SPECIAL CRUD Contest: Todd Francis Original Painting
Here's how it's done: Order a SPECIAL CRUD tee at Equal Dist and you're automatically entered. Another way to enter is to tag #specialcrud on a photo showing someone who'd look good in a Special Crud tee on Instagram. Basically, we encourage you to have some fun with this and to not turn this into a selfie shooting spree. And if you've already bought a tee, you're automatically entered too!
We'll be announcing the winner @toddfrancisart and @equaldist next Tuesday, Feb 11th. Thanks to everyone for getting behind SPECIAL CRUD...lots more to come in the future from everyone's favorite diseased pigeon.
Painting Size: 5.5" x 8.5"

Todd Francis: A Year In Decks...
Todd Francis' upcoming new book, "Look Away, The Art of Todd Francis" will be out early 2014 and was completed at the very beginning of 2013. It'll be the first book spanning Todd's entire career from DLX to SPECIAL CRUD.
Todd's a busy guy and this year alone, he created these graphics below for skateboarders that just missed entry into his book. Thanks, man... nice work!
Happy 2014, ya'll! - Equal Dist
He also made this hand-painted deck below (sample pig-shape made by Yuta Koide/Shakastics for the Solitary Arts/Equal Dist), which raised $400, benefiting his daughters softball team earlier in 2013.

Don't be an asshole. Wear Special Crud.
Available now and pre-books open exclusively through Equal Dist.
