Los Angeles, California
December 27th, 1968
Artist, Anti-hero and acclaimed pigeon aficionado, Todd Francis has been consistently producing some of the most legendary doodles in the world of skateboard graphics for the last four decades. Originally hailing from Los Angeles, Todd actually started his career up in Northern California where he began designing boards for San Francisco’s highly respected Deluxe stable of brands. Cutting his teeth with various pro models for the Real and Stereo imprints, Todd’s work really seemed to come into its own when he joined forces with the notorious Antihero Skateboards crew in the mid-90s where he continues to pumping out pigeons and the like to this day. Known for his lethal combination of armor-piercing wit and intricate technical detail, Todd’s unique visions can also be seen in collaborations with Vans, Huf, Oakley and Firestone Walker. A longtime friend of Stance, we couldn’t be happier to have Todd finally join the ranks of our Punks & Poets family as an official full-fledged member.
