In the 70’s and 80’s Jim Phillips‘s art could be found all over surfboards and skateboards. Since 1975 Jim has worked as the art director for Santa Cruz Skateboards. His art has become synonymous with action sports and the counter culture that it has produced.
Following in his fathers footsteps, Jimbo Phillips has also become a world renowned artist. Known for bold, catchy and eye popping illustrations Jimbo has been working in the actions sports world for over two decades and has offered his artistic talents to sports like surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding.
This past season Line Skis called upon Jimbo to do a graphic for them. Line’s Marketing Coordinator, Ryan McBride , said “When we were thinking of who we wanted to design our first skate-deck construction ski, all we could think of was classic 80â€™s skate art. Who would be more perfect for that look than the legendary Jim and Jimbo Phillips? No one. Luckily it worked out and we were fortunate enough to have their designs put on our Afterbangs!”
