Rise Above Skateboard

I was recently asked to donate a skateboard for an exhibition put on by the Gold Coast Institute of Tafe. The exhibition was put on to raise money for the Mater Hospitals Art for Cancer Program. I was more than happy to donate a deck for such a great cause. So this is what I came up with. It is laser etched and spray painted. I had never done a laser etched board with this technique of adding colour before. It turned out great and had a great response on the night. They ended up raising over $4000 to go towards the charity. I also produced a limited run of natural coloured decks.
