Tokyo-based graphic designer GraphersRock today took to their Twitter account to share the first look at their skateboard designs in collaboration with anime series FLCL. The skateboards are set to come in several different colorways and are available in a limited-quantity exclusively at the FLCL exhibit taking place at the Shibuya GALLERY X BY PARCO from April 4 until April 15.

When it comes to the new FLCL series, both FLCL: Progressive and FLCL: Alternative are crafted with the intent of showcasing the next generation of creatives, perfectly embodying that is GraphersRock’s work. The showcase is going to call on a number of eye-catching creatives as well, with the likes of F*Kaori, Jenny Kaori, NC EMPIRE, Nukeme, Utomaru, and more sharing their take on the FLCL world. Entry into the exhibit is free, and we’ll be making our way over on opening day to check out just what everyone has put together.
If you’re interested in picking up one of GraphersRock’s skateboards, you’ll want to get in quick. Supplies are limited, and at a price point like 18,000 yen (~$180), I really don’t see them being there for long. If you’re thinking of making your way over to the exhibit, full details can be found below:
