Jim Phillips' classic Corey O'Brien graphic for Santa Cruz skateboards. One of my favorite Phillips' graphics, right in the thick of his epic 80's output. If you're a illustrator and/or a designer and don't own this book, I highly suggest getting it. The majority of the work that came out of the Phillips' Studios was good ol' pen and ink on illustration board....some of which can still be purchased at his site.

I bought one of these right when they came out (summer 1988) with some new OJ Team Rider wheels. I learned frontside grind reverts and frontside ollie reverts at the Junkyard with this board. I would love to purchase one of these (not the recent reissue), so if anyone out there has one, please get in touch....
