Skateboard Designs

Sorry for such a late post! I've been busy working on some TOP SECRET missions lately that I will share with you once they are ready to be released to the public.

Here is a project I started for myself. I am starting my new Skateboard Brand/Design company. (name pending)
My first line of boards are dedicated to my Kevin's little brother River.
Here is my first sketch:

"My Michelle"

This is my golden painting of the quarter, my pride and joy. If you have time to go check it out at Alexander Hall.
The layers of glazes aren't something that can really be shown through photographs.

Tis' an ill wind that blows no minds

"Tis' an ill wind that blows no minds"
This is the quote that inspired this piece, it was all about letting the medium "do its thing" as Jason puts it. As I applied the insulation foam it grew and transformed as it came from the can, also the paint that I poured on after ran down through the crevices, dripping at its will.

Lick my feet

Hey everyone,
I just recently finished my self-portrait for life painting. It was a life size, full figure. Oil, 4x4 feet.

This painting is obviously a self-portrait, but it is also about my experience in the past year. I am a freshman at SCAD, being barely 18 and coming here in the fall I felt like I was almost forced into "adulthood" and this is my "inner child," if you will, trying to come out. I am still taking my time to grow up, trying to enjoy and get the full experience of college at the same time. This painting expresses that feeling through the humor and whimsicality of it all, the paint application variation in rendering and expressive brush strokes.

Please enjoy.
