Jamie BrowneVon: Sydney, Australia Age: 3
An artist from Sydney Australia, Jamie is fueled by his love for Rock’n'Roll and skateboarding and frequently partakes in both as well as a few cheeky beverages. Even from school his college days studying graphic arts, Jamie was always the dude in the back of the room filling his books with drawings of skulls, grotesque hands and other crazy stuff much to the dismay of his teachers but to the delight of his classmates. These days you’ll find Jamie working away in the dark depths of the Volcom Oz art department drawing till his hand seizes up and his eye balls melt in his skull.
