The Fisherman Skater

Just out of the oven!..Earthwing skates made this giant 41″ long-board model for my Husband Yoni Ettinger. It’s out in New York. and I was lucky enough to design it.

The design was primarily sketched in pencil and then digitally painted. The Idea was Yoni’s. He wanted it to appear as though he was catching the biggest board in the sea. It is a long-board after all, and longer than your average 32″ skateboard.

I wanted the Fisherman to have some mystery, but still resemble Yoni a little bit. I switched his very recognizable tattoo to the other arm. The whole board composition is  pointing at the fisherman. Not very humble, but who’s to say we need to be so humble all the time.

Skate like the Boy Scouts

Its Skate Camp time again. My husband Yoni is holding it around Pass over break, or Easter vacation. Kids are out of school and it’s a good time to go out side, get in shape and learn a few skate tricks. My inspiration is…surprize surprize Norman Rockwell. The scouts were a big part of the american naive 60’s. I admire his style and since im trying to go for a brand design with a common look – this works for me. I also learn alot about detail and composition posing.

Some steps.

…Some close ups.
