Siren Series

In the next couple weeks, the Siren series will be hitting shops. This series was done by Columbus' own Michael Newton. If you re involved in skateboarding in any way out in the midwest, then you've no doubt came across Mike. He's held down various industry jobs over the years and since Columbus holds us down so hard, and the fact that his art is amazing, it made sense to bring him on for a series. Keep your eyes peeled for this series, and check out the rest of his work HERE.
