Show Your Tits

Back in 2003 I had the opportunity of a life time to go intern for Rome Snowboards. During my internship I designed the Rome Artifact, which went on to be a popular board in the Rome line. Anyway, this past year, Rome had a shop kid contest, and the winner got their idea put on an Artifact. The idea was to think up a phrase that would work well with the new Artifact graphic. Well, low and behold I won. Not being a shop kid, they didn't honor it. Luckily some other shop kid had the same idea so the board was made anyway. Today, the good people at Rome SDS sent me out the board! It's funny, the past year I have been working on Forum snowboards, and to this date I have not received one of them. You would think after a year of hard work, they would at least send me one. I guess they are too busy licking their wounds and counting whatever pennies they have left. Against'em

ya know it's an authentic Appel piece since you have had the phrase "show your tits" on the bottom of your BMX bike for over a decade.
