Continuing on the theme of artist collaboration, the (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition Rick McCrank Deck is a thing of beauty. Long time friends, Portland artist Lori Damiano and Rick McCrank reunite to design a new deck graphic for Girl Skateboards and (RED) to benefit the Global Health Fund in an effort to end AIDS.
When I first saw this graphic revealed on McCrank's Instagram, I was taken back by how stunning the vibrant rug graphic is on that dark wood background. My very first thought was, this is going to be a board my wife lets me hang in the house.
I'm very excited to announce the release of my new @girlskateboards x @red colab board, designed by my fave @loridamiano !! $7 from each board goes directly to fighting AIDS. In 2002, more than 1500 babies were born with HIV every day. Today, that number is just over 400. Thats great progress, but it's not enough. With just two pills that cost as little as 30 cents a day, we can help prevent the transmission of HIV from pregnant moms to their babies, increasing the number of children born HIV-free. There's an end to AIDS. Its you. @red #endAIDS
