Painter, Graphic Artist, and Element Skateboard Brand Collaborator Chad Eaton, better known to many by one of his more popular art personas "Timber", joins the podcast to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in LA with a rough start on his early family years, to creating a successful art brand of his own as well as working for major clients all over the world. Growing up in southern California in the early 90s, Chad was introduced to skateboarding at an early age and quickly fell in love with the freedom and since of belonging it provided for someone who usually felt on the outside. Although Chad had always been a creative kid, and his mother was an artist herself, it was years later that he found his way back to the therapeutic practice of sketching, painting, and creating in general. After a while he got the opportunity to create some branding for a skate shop that would end up leading him to some of his now famous characters and to the world of Timber the artist. With the arrival of Etsy, he soon found himself in high demand for all of the apparel he was making and it would end up leading him to forming a long lasting relationship with the skateboard company Element. During our conversation we talk about how Chad first created the world and all the characters that live in it he has become known for under the Timber moniker, what it's been like having such a long lasting and successful relationship with a skate brand like Element, the trips he's had all over the world creating murals and doing art tours, and the advice he gives to others who have big creative dreams.
