    Ok the mustard is not an original artwork, but it makes a great deck! I am disqualified.

  • Pingback: YASLY! – “Poison Arrow” — That Feathery Lushness You Crave!()

  • That Mustard deck would sell MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOONS !1!!!!

  • Foe

    Wickked site! Will submit a design tonight.

  • Ayo

    how big does the hi-res have to be exactly?

  • ideally to size of an actual skateboard or vectored so it can be scaled to any size. but if you got something good and it gets picked we can make it work. open for submissions until the 25th.

  • Ayo

    Hrm gonna have to remake mine(it’s raster :(), there are many skateboard sizes though, but I think 2400×8400 pixel might fit average deck

  • helly

    I would go with “print” size when working in Photoshop rather than pixel, and make sure your DPI is set up around 300 which is the most important.

  • Ayo as long as its close its fine. dont stress over that now just make something creative and send it over!

  • these are all so so so tight! nice work guys!

  • brian

    so many sick designs that are much better than the ones i submitted. =( oh well, good luck to everyone!

  • tadevuska

    woooh

  • carmentrino

    hellyeahh booom !
    indeed with keep. this will be tight

  • I might have been too late with my submissions or they were just ‘ehhh’ hahah…I just worked on them on the 25th, but there are a lot of really fresh designs that made the cut. I’ll give my favorite once the final 3 are up.

  • looks like they did make it in. I’m interested in seeing the ‘TOP 3’. Again, kudos to all the designs up. They look niiiiiiiiice!

  • Matterata

    I think there were a lot better designs on there than the ones that were chosen, next time, public should be allowed to vote for a top 3? then a winner? great comp tho! good luck all involved!

  • Looks like #1 takes the show.. They all look great though.

  • helly

    I’d like to know who did the cute bear ones.

  • the bear ones are mine :D

    have to agree with matterata though. lot of dope stuff here, choice seems a bit odd. then again, taste is subjective. plus i guess it’s just too complictaed to let everyone vote on every design. anyways, thanks for having this contest!

    ps. go #2!

  • helly

    The bear ones are my fav. Simplicity and whimsy rule for me.

  • candyblow

    the contest was very nice!
    congratulations to the winner!
    however, i see in other submissions much more originality and creativity.
    although there is a lot of work on #1, the illustration is very obsolete..
    but, “taste is subjective”

    cheers to every one

Los Angeles Warehouse Transformed into a 150,000 Square Foot Art Exhibition

British artist Simon Birch and a team of 20 collaborators have constructed an elaborate series of interconnected installations in a vacant warehouse on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles. Covering 3 acres of space with a mix of sculpture, video, paintings and performance pieces, the exhibition is a direct response to the current political climate. A celebration of creativity, diversity and unity, Birch explains: “Given the current fragile state of the world, we need unity more than ever… and we need action.”

While encouraging positivity, possibility and a safe space for people to come together, The 14th Factory is exactly that — a call to action that doesn’t shy away from provoking a response (or at least an Instagram photo). One installation is an exact replica of the iconic room from 2001: A Space Odyssey, while another is filled with 300 pitchforks hanging from the ceiling above the guests!

Check out more images from the project below or on display at 440 N. Ave 19 Los Angeles, California until May 31.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
