So Seb, how did you get so shit hot at drawing pictures is it down to practise or were you just born that way?

I’ve always been into drawing, I been practising all my life, so I guess it’s a bit of both!

Skateboarding has been part of your life from an early age, how do you think this influences your art?

Since I can remember I’ve skateboarded and drawn, they came together about the same time for me. Skateboarding influenced only my creative art, where i would draw from my mind and not robot copy, like the portraits i draw. Seeing unique art on t-shirts and decks as a whipper snapper and now, definitely inspires me to keep drawing from my mind.

Who do think made the best ever deck graphic?

I’ve always been influenced by Powell Peralta artist Vernon Courtlandt Johnson, aka VCJ. Gota be The ripper and the Bones Brigade graphics!

Which is the best deck you have ever skated?

I’ve had a lot so its pretty tough to say, would have to say i learnt a lot of tricks on my Creature vs Putrid deck.

Which company would you most love to work with on a design?

Probably Santa cruz or Creature or Black label haha

Do you have an all time favourite skater?

When I was younger I had and skated every Bucky Lasek Birdhouse deck that came out!, but it has to be Christian Hosoi!

Skateboarding goes in and out of fashion along with width of the jeans, do you long for the day when the jeans are 30” across the bottom again or are you glad to keep things tight?

Haha I’ve been through the days where baggy was cool then spray on tight were cool, I’m glad to say I’m happy the fashion is leveling out.
