Rare 1990s Twin Skateboard Art
Tim Brauch and Jason Adams Skate Art
Recently I came across this rare skate art: a pair of decks from Santa Monica Airlines which were produced in 1993, the “Wonder Twins” decks of Tim Brauch and Jason Adams — which, according to Art of Skateboarding, were done by artist Nate Carrico.

Memory Screened has a bit of the back-story around the graphic from Jason Adams:
I really connect with these decks, particularly in these colorways. The graphics really pop and they represent a particular type of skate art from the 1990’s that I particularly enjoy and connect with: those which, like American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, picked up on the classic illustrative tradition of comic book and comic strip art styles. When I think classic 1990’s skate art, this is the kind of thing I think about.
