VCJ IS BACK WITH POWELL PERALTA

We did a mini “Get to Know” with Vernon Courtland Johnson, creator of some of the most popular and coveted graphics from Powell-Peralta and skateboarding in general. If you’re lost, then just look at the pictures. Classic doesn’t even describe them. Forged in our memories forever, we can now see these icons transcend the generations as we get ready for a new revolution of rippers. Stay tuned for updates from the Bones Brigade Chronicles.

-“Commercial art aims to inspire others. Personal art aims to inspire myself.”

What was your favorite graphic?
-“I have no favorites, I like inspired work.”

What’s it like seeing your images assent to the ranks of cultural icons?
-“Most icons will breed when dropped on the floor of investigation and truth. Drop mine and see.”

Why do you think people connected with your art like they did?
-“Mystic symbols, well crafted and marketed.”

What’s the best thing about working with Powell-Peralta?

“This is the most talented group of riders we have ever had,” said event founder Tim Hoover. “Anyone can take this year’s prize and I am so excited that we are having a live webcast because now anyone can follow the action during each stage right at their computer.”

SKATEPARK UPDATE : TEAM PAIN x LAFAYETTE PARK

Company: Team Pain
Park: Lafayette, Co.

Who was on the crew that built the skatepark?
The crew was a mix of Team Pain veterans with some  Colorado locals to round out the line up: James Hedrick, Troy Nichols, Bret Papini, Joe Fernandez, Lance Spiker, Chris Berry, Johny Fairplay, Chris Withrop, Sean Kelly, and Curt Baker.
Staff Photo: Chris Sessions

How did you decide on the design for the park?
Our design process usually starts with several meetings with the local skaters and city officials. In Lafayette the skaters wanted to go big, big vert bowl, big stairs. Parks and rec wanted the best. A skater built world class park. Together, TP and the skate community came up with a killer design.  Once on site the crew has almost total freedom to change and improve the park.The people on our concrete crew are all accomplished skaters, you don’t skate all the time you don’t work for us. It’s our job to make a good plan into a great park. The city of Lafayette understood this. They purchased a whole parking lot full of unique materials to add to the park. There was huge granite slabs, brick pavers, tons of large rocks,cut and raw, white marble with tyranny already cut into them and lots of pool coping. When we started grabbing the new curbs from the parking lot they asked if they could get us more. The city was totally behind us and it was fun and challenging to figure out what to do with all this stuff.

What do you like best about the skatepark?
Skating it. A whole lot of ideas that we’ve been working on for years came together in this park and it’s a blast.

Where is your next building project?
Arvada Co., The Arvada Army is expecting big things from us. We are recreating a Team Pain clasic, The Charleston Hanger, the indoor version with the extra bowl.

What is your duty now for the future?
Speaking for the concrete crew, I can only say we want to be the best. Most skatable designs and the highest craftmenship. We’re all friends with Dreamland and Grindline guys but we not playing, we want to be known as the best.
