Some of you may remember Louie Lopez as the little shit from Flip’s Extremely Sorry. Well he was good then and even better now, he’s gotten a little taller developing some grown-man style with a gnarly bag of tricks to boot. Don’t mess with Louie Lopez, he might pee-slap you, just ask Curren Caples.
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.
