southside skatepark was the first indoor skatepark in houston when they opened doors for the first time some 13 years ago. earning a reputation quick as having the best set up, best shop, and best team, they've sailed high through the skateboard industry's sometimes turbulent fluctuations and stood strong as other parks and shops came and went. i've done quite a bit of art and design stuff for them over the years for tshirt and board graphics and posters and fliers for contests and demos. when ownership changed hands at the end of last year i was fortunate to be asked to continue doing art for them. these deer headed figure decks are the first thing i've done for the new owners. reminiscent of a deer head stencil i painted several years ago, as requested. just came in last week and i'm really happy with how they came out.
