Client: A friend of mine asked me to design the graphics for skateboard that was going to be a birthday present. I'd never designed a skateboard before so I leapt at the chance

Design: The brief was pretty open; the only direction was that it had to be a polygon style animal. After looking at a few different alternatives I felt that a fox worked best, fitting both the shape of the board and giving it the right sense of movement. After I completed the initial illustration I was struck by how much it looked like a constellation and I reinforced this by adding a comet tail on the tail end of the board.
