Luke Glanton: where did Ryan take inspiration from?

Morning there
Today for the "Did You Know That..." section a post on the visual aspect of Luke Glanton, Ryan's character in The Place Beyond The Pines

First let me say a big thank you to C. who is following Ryan before me and knows things of his past I still ignore. There are so many stuff about Ryan that we don't know and maybe we will never found them out. Or maybe we would discover them by luck, while reading an old article.

Anyway, let's start.

Do you know who is Atiba Jefferson? Atiba Jefferson is a good friend with Ryan and is a well known photograper in the skateboarding industry and he's also been shooting pictures and designing ads campaigns  for several big companies such as Adidas, Nike, Pepsi.

The picture here on the side as been taken by him. Gos, I've searched for the author of this image for months!!!!

Our Ryan is friend with some famous professional skaters like Andrew Reynolds and between 2009 and 2010 he attended some parties thrown by the  skateboarding brand Emerica promoting some skateboarding shoes  or played a DJ set with Ima Robot and  Andrew’s band The Goat in some clubs.

But you are asking now... where are you going?? What does this has to do with Ryan and Luke Glanton? Well, just wait and see.... This is the introduction GosAdd. Besides, some infos are always well accepted, right?

Another pro skater and great friend is Braydon Szafranski. On January 15, 2009 Ryan attended his Shoes Release Party at the Viper in Los Angeles (the pic here below has been taken during that evening).

Younger than Ryan (Braydon was born on October 1983) is a wild pro skater with a particular look...

Now... this is Luke Glanton...

And this is Braydon Szafranski...

Braydon has a small bat under his right eyes... Luke has a bleeding sword under the left one.

So? What do you think now? Do you think Ryan could have taken inspiration by his mate for the bleach hair and the tattoos?

As soon as I saw Braydon pic.... I  think there are many chances Ryan did it. Well, of course, we will never know unless our Ryan tell us.

Now, it's your turn. what do you think?

Stay Gos
