Skate Warehouse is stoked as usual on new decks from Black Label featuring the graphic artwork of a skateboard legend, Neil Blender. Blender has been around since the beginning, gaining credit over the years as the inventor of the gay twist, Donner Party, and others. We’ve got a few photos of the guy and his work, plus the new Black Label Blender Decks at Skate Warehouse. Check out the epic video of Blender below.

Primarily a tattoo artist, Hendricks is also an artist at large, from original paintings and drawings to industrial design. Tattooing professionally since 1994, Hendricks got his start in his mid teens by practicing his skills on gang members he grew up with. He’s only grown since then, but you can see in his style that he was forever influenced by the culture of his community. Today Hendricks divides his time between skateboarding and surfing and making art.
Perhaps most uniquely, Hendricks is a maker of tattoo machines. These things are gnarly. Not only do they do their job, but they’re works of art. Each one is custom made with hand wound coils and loads of detail.
Below we’ve featured a few of Hendricks pieces and a video about the dude. Head over to SW to check out the RVCA collection and grab the tee.
Skate Warehouse is always excited about new Penny boards coming into the shop, for instance we’re all pretty darn stoked on the Penny 22” Skateboard Complete in Red/Black/White. That’s why we’re equally as excited about a new video that takes a look into the story behind Penny Skateboards. Founder Ben Mackay talks about going from riding one little plastic skateboard when he was five to making millions of them today.
Straight out of the artsy bunghole of the skateboarding industry comes some news on the art scene. Firstly, we found out Russ Pope will be putting on his first solo art show. The show, titled Tax Included, happens April, 5th, (this Thursday) at the AR4T Gallery in California. Skate Warehouse is a big fan of Pope’s, from his work with Scarecrow to Creature to Fallen Footwear to Vans. We even rock one of his original painting out in the shop (seen below). Check out some of the Pope goods we’re carrying at SW now. Click the pics for more info.
