80s lovers, rejoice: Curbside Skateboards is bringing old-school back to skate graphics with art from Jimbo Phillips. These once-ubiquitous designs are bright, bold and full of character--like a comic book.

Jimbo Phillips' skate decks for Curbside Skateboards are a welcome throwback to a more colorful era. Characterized by the same bold, expressive lines, witty details and color that first fed our imaginations in the 80s, this skate deck art is a perfect balance between realist, cartoonist and storyteller.

Implications - Curbside Skateboards really have a dual role as a functional piece of urban transportation and art works. The art was created by Jimbo Phillips.
