Santa Cruz Skateboards: Screaming Hand Art Show

Join Centre Distribution for an Art Show celebrating 30 years of the Screaming Hand: A tribute to the artist Jim Phillips and a skateboarding icon.

The Screaming Hand was created in 1985 by illustrator Jim Phillips Sr. and served as an overall brand image for the entire Speed Wheels line, which included Slimeballs, Bullets, and OJs. With a blood-stained compound fracture, flapping tendons and misplaced mouth piece. This aggro amputee became one of the most recognizable skate logos of all time.

In honor of the Screaming Hand logo and its creator, Jim Phillips, Santa Cruz Skateboards has invited over 48 of the world's most influential artists of the past 30 years to pay homage to this legendary graphic. For more information about Jim Phillips and the Screaming Hand visit
