Newest Project

I’ll start off by saying that spring break did me some good. I got some sun (Thank you California), I relaxed, explored the never-ending Los Angeles and even got some art done! I’ve actually started a new series. My boyfriend managed to get his hands on 5 plain skateboard decks that have absolutely no finish on them **I almost cried when he told me**  and have begun a new series. He actually helped with the new idea as well. The idea focuses on Evolution and will be shown across all boards. The sequence is still not set in stone, but hey, I got it started. So here is what I’ve been working on:

This first picture shows the sketch ready to transfer and in position of where it’ll be placed:

This is a shot of the finished outline and the major details in progress:

And lastly the finished burning:

I’m really happy with how it turned out and have already started the second board. I’ll try to put up pictures soon. 

 

**One question I have is, should iI leave the board as is and call it complete, or add a stain to the wood? The stain would most likely be a slightly dark brown/red. Opinions and insights would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks guys!

    • Thank you 🙂 and thank you for your response! I totally agree with you. I normally just leave the wood looking natural. It was suggested to me to do a stain so I wanted to consider it and maybe I will consider it for future pieces, but I agree. I like the natural look for this one especially with the “evolution” concept behind it. You’ve restored confidence in my initial decision! Thank you 🙂
