ART_"Guster" Skateboard Deck

DSC_1230 I have another music inspired deck to share with you today! After working with a client on this board, she asked me to paint another board for her and of course I said yes. This time she wanted me to reinterpret the album cover of Lost and Gone Forever by Guster. She asked for me to just focus on the main boy and also paint him in stencil style similar to Banksy.

I also wanted to share more of my process with you today. I started by playing around with the album cover in Photoshop, and ended up with this.

For the rest of the painting process, you can watch this quick iPhone video I made featuring music from the album. Otherwise, there are more detail photos below!

OOTD 76_"Let Your Love Grow Tall"

DSC_0738 The best thing about Dr. Martens? They double as rain boots. Today was drizzly so I threw mine on over my cathedral leggings. I was excited to style these casually, in contrast to this outfit. Although it's typical to pair crazy pants with black pieces, I wanted to keep the outfit subdued. To add interest, I used layers with sheer and leather details. I topped off the look with my trusty BDG beanie, which is not only stylish, but hides my hair on a messy day when I'm late to class.

The track for today's outfit post is "Let Your Love Grow Tall" by Passion Pit. Listen along below while you view!

DSC_1432 First of all, I hope everyone had a merry Christmas! Today I decided to be festive for the holiday and pull out my red and green, but still do it in a chic way! I paired my red blazer with this very sparkly necklace with green rose detail. I wore them with basics, and the black jeggings were one of my Christmas gifts today--I love them! I finally threw my phone in this red clutch before I left. I think the red blazer and clutch are a lot together, but for the holidays I figured why not?

Today's outfit soundtrack? "Sleigh Ride" by fun. Listen here.
