About The Graphic:
The bottom graphic is an image of the actual board, used and abused, that I skated in the Public Domain Video in 1988 w/ a Street Plant sticker added above my name.
-------------------------------
The shape of the board is the actual shape that I rode in 1988, recently roller traced and dialed in by @professorschmitt to match the original shape and dimensions of the 1988 model. The mold has been updated to be more modern and rideable.
-------------------------------
Note: The image you see on the bottom of the deck is the actual graphic.
This board is NOT used, it is just meant to look that way.

I had an amazing day and night hiking around the Portuguese Bend Reserve, the Abalone Cove Ecological Reserve and the Filiorum Reserve in Rancho Palos Verdes yesterday with Lucy @lucy_vallely
-------------------------------
We rambled for hours down through countless trails of wildflowers, and then out onto Palos Verdes Drive, before cutting over and down the Cliffside Trail to the Pacific Ocean at Sacred Cove.
-------------------------------
From there we headed back up to the bluff above, known as Inspiration Point, to take in the Ceremony Of The Sunset as it dropped below Portuguese Point.
-------------------------------
At dusk, we started our journey back up and through the Portuguese Bend Reserve. As darkness fell we became slightly disoriented and jogged too far to the west and found ourselves entering the Filiorum Reserve. It wouldn’t have been a big deal in daylight but in darkness everything becomes intensified. As we moved briskly along the Kelvin Canyon Trail I realized our mistake, and just before giving Lucy the bad news that we had to turn around, we found ourselves at the foot of Rattlesnake Trail. The trail was barricaded and closed due to trail damage, but I knew it went directly to where our car was parked and so under the circumstances we stepped around the barricade and took off up the trail using extreme caution.
-------------------------------
A few hours earlier, Lucy had been very wary of any trail with a climb in elevation or that hugged a cliffside, and because of that our scramble down and out of Sacred Cove was a bit tedious. But watching her navigate the precarious Rattlesnake Trail with the utmost certainty and confidence at night was an experience I’ll forever cherish. For as we climbed up the trail, I watched her grow and mature right in front of me. As we stepped out on to Crenshaw Blvd, I could plainly see that she now knew herself better, and standing there with her senses heightened and her adrenaline still pumping, she lit up the dark sky with an unforgettable beauty.

Greg Higgins @greghigginsart visited @streetplantbrnd Garageland last weekend for an Art Jam and he Hand Painted 10 Different Street Plant Boards. Watching Greg work, having close proximity to the process and getting to dialogue with him throughout the Session was a true Honor.
------------------------------
At Street Plant we Value the Art Of Skateboarding, and so we put the Artist First. We could never make logo boards, blanks or “team boards” because we believe that a Skateboard Deck is a Canvas for the Artist and that it should be adorned with Artistic Expression and Infused with Purposeful Energy. Where so much of the Art in Skateboarding has been suburbanized through the corporate filters, we are seeking a Deeper Connection with the Artists that we work with, to design Skateboard Graphics that Inspire Creativity and that Elevate the Senses.
-------------------------------
In that Spirit, every now and then, we host a Garageland Art Jam to let the Artists we work with cut loose on some Hand Painted designs. Very early on, Greg was the catalyst for these Sessions, and so it was great to host him here in Garageland once again.
-------------------------------
Thanks for all the Rad Energy and Art Greg!

Love, Positive Energy, Passion, Enthusiasm, Optimism, Imagination.

Professor Paul Schmitt @professorschmitt embodies The Very Best of Skateboarding and he Illuminates Everything around him with that Light. The Good Stuff is Contagious, it’s Infectious and it Opens the Doors for all kinds of Exciting and Meaningful Possibilities. Case in Point, yesterday @greghigginsart and I met up with Paul in his Workshop and it was a moment of Great Energy, the confluence of many years of interconnections all meeting at the same place and time for the very first time. Truly Good Vibrations!

In that moment, Paul remembered that he had stashed away some old blemished New Deal Mammoth Boards from 1991, with just a white pass of the graphic screen printed on the bottom. These Boards had been sitting in storage for 26 years and now, the Original Manufacturer, the Original Artist and the Original Skater of those Boards were all in the same room for the first time and and here were these unfinished Boards in our hands. It just clicked. Greg should Hand Draw the Mammoth Graphic over the white pass… Now all we needed were some paint pens. Fear not, Paul just happened to have some in his truck that Andy Howell @andyhowell43 had used previously on a project, and wouldn’t you know it, it was Andy Howell that had recruited Greg Higgins to do my Mammoth Graphic for New Deal in the first place.

While Paul and I worked on some new @streetplantbrnd shapes, Greg got busy drawing the Mammoth. And as many times as I’ve worked with Paul in his Workshop, the Energy in the room had never been this Powerful… It was like Chain Lighting spreading from person to person, moment to moment. Sparks flying everywhere.

When we were done, the 3 of us signed the Mammoth Board and Rob Wallace @robxwallace who was also there and a participant in all of this, snapped this photo, and then we all went on with our day… Completely Resonating with the Spirit of The Art Of Skateboarding!

Skate. Create. Enjoy!

Thank you Paul, Greg, Andy and Rob!

#StreetPlantBattalion Member Major Kelly Hillyer, United States Army, riding his @streetplantbrnd Tusker in Amman, Jordan. This board didn’t make it back to the States, it was gifted to a Jordanian boy by Major Kelly before returning home.

Kelly… We’ll be shipping you a new Tusker today!

Thanks for your support!
Much Love and Respect!
