I believe it’s a double kick too.
Or double tail.
You know, symmetrical.
Ahh cool. Just ordered one on a whym.
New 917 stuff is definitely the nicest yet. I thought it was stopping, too.
But this, with the butterflies and gradient…
…looks a lot like this.
Drake had a butterfly in a Real ad once, so he can probably claim it.
I think he said he’s just going to put out things when he feels like it and maybe have the odd guest board now and again, still keep it interesting to do without stressing himself about it. I mean companies like Skate Mental are still a thing, right (with riders), so why not?
I had a couple of those Drake Jones decks - all white with a monarch butterfly - back in 95. The memories come flooding back…stripy Polo shirts, ripstop cargos and Sal 23s…good times.
Oh totally. I’ve always bought the stuff, I like it.
Ah, is that WeSC board a remake? I only ever saw that ad, didn’t realise it was for a board.
Isn’t that a Westert Edition guest board? Magenta did a Drake guest board as well. Graphics were a Soy (?) illustration of Drake’s hand and butterfly from the original ad.
Here’s a low res, blurry photo of the OG Real one.
Would love to hear some background on how they took that photo
I’m pretty sure it must have involved some kind of root vegetable.
I’d love to see an Avi / Wight Trash collab along these lines.
Isn’t that just any Parra graphic but with ‘Tired’ on it?
Isn’t that just any Tired graphic? It’s his company after all.
He’s a great artist and I am told he’s a very nice guy too. I don’t buy any of his stuff it doesn’t quite push my buttons for some reason but I rate him.
These are bloody lovely.
