Ekundayo Skate Decks

March 11, 2009


EKUNDAYO (whose artwork you saw in the album artwork inside Minutes To Midnight, with an extra piece in the limited edition version), has some great skate decks for sale. He’s also got a show at ADHOC art gallery in Brooklyn: “Duality” with Joshua Clay.

    SKATEBAORDING IS COOL, Mike, you should totally try it! I just hope that America will stop picking on skaterboarders! Maybe, Mike, you can open up your very own Skate Park! Oh! You should have a ‘lil talk with Mike Vallely about Skateboarding and Rock an Roll music! Woohoo, Mikes FTW

    I’m not a skate boarder, but those designs are cool.
    I especially like that last one.
    Have a good day.

    Those are sweet…I wish I had the money to buy at least one of them:(But I do have your “Women” deck which makes me really happy:D

    Amazing decks! I’d love to own the 2nd one! The guy is trully a genious, he put together the skate culture with the “new” art.
    Maybe because of MTM these paintings make me remind of LP songs which is really cool.
    Thanks for putting them up Mike 😉

    My cat is resting on my coat. Man, I don’t care if I’m covered in cat hair. I still love her. I don’t care, man. I just love my cat-kiiiiitten. She makes me so happy, Mike… I’m having her babysat in April. Today has been great. Yesterday was great. I hope no bad people can play checkers with a scarf or with that green celebrity shirt, because my pet is asleep in the basket hanging from my curtain rod and the police are no good. No Bennoda. Geez, no Bennoda. Maybe O T. Without the cholera. I see some person driving from South to North though, which is in a positive direction… smiles weakly

  7. Melinahites on March 12, 2009 at 5:17 pm

    random question: Mike, have you ever heard of Bennoda?????

    Congratulations Mike !!! You guys are nominated for the Kids Choice Awards for BEST MUSIC GROUP..!! Woo !! 😄 I already counted, i have voted 186 times….XDD (for Linkin Park of course) I know you guys won’t win unless EVERYONE contributes cause the fuckin jonas brothers are nominated and there are MILLIONS of little 5 year old girls that are too obsessed with them to see anything else in the world. I hope you guys win though !! Cool skateboards btw 😄 —Brooke.

    When I explored my “super fan edition” of MTM, EKUNDAYO’s artwork clearly stood out from the rest. Love his work. It’s nice to see his pieces featured at SURU or in your videos.

  11. todraw on March 12, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    Wow the Pic’s are very cool xD an just read that LP’s goin to play in switzerland _ i hope i can get tickets xD

  12. Maaark on March 12, 2009 at 2:33 pm

    Those skates are great, Mike! Seriously! I feel like skating now, even though I can’t… HA!

    Oh yea, I was in the Hoobastank webchat and I asked the guys who was the best HALO player, you or Doug Robb… Chris started laughing and said “Mike for sure”. But I bet I’m better than you! HA!

    @ YuN_RoCks: I’m pretty sure you can find great artists in your country! 🙂

  13. YuN_RoCks on March 12, 2009 at 11:34 am

    there are amazing! I’d kill to live in the U.S to see you guys and all these amazing artists ._.

  14. Hawaii_LP_fan on March 12, 2009 at 11:09 am

    Fascinating and detailed images of “obakes”. Great concept, an obake does fly/float. In this case, it skates! 🙂

  15. liope on March 12, 2009 at 10:37 am

    They are pretty cool!!! Actually since you posted about Ekundayo, he became one of my favorite artists!! 😉

  16. Dori on March 12, 2009 at 10:09 am

    Nice decks! Being physically disabled, I can’t skate, but, whatever. The first one is my favorite, but I LOVE the dark color on that last one!

    PS. Bought the new U2 album. Awesome!!

  17. rockermeg on March 12, 2009 at 9:52 am

    Woaah,I’d be too afraid to skate on them,in case I ruined the art :S
    Did you hear about Youtube videos in the UK??? Grrrr…..

  21. PippoPappo on March 12, 2009 at 8:37 am

    The second deck is the same picture that is in the video of Shadow of The day. I think that it’s great.
    Well ì, I’ve bought your Xander DC remixes and they are really awesome! I love them! Did you came in Italy for the Heineken Jammin’ Festival here in Mestre? 42094 guys and girls are waiting you!
    I know that the american people consider the Italy like a fuckin place full shit, but please…
    Here in Italy we consider american peoples like superheroes and you, you are our hero! You are the hero of all Mirano (watch on Google earth…) HANC

  22. cuz on March 12, 2009 at 8:24 am

    Cool. I like the colors and how he does backgrounds. And the idea of making “art decks”. Having more art in everyday life is very nice, isn’t it?

  24. Zuzaca on March 12, 2009 at 6:49 am

    Hi Mike, I want to ask you one thing. Maybe it will be more then one thing :). So I would want know something more about Art Center College of Design. I know that they have web side but in my opinion it’s better, when somebody, who attended this school, tell me something about it. And I know only two persons, who attended this school: you and Joe 🙂

    I’m from Slovakia, Europe, so have I chance to be approval to this school? When you have time, could you reply me please?

    Thanks…..Have you nice day

    Zuzaca 😉

    PS: This skate decks are great :)…..pity that I can’t skate..

  31. minuteforce on March 12, 2009 at 1:53 am

    The artwork on that second deck, I’m sure it’s featured as a painting in the “Shadow” video.

  32. rocksylvie on March 12, 2009 at 1:50 am

    I took the Minutes To Midnight album and I saw his artwork on the Bleed it out’s page. I don’t like this trolls or whatever they are but I like the colors, the way they’re combined. And Happy B-day Mr. Bravo! (It’s my birthday, too – that’s why I remembered!) I wish you a wonderful day! Bye!

  33. soyuneik on March 12, 2009 at 12:22 am

    Ya know, I’d like to have one of those fairy dudes. Like as a pet. They’d be flying all around me… But watch out, if you piss them off they’ll open their eyes and show their enormous razor-sharp teeth! I’d call them, hmm…Yami’s, Yammers, nah, Man-Eating Gimps! lol, I think its safe to say I have an overactive imagination.
    I mean I could have been like; That’s cool, that’s dope, I wish I could go …boring. I want the action figures.

  34. spraypaintNinkpens on March 12, 2009 at 12:02 am

    That’s pretty cool. I wish you did released all your art on skatedecks too.

  35. Aditya_the_warrior_within on March 11, 2009 at 10:24 pm

    cool i’m thinking of getting one .. but too bad the roads here ain’t favourable for skate boarding 😦

  36. KATHYxx on March 11, 2009 at 9:06 pm
