On display were works by Papermonster and Austin David Myers.
We look forward to the next show in the second half of 2010.
April 17, 6-9 pm, reception includes: beverages, auction and sales of skateboard art, raffles , and five short documentaries: premieres of “Girls on Girls” (new doc on women punk music pioneers of late ’70’s – early ’80’s SF music scene) by Patrick O’Neil and “Skate this Art – Make This Art” by Geo Epsilanty; the return of “Hit the Decks” by Caleb Gatlin and “YAA Girlz and the Deadly Sparks” by Patrick O’Neil (doc about all female skate-punk clubs of SF in early ’80’s), and “DIY” by Chris Silva.
The audience was there to bid on decks and donate to support the local charity, Roaddawgz:
They provide a youth drop-in center in the heart of the Tenderloin. I met the Director of Roaddawgz, Machiko Saito, and look forward to collaborating on joint philanthropic projects through the 5% Fund in the near future.
I met a lot of people at the event who support the mission of ADM and our mission to produce unique artwork on skate decks, while supporting related causes and charities. Something that really struck me while I made my way through the crowd was the community feel. everyone seemed to have a childhood relationship with the film maker, artist and/or skateboarder. It felt like one big family.
As an organization, ADM will look to attend more of the charitable art shows in the months ahead. So, if you have a show, please reach out and let us know what we can do to support it.
ADM Skateboards has an amazing opportunity to team up with sk8ology and display our amazing deck graphics at the ASR Tradeshow this weekend.

ADM Skateboards has been out on the streets for exactly a year now. As we look back at the past year we ask ourselves, “What do we have to show for ourselves?”
Well, we think we have a pretty good idea…
Check out the photo slideshow to see the places that ADM Skateboards has been in only a short year.
Thank you to everyone who has shown their support. There are a lot of people who we don’t have pictures of and we know they have been cool places too. Feel free to send any pictures of you and your ADM gear to firstname.lastname@example.org
