Hats. As we go through life we all wear different hats to suit the needs of the moment, job, trick or relationship. For Mr. Jenkins, the front of his head has become partially worn due to the number of times he’s had to change hats over his career and life. His first hat tricks were in the magazine business doing a wide variety of work for BMX magazine Freestylin’, Homeboy, DIRT, Transworld Skate and Snow, Big Brother and his own company Bend Press (although it no longer produces on a regular basis). The number of hats in those jobs alone range all over the spectrum that can never be captured in a resume. During those years he honed the skills he learned at art school, in the workplace, gaining experience and learning the pacingof monthly and weekly deadlines. In 1989 his attention turned to doing bard graphics. He did the graphics for new Blind pro Jason Lee and continued to work freelance doing graphics for 101, World Industries, Fishlips, Blockhead, Blue and others until he was hired on as Girl’s main art man in 1992.
