Michael Leon.

Silkscreen on Found Posters, by Michael Leon.

{The OG Rasa Libre was, for the most part, the last interesting skateboard company to me. Or at least the last one I really cared about. There was a two year period where their boards were all I skated. Anyway the mastermind behind the artwork and design was MICHAEL LEON and I've been a huge fan of his ever since. He had a great little show in London a few years ago, mid Rasa, and I was blown away with how he transformed a tiny little basement beneath a little skateboard shop. Still holding a torch}.
