Todd Francis x Element Look Away Show

Last night at Element‘s The Branch office/space in Costa Mesa, it hosted an art show for Element Advocate and veteran artist Todd Francis. Todd’s art has been gracing the decks of brands like Antihero, Stereo, New Deal, and of course Element for over 20 years. His original pieces using ink, charcoal, watercolor, and mixed media were beyond impressive to see in person. His new book, prints, and decks were up for sale—we highly recommend getting the book, some of the best skate graphics (and the Santa Vs. The Elves Christmas cards!) ever. Pizzanista, a mini ramp jam, and free drinks complemented the night!
