GREG MIKE x REAL Skateboards 2012 Spring Capsule Collection
Spend any time around the city of Atlanta and you’re likely to run across one of GREG MIKE’s Loud Mouth stickers plastered across a street sign or wall. No stranger to minting his own appropriation of custom decks for a range of the city’s artists, DJs and skaters alike, he has developed quite a following for himself over the years through his uniquely characterized aesthetics that are seen emblazoned across walls and canvases alike. The Atlanta native recently joined REAL Skateboards to curate a Spring 2012 custom capsule collection alongside the storied brand. For the collaborative, GREG MIKE lent his hand to a taut range of five custom-designed Ramondetta and Brock signature REAL decks. A testament to the duo’s well-intentioned motives, GREG MIKE designed a one of a kind three-foot-tall “Mad Can” Peter Ramondetta version that was hand-painted, and will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit the JohnnyKicksCancer Foundation. Aligning with the skate deck range, REAL unleashes a short film highlighting the progression of the Mad Can creation while the decks will see a release through select stockists.
