PostSubject: CUSTOM DECK GRAPHICS!!!   Thu Sep 18, 2014 9:47 am

Yep, I am opening my time and skills up to the fingerboarding community. I am an artist of 24 years (Since day one) and fingerboarder of 14 years. I live in Las Vegas NV, and being that this is a tourist town it's hard to find work unless you know someone. I currently do artwork commissions as my main income and would like to supplement it a little more by offering custom graphics on your decks.

I can work in color, B&W, and every graphic would be completely made to specification. I can also do digital or traditional. So if you're looking to have a graphic made for your deck either as something to be printed on, stuck on, or drawn on I can do it. I can design on the computer and send you the files, I can send you the artwork itself so you can use it as you need it or I can be sent the deck and I'll put it on there by hand.

I also used to run Tribute Deck Shop as well so if you'd like me to refinish the deck along with the graphic I can do that as well. I love fingerboarding and love giving back to the community so to all who want graphics, here I am.

Pricing will depend upon graphic wanted and what method though the pricing will follow this guideline:

Graphic design - $10
Traditional Artwork - $15 (Minus shipping)
Hand Drawn w/o refinish - $20
Hand Drawn w/ refinish - $25

For reference on my artwork go to my portfolio

And you can contact me here on FBHQ or on my Email which is XXXFreeFlowXXX@gmail.com

NOTE: that if you are going to email me please put the subject as Custom Deck Graphic. I will not read your email if this isn't followed.

I can do the art, send the digital or traditional file to you and you can get it printed out on real wear material. I am just an artist, not a printer or anything else.

SiCar, I know who you are. I always remember because you were an asshole to me back on FFI. I kinda just remember that as a just in case lol. I'm weird.

But to answer your question, YES! I do have some examples let me show you the fruit of my labors.


This is a shot mid production. The board has no clear coat at all, I'm drawing directly on the wood.

This is one of my earlier black and white images done for Jared Kowalski

This was a kitten I did for Tribute Deck Shop

And this was done for Justin Rodriguez on one of his Homewoods

And this is just a graphic of myself in "Chibi" form for my own board. This shows that I can do color on the Hand drawn graphics as well.

Many people were assholes to you on ffi. Wasn't for no reason though, you pretty much invited every single asshole comment thrown your way.

I understand that I've grown over the years and I've had some stupid moments so yeah, probably. Either way lets stop that convo here cause this is about me offering my services. I've lived, I've learned and I'm past it.

Eric Best does this..
He refinishes decks, I'm sure he can do graphics..etc.
So you're better off doing it like as a small side job, or something.

I never said this is gonna pay the bills. I said this would supplement what I already get.

Supplement - add an extra element or amount to.

Yeh Blackfingers you seem like a nasty piece of work. Do you usually get so badly offended by things people say on the net?

calm down.

They look really nice. Try doing like a white dip with a graphic so its more vibrant. That would look good.

Basically what I really think, is that you need to make a small selection of recent examples.

I may be in the minority but I kinda think the drawings on the ones above are a bit lame. The 'young' looking girls and a cat...? And a half finished picture of a nurse/ girl?

I'm sure you've got some talent with this but it's like you're only putting in 30 percent effort.

You're asking people to pay a premium for a service that you're yet to prove you can really excel at.

I totally get what you mean. I will do some graphics on my old boards for you guys to prove myself. I have only 3 boards that are good enough to do. So if I could get some suggestions on possible things you guys might want, then I'll take the most voted ones and do them on my boards.

Update!, here is the first board I've done in a great deal of time. it's not perfect but that's because I was too anxious to do it properly and not have the colors run. I did a full refinish on my red logo Homewood graphic deck. I sanded off the old graphic, drew, inked, colored and then refinished the new one.

Before...


After...

I feel like using a realwear graphic, or at least a wood print would be much better than a drawing refinished into a board. It's a cool idea, but it's already been improved on into a better idea... (I.e wood prints, splits, and real wears.)

All the things you have just mentioned are what deck makers do. Splits and wood prints when making the deck and usually only deck makers want to invest in enough money to do real wears. Also when you do real wears you're paying for 50 or more sheets of the same graphic to cut down the cost so it really isn't that feasible to do single real wears. I am here for refinishing, graphic design or if you wanted both.

What I do and want to do are not meant to take place of those things you have mentioned. My service would be for the people that want to get their older decks refinished with a new graphic or if you want a design made up for a custom board for whatever company that you like.
