Andy Howell: Art, Skateboarding and Life
"Since I was a boy I have have dreamt of flying..." exclaims Andy Howell in the intro to his new multimedia masterwork Art, Skateboarding and Life. Through the help of his imagination which he names his "flying machine[...], an old winged paint box with Indy trucks and soft urethane wheels and homemade wings" he fully achieves his dream as he takes you on an exhilarating journey through the origins of DIY, movements in arts and action sports, and nascent youth cultures. This limited first edition hardcover, hand painted by the artist, has over 300 pages of gorgeous visuals, contributions from Tony Hawk, Shepard Fairey, Patricia Arquette, Ed Templeton, and David Choe, among others, and also comes with two DVDs that feature fascinating scenes of Howell's work in action on the deck and as an artist.
