Medusa Skateboard by MicahJGunnell Medusa Skateboard by MicahJGunnell
This is a skate deck I painted for a gallery show in Boston called 'ComnGraf'. Its a one day event featuring over 40 comic and grafitti artists. Some of the best of comic artists in the industry will have art displayed, including Olivier Coipel, Keron Grant, Ed Mcguinnness, and Leinil Francis Yu. I'm honored to be a part of it, and humbled by the amount of talent involved! For those in the Boston area that are interested in attending its this Saturday September 27 from 7-11pm at Technical Skate Shop 230 Newbury St., Boston, MA.

As for the painting itself, its done in Oils, and its the first time I've ever painted with them. It was definitely a learning experience! I'm definitely going to use them again and I'm going to try to do better on the next try, but considering its my first shot at them, I'm not as embarrassed by my effort as I thought i'd be:) Hope you like!
