Artist
The thing about skateboarding is that it has its own aesthetic. What you choose to wear can be very reflective of your personality and interests. I picked up a skateboarding magazine, and you can really see that aesthetic in there. These magazines have cool fonts, exciting photos and good design. I wanted to mimic that in my piece.

The result is very loose, very automatic, almost impulsive. You can still see where I sketched and erased and the grain of the cardboard I worked on. Normally I tend to overwork things, and the images end up being too tight. This has an instinctive quality to it. It has lots of movement.

By the museum
Bodies dance across pavement
Skateboards crash and clang
