Skateboarding and art have always gone firmly hand in hand and their influence on each other over the years has been nothing short of revolutionary. Megan Andersen is an artist and skater who is very much on a mission to continue the marriage between the two doing exactly that with her "Sincerely Skateboarding" coloring book series. When Megan approached GEO to do a skate coloring book inspired by our fREE THE STrEETS meetups, we absolutely jumped at the chance. What resulted was a super sick creation showcasing epic scenes and moments that as Megan says, will now live forever in this coloring book! We're so excited to release it but for now You Gotta Know: Megan Andersen!!
GEO: Wadup Megan?! We heard your in NYC right now. What’s the plan while you’re in the big apple?
Megan: Hey GEO fam! This is the first time I’ve come out to New York since I was 13. I’m looking forward to skating and seeing “The Starry Night” by Vincent Vangogh at the MoMa.
GEO: We are so stoked to release our coloring book collab with you tomorrow?! We’re siked that it’s based on our fREE THE STrEETS skate meetups. Where did you get the inspo to start making the coloring books? Tell us a bit about the fREE THE STrEETS coloring book!
Megan: The idea came from my friend Hex during COVID when discussing ways to make money with my art. However, it’s become more than that. I enjoy creating time capsules of my favorite skaters, spots, or moments. That is why I am so excited for my collab with fREE THE STrEETS. There are so many rad people and moments that are now preserved in a coloring book!
GEO: Aliens or dinosaurs?
Megan: Takis and string cheese.
GEO: We love the music you pick for your skate edits. How do you go about picking the perfect tune for the clips?
Megan: They are both creative outlets and they merge in so many ways. Anywhere from creating a board graphic to having an art show featuring skateable objects, like Professional skateboarder Chad Muska.
