This is possibly the first time I’ve painted on wood, at least this way. It’s fun, but scary, cause I keep worrying I’ll paint somewhere on the wood I’m not supposed to. The weirdest part is I didn’t really realize what I’d painted til I was done.
Artist advice: if you ever pick up some garbage wood, or a skateboard, or anything that you’re like “I want to paint on that, but I don’t want to mess it up”, just fucking do something on it. You’ll always be able to find something else and have another chance. I had so many bits of cabinets and stuff that I wanted to draw on but I didn’t want to mess it up and now I regret not just sucking it up and using it as practice.

for fun I make mockups of skateboard decks and graphic tees, and my hope is that one day I'll be able to sell them
new sketches daily.
