We got together with legendary Tattoo Artist Flako to work on a rather unique and special art project for a remake Guest Art version of a very special H-Street Original graphic, the Matt Hensley King Size Eagle that was originally drawn by Francesco “Jekill” Albertini in the 80’s. The Kingsize Eagle was one of the most popular decks we made back in the day and a few years ago, Steve Caballero did a guest art version of this legendary deck that was a trend setter for many of the artist renditions of the classic H-Street graphics we’ve done and continue to do.
Flako is a West Coast script type lettering specialist and ink artist, with his talented hands in a number of art projects and collaborations. His take on West Coast style is known and revered worldwide. In his own words, he’s a “Badass Mothaf’er from South East San Diego Drop the Mic, Exit Stage Left”
Flako also worked with his bro and ink artist Dominick Taylor for this collaboration. Dominick specializes in charcoal art, along with traditional ink skills and most of the Eagle is just pure charcoal technique, along with Flako’s hand drawn type and logo, both on the bottom and top. This is Flako and Dominque’s West Coast take on Francesco’s classic art.
This standard Pop shape is made with a black fibreglass top that is quite stiff and snappy, more so than a standard wood deck.
