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.

The Art of Darkness

nothing more to say

kiddy pool
Push skateshop in Ashville, North Carolina curated a show last month called The Art of Darkness which consisted of skateboards cut in half to make tombstones. Artist were then allowed to create a stone of their liking using the boards as a canvas for their resting place. Darkness opened on the 16th of October, and closed on November 3rd. Posted in this entry is the grave marker entitled " Nothing More to Say." This took about one week to complete, along with an additional drawing submitted or the show. For the lack of time I had to produce the works, I'm pleased with the results.
