Who is L Vernet?

I couldn’t find any information on the illustrator L. Vernet when I wrote this post (in April of 2016…). Yes, you can find tons of examples of his artwork, mostly on postcards, but nobody seems to know/care who he/she was. The illustrations must have been done in the 60’s or 70’s. Verne briefly flirts with big-eyed children fad Margaret Keane made popular in the late 60’s. This is a rabbit riding a skateboard, as seen on a postcard for sale on the Luxembourg based auction site delcampe.net.

Forever Young

Grandpa has a long board, and a radical attitude. This is the March, 2017 issue of Prime Time, an Rhode Island publication described as a “contemporary magazine speaking to the mature market, caregivers & medical professionals.”

– Thanks to Poeser for the photo.

Mr Potato Head Coloring and Activity Book

Sure, Mr. Potao head may be on roller blades on the cover, but there are skateboarders on the inside. What’s the diff? I don’t know, Playskool, you tell me.

Fährt auf Skateboard

“Merry Christmas, Santa Claus travels on skateboard” is not nearly as funny as “Frohes Weihnachtsfest, Nikolaus fährt auf Skateboard” should be. This is a German postcard from 1987, as seen 8 months ago on the Luxembourg based auction site delcamp.net.

Skateboarding Mikey at Walmart

I was actually looking for some budget Vision completes (popsicles) that have the Gator graphic but just say “Vision.”  I have been told those have been seen in some Walmarts, but I couldn’t find any. Stay classy, Vision. The LED TV’s on display had a  continuous loop of snowboarding playing, interspersed with last minute gift ideas like this RC Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle on a skateboard.

Skateboard Stomp

Bart Simpson skateboard sightings are a dime a dozen. The best part about this ticket-spewing, foot-operated version of the classic electronic game Simon is the supporting Simpsons cast members on skateboards. Milhouse and Martin are flailing as can be expected, but check out Nelson’s confident, tuck-knee style. Current bid is only $100, but that 300lb shipping weight is a buzzkill.

– Thanks to Josh at Beach Party Attitude for the tip.

Just an old guy skateboarding

KOMO News has recurring feature called Eric’s Heroes, and this one is about Bellevue, Washington police officer Craig Hanauma. Craig plays the trombone, teaches jujitsu, and skateboards with the kids. It’s community outreach, but I’m pretty sure he not-so-secretly enjoys it. The pics above are stills from the KOMO video, except the bottom right, which is from Craig Hanaumi’s Instagram feed. About this appearances at skateparks, he says that besides his uniform, he’s just an old guy on skateboard.
