About the Art- B-Pro by Hannah Stouffer

Hannah Stouffer has designed another beautiful B-Pro board. The full length snakeskin textured topsheet compliments the exotic colorful snake lurking beneath the surface. You can almost feel the heat of the jungle rising up from the board. This graphic is hot, like killer snakeskin shoes and handbag hot, like riding as good as you look hot. With Hannah creating the artwork for the B-pro, the hi-end performance is matched by hi-end graphics. See more at: Grandarray.com

GNU: Wheres home? Wheres was it before?
California Raisin’ Hell vs. Aspen, CO

GNU: Whats your process and how did you arrive there?
Research and forget, trial and error, learning through doing, snacks, whiskey, draw something, spill everything, guess and check… and a little magic.

GNU: Can you tell us a little about the boards graphic you did for gnu?
Barrett Christy and I always come up with some amazing super saturated, animalistic graphics for her, and this years theme is no different… its like a passion fruit, tropical 80’s rave in the jungle, behind the scenes of Miami Vice.  I started the piece off with the dueling tiger illustrations and just kind of lost my mind thinking about Lisa Frank, listening to Pantera and everything just kind of exploded out of that.

GNU: Do you snowboard?
I’ll give it a >1 per season.  Its nothing personal… I promise.  To tell you the truth, I was always more of the snow pants and earmuff ski-bunny type than a rip and shredder-  but that doesn’t mean I’m not SO fast.  Snow is just kinda cold these days, I get out there in the winters in Aspen… but I think I’ll stick to doing graphics and you guys can get out there and do some tail side, 540, 360 nose spin, sailfishes for me, cool??

GNU: What gets you out of bed in the morning, what inspires you?
Usually my dog, some black tea and deadlines- but I’m also pretty into getting up and at em… I’ve never been very good at sleeping, and I’m always excited and anxious about ideas and projects that I have going. I love this shit and I just can’t quit it.

GNU: Currently listening to?
Danzig, Trina, Gucci Mane, Thin Lizzy, Sleep, Iron Maiden, King Diamond… the usual…

GNU: Currently looking at?
My computer screen, words with friends, The Man Myth and Magic encyclopedia set, some old fantasy books- LOTS of books actually…

GNU: Whats next?
Moving, Changing, Raider Nation, Permanent Vacation..

Always… to a demon, a gremlin, a goblin, a vampire, a ghost, and an alien- with a brain about this big.. and especially to Joseph for making it all come together- I owe it all to him. Thank you.
