Let's talk custom decks. They're my favorite sort of paintings because it's honestly so cool for someone to have an idea, talk with them about it, and bring the design to *life*!
This time around, it was extra special because I got to work with one of my dear friends + old roommate, Dani, to create a custom deck for her brother's Christmas gift. Many text messages later, we chose this design, and I got to work! And you know what? It was one of my favorite decks yet!
I wanted this deck to rock a ton of school spirit, but also look modern + not too feminine. I'm a sucker for anything geometric, so this whole triangular pattern totally fit the bill.
The best part of this whole process was definitely seeing her brother's reaction in photos + getting super sweet text messages from him thanking me for his deck! Seeing people enjoy my art definitely the coolest part of what I do!
One skateboard, a lot of paint, and one giant Dutch Bros coffee fueled this painting. I filmed the entire process in a video, and yes, my giant coffee makes a feature. I couldn't resist!
I ended up loving this deck design so much, that its now listed in my shop, and is totally customizable for any team or school that you wanna represent!
I just got an order today for a University of Arizona deck with this design, so I'll be sharing that soon! Disclaimer: I apologize in advance to all the ASU fans out there who will see that deck. I am one myself, but I'll take one for the team and paint the deck ;)
Thank you for reading + I will see you in my next post!
Sending positive + creative vibes your way!
