slapstik skateboards mission statement

Slapstik Skateboards arose from a series of drawings called 101 Alternate Uses for the Human Body. Slapstik's graphics were originally composed of violent acts centered on floating pastel backgrounds. As time went on, short stories and ramblings related to the drawings began to fill the backgrounds leading to more words than pictures, ultimately ending the 30 deck run. The success of Slapstik suspended the company's scheduled end in 2006, and resulted in Slapstik of the Living Dead. SSLD's concept was to recreate the original Slapstik series with a George Romero living dead twist, which ran from 2006 to 2009. The Living Dead series was soon followed by the fairy tales and fables of Mother Goose and the Brothers Grimm which illustrated classic fables and tales in a modern setting. In 2010, Slapstik returned to the pastel back drops and absurd visuals started in 2001, with animals engaging in foolish human acts in a series simply called Animals. The mission of Slapstik Skateboards is very simple. We will make fun of you.

Are we there yet?!

With only 8 day before christmas, and no time to ship them, the Dark Ages slapstik series arrives December 17th, 2009. I hope these look as good as the drawings. This one is going to cost me a fortune, but it will be the last for a long time. Production of 120 skateboards will bankrupt you without even asking if you've got enough money to cover the tip. All I know is, if you said you'd get a board you better do it now or else I'll be eating ramen for next 10 years. Dinner's almost ready, so get your ass downstairs.
