New book Skatescape by Peter Soutullo is about visual collaboration between graphic design and skateboarding.

Orlando, Florida, USA “ May 28, 2021   skate[scape] skate + escape is a unique book capturing the creative intersection of graphic design and skateboarding. Through interviews, visuals and words, it seeks to answer the question, "Why do you skate?"

This project, years in the making, was an idea to merge Peter Soutullo's two passions: graphic design and skateboarding.The creative element that can be found throughout skateboarding has always had a unique kinship to art and design. Both can be extremely creative, expressive, rewarding, loud or quiet”whatever the hell one want it to be.

Many awesome skaters and photographers have donated photos and their stories or quotes to explain why they skate. For some, it could be an escape from real life or maybe an outlet for creative expression or just a mode of transportation to the corner store. It's different for everyone. There is no wrong or right reason to ride a skateboard. Just push.

"To outsiders, it was just wood and ink. To me, it represented everything good about art, creativity and freedom "

” Don Pendleton ” American artist and designer. Pendleton is most widely recognized for the large body of skateboard graphics (Alien Workshop, Element, Darkroom), working with high profile brands such as Vans, Element and Volcom as well as for the artwork of Pearl Jam's tenth studio album, Lightning Bolt.

This book Skatescape is a visual collaboration between graphic design and skateboarding. The connection between creativity and skateboarding is unquestionable and this book is a great example of that. This a unique collection of meticulously designed layouts, insightful words and awesome photos from amazing skateboarders like Lizzie Armanto, Mark Gonzales, Natas Kaupas, Tommy Guerrero and more.
