This skate is the last I did for Oxelo (Decathlon skate brand). I'm so glad I could work on this amazing and original shape...with a lot of freedom on the graphic design ! My inspiration was very linked to Sex Pistols old cover "Never mind the bollocks".
I researched a lot of old newspapers on internet to complete the background. To get the most realistic effect, I scanned crumpled paper. I made superpositions and shadows.
I drew over the set with violent colors worthy of the punk era. It hides faces or names and add an hardcore and spontaneous skateboard !
To finish, I wanted to have a black wood even on the edges, as the shape reminded me a tomb.
