Steve Caballero

Shortly after completing the sculpt of Jamie I got a PM from Steve Caballero. I didn't believe it was him at first. LOL He wanted me to sculpt him. I freaked out. I honestly had never been complimented like that in my life. After reading his message, I called all my friends and family to tell them. I totally nerded out. But jeez Steve is a living legend so how else was I supposed to react? He's one of THE dudes that molded skateboarding in to what it is now. I believe Mark Gonzales said that Steve is probably the best all-around skater ever. Needless to say I couldn't wait to get started on the commission. Especially when he showed me the photo he wanted it based on. A vintage shot taken by Ted Terrebonne at Winchester!!!

Doing this sculpt had to be one of the most gratifying experiences of my artistic career. I still think about it frequently and say to myself... 'Oh my god I did a sculpt for Stevie Cab!'


Kind of the middle:

OMG!!! Thanks for the opportunity Steve!


  1. I think this one is my favorite.

  2. amazing !!!!! scultures and skate , it is my first time to see in this way .Cool !!!!plus Steve Caballero is one of my heros in skateboarding.

  3. i spoke too soon and didn't see the caballero piece...oh my god that is amazing,just awesome and i want one of these too.........

  4. Wonderful work. Super cool. There's a Neil Blender sculpture dying to get out of a ball of wax somewhere.

  5. I've been thinking about trying to get a few of these produced. The problem is trying to keep the cost down and the quality up. I'd rather not compromise.

  6. Incredible. I would gladly spend top dollar on an amazing sculpture like this. It would fit perfectly in my office along with my deck collection. You've got something here! I look forward to seeing more creations. Best of luck.
