countless other places.”
