In 1985, in a small art studio on the Eastside of Santa Cruz, CA, Jim Phillips Sr. was creating images that unbeknownst to him would affect generations of artists and skateboarders to come. Of all of the iconic imagery that Jim has created; the Screaming Hand logo has stood the test of time. Thirty years after its inception, the Screaming Hand still remains an unmistakable symbol of youth and skateboard culture.

We are excited to bring you the second of two exclusive videos from the one and only Thomas Campbell! In addition to the large-scale three-dimensional mural at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History featured in the first video, Thomas produced a new sculpture, Seque, and documented its transformation from assemblage to rubber mold to wax model to bronze. This video showcases the complex lost wax technique by which Thomas and collaborating bronze master Sean Monaghan created the finished sculpture.

We are excited to bring you an exclusive video from one of our favorites, Thomas Campbel this morning! In December of 2012, Campbell collaborated with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History on "Work in Progress" where, for eleven weeks, museum visitors could watch as Thomas invented, deconstructed, and reimagined a landscape of mythic characters and stories. The result is his most ambitious work to date: a 75-foot-long three-dimensional mural in the museum's main gallery. This video, directed by Tiffany Campbell, captures the process from first stroke of paint to last and all the surprises in-between.
