R.I.P. The Ripper

So many skaters and artists have been influenced by VCJ’s "The Ripper" image over the years, Transworld wanted to do something that would pay respect to VCJ and get skaters stoked. Transworld has invited a group of artists and asked them to interpret The Ripper in their own style. Curator Désirée Astorga says, "The book is the culmination of passion, hard work and effort from this exhibit. It features the artwork that was created for The Rip the Ripper Art Show featured at ASR." The books will be available starting on July 19, 2009 in a 8″ X 8″ soft cover for $40.00, and a 10″ X 10″ hard cover for $75.00 at In conjunction with the release of the Rip the Ripper Art Show Book, Powell Peralta is releasing a Limited Edition Powell Peralta Ripper Deck. Only 240 of these decks will be made. It features an unique shape (Gee Gaw) and is fresh to death, I already ordered mine, you better get on it SON...
