Pampling’s Unlucky Skater

Unlucky Skater by Ppmid imagines a sudden change of fortunes for the famous Lucky Cat symbol. In this scene, his golden tablet has been replaced by a bright yellow skateboard, and his waving arm is now confined to a cast. His skateboarding habit is also reflected in the pads on his knees and elbows, and in the helmet he wears. The detail is a big part of what makes this piece special- I love that the cast has been signed by well-wishers, and that like a real skater this cat has covered his board and helmet in rad decals. Some of the stickers even have luck-themed messages, like the four leaf clover or Good Luck text. It’s a fun spin on the cat symbol, and also an amusing way of looking at the undertaking of a risky hobby- there’s always a bit of luck involved, good or bad!
