E.VIL Hippo Custom Grip Tape x Element Skateboards

Twinks bought me a new complete deck setup awhile back because I left my skateboard in one of the class rooms after filming on a Saturday. My boy told me he put it in the podium and I totally forgot about it (long day filming). I was for sure that my board was going to be gone. Either a janitor or student would scoop it up. However, I cruised to school early Monday and my board was still there. I got lucky. Now I have two skateboards.

Anyways, decided to custom the grip tape with the E.VIL Hippo.

Here are a few flicks. Enjoi.

First attempt failed (Tried to put grip tape on as one piece.)

Second attempt success (Decided to cut grip tape into sections.)

E.VIL Hippo Sticker Package 2010

Project Hippo Sticker Package

I hand drew 500 Hippo’s (125 pages, recycled school papers; 4 Hippo’s per page) using your basic King Size and Fine Point Sharpie. Why not just draw one and copy? I wanted each Hippo to look different, even though they may look the same. Plus, it was great practice for me. It took about a month and a half to finish the 500 Hippo’s. After drawing the 500 Hippo’s I got the 125 pages copied (four times each page) on to sticker paper to produce 2000 Hippo Stickers, which I had to hand cut. Yes, hand cut. I then used various Sharpie Accent Highlighter’s and colored 1000 Hippo’s (other 1000 left black/white). I also cut out the original 500 hand drawn stickers and used my Xyron 5” (create-a-sticker), which adds adhesive, to turn them into one of kind stickers (click here to see process).

Each package contained:
*25 Hippo stickers: 7 (black & white) and 3 each (blue/ green/ orange/ pink/ purple/ yellow)
*2 hand drawn Hippo stickers
*1 Hippo Bic lighter (color may vary) Never know when you might need a lighter.
*Wonka Laffy Taffy (flavor may vary) Jokes on every wrapper.

I sent out 40 packages. All with a different sketched E.VIL Hippo. No package was the same.

Fully funded by Me, Myself, and E.VIL.

Here are a few flicks of the process. Enjoi.

06.25.2010

To help celebrate the summer on Mission Bay, Firefly @ The Dana on Mission Bay hosted the 2010 Mission Bay Brew-Cation in the Mission Bay Ballroom @ The Dana Hotel. It was a social evening of culinary delight, highlighting five local chefs and five local breweries. Exploring the union of some of San Diego's finest beers, as each chef pair's two craft beers with locally sourced dishes at each station.

Event Sold Out.

Good eats. Good beer. Good company. Good times.

Good looking out Ian.
