Califari is thrilled to present new strain art for FATSO - a strain that many of our growing friends from Nor Cal have have had on their menus for these past few harvests. The Fatso nugs are coming out well.... Fat & delicious - so the name is no surprise and we decided it was high time to make the design!
This time we found a legendary California legacy surf skate artist straight outta Santa Cruz: Jimbo Phillips.
Here is more about California Legend: Jimbo Phillips!
Jimbo Phillips, an artist from Santa Cruz, California. Born and raised in the art world. My father, Jim Phillips, designed all the artwork for Santa Cruz Skateboards in the 70’s and 80’s and was the creator of the iconic “Screaming Hand” logo.
At an early age I began working for my father doing graphics for the skateboard industry, creating eye-popping artwork for t-shirt designs, decals, magazine ads, and skateboards. In the early 90s I started my own graphic art business continuing to work for skateboard companies as well as other major brands such as Toyota, Nike, Snickers, Volcom and so many more. Along the way I’ve won some awards for graphics as well as displaying in art shows internationally in Europe, South America and Canada. In 2005 my art was featured on Tony Hawk American Wasteland video game for the Xbox and Playstation2 where the game weaves in and out of my comic book format. I currently have signature artist series collaborations with Bell helmets, Electric visuals, Volcom clothing, Puma shoes etc. I also have a game app on Itunes called Skatetrash!
