The Skull and Sword Artwork
The Rodriguez "Skull & Sword" deck was the first pro signature deck graphic produced by Powell-Peralta. The graphic was conceived by Ray and Illustrated by V.C. Johnson with art direction from George Powell in 1979.
Initially released in two different shapes, a 10" x 30" "Widetail" version, and a 10" x 28.5" "Snub Nose.” Originally manufactured in "Brite-Lite" Dayglo yellow, orange, purple and green, in years to follow it was made in various other colours, with a Powell-Peralta logo added.
In 1983 Ray's signature was removed and replaced with a Powell-Peralta script logo.
The graphic was also used for T-shirts and stickers.
Originally Released: 1979
Artwork by: Vernon Courtlandt Johnson
