Hey now! Every couple weeks I will be posting some old advertisements from some of my favorite skate mags. Most of the ads will be from the 80’s and early 90’s, with some current stuff as well as some REALLY OLD SHIT. I will also be posting some old scanned photos from the mags, interviews and whatever else catches my eye. The ads in this post are all from 1988…

This was before Lucero named his company Black Label. You can see he already had the elephant logo, thumb head, cross and peace sign graphics. I have always been a fan of Lucero’s skating and artwork, he has a really cool style.

Jinx with a gnarly tail block in an even gnarlier looking pool. He stuck that right on the corner too…Sick!
