SKATEBOARD ART

Recommended Posts

I searched the thread, but didn't find one about this. I know there probably was one, so don't jump down my throat for doing this. Basically, I felt there should be a thread in here for skateboard art. It was a huge influence on me, and i'm curious to see what other's were inspired by as well.

i'd like to see mostly art on skateboards themselves. wether it be mass produced board graphics, or just skateboards that were painted like the bottom two images. those jeremy fish ones, on the bottom, are actually carved out of skateboards. the top part is obviously the carved section. if i'm wrong about that, sorry. i couldn't find a better photo to represent this.

I didn't think of stickers, good call.

 

mike smith started Liberty skateboards around the same time Rocco started World Industries. it's been way too long for me to remember, but check the similarities in that last sticker, with this board:

Its not for everybody, but I always appreciated the cold and clinical sharp clean

design of the Alien Workshop decks. It's quality work from a graphic design

perspective, and I still have much love for the hand drawn kings like Andy Howell,

Mike Giant, etc.

i'm a huge fan of don pendleton's work.

 

i'm an even bigger fan of mike giant. all around style master, and from what i read, seems like a down to earth solid human being.

whats funny is that as much as i fucking love everything about the gonz, rarely am i feeling his art.except for the stuff like the examples below, that old vision and blind style, when he was really drawing cartoons, instead of that kid art style hes got now.

 

all the krooked stuff, 90% of it, i wouldnt give a fuck about, except for the fact that everything else he does is awesome, so i give the new art a hall pass.if anyone else in the world drew it, id be like, thats garbage.

i'll agree with you on that. some of his newer stuff is funny due to the material, but doesn't really stand up to the older shit.

 

when it comes to childish art:

any recommendations?

 

if you're painting completes, and don't want to fuck up --go with what you're doing. if you've got snapped decks, and don't care, i recommend hitting it with a can of glossy paint. a solid layer of that, and paint markers work fine.
