So for ages now Phil's been banging on about getting some of the friends in the art world to do some clothing for us. After much delay (things take time and stuff gets in the way, sorry!), we're fully stoked to have a t'shirt in our collection with an original piece of Michael C. Hsiung artwork.
Michael is an artist from LA, known for his distinct style, drawing rotund men with beards, mythological creatures, and running the Vans Art Blog. Phil has known Michael for a few years now and the two have been in numerous art shows together. With his Can't Skateboard Club tee dropping, Phil thought it would be good idea to interview Michael. So we told him to do it.
The Can't Skateboard Club t'shirt by Michael is available to buy online here.
Hey Mike, how's life in LA?
Hey Phil! So far, so good, so what as I always say. But seriously, things are good in LA at the moment – they haven’t raised my rent, the weather is sunny, and weed is legal. Other than that just really trying to keep the art life going. Now that I live in a neighbourhood outside of Los Angeles, I find I’m enjoying the smaller community vibe and quiet streets - just gotta get myself outside more.
When did you start skateboarding? Do you still skate?
