Sometimes a design is so outrageous — so exciting that it keeps coming back to haunt me in my dreams. That’s what happened with Art of the Board (www.artofheboard.com). I did not take a picture while Walking the Marketat ICFF — so I had to email them for pictures — after I could not get the booth out of my mine. Recycled used skateboards are fashioned into tiles used for decking, wall covering counters, kitchen sink back splashes – that is at the same time outrageous and visually exciting. So — here are two pictures to assault and excite your eyes. Try to visualize where they could be used to astonish the neighborhood and give back to the sport that is known for breaking bones and rules. If I had the cash, I would fund an installation in our local Town Hall — where the staid and aging town fathers outlawed skate boarding.
