Oh joy! This skateboard company you may have heard of called “Real Skateboards” has a new set of boards and an entire experience ready to go set up around old classic video games. Real Gaming. They’ve even got their own interactive webpage set up around it. Play all the games! What we’ve got though is a close up look at all of the board graphics. Each of these is illustrated by the ultra-talented Alex Turan, graphic artist and designer.
Turan presents these utterly spectacular amalgamations of color, lines, and eyeballs, set up nice for perfect board cover. These are the kind of boards you stick up on your wall, that’s my word. Each of these seven boards corresponds to both a pro skateboarder and a game you can play on the internets. Most or all of these games is sort of a tribute to an older game, for instance “Border Jumper” is a direct parody of the game Frogger.
Cheque em all out, Dompierre Top Gear, Romndetta’s House of Death, Aultz Invaders, Hillbomber Dennis Busenitz, Motor Psycho Shaaf, Huf Ollie Challenge, The Official Border Jumper Ernie Torres. And if you can’t find them in stores now you probably can tomorrow or the next day or the next day.
AND as a special treat or bonus, also included below this project in the gallery below is an extended collection of works by Alex Turan, whose works are just splendid, full of color, full of brightness! Full of fantasy and no holding back! Full of it all!
