The Skatepark Project, previously known as the Tony Hawk Foundation, recently released 500 signed and numbered prints of a Tony Hawk photo, shot by J. Grant Brittain and lovingly reworked by artist Paul Kobriger, who painstakingly recreates images by using ballpoint pens. With all proceeds going to the Project, this is a piece of collectible skate history that actually helps move the culture forward, providing access for kids everywhere for a safe space to skate. Each piece is 16” x 20”, signed by Hawk, Kobriger, and Brittain, and are $150 at The Skatepark Project’s site. Check out the story behind the photo, above.
In the past couple of years alone, Hawk has produced a Broadway play, performed on The Masked Singer, debuted an apparel line at Paris Fashion Week, cosplayed as Santa Claus, has opened a Mexican restaurant in Newport Beach with a former Playboy playmate… let’s just say that the list of projects goes on and on. Watch some of his videos over the years with The Berrics, including work from our 2019 ‘Tony Hawk Week’ event, below:
