Custom Skate deck

Here's the attempt.

My first skate deck for a friend's birthday.
I was given free artistic merit to draw something "cool".

There is a tradition amongst this group of friends to put their dogs image on a skate deck proudly and lovingly.
I was commissioned to decorate this one w/ sharpie, which as a medium on a gloss board was a little unforgiving...I had flashbacks of being 18yrs old all over again w/ the subject matter and the sharpies limitations.
I would have loved to put in more time and the process kind of felt like tattooing a bit w/ transfers, the type, etc.

It was a good time and that chihuahua is something else.
Bit the hell out of my knee and still goes for me every time I see him!
