About the Oval Dragon Artwork:

Inspired by Lord of the Rings, George Powell asked artist VC Johnson to work on creating a new dragon graphic in 1980. He suggested designing it in a logo-like oval shape since its intended use was for stickers and t-shirts. The graphic was finalized during the Gold Cup contest series and both Caballero and McGill rocked the graphic on their boards at the Upland Finals. The Oval Dragon was used on a price point series of decks and assemblies and also became the official top graphic for all Powell-Peralta decks until it was replaced in 1987 by the Winged Ripper graphic.

Originally Released: 1980

Artwork by: Vernon Courtlandt Johnson

Hyped on this grip Review by CD
Rating
My first board was a 1986 white Bonite Tony Hawk. I remember making sure the grip didn't cover the red oval dragon logo. But nowadays I like my boards gripped from nose to tail. This sheet is sick in details. Love the look of a worn-out logo, Hawk and Fly stickers. I can remember using that rail hardware for Gorilla Ribs and not being able to get the installation to look symmetrical but close enough to get the job done. The few little flecks of missing grip in the lower left and middle right are a nice touch. It's a bit tricky to install if you want it to look right on your deck. So go slow, barely lay it down and check the underside with your fingers to see if it lined it up the way you want it. All in all, the grip is functional and has a sweet old school look!
