hand painted skateboards
22.9.09 -
Before I set up a new board I allways like to paint it in someway. I recently got a few old xbox boards from mr Weller so when I had a moment I set about doing a quick something on them....But this time round the paint on the xbox boards was so slick that my stencils pulled the paint back off revealing the old graphics below....whiuch i think sort of works...except the wrestler lost his hands and chest detail...

shipping container homes amsterdam
- Back in Amsterdam for 4 nights. i think its one of my favourite cities... Lots going on and plenty to discover. Took a ferry out to a project called NDSM where an old ship building yard is slowly being transformed into a cultral complex with student housing like these old shipping containers and a massive warehouse full of artists studios featuring an amazing suspended skatepark complete with bar/cafe. Could this happen in London? Probably not!
