My latest project has been an ongoing work-in-progress. Over the past year, I have been taking small steps towards one larger goal. The project is called Born1985. It builds on the essence of surprise, mischief, humor and curiosity. I’ve been analyzing my connection to objects and how those connections stem from human nature. The object I am making feel like commercial products but they are designed in an artistic way that allude to raw and simple human feelings.
A friend asked me to contribute to a group of hand painted skateboard. I hadn’t painted in a long time so I thought it would be fun to come up with something. It took me a while to find time to complete this but it was a good feeling to pick up a brush again. Having freedom to put an idea together and execute it is a good feeling. I work on big projects on a regular basis for clients at work but I don’t always have the freedom to guide the purpose and content of what I am working on. This small painting briefly gave me that opportunity and it was fun to put together.
