There are very few artists that can claim that their artwork has helped to define an entire subculture and era. Vernan Courtlandt Johnson (VCJ) can easliy stand by that claim as his iconic illustrations shaped and represented one the of the most influential skateboard brands of the 80s, Powell Peralta. Still to this day, his illustrations are out of this world and in terms of illustrative skulls, he's still number one in my book. Mad respect for you VCJ.
