1988  Blockhead Skateboards  Model: Sam Cunningham Pro Model  Specs: ?"x?", 7-ply maple, various stain colors, wood by Madrid.  Printing: Blockhead screen shop Roseville.

The art influence is obviously from the famous 1960's San Francisco psychedelic poster art guru Wes Wilson (My new hero).

These boards have a retro 1950's feel to them, some of the fonts and styles, especially the colours are very current now

1988  Blockhead Skateboards  Model: Sam Cunningham Mini Pro Model  Specs: 7-ply maple, various stain colors, wood by Madrid.  Printing: Blockhead screen shop Roseville.  NOTES: This was pretty much when I had successfully formulated "my own style" by mixing several influences: psychedelic poster art, graffiti, and street punk attitude. Blockhead officially had a solid brand identity now. I veguely remember that the snake head had some sort of influence from a Schmitt Stix Reese Simpson…
