The Lotus Alien Girl was designed and drawn by Lotus Burnquist who is a self-taught artist born and raised in California. This graphic is the second graphic that she has done for the Alpha Girl program.
Lotus grew up around the skate scene and was inspired by the perseverance and drive of those around her. She just so happens to be the daughter of two legendary skateboarders, Jen O’Brien and Bob Burnquist.
Lotus has a lot to say about her art, about life and about having had a front row seat to some of skateboarding's most awesome individuals and events at large. Here’s her thoughts on this piece of art and collaboration with H-Street…
“I want to start off by saying I’m extremely grateful for this amazing opportunity to be working with H-street on this board and to be able to showcase my art while supporting female skaters everywhere. I’ve seen how hard people work to make a name for themselves in this industry and the true blood, sweat, and tears it takes to master such an art. I’ve always been inspired by the mystical and magical aspects of life, in my art and in everything I do. I wanted to showcase that side of me through my designs while still making something awesome that women would be proud to skate on and feel badass while doing so..”
