Custom Skateboard Painting for Junkie Threads!

By painting custom skateboards, I get a lot of different design ideas from clients. It is so fun to turn your vision into a painted deck!

Some of my favorite decks have come from working with apparel brands. They have an existing logo + style, but are looking to mix things up! We work together to create an awesome creation that is fun + represents their brand. 

I was so stoked to work with the guys behind local Arizona apparel brand, Junkie Threads! The faces behind the biz are Estevan + Ryan, and we had a great time throwing ideas back and forth about their deck design! 

The guys gave me a lot of artistic freedom, which I always appreciate! There only request was to incorporate a logo from one of their rad tee designs. 

As you guys know, I have some mad love for Arizona, so I wanted this thing to scream AZ pride. I presented them with a ton of options, and let them decide!

I was secretly hoping they would pick my Camelback Mountain design (option A) because I've been wanting to do a deck of the mountain forever. So I was stoked when they did! 

We actually ended up combining designs A + B, by doing a new color scheme of the Arizona flag. This was something I hadn't thought of, so I was really excited when the guys suggested this. 

And then, I hit the studio, and hand-painted this baby! It was such a fun one to do. 

True life: free-handing a logo is always kind of tricky. I have to be really focused + try not to breathe too hard (LOL) but it always ends up being my favorite part of the painting experience. I love getting the logo to look just right. 

And here's the finished deck! I love the photo below because it shows the dimension I added within the stripes (which was totally Estevan's idea and I love. it.) 

Thanks to Estevan + Ryan at Junkie Threads for the awesome deck idea! I'm stoked to hear that they love how it turned out. And I always love a chance to represent AZ!

Welcome to My New Blog + Shop!

Hi everyone, and welcome to the new website for my blog + business,! 

So, you may be wondering...huh? Where is

First of all, all of my past blog posts are still here! Phew!

Next, since starting my business, Studio Skate, it was only natural that I started blogging about my art in addition to my typical fashion posts. I started combining the skateboard art + my outfits into the photography for my style blog, and really loved the result. 

So, my blog really started to revolve around the art, which I was LOVING! It pushed me to realize that I needed just 1 site, where I could combine both of my passions. 

In addition, it just feels so right to share more of my creativity + art with you. I feel that something I created with my own two hands, is much more inspiring than showing  you what I wear every single day.

Of course, style will still be a huge part of my blog + photography. The sweet spot where the skateboard art and fashion come together gets me excited!

So, what does this mean for the future of my blog? Well, I will still be blogging at least a couple times per week. So I hope you'll keep following along! 

One new addition though, is my new email newsletter! This will have exclusive content + updates that I won't share on the blog. 

Sign up below!

I hope you'll take a look around the site +enjoy! Thank you for all of the support you've shown me as a blogger, and for taking an interest in my art! I can't wait to see Studio Skate grow. This feels good :)
