Sims "Rising Sun" Skateboard Print
From my new print series: "Board To Death" - classic boards from the early-mid 80s!
When I was a teenager working my dream job at Wavedancer Surf Shop in the Annapolis Mall, I had firsthand exposure to the most awesome boards of all disciplines! I may not have been able to afford them all, but that time sparked an appreciation and a reverence for these functional works of art. The 80s was a rich time for radical board technology and graphic design so I saw it only fitting to pay tribute to them here at Steve Shook, Ink.
Who in their right mind didn't want a Sims Hosoi/Rising Sun skateboard back in the day? It looked bad-ass on the skate shop wall and even more bad-ass once it was stickered and thrashed, which was usually within the first month of ownership. This board was seen at every ramp session, drainage ditch bombing and downhill mission... and now it can be seen on your wall!
This print was done via Giclée, a high-end art processing method with a silk-screened ink texture and colors that POP! The paper is 100lb archival poster stock, so this baby is sturdy and will look good forever.
Print size is 8" x 10", which fits a 11" x 14" mat and frame (note: these are not included) - a standard size, available at Michael's, IKEA, A.C. Moore, etc. Shipped flat in a glassine envelope with a cardboard backing in a heavy stock mailing sleeve.
