New Jordan Hoffart Deck by VCJ for Powell-Peralta

1:35 PM PST on December 5, 2011

    When we interviewed Vernon Courtland Johnson earlier this year, he let you know that after a long hiatus, he was back to creating art for Powell. Gaze upon the new Jordan Hoffart pro model-- The Hoffart Pegasus is VCJ’s first commercial offering since his return to Powell-Peralta. From the company's site:

    “I’m stoked the way it panned out,” said Jordan reflecting on the experience, “It’s amazing. The whole process of sitting down and really getting to know VCJ was a blessing. The amount of energy, time and effort he put into making this graphic is unbelievable. I literally got a stack of 100+ sketches he did leading up to the finished drawing. I’m beyond stoked to have this opportunity given to me.” The levity of the first VCJ graphic since his return to skateboarding is heavy to Hoffart. “I just got it tattooed on my arm, so I get the significance of it. It’s a huge honor.”
