* The Ripper was initially used for a Bones T-shirt design, but it became so popular that it was eventually used on a number of decks, T-shirts, catalogs, stickers, Bones Brigade Video introductions, Powell-Peralta shipping boxes, and even Powell-Peralta pant labels. Over the first 8-10 years, The Ripper became so synonymous with Bones, The Bones Brigade, and Powell-Peralta, that it was eventually used to parody Powell-Peralta by Blind and Shorty’s, during the marketing wars of the late 1980s. Since then, many artists have also found The Ripper’s basic gestalt of use in promoting many other brands and cultural icons. It is one of the most ripped-off graphics in our industry, and has even made its way out of the skateboard industry into our society at large and sometimes used as a symbol of the skate industry or youth culture.
