I've been wanting to paint a skateboard deck for quite some time, so when I found this deck in well-used, but still solid condition, I decided to make something new from it.
The dragon theme was inspired by a friend, along with the quote, " ." Would you rather run from a dragon, or ride one? The choice is yours.
The pits and scratches left from the heavy use of the previous owner are still present, showing some of the original wear and tear. I chose to incorporate these elements as part of the character of the piece. It even still has the original grip tape along the top side of the skateboard.
Yes, you can ride it, if you feel so inclined. I don't recommend it, as it would seriously compromise the art, but it is doable.
