The Ripper returns

An update of the iconic 80's "Ripper" skateboard graphic from Powell Peralta, revisited with some japanese newspaper & Hokusai waves thrown in. I couldn't decide which colorway to use so threw in both. Im painting this one up big.

That is so sick! Love it!! Nice Work.

Can't wait to see that on a old school deck!

So I am thinking of getting this deck made on www.zazzle.com but I wanted to put the Mad Daurma on the top grahic (but no way to add top graphis ...??) I am a huge ripper fan and collect only ripper decks. Got about 81 now many of them spoofs or a nod to this classic image. Noticed you just did 4 Mex decks and was curious if you did any of the ripper image yet?? ChrisOutofTown@gmail.com Love to hear from you or send you some ripper pics.

Hi Christopher, Good to hear! I havent done the ripper decks with a skate company but ive just joined zazzle artsprojekt and im going to put a bunch of stuff including ripper and daruma decks up there in the next few weeks, ill shoot you an email when i do.

Christopher said...

OK, Thanks. Yes, keep me posted and email me when you update in a few weeks. I will plan to order one in...Love your work! Chris

Hi, Chris here...just checking in with you. I was checking out the Zazzle store and trying to find the Mad Daruma guy... Hit me up by email when they are added. I think a skate company should do your Tokyo Ripper on the bottom and the mad darama on the top (grip) side as a pair.

Christopher said...

Loved the Zombie cuts mug btw... very cool! Mad darama would look good on that as well. Cheers! Chris

Zazzle is cool for mugs/shirts/etc. I noticed their deck prices are about $75. You may want to check out BoardPusher.com as they could do your tokyo ripper as well (about $49)... just a thought.. Thanks, Chris

OK, so i was wrong about skateboard prices on Zazzle...your Tokyo Ripper was only $59.95 ($75 I think was with shipping)...my bad. Also was thinking that since they don't print on the top side of any skateborad decks, I could simply order in a daruma guy as a sticker and add it to the top of the deck to complete the look. Also I noticed you designed up a shoe.... very cool. I hope to see the Tokyo Ripper image also on a mug as I would like to order one of them also. Cheers!

I wanted to post some cool ripper art and posted your tokyo ripper image here (hope that was ok).
