Patrick Schmidt is a young illustrator from South Wales based in London. Finding inspiration from wise old owls to worn out signs and with a love for painting on big walls when not making giant roquefort burgers, Patrick has created “The Guardians” collection.
Inspired by traditional woven Tibetan Tiger rugs, thought to provide the user protection when meditating, Patrick interpreted the Element riders’ individual spiritual animals. Nick Garcia’s coyote, Brandon Westgate’s bobcat and Julian Davidson’s snake become a colorful and uniquely illustrated animal rug, all of which are laid on a series of 3 skateboard decks and tee shirts.

The concept of this project was sparked from the idea that by bringing my bronze work into the board series, it would provide an access point to other forms of art, and the possibility of others being inspired to make shit and be creative. To balance out the graphic action, I got to lay down some hand styled lettering, and best of all, got to hand pick my favorite shredders on the team to do graphics for. Stoked.
