This project took the longest of any skateboard graphics series I have ever created. From conception/pitch to production it took about 3 years. Completely by chance the boards hit stores exactly 30 years after the original poster was produced. The poster was shot by Kal Yee in 1988. I first saw this poster in shops on Yonge Street in Toronto when I was in my early teens. This was pre-internet and clearly it had a lasting effect on me ;). 27 years later I tracked down the photographer, 2 of the original models and had licensing agreements drafted (this is the part that took the longest). We were unable to track down the brunette so she was replaced by the enjoi panda. I shot the poster I acquired from eBay and photoshopped it into this three slick-deck series. I am really happy with how this series turned out and even have a standing burger invitation from the woman on the bottom if ever I'm in Aspen. Thank you to Heather, Michelle and especially Kal for being so patient during this process.
