Growing up surrounded by skateboarding, punk rock and art makes it easy to connect with the work of others that do as well. You don't have to know the artists story... if these elements are shared, the art becomes magnetic.
I was always enamored by his poster work, floored by his sculptures, and would always be tempted to buy an album he had done the artwork for (whether I had heard the music or not).
Ryan August will always be an asset and inspiration to all that is good in Columbia, SC. Rest in peace.
