For my Digital Media class we had to design a skateboard with Adobe Illustrator (this was very early in the semester when I didn't have much experience with the program, as you can see my design is very primitive) and I asked my dad for an idea and of course he said his surfboard on a woody with a beach-like scene in the background. After the semester ended I painted his homemade longboard for Christmas. Not the same shape but close enough that the concept art worked.
Acrylic and polyurethane.
I had a lot of fun with this, so if there are any skateboarders out there that want to bedazzle their skateboards or longboards, let me know.

3 block woodcut. I carved 3 different blocks of
wood (all different) and inked them each up with a color (which I mixed my very self, in case you thought these came straight out of the can) and then printed (with a spoon for the yellow and black, a press for the pink) them onto the same piece of rice paper.
