The Skateroom is collaborating with legendary comic strip, Peanuts, to celebrate its 70thanniversary. The decks all feature characters from Charles Schulz’s iconic comic strip and for every deck sold a percentage will go to a charity organisations.
As well as The Skateroom designing their own decks, seven other artists will be reworking the Peanuts characters to their own style. André Saraiva x Mr. A, Nina Chanel Abney, AVAF, FriendsWithYou, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Rob Pruitt, and Kenny Scharf will all be contributing. With each artist releasing a single deck as well as a triptych.
The project is working at a 5:25 model. Either 5% of the total or 25% of each sale will be donated to the charities – the largest amount being the chosen percentage. The Skateroom has raised over $700,000 so far, giving to 34 socially engaged skate projects.
