Skateboard Custom

November 22, 2007


Today I was working on the above illustration… just needed to do a skull up, and play with some new techniques i’ve been thinking about, and while doing it, i realized, i dropped the ball on getting over some art to the Foundation One Gallery. They are going to be holding a auction to sell off designer boards to help fund a skatepark in Georgia I believe.

Well, anyway, in a rush, I started with a couple illustrator ideas, then decided on a direction because my last one look like crap (the first one i started with, and eventually forgot about). I made a mad dash to Home Depot to pick up some things, came back, sprayed the board silver, and started cutting out pieces from the illustration. Still needs a few levels of clear coat, and a few extra things added, but so far, looks decent.

once done, I am going to redo the process on another board and see if i can get a better result, so I’ll have a extra one up for grabs.

    Yo Josh, Illustrations are definitely dope but I’m not feeling the gold color board I think if you used black instead it would stand out more but if you have an extra board up for grabs I would definitely take it. Dope work….

    Actually, the board is silver, just the lighting in my room was pretty bad. Once i drop in the new things i want on it, i’m going to clean it up with some touch ups and do a really thick clear coat. probably spray it down 4-6 times, depending on how it looks
