Skateboard Deck: Oldsmobile

I'm proud to say I finished my last skateboard deck! I was a little worried about finishing this painting before I left for Denmark because I thought the lettering would be difficult, but luckily a spurt of confidence enabled me to finish just in time. This deck was requested by a client in Canada (it is so cool to be sending these out internationally) as a gift for his best man. It was an honor to create this special of a present. My reference image was sent to me by the client of the car, and we went from there!

Unfortunately this is my last painted skateboard deck for a while. It will be too difficult for me to find supplies and work on shipping costs from here, but perhaps this will give me a chance to work on some other art forms. Until then, you can check out my other skateboard decks at my art section or see what's currently offered in my Etsy shop!

Thanks so much for checking out and appreciating my work! x.

P.S. The wi-fi has been a lot trickier to deal with here in Denmark than I originally planned. I have also been super busy with orientation, but I imagine when I start working on campus next week when school starts, I will have a much easier time!

Skateboard Deck // Cartoon Mountain

Adventure Time Mountain I finally have some new custom art to share with you all! It has been a while. I was busy focusing on school and other projects like canvas and guitar pickguards, and haven't had a custom deck to work on since March. But now I have this super playful one to share with you, enjoy! P.S. This one's headed out to Australia...so excited to be sending these out internationally!!

This client wanted this deck as a gift for her boyfriend. She had a lot of various components she wanted to incorporate into the board, and it was important that I worked them into a cohesive composition. I approached this piece the same way I approached this past deck. Since one of the client's big ideas was to have the Nightmare Before Christmas Jack and the Adventure Time characters snowboarding, I decided to do a mountain scene and then do my best to tie in the other elements.

Another request was to have a sloth with a gangster chain reading "Sloth Life." I incorporated this humorous element into the scene by hanging him from a tree that was in the background.

Another little touch was the client's request for Fireball to be held by Jack Skellington while he snowboarded. I threw that in, but also didn't want it to be a lone element, so I had some buried in the snow at the base of the mountain as if it was waiting for Jack at the end of his run.

Along the way, it is somehow become a tradition that I always take one photo of a finished deck. At first it was an accident, but when I noticed it happening after the completion of a few decks, I decided to continue. It is a fun way to see where I was at the time each one was painted and what I was wearing at the time.

Thank you so much for checking out my work! If you are interested in a custom deck, check out my listing for one. You can also check out any of the deck designs in my Etsy shop, or any of my past art.

ART_90's Pop Art Canvas

IMG_1293 I keep small canvases around for moments when I get a bit bored, so that I can just pull them out and create something, but don't have to put too much thought or stress into it. I just started going with this one, and ended up drawing some 90's poppy fun art complete with trolls, yin yangs, and more. I really like the color scheme of this one, and am thinking about doing something like this to entire skateboard deck! yay? nay? Let me know!

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!
