ART_Custom Helix Pick Guard

IMG_1251 I get so excited whenever I get a commission for a new pick guard because they are so small that I can do them quickly, yet I still get to challenge myself with the placement of images and text on such an odd shape. This request was from a guitar-playing biologist, that wanted a gold guard with outline, his initials, and an (accurate) DNA helix. He gave me freedom with choosing the script for his initials, and I decided to use the Gibson guitar font because that's what model this guard will get screwed onto. I am excited to have done another guard and like the eye catching look of this one!

Also check out the video at the bottom of this post to watch the sketching and painting process of this piece!

"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!

DSC_1069 Little flashback for you...I wore this outfit to class on Thursday. When I'm going to be sitting in studio all day, comfort is my ultimate goal. My base is always some leggings and a band tee, and then I go from there.

OOTD_88 "All Your Heart"

DSC_0803 The weather is super warm this Sunday so I'm super happy but was stumped on what to wear. Instead of wearing shorts, I've been having fun pulling out all of my skirts and dresses now that I don't need to wear tights with them anymore. I've styled a lot of these pieces on the blog before but this was the first time styling them together. I think the red belt pulls this whole look together, which is a thrifted piece that hadn't gotten much love lately!

The track for today's outfit is just a song I've been liking from a new playlist I made entitled "All Your Heart" by Transit. Listen along here while you view.
