This is my second year in the Bordo Bello skateboard design show. Last year it was the 8-bit Star Wars Invaders board. Of course I was feeling the force again this year, so here we go.

Unlike last year, I’m gonna show you my abandoned design concepts for fun. Plus I only have two abandoned designs this year, not ten like last year.

We made the move to Raleigh in June, so this year I didn’t have the time to physically work with the board, so I chose the Boardpusher route. The nice thing is it freed me up to just think about the graphics. Time for pictures!

Now for the abandoned concepts. Maybe next time.

A Star Wars take on the classic Napoleon portrait. I think the horse needs to be replace with a Tauntaun to fully pull this one off, which is beyond my skills.

Well, there you have it. I’ll send pics of the actual board when I have them. If you’re around Denver, head to the Bordo Bello show on Sept 30th @ 6 p.m.
