Artist Evan Hecox has been on the Chocolate Skateboards design program since 1997. Snowboarders of a certain age will remember Hecox’s ground breaking work for Twist Snowboard Clothing back in the day.
Now, with the release his new Vagabond Series for Kenny Anderson, Mark Johnson, Gino Ianucci, Raven Tershy, Vincent Alvarez, Chico Brenes, Justin Eldridge, Elijah Berle and Stevie Perez, it’s to let him tell his own Chocolate story.
That first Chocolate car series was done from photos I took of cars that I would see on the street. I used to live in the Mission District in San Francisco and I would walk or ride my bike around and take Polaroid photos of things that interested me. I’ve always had a fascination with old cars, especially ones that anyone has customized slightly or ones that are damaged, primer painted, multi-colored, or with old faded logos.
For the rest of Evan’s thoughts on skateboard graphcis and more images of the stunning Vagabond series, follow the jump.

Yes, pro snowboarders get paid to wear the clothes they wear, but sometimes it’s interesting to hear them explain just why they like to wear what they wear. In this edit Alex Yoder explains the Patagonia Untracked Kit and he makes it sound pretty good.
Spy is rolling out its third collab with The Seventh Letter and this time the Platoon goggle features the art of Jersey Joe, aka RIME.
RIME’s complex characters—inspired by Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, Looney Tunes, and comic strips—are intended to live in the grittiness of the outdoors rather than a sterile gallery, making the Platoon the perfect open air canvas for his lines. With classic graffiti style and an irreverent approach to everything he does, the SPY + RIME Platoon is part of the ever-evolving curation between the world-renowned Seventh Letter Crew and SPY.
