Series Artist: Yanick Nolet
Trois-Rivières, QC, Canada
A native of Trois-Rivières (Quebec, Canada), YN spent his teenage years skating the streets of multiple city centers. In 1997, he combined his passion with work and co-founded Father Skateboard Company. After a brief stint in the Montreal area, he returned to his hometown in 2001 to open Central Skateboard Shop with his partner Micke Lemay. Then, in 2005, he moved back to Montreal to work as a graphic designer for a newspaper, which is his current day job. YN continues to do graphics for a wide variety of skateboarding companies (including Girl Skateboards, Father, Underworld, and now Gift Skateboards) and he still rips it up on the daily.
