A new venture!

Recently I have been practising my Illustrator skills to get them up to date in Adobe AI CC. Rather than produce artwork without a purpose, I decided to set myself a little side project to give me a purpose to create the artwork. The artwork will be used to make my first ever Skateboard! I thought it would be a fun project, allow me to create something cool that can be applied to something that people can have hours of fun riding. 

My inspiration for this tentacle design was ocean life and one creature in particular the Octopus.

Stay tuned for the next stage in the process when I get the board made! I will be doing this myself so hopefully with some care and patience the final board should look pretty cool!  

This is the design plus mock up of what it will hopefully look like once the project is complete!

Got the designs printed on glossy Vinyl ready to be applied to the board!!!
