This tiki mask is for a longboard deck design. It’s still work-in-progress, so I’ll update this post from time to time.
Recently I’ve finished this illustration for a longboard. The design is inspired by classic Hawaiian postcards & surf kitsch. Click the button down below for a little making-of.
Summer is blazing its trail, the first sausages have been punished by charcoal,
the lake is still fu**ing cold, plunged into water again at last (ok, except of showering) and skateboarding, of course.
Um, there was still something to tell…, yeah, right, after a long time there’ll be a fresh piece of rolling wood, looks not really summery, but in about four weeks at jolly weather I’m going to take it out to the park, and shredding it. Many thanks to Sascha from Rebel Rockers for making this design possible, although it’s not everyone’s taste.
I carried around this idea for a while, but it wasn’t ready to be conceived so far. With my love for zombie movies and punk rock it has been consequential to create a deck which combines both of these passions: the Rebel for Life deck
The skateboard enthusiast brings his (or her) declaration of love for Rock’n'Roll to the asphalt with this not-so-fresh-anymore chunk of meat.
This is the latest deck from the Rebel’s Garage: Apocalypse (alt. Felder vs. Lensen). It’s the first pro model for the Düsseldorf skateboarding company’s pro riders and crazy guys Lennart Efsing and Simon Felder.
The hippie dude Simon lives actually on a farm with his own skate bowl whereas Lensen is a natural born rocker who loves destruction, beer and heavy metal.
Here are some character studies for the Rebel Bräu Skateboard I have designed for Rebel Rockers.
