Title: Skateboard artwork
Post by: Brianvdp on July 17, 2011, 10:09:55 AM
Hello everyone!!

Brianvdp here, I'm from the Netherlands and after this summer I'm graduating my meda/graphic design college.
I already did designs for t-shirts, dvds, cd's, lp's, ep's and logos for bands in the (Black) Metal, Grindcore, Punk, Crust, Hardcore, Gore, Noise scene.

But I wan't to try something new and something I think is challeging and excitings for me! I used to skate when I was younger, hanging with friends, riding arround, doing some tricks and stuff! I don't skate anymore and was never that good at it but I still love to see it. I love the appeal of decks and love to watch skateboard vids.

I'm currently looking to work with/for Skateboard companies, dealers, brands etc to do some graphics for Decks, Wheels, Shirts, hoodies, stickers etc!

Those who are interested or can help me by letting me know where to look much appreciated!! I did already try some companies but some don't reply at all.

People can check my art at:

Sometimes, when I shit my pants, I don't even tell people that I just shit my pants.  People start looking around with looks of disgust on their faces and start asking "Who just shit their pants?!?"

I'll leave you with this quote that a great man once said, "I am fucking art.  I fuck art".

You are in the wrong place for serious.

Read this (http://chromeballincident.blogspot.com/2010/08/chrome-ball-incident-12-don-pendleton.html) great interview with artist Don Pendleton to get some idea of what you would be getting into.  The work he did when he was in the industry was pretty amazing.

Who you know is pretty major in the skate world, but big companies are going to hire professionals, just like they would for any other aspect of their business, so plan on looking for and applying for open positions accordingly.  You may have to move to Californa.

There  are plenty of smaller companies out there, who you may be able to do freelance work for, just start googling and trying to contact them directly.
