I’m Board IV presented by Chad Landenberger has proven again to be a shredding success. With record submission levels and a packed out house this show is quite the force to be reckoned with. I love that we are seeing the development of more themed shows and learning that the demand is certainly there within the art community. This show gave me the chance to finally complete the second skateboard deck design of the two part Revenge series. The first completed last year for the I’m Board III show featured an illustration of a severed demon head and read “No Punishment Too Severe.” This year’s piece was a bit more subdued to juxtapose the prior violent rendition. It features an illustration of a mother tiger with her cub tightly in mouth and blood on her paw symbolizing a valiant battle to protect her young from harm. It reads “No Salvation Too Sincere.” You can view a final pic of the pieces here on my Behance page. Photo by Spencer Miller.
