Canadian Maple Longboard – 100+ hours – Materials used: Walnut Hollow Pyrography Pen, Water-soluble Coloured Pencils
Not only is this the very first longboard that I ever designed, but also the first art piece I kept for myself. Lions have always held a special place in my heart, mostly due to falling obsessively in love with the Lion King at a young age, but they felt like the right choice for my own personal set of wheels. I named it Balance and Direction because those were two things I’d been searching for and growing into. I was lucky enough to create this piece while living in Perth, Australia and it has served me well over the years- now bearing many scratches and nicks from some solid longboard cruises.
