Dogtown x Dinosaur jr with Neil Blender shape limited edition of 45 decks purple pickle colorway signed and numbered by J Mascis.. In creating collaborative projects, some take longer than others. Our good friend Otis also known as O, a veteran skate photographer, musician, and artist first conceived the concept during a visit to the Dogtown warehouse. It was a no-brainer to combine Dogtown Skateboards and Dinosaur Jr, who have both influenced generations of skateboarders in doing a collaborative deck project. Shortly thereafter, O was visiting his friend and fellow artist Kristi Sanders house and saw her oil painted Alien Hitchhiker version of the classic Where You Been album cover on a beat up skate deck and it blew his mind.
Otis ended his visit by taking the board with him so he could show it to J. Mascis who green lighted the graphic for the Dogtown x Dinosaur Jr. Visualized using one of Neil Blenders 80s shapes with a mellow vintage concave that he loved. After receiving Neils blessing on using his board shape, the project was presented to Jim Johnson, the master board builder at Watson Laminates.
Jim had built the original G&S Neil Blender decks at Watson Laminates where all the original templates are still available. What sets these boards apart is the handmade pickle finish paint that is 100% unique and the process and technique to paint these boards is so time consuming that this might be the last time this finish is ever used on a skateboard.
There will be two limited edition color ways of 45 signed, numbered, and silk screened Dogtown x Dinosaur Jr. Decks Made in the USA. The decks come in Green Pickle and Purple Pickle finishes and are signed by J.
