Freedom Skaters | Deanne Janszen

Hey, my name is Deanne. This is my final project of the back of my skateboard. I decided to make a cloud because it symbolizes freedom and I believe that is essential in life. I was planning on painting a plane beside the cloud as a symbol for traveling because that is something I love and plan on doing it for the rest of my life.
Also does anyone have an idea for wheels that has a possibility of holding us up and moving (cheap)?

  1. Hi Deanne,
    Your skateboard has great symbolism and I love the freedom concept. For the plane idea maybe you could have the nose or half of the plane peeking out of the cloud for fear of freedom as well. But if you're going for the full effect the plane could be flying at the tip of the board. Overall your craftsmanship is super neat and the board looks awesome.

    1. Thank you Devin, I really appreciate your positivity. Do you think that there is anything that I could change with the skateboard? Also, do you have any suggestions for wheels?

  4. Hi Deanne, I'm Senna from XIS international school. I like the way you symbolized your art work. Your clean style of painting make me relax and, by putting your artwork in front of a tree, it looks more natural. I like it so much. And also I saw that you commented on me and Crystal's artwork which name was "The Sleeping Grass-Man" thanks for it. Anyway awesome work. :)

  5. Hi Deanne, this is a really cool idea and the idea of using the clouds to symbolise freedom is a very interesting idea. Maybe next time you could use different tones of blue for the sky which would create a more realistic effect. Is skateboarding something that you enjoy? Well done, this artwork is very good!

    1. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it :) Yea, I could change the tones of the sky but the project is now over but I do wish that I could've done that before. Also, skateboarding used to be something that I enjoyed but have recently stopped because the weather here in the UAE is extremely hot and is around 40 degrees celsius. I would love to see your artwork too.
