Since 1999 LA-based artist Skullphone has been sketching, pasting, painting, posting, and, well, basically putting his iconic image on everything everywhere. This weekend the artist is releasing a capsule collection created in collaboration with action sports giant Volcom, which includes a button-up, tees, [denim], and socks. The whole thing is gonna kick off this Saturday at the Pac Sun on Broadway right here in NYC where the artist is going to be giving away his art, screenprinting stuff, giving away stickers and buttons, all kinds of rad stuff. Thanks to Skullphone himself we got ahold of some of the tees and socks ahead of time and we’re stoked to screenprint some of our own stuff this weekend! We caught up with him to chat about taking the train in LA, listening to Operation Ivy, and the Sex Pistols and a bunch more.
