Critical Hit: The Art of Skinner

He shares a name with a Marvel comics Ghost Rider villain, but Skinner isn't a bad guy. Rather, he's the creator of psychedelic nightmare art. Skinner, who once called Sacramento home, now lives in Oakland. Previously, the artist was mostly known for his mural of monsters and sharp-toothed beasts located in an alley off 16th Street, as well as various works depicted on Bay Area buildings. Now, he's got an online store that offers a collection of wallet-friendly pieces. Choose from hand-painted collectible action figures, jewelry, prints and more. Add flair to any dull wardrobe with a variety of buttons ($5 for a three-pack), or perhaps pick a Lurker pendant in bronze (also $50).
