Anyone that knows anything about end of the world knows that our imminent demise is fast approaching. That’s right, humans—on that fateful winter solstice day of December 21st, 2012 at precisely 11:12 UTC (personally, I’ve taken the day off) we will find out why the Mayan calendar ends. Some say the Mayans predicted the end of this epoch and the start of a new, “Yay new!” or “Boo, we are all going to die!” Interpret how you wish, but in the case of our Alien Workshop KTC series, we’ve braced ourselves for the latter.
Each board depicts a possible death-by-an-apocalypse scenario. Whether it’s death by alien invasion, nuclear fallout, or natural disaster, we have your skate graphics covered. Each board comes with a propaganda-like guide entitled 2012, So You’re an Apocalypse Survivor. There’s a limited batch of Alien Workshop branded apocalypse-proof steel cans that has all three board designs packed safely inside for all your bug out needs. We posted a few detail photos over on Facebook.
To get the word out, we have sent mysterious letters asking a chosen few to continue the mission: to ensure skateboarding post-apocalypse. Alien Workshop is even burying five canisters around the planet for the lucky living to find—hidden away from abduction beams, radiation, and known fault lines, of course. Check out the video we made below for a hint to the whereabouts of the first one.
Working on this project was a dream come true because: 1. I have apocalypse dreams all the time and 2. I grew up on skateboard culture. I would hang out every day after school at my local skate shop thinking, “Dude, how sick would it be to, like—do a board graphic!” And Alien Workshop! With their love for Dayton and conspiracy theories, we were in alignment like the planets on apocalypse-eve. So suffice it to say, I will love this project until the end of time…or longer.
