i made this design a few days after ross' passing just as a way to commemorate my good friend. it was suggested by several people that we should make some shirts out of it. needless to say, i was happy to do it and I hope everyone enjoys them.

all profits from the sales are going directly to the photography scholarship that is being set up in honor of ross.

the predatory bird deck.

photo: the predatory bird

the predatory bird deck is exquisite. here's why:-

a) 100% canadian maple has been lovingly stained in the spirit of your favourite rosewood dining table.

b) the ultra-limited, laser-cut, bird-in-hand inlay motif is unequivocally labyrinthine in its radicalness.

c) each board has been constructed, piece by tiny intricate piece, by the talented, nimble fingers of the wood crafter, in british columbia.

d) each deck bears it's unique number of the 50 that exist.

e) functions equally well as wall decoration, improvised speedboat rudder or skateboard deck.

and please watch this video below:

this video is of my friend andy. when i was 13 i got drunk and threw a pool ball as hard as i could straight at his face. he dodged it, laughed and introduced me to the r. crumb / neil blender style keep-on-truckin rock fakie. now he operates a small wood shop in vancouver where he has made a miniscule number of the first ever predatory bird products. i’m pretty sure this is the only time we will use this particular process. there are 50, some of which are completes with thunders deluxe made specially, thank you deluxe.

world record wallie contest!

wallie world cup 2012.

for multiple days outside the bright trade show in berlin, pontus alv and lennie burmeister could be seen making transitions for the most unique contest this year. the concept was simple wallie over a barrier and you become the champion of the world. the mc, lev tanju of palace skateboards, was complete comedy. everyone had three tries to get over the barrier and when those were used up and more attempts were needed, the kind hearted, lev facilitated with a nice cold one. for some the strength of german beer didn't help them get over but for others the combination of light feet and alcohol made the task easy to accomplish.

starring pontus alv, dennis busenitz, jason adams, dennis laas, guy with energy drink hat, curly haired kid, white shirt, the australian and many others who i couldn't give nicknames too.

filmed and edited by sean nguyen.

skateable sculptures by rich holland.

rich holland ©click on the image above to enlarge.
photo: rich holland

artist rich holland presented his skateable sculptures in finland and in doing so, his sculptures became the world’s first large scale skateable sculptural installation. holland’s work can serve as both works of art all by themselves, but should you get the itch to shred, they’re entirely skateable. if anything, that could add a bit more detail and character to the pieces.

one of the key artworks is skateable sculpture by rich holland. his work combines action with aesthetics, physical pleasure with visual pleasure. sculptures that can be skated on are placed in a challenging position between highbrow art and urban popular subculture. he focuses on the issue about the right to public space, fiercely debated in finland too, that is gradually being occupied by commercial and other private bodies. the exhibition and particularly the his work brings the outdoors indoors.

moco loco conducted an interview with the artist and it can be read here.
