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.
