Although the work of Philly artist and skateboarder Thom Lessner is infused with a touch of mockery, his illustrations are undertaken seriously. Creating cartoons of his favourite bands, like the Ramones or Thin Lizzy, has become his signature style and scored him work with Shephard Fairey and various magazines. His illustrations can also be seen at the Space1026 Gallery, which is a breeding ground for new talent.
