Ryan Troy Ford is a Chicago based illustrator and artist who used his skills to create a custom longboard birthday gift for his younger brother “(whose old board recently bit the dust)” and it’s this week’s BoardPusher.com Featured Deck. Head over to ryantroyford.com where you can see Ryan’s artwork “influenced by love, uncertainty, loneliness, and disassociated Americana” or follow him on Instagram @ryantroyford.

With various shapes to choose from, creating a custom skateboard at BoardPusher.com is a great gift for anyone who has a passion for skateboarding.
