How to Become a Skateboard Company Artist
Skateboard companies are businesses, just like any other. Although they promote a counter-
culture image, they are still concerned with basic commerce principles of producing a
product as inexpensively as possible and selling it for as much money as they can charge.
Having a top-name skater associated with the company or having the best graphics helps them
to charge more for their decks. Because they try to keep the cost of production low, they
are unlikely to give a new designer any breaks. That is why it is important to develop a
reputation as a popular independent skateboard-culture artist.
