tr7 sk8 invited his audience on instagram to illustrate a skateboard deck for their shop.
artists were allowed to illustrate anything, but they could use a maximum of 5 colours for their artwork.
for this project, i participated with my illustration:
I posted the work in progress, made a short animation to show the details and used mockups to finalise the project.
DECK DESIGN FOR TR7 SK8
mockup - full decks with and without trucks and wheels
mockup - tail side
mockup - body
the number of colours allowed determined how intricate outline and colouring could be.
my design needed at least 2 more colours to work.
to overcome this obstacle, i took advantage of the natural colour of the wood and used a dotted filling method to obtain 'extra' colours.
