When most people think of Olympic skateboarders they think of jocks with energy drinks sponsors and a stereotypical athlete’s mindset. However, within the mix of the Nyjahs and Leticias there are some skaters, like our friend Poppy Starr, who are able to evade the jockish mentality.
Poppy is constantly flexing her creativity and artistic ability by animating her illustrations for skate videos, ripping on the piano, and now, making jewelry while she recovers from her injury. Because of all of Poppy’s creative endeavors, we decided to hit her up for a One Sheet and as we expected Poppy went all out. She was able to find time in between all of her projects to whip this up in just one day. Thank you, Poppy, and get well soon!
