The Art of Skate is a one-day workshop about lettering and illustration on skate decks.
About the Workshop
If you’re a designer, visual artist, letterer or illustrator wanting to gain confidence, improve your drawing techniques and make work that stands out, this workshop is for YOU.
Everyone has a natural drawing style. The key is learning to master it and amplify the parts that make it unique.
I will teach you how to evolve your natural drawing style and apply your own custom artwork to a blank skateboard. You will leave with a handful of experimental sketches on paper and a customized skateboard deck of your very own. You will also receive a limited edition At of Skate screen print with artwork created by me, and a variety of paint markers, pens and pencils.
What You Will Learn:
• Sketching/refining process using pencil and ink
• Strategies for combining lettering and illustration
• Mapping out your composition on a blank skateboard deck
• Combining and using colors to enhance your art
• Calligraphy and Drawing Demos with paint markers
• Ending with a Freelancing Q&A Session where I will answer questions and cover topics such as pricing, murals, commissions and client work.
“This workshop was completely out of my comfort zone. I loved interacting with like-minded people the most, but also being able to see the different styles we all were able to translate onto our decks.”
