Paint Whatever the F You Want.
We’re always looking for ways to make our PB office more enjoyable, inspiring, and good spirited. We’re also always trying to embody our own mission to let people design whatever the F they want, and not just on skateboards. Especially when it comes to additions to the office, we want them to be saturated with our own inspirations and values, and NOT dry and corporate feeling- feelings that suck from past boring jobs that many of us know too well and now like to avoid like the plague.
One of the new projects we’ve started is transforming what was an ugly white wall with a great new hand painted mural. The mural depicts James Kelly doing a badass heel side slide on a downhill board. The picture is sick, and as soon as it’s done we’ll post all of the final photos and credits as soon as we get them. It’s already looking great and brings an awesome added energy to walking thru the front door every day. We’re so excited for it we couldn’t even wait until it’s done to blog about it :)
By a Skater, for Skaters
The mural is being painted by our #Whatever sponsored downhill skater and resident artist, Suigo Revilla. We told him to paint whatever the F he wanted, and this is what he chose. He has both chosen this photo (one of his favorites) and is painting the entire mural by hand.
Stay tuned for our upcoming events at our PB location to check it out in person. :)
Until then, Here’s a preview of this beautiful work in progress:
