I’ve lived in the area around Wirksworth for over a decade and it truly is like no other place. Everyone in this community cares about each other and will come together to make something great happen. I feel like it’s always going to be a place I call home and will always be close to my heart. Wirksworth has so much to offer, and anyone else who has been to visit will agree. I also have my GCSE work up in Anthony Gell school.
For my skateboard design I started by looking at my other work and picking out what sort of things I’ve enjoyed drawing before. From that I decided on something to do with eyes and whales and tried a few different styles in pencil and chose which one I liked best. Then I transferred it to the scale it needed to be and gave it to Morgan to laser the design.
The reason why I like drawing eyes so much is because I find them so intricately beautiful. How everybody’s are different and they can show so much emotion. And I find whales so graceful, they have so much personality. The eye in this piece of work is almost like an all seeing entity over life, which the whale represents.
