These should be on my wall by now.

A few months back I got a call from the guys at Plan B, wanting a mini-series for the team based on my “Ice & Snow” Viking. 4 boards, one each for Ryan Sheckler, PJ Ladd, Torey Pudwill and Paul Rodriguez. Check after the jump for the story & larger / more detailed images with the glow in the dark hit exposed.

The project was a no brainer, aside from Plan B being a super-team, they were my first “design job” oh-so-many years ago, I was thrilled to work with them again & really threw down for this series. The idea was to first dip them in black, then use 2 flourescent inks, a white flash & a glow in the dark hit for each board. Everything was done, ready to go & the plug was pulled. Can’t say / don’t really know what happened but unfortunately instead of them being on my (and your) wall, they’re up on here to ogle at. Hopefully another brand will pick the idea up but until then, enjoy.

PJ Ladd’s Boston theme

which shared the green with Torey Pudwill’s “Bear” theme

which shared the blue with Ryan Sheckler’s “Ocean / California” theme

which shared the purple with Paul Rodriguez’ Laker colored / Cobra / Bruce Lee theme which also ties back to PJ’s green / yellow board.

They may not have been produced but they’re still some work that I’m very proud of.

    These designs kickass,cant believe they didn’t give them the go ahead.As my boy is a PlanB fan he always go’s for the Sheckler signature deck and I know the series your on about as he had it for Christmas the Planb “toybox” mini series and although he loves the deck the toybox graphic’s are the worst ever designs.I read somewhere that some big hip-hop design guy done them,my advice is to stick to hip-hop my friend as every skater I’ve asked hates them.Your designs would have been a best seller I’m sure,many people I’ve asked just don’t get the toybox design and in the end didn’t buy it for that reason,Hopefully P-rod junior will come to his senses and release these designs as I know I’d buy one.
