I’m very excited to announce the release of “The Taal Of The Taube” series of boards from Antihero—so excited that I kind of tinkled in my pants a little bit when the box arrived. I am honored to have been given the opportunity to create the artwork for the six boards in this collection. No dachshunds here, just pigeons.
A note on the title, “The Taal Of The Taube,” since a couple people have asked what it means:
Taal (Dutch) = language.
Taube (German) = pigeon.
Taub (German) = deaf.
“A Tale Of A Tub” = Jonathan Swift.
I have no idea what any of that means, but it sounded cool at the time. “The Taal Of The Taube” collection is now available at fine skate shops worldwide. Woo. —Dave Carnie
