This rough sketch of the Stoned Rider concept illustration (WIP) is inspired by and dedicated to two of my personal artist heros, Jim Phillips and Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.

Graphic artist Jim Phillips is the creator of the iconic Screaming Hand and famous for his influencing Surf, Skate & Rock Art and the unambiguous reason why I work as an illustrator. Mr. Ed Roth created the legendary Rat Fink and was a key figure of the Kustom Kulture as well as the hot rod era. The illustration is supposed to work as a part of a future band merch concept.

The illustration “Screaming Eye” is my tribute to Jim Phillips and my interpretation of his world famous Screaming Hand – an icon of the entire skateboarding subculture.

Jim Phillips (who is a renowned graphic designer and artist for more than four decades in skateboarding and surfing) inspired me since I knew him and his work influenced my professional life as a freelance illustrator.
