I'll start this off with the Gonz..

I have always loved Gonz and Neil Blender's artwork. Coffee Break from 1986 is one of my all-time faves. I'm old...

Always liked some of the Chocolate skateboard series by Even Hecox (?), the chill colors and mellowness of the designs..

Back in 2001:

More recent series:

I always loved the old Powell Designs. The Ripper is a classic:

Anything by Pushead is pretty awesome too:

I've been trying to figure out who designed this one for months and still no luck.

My first deck. 1989. Run over when it escaped me while riding it to deliver newspapers. Art: Sean Cliver

That's awesome. My first real skateboard deck was this Cab:

And this photo of a McGill deck is just great:

My favorite deck I ever had was a mid-90s McGill deck that had a nose that was bigger than the tail.

I thought Vision was the greatest thing ever in the 80's

I'm putting this in here partially because it's rad but also because Scott was one of the best friends I have ever had and we always talked about making the "pro" move which he did. I didn't and there are plenty of times I wish I had gone with him.

Dan, I got to skate vert with Cab back in 2001, then had a chatted for a while afterwards at a bar. I'm sure he thought I was crazed-fanboy, I had so many questions. Such a chill guy, such a legend. Great decks!

I found this in a thrift store in Cleveland for $4. Can't go wrong with that price and that artwork.

^^ Love Ed Templeton's work, especially those little portrait statues. He's had a expo here a couple times.

My brother had this board (in blue) back in the 80ies, used to downhill the neighborhood on it when I was a little kid..

And this is what I wasted my time on as a teenager, not so interesing graphical wise, but it'll make some good bbq firewood some day...

First time I noticed Michael Sieben's work was on the Volcom Artists' section on their site. His was some of my favourite. I really liked Habitat's graphics.
