I think Chris Owen, who worked for Morrow, got me hooked up doing this board graphic for Todd Richards. I met Todd a few times, and was stoked on his riding. I got ideas talking to him on the phone, and he said he liked monsters, so I tried to do some sort of skate-style monster graphic. I was excited to see Todd riding the board graphic in the 98 Japan Olympics, the first time snowboarding was allowed. I went to a sports bar to watch the halfpipe, and when they showed Todd's run I was not surprised to see him riding a board with his own art. I really wanted to see him win the halfpipe, but he did not. I wish he would have tried again in 02.
