Getting back on your feet after a crash seemed appropriate for a battered skate deck. This particular deck's message was inspired by the Bible book of Micah, chapter 7, verse 8.
This skate deck was used and discarded by some kid I'll never meet.
But the nicks and scrapes give the deck character and depth. Adding several layers of washes—opaque and transparent— gave the deck even more depth. Finally, I hand lettered the illustration in white Molotow ink, and sealed it with matte clear coats.
The deck comes ready to hang, with a custom mount built exclusively for hanging skate decks on walls. All you have to do is drive a nail.
This is a very limited edition, created over many hours and completely by hand—with love—here at Menges Design.
Price includes shipping to the continental United States. If buying locally in Central Ohio, please contact Menges Design about price and personal delivery of the deck.
Making things by hand represents one of my core beliefs: hand skills still matter, and I'd rather own (and sell) a few nice things, made well, than own rooms of processed Stuff that never gets seen or used. Thank you for taking the time to browse these creations. – Dylan
