garrison beau scott aka baykiddead has asked me and some of the world’s elite papertoy-, streetart- and artists all around to join him on a great cause and amazing kickstarter project! we were asked to design our own skateboard designs and an accompanying papertoy created by him called the BAYKID SPYRO.
the decks are available now as part of the kickstarter campaign, make sure to check out the link and be amazed at what the likes of 3eyedbear, ABZ, sal azad, marko zubak, dolly oblong, merrci have come up with for their decks..and that is just naming a few of my personal favorites.. ^^ and they all did a baykids design as well! this will be amazing to see!
if the campaign is successful, and i am sure about that, this will happen:
Hosted by Thee Eye Gallery, SHOVE IT! will open the night of June 7, 2013 at the Polk County Heritage Gallery in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Each deck and paper toy combination will be presented along with some of the original paintings used to create the skate deck art. There will also be a display featuring skate photography, the Baykiddead paper toy collection highlighting the contributing artists past work as well as a history of the paper toy.
make sure to check back on the campaign site, because that is not all by far!! there are still some more new deck designs coming (including one by me) and make sure to back up this awesome project!
