Dustin Ammons

The term Skate Rat is often ascribed to the crustiest of skaters, the human recycling bins that roll by on mismatched wheels and a questionable amount of stains on their griptape (and body).

Far from that rendition is where you’ll find Dustin Ammons’ cute, fuzzy shredders. Dustin flips the all too common stereotype that rats are dirty, unhygienic pests, transforming them through simple and emotive cartooning that teaches us the real truth: rats are just like us.

I like how their work mirrors the universal in skateboarders. Capturing truisms in cartoon form can be fickle but Ammons gets the basics down in a way that feels introspective and whole.
