Elephant On The Edge: Explained

1989

Cliff-Art-Topcliff

“This was my first autobiographical graphic. That Elephant is me and I was truly on the edge. Leaving Powell Peralta and in turn being spurn by the industry, threatened with blacklisting and a lawsuit — I had fallen out of love with professional skateboarding and my reaction was to turn back around and gave the industry a big middle finger. I was 18 and the stress and angst of it all were killing me from the inside out. Little did I realize or understand that my extreme efforts to isolate myself further would only lead to a greater interest in my skating and personal life.”

— Mike V
