New year, new THI3D THURSDAY Skateboard Design Contest brought to you by www.BoardPusher.com. This month is a "Cease and Desist" parody theme. Some of the most crucial skateboard graphics are designs that mocked the mainstream and parodied classic characters or logos like the Jeff Grosso Coca-Cola board. The industry would even make fun of itself like the early Blind spoofs of iconic Powell Peralta boards or the countless parodies of Jim Phillips' skateboard graphics. For this month's THI3D THURSDAY we're looking for you to make fun of your favorite (or least favorite) pop culture reference. Give a familiar character a funny or deadly twist, turn a popular emblem or slogan into something ironic, drop a celebrity into an embarrassing or compromising situation, or simply spoof a classic skateboard graphic. It is very important that we DON'T get a Cease and Desist letter so, be sure that the design is 100% your original artwork.
All entries must be received by Thursday, January16th. The winner will receive a skateboard with his or her winning graphic printed on it as well as $100. The design will then be featured in the BoardPusher THI3D THURSDAY shop alongside other winners with a limited run of 10 decks of each design available to the public. See past winners here www.BoardPusher.com/ThirdThursday. BoardPusher will not be using the graphics for branding purposes, so the rights to the winning artwork, as well as all entries not selected, will be retained by the original artist.
