Wins is proud to announce the global release of Look Away: The Art of Todd Francis, by Seb Carayol and Todd Francis, on June 26th at the Hennessey + Ingalls in Los Angeles. For the past twenty years, Todd Francis has been creating iconic skateboard graphics for Antihero, Element, Real and Stereo among others.
While most people are familiar with Todd’s new and classic board graphics, this book reveals a wider palette of Todd’s techniques and styles. With more than 200 reproductions of classic and never-before-seen decks, illustrations, paintings, sketches and even suicide-themed Christmas decorations, Look Away, examines Todd Francis’ impactful career.
“Seeing my work collected into book form is a huge honor for me. Look Away is sure to brighten many people’s days, and ruin more than a few as well.” – Todd Francis
“I swear there were times we got so carried away with ourselves that we really thought we could bring down skateboarding with one terrible idea.” – Julien Stranger on Todd Francis.
