Art Major: Rip the Ripper

-These images are from the recent event Rip the Ripper, which showcased different artist's reworkings of the iconic Powell logo.  The one on the left is by Shepard Fairey and, interestingly, shows the ripper tearing through Fairey's second-most iconic print. The painting on the right is from Don Pendleton, whose signature style shaped the look of Alien Workshop at a time when I was very much a fan of the Sovereign Sect. Check out the rest of the pieces, including works by legendary skaters Steve Caballero and Lance Mountain, here.
