For this project, I took a quote from my favorite movie, Lords of Dogtown, and created a hand-lettered piece that was then vectored and laser etched onto a handmade skateboard. The lettering itself is created in a more elegant and flourished style, to contrast the quote, "It’s Dirty. It’s Filthy. It’s Paradise." referring to the Venice Beach, California vibes in the early 1970’s.
The elegant lettering style and flourishings contrast the quote itself, but add humor to the piece.
I hand-carved this skateboard from mahogany for presentation purposes and grain, however, the shape is in reference to the style of boards that were being used in the 70’s.
