Yeah, I seriously hadn't touched the stuff since like....well...elementary school, but it's fun! The glaze i put on it, kind of killed some of the detail, so I'll have to experiment more.

Well it's been awhile since I've posted anything of value, and art-related for that matter. So let's get this ball rolling, shall we?

Having bought a new sketchbook, I thought i'd break it in....



and here's something a little different. I took an old Target-bought coconut mug, and drew on it with a paint pen.


And while we're on the topic of paint pens, here's a small thing I did on a scrap piece of cardboard.


Been trying to do something art-related atleast once a day, if not more....

Thanks BigT!

Here's another sketch i did today.


Don't know why I decided to add goat horns and a robe, but it looked like it went well with the motif.

just giving an update. The last drawing I posted, the "Pagan Ritual" piece, i decided to get printed on some skate decks. I got three printed, so I'll post pics once they get here.

Awesome. I would love to see a step by step of how you are printing on a skate deck. I imagine it is silk screen, but would like to see your process I find comparing artistic processes eternally fascinating. Your sketch thread has been a lot of fun so far too by the way!

Hey TigerTail!

Unfortunately I am not skilled enough at silkscreening to print on a skate deck. I've only printed on fabric, and honestly don't really have the cajones to print on skate decks right now. I sent my design into a professional company out of Cali, who specialize in custom printing. In fact, some recent decks I've had printed were from them and will be hanging in a gallery this weekend in NH.

As far as step by step goes, in order to get the design dark enough to make a good, printable design, all I had to do was scan it into my laptop, upload it to Photoshop, crop it a bit and up the contrast. I also went back and touched up some blank spots.

I see, well would you know what kind of silkscreen ink they use to do it? I am very curious what kind they would have to use because it would have to be extra durable under various conditions. Plastisol MIGHT work, but I am not sure. I would love to see photos of the decks when you get them done for the gallery. I bet they are going to look stellar.

From what I've read, Boardpusher does not actually silkscreen the designs. Most skateboards you see in large retailers are heat transfered and wrapped. Skateboards are made from layers of veneer, so another technique used is to print an image on a flat piece of veneer and then manufacturing the skateboard. So my guess is, once they receive my design through the computer, they can then transfer it over to a large printing machine and basically just transfer the image over onto the skateboard.
