About this creation
During the month of June 2009, I worked with legendary local Tattoo Artist:
RULER to curate a Skate Board Art Show. The blank skate decks were donated
by 9 Lives Skate Shop. More than 30 Artists created Skate Board Art using a
variety of methods. Including meeeee, I used LEGO:

Nadia looks at some of the details.

I started with a blank deck and I began using 3L TECHNIC Pins to attach a
layer of plates to the board via the bolt holes for the skate trucks.

In the design phase, I was going to glue the plates to the board, but that would have
been so permanent, then I found the measurements between the mounting points
lined up with plate distances. So I was able to do with out glue and just
used TECHNIC pins and plates.





The design is actually a BOOM-Box. It has an actual “tape cassette” in the
middle with faux buttons etc... (The wheels are supposed to be the speakers)

(Really bad cell phone pictures #1 and #2)




At first the trucks were a little skinny, then I switched to a fatter looking
truck set up by using engine/rocket parts. When building the board, I used parts that I didn’t mind giving away, so the design was admittedly a little limited.

The show was a success, I helped book Rock Bands and Hip-Hop acts, plus I installed all 38 Skate Boards.

Everyone did great!

Quoting Henry Shepard Wow! a skateboard in lego! incredible work you did here! i´ve surprised every time you post a new lego creation! original ideas you have my friend, keep on it! (it has a tape recorder in the middle?)
Hey guys thanks! When I uninstalled the show, I forgot to take mine off the wall first and the movement that transferred to the mounting cable by removing the other boards caused my TECHNIC pins to come loose and it smashed on the ground in an epic sounding crunch. I laughed while I scooped it in to a plastic bag while gasps from some nearby people were heard. ....and yes it has an old skool hard core band tape in the middle.

This is great! I used to be a skater when I was younger and this brings back memories! I love how you used a cassette player design which also recalls the earlier days of skateboarding. Awesome!
