This is the very first skate deck design that I have done. Having purchased a blank deck from the web, I was eager to customize it. First task was to paint it a smooth black, and put a few splashes of color. To stay true to the ongoing nature theme, I used a lot of photos of mushrooms, flowers, butterflies and ladybugs (most from flickr), with some hand drawn elements. Overall, I like how it has turned out and I will be working on the second one fairly soon. I have to admit, I’m not much of a skater myself, but hopefully some skater chicks would find this deck to their liking.
