    New BoardPusher Skate Crew Graphic 

    tooley_fish_LD
    We’ve known Evan since he was a little tyke so we were excited to help him create his latest skateboard design.

    The graphic was created using markers and colored pencils before being scanned so that the colors and contrast could be enhanced in Photoshop. “The experience designing the board was a great one.” Evan told us when working with the BoardPusher.com art director.  “It went really smoothly from paper to deck and, with a few tweaks in Photoshop, we were really able to make the graphic pop off the white background.”

    Since Evan is goofy footed, he wanted the graphic running down the deck and flipped the BoardPusher logo opposite the fish for an added dynamic to the design. As for the significance of the fish, “The fish is something I’ve always sketched as a doodle and never really thought anything would come of it. Since my middle name is Fischer I thought it would be a decent play on words.”

    Evan also added “LD” to go under the trucks on his graphic. “The LD is something that I’ve always done. It stands for ‘Lock Down’. When I was competing a lot back in the day I would only go with tricks I had on lock down, hence the LD.” Evan added the LD using the font generator on the BoardPusher.com skateboard designer after uploading his finished graphic. You can check out that process in the quick video below.
     

     
    It really is simple for anyone to create his or her own skateboard graphic with just about any tools you may have. Give it a try on BoardPusher.com.

    BoardPusher Texas Detour Tour 

    elpaso_email_graphic4
     
    Last year, the BoardPusher crew designed a few skateboards, packed up some camping gear, and loaded a couple of trucks ready to head through the mountains of Colorado. Unfortunately, the Rocky Mountain weather wasn’t cooperating. As we scrambled to put together a new route, we set our sights on a much clearer and dryer path to El Paso, Texas. We had our good buddy and filmer Nathan Minatta of Skeptic Productions along for the ride and here’s what was captured.

    Lee Wilson – Denver Lunchbox Series 

    lee_header_email

    When we first met Lee Wilson, he was just a teenage skate runt hustling people for rides to any and all skateparks in Colorado. Now, Lee is one of the most recognized figures in the Denver skate scene. From charging hips for big 360 melons to hurling himself down big stair sets, it’s common for Lee to garner a crowd as soon as he sets his sights on his next trick. Tasked with the mighty feat of getting Lee to stop skating for any amount of time, we pulled him from one of his favorite spots, brought him over to our Art Director’s backyard studio, strapped Lee with some spray paint and art supplies, and let him loose on a few DIY canvases. We also chatted with Lee about his skateboarding style, the design concept, and contents of the Denver Lunchbox.

    Like most true street skateboarders in Denver, Lee spends a lot of time on East Colfax searching for stair sets and gaps.

    “That’s the fun for me. Also, flip tricks all day, like if I’m going new school I like doing nollie heel noselsides, get all tech like, but my favorite old school trick, I’d have to say stapler. I go tight trucks, though. Can’t be loose in the street.”

    When we asked Lee what his main motivation was he told us

    “Not get hurt. I just try my hardest not to get hurt. I feel like if I go fast then it gives me more confidence to land on the skateboard”

    Lee filled us in on the idea for the Denver Lunchbox series,

    “So the Denver Lunchbox means to me the three things that make a good skate day. To me, if I have all those things, it’s hard to not enjoy my day. Though, If I slammed a burger before skating I’d probably have the itis. H-Burger is the best in Denver, that place is bomb.”

    Lee has definitely taken advantage of Colorado’s progressive laws and let us know

    “Blue dream is the best strain I ever smoked. I sat on a ledge at D-park thinking I had HD for 3 hours.”

    lee_bud_board_painting_600
    When asked about going through the design process, Lee let us know,

    “I learned how to have an artistic side. It was really hard at first figuring out where to start when creating the graphics, but with Dave’s [BoardPusher’s Art Director] guidance, the idea became a lot easier. Definitely inspired to create more, but I need some more spray paint.”

    Oh yeah, the 40oz deck, can you skate hungover?

    “That’s usually how I do it. Also, that’s the one thing I’ll never be too drunk to do.”

    What?

    “Skate.”

    10352980_10101338968139017_7442924875873376021_n

    Not too long ago, BoardPusher.com set across the Southwest with team riders Levi Huffman, Mitch Schmidt, and Lee Wilson with Nathan Minatta of Skeptic Productions along for the ride to capture the road life. We hit up skateparks, street spots, and got in some ditch skating as well as other good times from Colorado Springs down to Albuquerque and back. Nathan put together 4 sick edits with music from DJ Largechild and you can check out the entire journey below.

    go_skate_day_winner_600

    On Go Skateboarding Day BoardPusher.com set up a couple of art walls made from broken skateboards at some parks in the greater Denver area. We asked skaters at the parks to contribute to the art wall, take a photo of it, and tag it with #BoardPusher on Instagram for their chance to win a free skateboard deck. Congratulations to Jonny T. Neely (@iamabrokenrobot) whose photo was picked as the winner. Here’s the deck he designed as well. Jonny is also an artist and you can see more of his work at http://www.jonnytneely.com.
