Sk8 Box by Paul Krassner & Wally Wood – The Disneyland Memorial Orgy

Today we come across a fantastic new set of skateboard decks. Paul Krassner is a key figure of the counterculture of the 60’s. Furthermore he is the founder and chief editor of «the Realist», an underground newspaper, which first releases in 1967 in San Franscisco.

The same year, Paul Krassner published Mad artist Wally Wood’s parody as a centerspread for his satiri-cal magazine. Wally Wood (1927-1981) was one of the most influential comic book artists in the US, and he was also one of the Mad magazine founding cartoonists in 1952. The black and white poster in ‘the Realist’ magazine became very popular at the times.

“The Disneyland Memorial Orgy”, colored now by an ex Disney employee, will be available again on two limited edition skateboard decks in a nice wooden collectors box – the Sk8-box. The box is limited to 80 pieces globally, with all decks hand screen-printed in France.

Look out for an exclusive release of this great set soon at Boom-Art.
