With the sun beginning to tease with ideas of long days spent at the beach and hanging out at that unrealistically cool and imaginary surf shack, my artistic cravings start to lean towards the work of legendary surf artist Jim Phillips. No other artist captures the feeling of easy-going summers better, with his eye grabbing comic book style full of bold colours, clean brushwork and surrealist imagery. His blue screaming hand (illustrated for Santa Cruz skateboards) goes down as one of the most recognisable images in commercial surf/skate art, but there’s much more Jim Phillips and it’s well worth picking up one of the many books available covering his awesome work.
