ART_Skull Coffin Deck

IMG_1075 I finally have finished my baby! I call it that because I have put so much time and thought into this board. This is the first (and only) deck I have made by hand; I learned in a skate deck shaping class at my school last year, and this was the result! It then took me a while, but many sketches later I came up with a design. I talk about the design process a bit in the video below, that also gives you some good shots of the art and details. Please check it out, it's a more personal discussion about the art, which I am excited to continue doing in the future!

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.

ART_Collage Skateboard

This is the latest commissioned piece I did through my Etsy site for a client. This board was for her boyfriend's birthday, so it was a collage of all of his favorite things and quotes, and also their anniversary date. I enjoy doing pieces like this because it is a challenge to create a nice composition that balances all of the very different elements.
