Project Description

Bordo Bello is a premier artist event curated by AIGA Colorado. Every year, they invite artists from all over to contribute uniquely customized skateboard decks. The decks are then auctioned online and all proceeds go to various charities.

I was invited to contribute a piece for the 2012 event. For my deck, I made a Ouija board with the artwork applied using a laser engraving.

Production Lesson(s)

When engraving a skateboard, start with an unfinished deck; This will prevent the varnish from catching fire during the printing process.”
