O’MAHONEY MONDAYS: JIM PHILLIPS

80's Road Rash Cover

Here is the cover of Roadrash comics 1988. As you can see, skater etiquette hasn’t changed much in 22 years, and the ‘Skate or Die’ theme still rules. This magazine was produced by Richard Novak of Santa Cruz Skateboards. The artwork is by Jim Phillips. Phillips’ art was first published in Surfer magazine in 1962. He has produced skate deck art for Santa Cruz NHS since 1975. – WORDS BY JAMES O’MAHONEY
