...as well as my tattoo influences. It's a Z-Flex el Cortez deck. I wasn't crazy about the graphics and really wanted to do some of my own artwork on a board, anyways. I've always dug Wes' work...this is my spin on his stuff. I know it's not a BDS deck, but at least I'm runnin BDS mini dub cons! Anyways...I haven't even skated it...just got the deck a couple night s ago and painted it tonight. Hope this is alright to post here.

Before...





After...




"Ganko Oyaji"...loosely translated means stubborn/traditional old man.

Thanks everyone!

Wes...I used One Shot lettering enamels. I'm a sign painter and a pinstriper. Last year I made the switch to being a tattoo artist, but I still manage to paint some things every once in awhile.

Thanks again, Wes...it means alot coming from you. One Shot use to be AMAZING....until they took the lead out. These days it's a pale version of it's former self, although it still works better than damn near anything else when it comes to brushing paint on. I'm just spoiled because I know what the old stuff use to be like. One Shot is pretty cool, though, because it sticks to damn near anything. I use it on signs, pinstriping on bikes and cars, canvas, wood cutouts, windows, most purses, leather, etc. If you want to do outline oriented images, just get an American painter Series brush from Michael's Art supply...cost about $2 (that's probably $5, California ). For filling in bigger areas or doing "real" lettering, get lettering quills from your local sign supply. Not that you asked about any of this. HAHA.

Here's an example of the stuff I use to paint signs, pinstripe, do cut outs and screw up perfectly decent new decks.

Mineral spirits (for cleaning brushes and thinning the paint). Unwaxed "dixie" cups for mixing and holding the paint. One Shot Lettering Black (this is qt., but it comes in several sizes). My box-o-beatdown brushes. Examples of those brushes.



Left to Right....

Mack 000 series 10 striper
Am. Painter Series liner (#1?)
Mack "VIRUS" Liner
Mack Lettering Quills...#6, 18, 20
Mack Lettering "Flat"





This is just an example of SOME of the basics and there is more than one way to skin a cat. There's a number of ways/products to thin your paint...I generally use mineral spirits...I like to keep my life as simple as I can.

Anybody that is interested in learning to stripe should seek out a striper in their area and see if they'll let you watch them...it really helps to see things happen in front of you. Look for "panel jams"...this is where pinstripers get together and paint for fun or profit or charity. I'll be headed to Detroit Autorama where me and my fellow DEADBEATS (the REAL DEADBEATS, not the imposter California ones) will be participating in that panel jam to raise cash for a charity.

Anyways...hope this helped. Thanks for all the good words on the board...maybe I can go scuff it up on Monday or Tuesday!
