Darkroom is the brainchild of Don Pendelton, American artist who created the majority of Alien Workshop skateboard graphics between the years of 1998 and 2005. Don Pendelton has worked with many skateboarding companies over the years and his artwork is very recognisable as his style creates very unique graphics. Darkroom is a new brand on the skate scene and was launched late in 2018 and with Darkroom, Don Pendelton has his own brand to be creative with and create more distinguishable skateboard decks, wheels, griptape and clothing. With Darkroom, Don Pendelton has more freedom to just play around, it has something for everybody, but it is still 100% Pendleton.
Previously, you might have seen his graphics on Alien Workshop, Element Skateboards or Habitat Skateboard Decks. Don has also created the artwork of Pearl Jam's tenth studio album, Lightning Bolt. We argue that when you buy a Darkroom skateboard deck, or the Triclops wheels, you are also buying a piece of art. Darkroom boards graphics stand out, they are bright and colourful with patterns and shapes that forms into creatures and characters that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
