Tiny Skateboarder on Steep Hill

I think I posted this a year or two ago, but just ran across it again. Made me smile all over again. Dude! I’m sure this little guy didn’t take off down the hill, but it’s the thought that counts. I can’t find out who took it. (Here are 170 places it’s appeared on the web, thanks to TinEye).

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. The painting is by Australian artist Ron Francis.

    He says:

    "This image was inspired by a childhood memory. The suburb was somewhere around the north side of Sydney harbour and I was the boy on the skateboard."
