Illustrating an All Girls Skateboard Competition at a skatepark in Manchester presented itself as welcoming break from the other heavily art directed illustration I’ve been doing, and was fun to do. It finally gave me the chance to play around with some hand rendered type and to indulge in some 50’s/60’s surf style graphics. The hardest part was trying to come up something that wasn’t sexist, or even just plain girly. I dared myself to use pink, is that p.c. these days?
