Illustrative skateboard design produced as a competiton entry.
The Third Thursday Boardpusher competition runs every month and asks artists and designers to create a skateboard design reflecting a specified monthly theme. The monthly theme of the competition entered was ‘First Love’, a term which was completely open to the interpretation of the participant.
The concept behind my response to the competition was based on fictional stories and their illustrious characters that greatly inspired me as a young child. Focusing on the hookah pipe smoking caterpillar from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ the base illustration was created by hand and coloured in Adobe Photoshop.
