On May 11th and 12th Dunkees artist Daniel Militonian participated in a live art battle at the CK Expo. It was a long two days against 2 other very talented artists Chris Dyer and Shie Moreno and at the end the people got to vote for the best creation. Daniel was chosen as the winner and will get to defend his title at the next CK Expo show in New Orleans. The meaning of Daniels art was that inside every Devil there is a lot of good and that good can spill out and convert the bad in to good again. The art was painted on a 5′ x 7′ canvas using paint markers and acrylic paint.

Back in September of 2010 Dunkees created a custom skateboard deck for Tyler the Creator and the whole Odd Future Golf Wang. The OFWGKTA skateboard deck features a goblin with the whole gang slithering out of the head. Take a look at the picture below:
For the past few months we have gotten lots of emails asking about this deck and wanting to buy it. One dedicated true OFWGKTA fan ( Angel O. ) went a step further and created a facebook fan page in hopes of raising awareness of the fact that this one AWESOME skateboard deck and it should be offered for sale. We need your help! If you are a OFWGKTA fan and support Dunkees, let your voice be heard. Like this page https://www.facebook.com/#!/IWANTMYWOLFGANGBOARD and show your support! As a thank you, Dunkees will hold a raffle giving away one of these decks for every 500 likes.

Most people who see a Dunkees skateboard deck for the first time always think the graphics on the skate deck are hand drawn right on the skateboard deck. A lot of times we get asked what program is used to create our graphics.
All Dunkees skateboard decks are drawn in Adove Illustrator using a Wacom tablet. Most of the time we sketch a drawing on paper first, then scan it in to the computer and use the Wacom tablet in Illustrator to create the final graphic on the skateboard deck. The reason for the common misconception of people thinking the graphics are hand draw right on the skateboard deck, is because of the format that illustrator uses. The format is called Vector. Rather than use small squares to create an image ( pixels ), vector format programs use math to calculate where everything is on the screen. What this does is allow the art to be scaled in to any size imaginable and still retain its sharp look. The negative aspect of the vector format is that it is very hard to fade colors and make things look 3D.
We chose the harder to use vector format, for the simple aspect that the end result will be a much better skateboard deck.
