Just in time for Easter, The Last Supper in Luchador skateboard decks by illustrator and graphic designer Chris Parks which rock my world.
The Last Fiesta’ is my 12-skateboard deck shout-out to Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper’ with Jesus Christos and his 12 Luchador apostles getting down one last time. This piece was created for my solo exhibit Saints & Sinners, here at the Pale Horse Studio. Hand-made shadow box by Casey Paquet.

Got a LOVELY e-mail from Mathieu Cuvelier today about a project he recently did for Work Club which he thought I might be interested in blogging. It’s “totally fucking Mexico doll snatch” but I really like it, so here you go:
We’ve basically got a massive 22m long blackboard in the office. Every 6 months artists are invited to come decorate it.
This time we’ve asked Bart Simpson to come over on his skateboard to take over the office with every single line he ever wrote on the Springfield Elementary School blackboard!
Illustrator Mat Williams is behind the mask. It took him 2 days, 20 white markers, 288 lines, 7697 to realise the piece.
You can also zoom in and read every line Bart ever wrote here.
(via Nerdcore) A lot of artists are arsing around with street art and skateboarding at the moment but this is quite simply one of the best examples out there – fuck Selfridges I doubt there are few pre-xmas activities that beat painting an abandoned swimming pool for skateboarders in California.
And as the disguise gets smaller it appears he is actually quite hot too. So all good then! Read a full length article on this over at Environmental Graffiti.

These are what I feel are the best radical ‘skateboard’ designs out there . Completely crazy interpretations of the skateboard form. I am not just talking crazy designs (zzzzzzz with the exception of Jason Freeny’s anatomical design) but shape and texture. Covering them in nails or fur, or even making them out of marble might totally eradicate any means of using the board to skate, but as a work of art they totally rock my little World.
