HYPEBEAST’s latest Pen & Paper sees the work of creative director, designer and illustrator Kevin Lyons. While in Paris for his snowboarding collection with DC Shoes, we caught up with the Brooklyn native to witness the mountainous transformation of his signature monster characters. Joining us for us a walk through the city of Paris along with a quick tag session, Lyons tells of his different approach to artwork and how he got into illustration. Inspired by the French Alps after his trip to DC’s Area 43 in Meribel-Mottaret, Lyons’ Pen & Paper depicts a group of mountains hanging around and chatting amongst each other. Since the characters used were part of a larger snowboarding collection, it was only fitting that the medium was switched from paper to the surface of a snowboard.
