This term, I took a great class taught by Rob Clayton.  One of the projects was a personal term project, with which we could do anything we wanted.  I decided to make skateboards;  I was particularly interested in skateboards from the late 50's (the DIY homebuilt boards) and also the 60's (the early production models).  The trucks/wheels for the "Mongo" board were "chopped up" and sanded down roller skates from the 50's (or older).  I skated one of these before I started painting them, and it was super fun/loud/scary.  I was also looking at a lot of sign paintings, and got inspired by them.
