A tribute to the artist Jim Phillips and a skateboarding icon.

Artwork by Michael Gaughan

"In 1985, in a small art studio on the Eastside of Santa Cruz, CA, Jim Phillips Sr. was creating images that unbeknownst to him would affect generations of artists and skateboarders to come. Of all of the iconic imagery that Jim created; the Screaming Hand logo has stood the test of time. Thirty years after its inception, the Screaming Hand still remains an unmistakable symbol of youth and skateboard culture.

In honor of Jim Phillips Sr. and the Screaming Hand logo, we have invited over 48 of the world’s most influential artists of the past 30 years to interpret and pay homage to this iconic image.
