MARC MCKEE

Since the late ’80s, Marc McKee has been pushing boundaries when it comes to skateboard graphics. He’s created a number of iconic graphics for brands under the OG World Industries umbrella, and his impressive output continues for Dwindle‘s board brands. Marc’s seemingly light and cartoony graphics are usually laced with dark, witty social commentary. Needless to say, we’re proud to feature this major graphic player on the pages of Concrete.
