Before Christmas I was approached to paint a custom skateboard.
I agreed and that board sat in my to-do pile for eons while the gentleman who sent it to me waited patiently.
I finally got my act together and started on the board. About 80% of the way though I decided the design was terrible. I started over.
The gentleman still waited patiently.
And today, after ages and ages, the board is FINALLY done! Here she be....
The words are "Pulvis et umbra sumus" which is Latin for "We are but dust and shadow."
I'm pretty pleased with it and would love to see it when it's truly complete: stained, sealed and decked out with wheels and stuff. I really hope that nice fella likes it too after his wait which was FAR too long (poor guy).
