Product Of The Month
Where will Brian Anderson be in four years? After reading a recent interview, it looks like he might be doing more of exactly what you're looking at right now. His next move is into design, and this new boards series from Girl, hand-painted by BA, is just a sign of more to come. "Basically, I want to skate for like four more years, I hope," he said in his interview on the CCS website. "I'm trying to slowly move into the design world, and New York is a good place to do it. I am so stoked." Yeah, after 10 years in SF, he'll also be moving to NY. Soon one of the best tre flips in the game will be meeting the streets of one of the best places in the world. Get ready.
But for those of you wondering how the series for this month's Product Of The Month came about, it was really quite simple: Brian already had the paintbrush in hand, Girl just provided the canvas. "Brian had been getting more and more involved in graphics. I knew he'd been painting a bunch, so we had the idea of him hand-painting some graphics," Girl TM Sam Smyth said. "We sent him a huge canvas with board shapes traced on them and some cash for supplies. The rest was entirely him. We didn’t ask for anything specific. He just went for it." Seems like BA has always just gone for it, never giving a shit about what anyone thinks. And that's just one of the reasons he'll always be one of our all-time favorites. Add the BA's OGs boards series to that same list.
