P1100895

Lately, i found fun into shaping decks…here’s one of my latest ones, the “Death Marauder”. Mini-Coffin shape cut from an old Beaten 8.5 Deadfish, sand blasted, full black glossy dip with a handmade “ripper” graphic. The beast looks so fun you want to rip it and go fast as hell with it! (The custom denim in the picture was done by Wildbarz). Check out a few more picts after the jump >

CREEPN’CRAWL “SIDEWALK SURFER” CUSTOM SKATEBOARD

P1100879

An other custom mini-skate i did. This one is a gift to my girlfriend and it’s based on the classic Santa Cruz “Street Skate” from 1979. I tried to re-create the vintage flavor of the late 70’s boards and their smooth feeling. I cut it from an old Nozbone 7.7 deck, fully sand blasted and cleaned, wood was colorated and varnish. Graphic is a total Santa Cruz rip-off but it’s the idea. I added wheel-wells to it and set it up with indy 109 and 78A Hell’s Worm from HazeWheels. Turn out nice. Few more picts after the jump>

WEBRINGJUSTICE PIECE AT “LA DERNIERE VAGUE” EXHIBITION BY KOOLFUNC88

P1100439

Job Done! My 1st appearence in a contempory exhibition at La Derniere Vague during the year of culture and art in Marseille. That was super fun doing it, meeting cool people, seeing crazy art stuff, all fun, all good! As the exhibition is inspired by ride culture, my piece is based upon the classic World Industries (Never-Slick) Randy Colvin, art by Marc McKee for his “fuzzy” type of print. Graphic is inspired by 60’s blacklight painting with a touch of naive comic drawing. All black parts are made of cut-out velvet fabric, colours are spray-painted with fluorescent cans. 7,50 x 2,50 meters. I tried to keep the look of a real screen-printed deck. I never could do it without my good partner Soda and i have to x-tra thanks RobSqueegees&Co and PazeVmd for the handly help. Thx Guillaume & Richard for believing in my project! If you’re around Marseille this summer go check it in person it’s way more impressive.  ⚡KF88

MAKING OF MINI NYC SUBWAY-TRAIN (TOY PAINTING)

317014_4862773122320_1904665740_n

It’s been a long time since i have posted some diy handmade work making of, so here’s a commission-art i have done recently on a mini subway car toy. First if you ask me, i’m not quietly down with the idea, as making fake trains on plastic models is pretty whack when you don’t actually bomb trains for real. Anyway i took the thing like a game for model geek and have some fun making it, plus the guy who asked me for this is mad nice and i understand the purpose of his collection. (Mine is 2nd from the bottom right above the Saber’s one). As pictures speak louder than words, check out the step by step after the jump. ⚡KF88
