For this edition of Brainstorm we ventured back up to the San Francisco Bay Area and paid a visit to long time DGK collaborator Eric Bailey in his studio in Oakland. We discussed his early inspirations, fine art vs. graphic design, and his ties to DGK. Eric is a super talented and versatile artist that’s helped craft the look of many of our board series over the years. Be on the look out for more DGK projects with Bailey in the future.
The crew was recently up in SF and got this sick clip at Thrasher’s skate park.
Keelan breaks down all things skate including his inspiration for new tricks and the design process behind signature products like his Mountain Dew x DGK pack and his upcoming sunglasses with Ashbury and paints the picture of a pro skateboarder on the major come-up in this new video from Network A.
