gOrk's BMX Art and Hander & Footer Originalswww.ArtPal.com/gorkgraphics
Few industries have a person so well known and respected that one name suffices in identifying them. In the world of BMX (bicycle motocross), it's "gOrk." As someone who has raced at a national level (UBR national number one sidehack three year running), rode and promoted his own freestyle team and shows, worked in the warehouse at CW Racing, and served as editor of iconic magazines such as BMX ACTION, the ABA's BMXer and USA BMX's PULL magazine, gOrk has left his mark on nearly every era of our sport. It was during his tenure with the ABA's official membership magazine - throughout the 90's, that he drew the Hander & Footer cartoon series; starring his original characters Juan Hander & Noah Footer.
In 1999, after 10 years with ABA, gOrk moved to the Pacific Northwest to join Seattle Bike Supply as the Director of Marketing for their flagship brand - Redline, as well as about a half-dozen other proprietary brands (including Torker bikes and Pryme safety gear).
In 2010, he was inducted in to the National BMX Hall of Fame - in the "Industry" category.
The following year, gOrk returned to ABA - just in time for them to scoop up the NBL and re-brand the sanctioning body as USA BMX; where he still works today as Chief of Communications.
After holding on to the original artwork from the 90's - gOrk has decided "Why not spread the art?" After all, it doesn't do anybody any good just being stored in the garage - does it?
Now - YOU, can own a piece of BMX history from the 90's - and have either an original or PMT -scan of the actual artwork, or a high-quality print, that appeared in BMXer magazine.
