O’MAHONEY MONDAYS: T.A.Z.

O'Mahoney Mondays

1975 saw the first and best skate art from Jim Evans (aka T.A.Z). Evans’ early work in the 1960’s included comic strips for the L.A. Free Press. He also drew Slow Death Funnies and Tales From The Tube collaborating with Rick Griffin. This beauty is the back cover from the 1975 Skateboard Handbook, an ad for Cadillac Wheels. Here the dude is barefoot and handdraggin’ the snake run. Evans went on to do many skateboard ads as well as the poster for the World Professional Skateboard Championships at the Long Beach Arena. – WORDS BY JAMES O’MAHONEY
