Skateboard Deck // Cartoon Mountain

Adventure Time Mountain I finally have some new custom art to share with you all! It has been a while. I was busy focusing on school and other projects like canvas and guitar pickguards, and haven't had a custom deck to work on since March. But now I have this super playful one to share with you, enjoy! P.S. This one's headed out to Australia...so excited to be sending these out internationally!!

This client wanted this deck as a gift for her boyfriend. She had a lot of various components she wanted to incorporate into the board, and it was important that I worked them into a cohesive composition. I approached this piece the same way I approached this past deck. Since one of the client's big ideas was to have the Nightmare Before Christmas Jack and the Adventure Time characters snowboarding, I decided to do a mountain scene and then do my best to tie in the other elements.

Another request was to have a sloth with a gangster chain reading "Sloth Life." I incorporated this humorous element into the scene by hanging him from a tree that was in the background.

Another little touch was the client's request for Fireball to be held by Jack Skellington while he snowboarded. I threw that in, but also didn't want it to be a lone element, so I had some buried in the snow at the base of the mountain as if it was waiting for Jack at the end of his run.

Along the way, it is somehow become a tradition that I always take one photo of a finished deck. At first it was an accident, but when I noticed it happening after the completion of a few decks, I decided to continue. It is a fun way to see where I was at the time each one was painted and what I was wearing at the time.

Thank you so much for checking out my work! If you are interested in a custom deck, check out my listing for one. You can also check out any of the deck designs in my Etsy shop, or any of my past art.

Room Tour // California Edition

DSC_1125 Something I worked hard on all year was decorating my space. At school I lived in a house with 4 of my friends, and had my own room. If you know me, I have a need to make everything around me designed. Adding color and art to my room keeps me sane. I have since moved out of this room because I'll be abroad next year, but was sure to snap some photos throughout the year. I hope you enjoy my space and all of my DIY enhancements!

This shelf was a leftover display piece from Anthropologie. When my internship ended, I took it home and added a coat of red paint to make it pop on the white walls. It held my architecture books, special photos, DIY Gold Skull, and bone paintings, which are available here

This piece is another one of my personal paintings. Like it? Make it your own!

This DIY Pegboard Organizer added an industrial touch to the room, made out of scraps from my school's wood shop. Make your own!

This DIY Crate Table was one of the final changes I made to my room. It helped me get organized by creating a place for my camera equipment and a spot to drop my keys when I walked in the door. Not to mention, the perfect place to store my records and record player so I could jam out! Check out the tutorial!

My favorite part of my room was hanging up my skateboard art and continuously working on them throughout the year. This wall was ever-changing as I sold art and got new commissions. Pictured: Skull Coffin Deck, Coalition Ribcage Deck

A final small moment in my room, one of my favorite records and this DIY studded beanie. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqZWWw4a6Es&w=560&h=315]

Thank you so much for checking out my little space! Soon I will be sharing my room at home because I recently cleared some old things out and spruced it up! See you tomorrow, x.

"Walk This Way"

IMG_0950 This morning I was looking for a monochromatic look that would contrast my vintage brown belt. I pulled out my Aerosmith tee right away knowing that the classic vibe would go well with the eagle detail. After putting it on, I realized the city printed on the front of the shirt, and think it was no coincidence. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families in Boston right now.

To compliment the Aerosmith tee, I chose one of their best hits as today's outfit track. I've already listened to it twice and am currently rocking out as I type this. Listen along below while you view!

Although it was a recent purchase, I've decided to sell this vintage belt because it isn't 100% my style. I guess that's what I get for an impulse buy! If you like this unique piece, check it out for sale on my Etsy shop!

"Let Live"

IMG_0249 This was a pretty casual outfit for me, but I was stoked about this awesome tank I borrowed from Jake. The shirt has a punked-out version of Ariel, and is by the brand Aspire & Create, a line started by the lead singer of the band Of Mice & Men. I styled it with my favorite Vans pieces, that made for a perfect longboarding outfit.

I enjoyed playing around with my hand woodburned deck around sunset. This is the first deck that I ever customized, and I still love it.

The track for today's outfit is "Let Live" by Of Mice & Men. Check out their music by listening along below!
