Simon Evans has a story to tell. According to an inspiring interview with The San Francisco Bay Guardian Evans, moved from London to San Francisco to skateboard professionally. It was here that he realized skateboarding wasn’t ‘it’ for him–so he began to yearn for more. He turned to writing first. And he worked at it to the point that “every word was very difficult.” Then he landed smack on a sketchbook–a world he hadn’t ever really decided to touch before–and decided he would draw something. And draw he did. See for yourself.
