415 - The Collection with Huck Gee - Part 7: Sket One

David Defeo

The Collection returns with special guest, Sket One, whose varied career has pushed him to become a financially grounded and creatively unstoppable artist. Starting in graffiti and expanding into designing the Orange Bowl Sket One stays involved in every avenue of creativity he can to keep opening new doors and challenging the boundaries of every medium he works with. Huck Gee brings some insight into Beijing and how he set up his latest gallery show with Clutter Magazine. This part of The Collection explores how an artist interacts with their customers and the freedom (and hard work) waiting for anyone who wants to be in complete control of their career. Mark, Huck, and Sket One bring together their collective thirty plus years of experience in every aspect of the designer toy world to set the standard for how an artist can succeed in their own path.
