Deckades: Online Auction

My hand-painted skateboard from the Deckades show is now up for grabs in an online auction which ends on the 26th of April. It's for a good cause too with all the money going to Unicef so don't be stingy!

There are also some good images of the old 1980's skateboards from the show over on Jo Waterhouse's blog.

Deckades: Hand-Painted Skateboard

Here are a few photo's of the original 1980's skateboard I painted for the Deckades exhibition...

One of the things I used to love about skateboards from the 80's were the smaller graphics on top of the board which you would have on show by cutting a gap in your grip tape.
With this idea in mind I painted the flames on the bottom of the skateboard so they wrap around onto the sides and then onto the top of the board, so the entire skateboard makes up a complete graphic...

This is the top of the board...

And this is the main graphic on the bottom of the board...

Big thanks to howies and Shiner for asking me to be part of the show!
