Same... Todd's the shit! He can draw anything and you can automatically tell it's him because it'll be especially sick in his own way.

Gratzi.
ESPN's been delivering the news we want to hear soon after events like this happen, which is cool, but I feel like it isn't their place? Or it's just strange that it's coming from this company, not so much you, Chris.

Stand Strong Screenprint

(http://bytheswordskateboards.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/stand_strong_screenprint.jpg)

The luminous metallic silver ink is hand-pulled by JRF on acid-free, 65 lb. jet black French Paper. Suitable for framing and measuring 18″ x 24″ overall, the edition will be limited to only 100 prints.

The “Stand Strong” screenprints will be available Summer 2010.
