Partick Schidmt: The Element Perspective
Patrick Schmidt is a young illustrator from South Wales based in London. Finding inspiration from wise old owls to worn out signs and with a love for painting on big walls when not making giant roquefort burgers, Patrick has created “The Guardians” collection.
Inspired by traditional woven Tibetan Tiger rugs, thought to provide the user protection when meditating, Patrick interpreted the Element riders’ individual spiritual animals. Nick Garcia’s coyote, Brandon Westgate’s bobcat and Julian Davidson’s snake become a colorful and uniquely illustrated animal rug, all of which are laid on a series of 3 skateboard decks and tee shirts.
