ART_Tropical Pomeranian Skateboard Deck

DSC_1235jpg I have yet another skateboard for you today! This was commissioned board that I did for a friend to give to her boyfriend. It was a pretty unique request, blue tropical flowers with a running pomeranian and their anniversary in "thug" font.

I wanted to include this photo when just the background was finished, because I really liked how it turned out.

I also made another process video because I think it's a cool addition to the photos, so check it out or see more photos below!

ART_"My Morning Jacket" Skate Deck

My Morning Jacket I am back with another skateboard deck! Suprisingly, this is the first band tribute deck I have ever done. Gladly though, it won't be the last. I am looking forward to working with this customer again for a board of another of her favorite artists. I hadn't heard of My Morning Jacket and their logos before, but as I worked on this a lot of my friends told me that they liked the music--so that was cool!

I incorporated some of the band's art, the owl and bear, to create this vertically oriented board. The leaves were part of the bear art, but I decided to tie them in with the owl to give it a nice flow. The banner and freehand lettering was my favorite part to do, and has got me inspired to get better at lettering from memory. I think I'll work on that over spring break. By the way, I was working with this and this as reference images.

DIY_Studded Planner

another little DIY with what else? studs.

i wanted to do a project with studs on something other than clothing, and i thought my new planner for school would be rad because of the black leather. this literally took me 5 to 10 minutes to make while i ate lunch today.

check out my past tutorial here for the most secure way to attach studs to fabric or leather, and enjoy your new school style!

all you'll need is a planner (leather or fabric will get the best results), pliers, and studs. i opted for some smaller studs for this smaller scale project, and i pulled them off of a belt that I thrifted at the Goodwill for a dollar.

can't wait to use this baby for my first day back on Tuesday!
