You entered a contest and won a job to be a designer. Would you want a doctor performing surgery on you that won a contest to be a surgeon?

Funny you should ask, because I sprained the pinky on my drawing hand this past August and it still hasnÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t healed properly. I canÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t make heads or tails of health insurance these days, much less afford it, so IÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__d gladly be a guinea pig if anyone needs one for use in a medical contest.

Are you proud to be from Wisconsin?

_Ñé_Ñ_??Sure, why not. I believe itÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s my Midwestern naivetÕ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ՉÕ_ë¢?Õ_뉁?ë© thatÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s enabled me to survive as long as I haveÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ô_and thatÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s saying a lot because my survival instincts are virtually nil. For example, I once accidentally rode a jet ski from Redondo Beach King Harbor to Catalina Island all by myself in 1992. I had no concept of the ocean, distance, or any other life-threatening variable at play in the channel, which pretty much enabled me to make the 30-mile solo jaunt without a hitch or pause for concern. Bravery through ignorance.

Do you think Wisconsin is proud of you? YouÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__ve drawn a lot of offensive things and were a part of a lot of shit antics in jackass. Is that what a state really wants in an ambassador?

ItÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s a state primarily known for people who proudly wear foam cheese wedges on their head. You be the judge.

Rocco, great boss or greatest boss ever?

The greatestÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ô_at least from 1991Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ô_1993. Those are still some of the most ridiculous times of my life as an artist in the skateboard industry. So much fun. Except for that one New YearÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s Eve night in 1991 when he was trying to teach me how to ride a motorbike, but even that was funny and fortuitous in its own way.

WhatÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s your favorite graphic?

Today I feel like itÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s the Zorlac John Gibson cow skull by Pushead. Not only am I a sucker for a good, strong, clean central image, but IÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__m a product of the Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__80s and this is one of those graphics that initially grabbed my impressionable eye in the skate shop then. But the Plan B Rick Howard Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ՉÕ__The DuckÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ_ՉÕ_?Õ_Չ_ follow-up graphic would definitely be a close second.

What graphic that youÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__ve drawn has sold for the most on Ebay?

Not exactly sure, but there was a NOS Powell-Peralta Frankie Hill Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ՉÕ__EastwoodÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ_ՉÕ_?Õ_Չ_ deck that sold for nearly three thousand? Probably shouldÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__ve kept a betterÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ô_and deeperÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ô_archive of my old decks from that time period.

Why did you roll your car? Please donÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t say because of a bumblebee.

ThatÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s not what I told the CHP officer. I said it was a wasp. But in reality it was the dead, dried-up husk of a crane fly fluttering on my dashboard that I at first mistook for a spider. Next thing I knew, IÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__d jumped a curb, snapped my front axle, tore through 30-feet of chain link fence, and came to a perpendicular halt just before careening into the 101 Freeway. I used to have serious insect issues, but a stint in Costa Rica made short work of all that phobic nonsense. IÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__ll take down a tarantula with a flip-flop now. I donÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t give a fuck.

In your natural state, on a scale of 1-10, 1 being fairly comfortable and 10 being a social freak, how uncomfortable are you in your own skin?

This one goes to 11, to rip an old Spinal Tap quip.

What graphic have you done that you like the least?

Fortunately it just so happens to be one for Tony HawkÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ô_the Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ՉÕ__Toe Knee HawkÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ_ՉÕ_?Õ__Ñ_Õ__Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_ë‰Õ_?ô_when he rode for Powell-Peralta, so itÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s not like that one wonÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t come back to haunt me every day for the rest of my life. I just wasnÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t that into the idea then, and my final execution was an adequate reflection of that. WasnÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t really thinking about any long-term ramifications at the time.

_Ñé_Ñ_??

How many Templeton art pieces do you own?

Two, though IÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__m kind of upset I didnÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t keep the painting of his that Jeff Tremaine and I had while living together back in the Õ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__90s. It was this super awkward nude self-portrait, and through some slap of fate it just happened to fit the exact dimensions of TremaineÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s coffee table so we placed it under the glass. IÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__m not sure where that painting is now, but I hope Tremaine had the good sense to save it.

_Ñé_Ñ_??

Do you think many people know you illustrated a book on foot surgery?

No, but then most people wouldnÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t know I once totaled my car over a dead bug either, had you not mentioned it.

_Ñé_Ñ_??

Would the foot surgery book be the only thing youÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__ve done creatively that [your parents?] arenÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__t ashamed of?

Quite possibly, though they still claim itÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s all good.

_Ñé_Ñ_??

Lastly, do you want a job here? We have a vending machine and an annual softball game. ItÕ_Õ_Ձ_ÑÓÕ_Õ__Õ_?Õ_ë‰Õ_?ôÕ_ë‰_Õ_Չ__s like a real company._Ñé_Ñ_??

If I thought you were serious I might take you up on that, if only because it might be the only way to see you on a more regular basis.
