Commissioned skateboard deck produced for the Dicky V Foundation’s auction in conjunction with the ESPN X Games.
Dimensions: 31.375″ x 7.75″ x 2″ (79.69cm x 19.69cm x 5.08cm)
Materials: Laminated plywood, ink.
‘Eshgeh toh va voureh toh khorshideh delam rah roshan meekonad’ is the phonetic translation of Persian, meaning “Your love & light ignite the sun in my heart”
The design is hand inked using a calligraphy pen, which creates a natural, deep stained ‘tattoo’ effect with the grains of the wood. For this particular board, I recomposed the deck and gave it a ‘split’ for a vivid, emotional draw.
