Here we have new art by Andy Jenkins. Tod Swank and Andy became friends through the zine world of the 80’s and skateboarding. Andy had a zine called Bend Zine among others and featured Lettus Bee throughout (featured on this new board release). Andy and Tod exchanged zines, ideas and fun. Andy is featured in Foundation’s first video ever from 1991 called Glam Boys on Wheels: Too Cool to Skate. “I am honored and grateful to know Andy. It’s a dream come true to have him do this version of another one of my hero’s, J. Grant Brittain’s infamous “Push” image,” - Tod Swank.
Each deck is hand screened and numbered, limited to 100 pieces, made in the USA at Watson Laminates.
