[personal profile] exchangediary posting in [community profile] oursecret


I'm going to be honest, I really like skateboarding. I know, some people think that skateboarding is best left to rebellious 14 year old boys who want to smash the state after study hall, but it's fun and liberating and a good way to get the 4 blocks from my house to the library without breaking a sweat. Plus, I can carry my skateboard under my arm and you just can't do that with a bike. Anyway, this isn't a post about skateboards, this is a post about Kris Chau. While looking for a new deck, I saw the above beauty and was blown away, so I just had to check out Kris' website for more work and, you guys, I was blown away. There are certain motifs that I love in illustration - rabbits, foxes, bikes, wistful looking girls - and Kris does them all and she does them so well.

So, here's a selection of my favorite images from Kris' site. This is a very image heavy post (over 20 images), so it's not very dial-up friendly. Sorry! Believe me, it was hard enough to limit myself to 25 or so pictures. Please check out Kris' site for more.























































If you're interested in getting one of Kris' decks, check out Foundation Skateboards.

I really loved Kris' work, so I made a few quick icons of some of my favorite pieces:
