Longboard artwork for a friend…
- Oriental/surfer vibe…since it’s the closest he’ll get to shredding waves in the prairies.
- “Death Before Decaf” in banners…he runs a coffee shop.
- Had to go with a different wood-finish that caused the ink to bleed slightly :(
- Kept a simple black line artwork instead of color because I really like the woodgrain, and wanted to keep that as the focus of the board.
In the end he gave me free reign to challenge myself with something new. I’m not happy the ink bled, but what’s done is done. Myself and the customer are both happy with the design…and that’s what matters!
