Taiwan: MS Art Contest

August 3, 2009

In Taiwan, we just had a skate deck design contest w/ DC Shoes. I picked the 5 finalists and the grand prize winner, which were all amazing–I think they all should have been 1st place. Check out the winning skate decks and these images, courtesy of Slick Magazine…congrats to the winners…

    would you go to see the display while you are in Taiwan maybe on 12 or 13?
    It’s worth seeing those decks personally, and we are looking forward your coming!!
    AAR+HOOBASTANK+LP. greatest show ever!!
    although there’s typhoon called MORAKOT is coming to Taiwan..

    Can’t decide if I like the hand skate deck, or the colorful one next to it! lol

  12. Maaark on August 4, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Wow, they’re all so talented. Thanks for sharing the pics! I loved the one the guy with the black shirt is holding.

  13. Madlen on August 4, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    There are some very talented people around the world huh?I really like the one with the hand and the tree and the one with the screaming person and the other person that’s coming out of his mouth…they’re all pretty dope.I wish I could draw but I guess you’re just born with it:)

  14. Full_Metal_Ninja on August 4, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    Wow those look great. Although I have to say I like the 3rd place one the best.

  15. Kalini on August 4, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Congratulations to the winners!

  16. cuz on August 4, 2009 at 9:46 am

    Those look really cool, thanks for sharing. Is it just me or the site doesn’t work?

  17. Sintia on August 4, 2009 at 8:23 am

    I really llike the 1st place one. The 15 Excellent ones are really good too! Thanks for sharing pics from the contest. I wonder how you make time to judge a skate deck design contest while on tour? A man of multitasking I say. I hope you, LP, & your families are in great health & are doing good. Take care on tour.

  25. Felidae on August 4, 2009 at 1:39 am

    I bet the artist who draw the skate deck with the hand, the tree and the eye is TOOLfan… 😉 it’s my favourite deck.
    but they are all amazing!

  26. jeffryLP on August 4, 2009 at 1:29 am

    Wicked !! is the only thing that comes to mind, unbelievable skills, great job!

  27. liope on August 4, 2009 at 1:12 am

    Mike i have a big complaint!! Why you don’t bring those contests to Europe too?? America and Asia are always the lucky ones!! We want to take part to contest too!! Same thing happens with LPU!! Why you let Europe out of the game? 😦

  28. abbykulyde on August 4, 2009 at 12:41 am

    yep! the colors are so cute! luv it so much!

    should u be there to judge it?

  29. aussieChazz on August 3, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    I got very 80s feeling for that main skate deck !!

  30. soyuneik on August 3, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    That’s so cool, I wanna go to Taiwan. Any close up pics of the boards?
    Music is about to be real different. I saw/heard one of the new styles.
    ..and while I’m sure they didn’t, I did, just for a second, just a glimpse. ..and maybe it was my imagination but I could have sworn it was the future. Ugh, I have the worst migraine in my eye right now. I put up a raw of this beat I made and It made me think of.. oh wait I can’t be that straightforward. This headaches messin my style up.

  31. RockZoe on August 3, 2009 at 10:30 pm

  32. Gerardo on August 3, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    Aw! I love the deck that won 1st place the most. I just love the colors, and how there’s like, two people skateboarding at the end of the streaks. It’s really nice. 🙂
