For What It’s Worth


‘For What it’s Worth’ is a series of 9 skateboard decks that have been influenced by present day circumstances of some of the worlds most iconic animals. My intention with this body of work was do something where I give back. I wanted to not only inform myself but as well those viewing my work on what’s currently happening with animal populations, what obstacles certain species face and in turn share the ways in which we can help.  I wanted to shed light on these matters and for what it’s worth, I believe that through awareness and sharing of facts –help and change are possible.
