10. Powell Peralta Per Welinder

Illustrator Or Designer: V. Courtlandt Johnson

VCJ made so many amazing graphics for Powell in the 80s and was probably the most influential skateboard artist of the decade. This Viking skull he did for a Per Welinder graphic was our favorite for his rare comedic application (in this case the ethnic stereotyping).
