HOLD OUT YOUR HANDS
by Craig 'Skibs' Barker (Costa Mesa,CA) - www.skibsart.com

This month we have a really different design from our normal stuff...
this one is NOT die-cut.. it is a solid rectangle.. and it features the retro-cool and awesome art of CRAIG 'SKIBS' BARKER from Costa Mesa,CA. Skibs is an awesome guy...he is a well respected artists in the Orange County area of California..but world wide is recognized as the Drummer for the retro punk band THE STITCHES , who started in the OC area in the early/mid 1990's... they have toured the country and Europe a few times and still continue to play super fun and punishing live shows. Craig grew up in Southern California during the early 80’s and the explosions of both punk rock and surfing culture. With a healthy dose of punk flyers, album covers, and surfing magazines buzzing through his head, Craig began making flyers and t-shirts for his friends and his own punk bands. Fast-forward to today; Craig’s most recent paintings infuse his long-standing love for painting and rendering the human female figure with his punk fueled graphic design. Mixing different approaches, techniques, and mediums, he creates a sense of memory, personal history, and appreciation for the female form. Combining elements of pop culture, literary censorship, and a positive mental attitude, he creates layered scenes of voyeuristic mischief. Craig’s work explores the junctions between past and present, memory and imagination, fantasy and reality, while creating a dialog between image and viewer. Craig has shown work and done installations at venues around So.Cal including Thinkspace Gallery, C.A.V.E Gallery, Art Whino Gallery, & Kinsey/Desforges in Los Angeles. He has a website with links to his happenings and access to his paintings at www.skibsart.com
