• This workshop was completely out of my comfort zone. I loved interacting with like-minded people the most, but also being able to see the different styles we all were able to translate onto our decks.

The Art of Skate is a one-day workshop about lettering and illustration on skate decks.


About the Workshop

If you’re a designer, visual artist, letterer or illustrator wanting to gain confidence, improve your drawing techniques and make work that stands out, this workshop is for YOU.

Everyone has a natural drawing style. The key is learning to master it and amplify the parts that make it unique.

I will teach you how to evolve your natural drawing style and apply your own custom artwork to a blank skateboard. You will leave with a handful of experimental sketches on paper and a customized skateboard deck of your very own. You will also receive a limited edition At of Skate screen print with artwork created by me, and a variety of paint markers, pens and pencils.


What You Will Learn:

  • Sketching/refining process using pencil and ink

  • Strategies for combining lettering and illustration

  • Mapping out your composition on a blank skateboard deck

  • Combining and using colors to enhance your art

  • Calligraphy and Drawing Demos with paint markers

We will end with a freelancing Q&A Session where I will answer questions and cover topics like pricing, murals, commissions and client work.
