We Love Creativity & S8ology partnered up to present EIGHT PLY, an exhibition of over 40 artists all painting on skateboard decks. (If you remember, I participated in the Sk8ology event at ISM Gallery 2 years ago). The style of that board was very different than the direction I went with this one. Maybe it is just a phase, but I have really been into drawing ships and all things “nautical” lately. SHIPS. ANCHORS. ROPE. REPEAT. Yes, it’s overdone, but I don’t care. I love it.
While I still love to paint characters, the past few months I have dabbled in patterns and silhouetted images. It’s just a nice break from characters for the moment….although I am sure I will return to painting more of them soon.
The boards for Eight Ply were exhibited at ASR August 13-15th….and Thursday night was the after party / art exhibit at Syrah Wine Parlor. It was a great night. A HUGE thanks to Brooks who always manages to pull off the best events!
SAM LARSON – aka my husband. His boards were a hit.
