Homebase Skateshop : Joy Division

who knew Lehigh Valley loved Joy Division so much? there's a lot of new designs coming up for Bethlehem Skateboarding Mecca HOMEBASE SKATESHOP but this was an old idea Andy and I had kicked around since we started working together a year ago.

we would take Joy Division's classic "unknown pleasures" LP and merge it with Bethlehem's great landmark steel factory.

i did the line work, which too a lot more thoughtful planning out than i had originally thought. once i set up some rules and language to the method, it was a blast. i simply "inversed" my pencils in photoshop.

the final collab between me and Andy. the response has been so great that we're making stickers, t-shirts, and skateboard decks with this!

don't forget, 'tis still the season where you can enter Homebase's $610 shopping spree (by purchasing a handsome counterfeit Franklin "raffle ticket" i designed). winner will be drawn Jan. 14th and they've already raised over $1000 to help build the Bethlehem Skateplaza. Every little bit helps build a place that EVERYONE can FREELY enjoy.

thank you!
