Even though Todd Francis is well known for the art direction and flavor of Antihero Skateboards with its pigeon drawings, he collaborated with other brands in the past. He made a couple of Bam Margera board graphics in the early 2000s when he was working for Element. The Him I and other models became really famous, especially by non-skaters, thanks to Bam starring in Jackass and Viva La Bam shows and Tony Hawk video games. Element founder Johnny Schillereff, said in The Nine Club Episode 70 that the brand was selling 40,000 Bam decks every month at one point. This deck got its name from the finnish rock band Him. The white logo on the black part is the band logo, the heartagram. The font used for “Bam” is also inspired by the band written logo. The board graphic was reissued in 2019 with minor tweaks and sold out in no time.
