pink & blue

Sketched this one up with pen and highlighters.  It glows a bit more in real life.  After I started sketching this one I started to think of old Vision Gator decks of the 80's.  So that's a bit of the inspiration on this design.  My first proper deck was a used Gator, complete with neon tail guard, nose guard, and rails.  The board was way too big for me at the time, and too heavy too.  I could barely ollie on it.  I skated it for a long time though, and I still loved it.  I've always loved the graphics on those boards.  The board came with Hosoi Rockets wheels, and I still use those wheels today for skating bowls occasionally.
