A new fundraising project at Southsea Skatepark is currently building momentum with some quite incredible pieces of work coming in from very big names in skateboarding, design, photography and illustration. The current line-up includes J Grant Brittain, David Carson, Ben The Illustrator, Jethro Haynes, Ollie Munden and more announced soon.
The artwork for sale will include signed photographs, prints and tee shirts. These will be available in limited quantities only from early April 2012.
Strong Island will keep everyone informed of the exact dates when these will be available to purchase. Big shout goes out to Barry Abrook who has been instrumental in contacting some of the names mentioned above to get onboard and support the skatepark.
