The Drawing Boards

Sam May

This major project is detailing the rise of the Skateboarding company 'The Drawing Boards'. The company started out from a small skatespot in Croydon called Fairfield, which was world-renowned for skateboarding. Since their humble beginnings in 2006, the company has managed to expand as far as Australia, while creating a full UK team of skaters to promote the company on home soil. The project follows the creator of the company, Adam McEvoy, while providing an insight into the team members, who they are, and what they do. Many of the pictures are from sessions in the UK, yet a few are from the Team's first international exploit to the Czech Republic.'
