Unless mine eyes deceive me, that is not a skateboard.

Here's my latest gem. In the early 2000's the crew at BLT/MRKT did a number of deck graphics for War Effort Skateboards. I can't positively identify which artist did this design BUT it sure looks like Shepard Fairey's work which is why I picked it up. The colors are bold and bright and the image fits right in with Worker, Goggles and the like when it comes to Shep's work. I love it. :)

Sorry for the shitty Iphone pics.

That's an excellent setup! I so want one of those Salman Agah decks. I've been looking forever and have only had one chance at one and missed out because I couldn't come up with the cash.

Thanks Hex! Took a lot of planning to get it to look right on the angle like that. i plan on building some actual frames for the decks, but for now this will do just fine!
Took me quite a while to find one, but when i finally did it was well worth it! Good luck in your search!!!

I hang two decks in the living room and rotate them in/out every few months. The rest of my deck collection hangs elsewhere in my house, but this gives me a chance to enjoy a couple of them in a different setting. Here are a couple of combos that have been hung the past few minutes months. Not the best pics, but you get the idea.
