|Brenda, the birthday girl, with her present !|
Dimensions: 7'7 x 21 3/4 x 2 7/8
[completed in June 2016]
The story: my friend Tracy was looking for a special gift for her sister's birthday. Since she had herself a Mere-Made as a birthday gift (board#116) and one before that (board#016), she pulled the trigger and next thing I know I was doing a surfboard for her sister Brenda. Simple as 1, 2, 3 !
The shape: Brenda is a beginner and we decided for a classic funboard shape with plenty of volume on the nose so that she would enjoy riding the waves right away!
The artwork: when Brenda came to order her board and discuss artwork she wasn't very decided: teal and her dog's paw prints were in the talk. Then I showed her a piece of rice paper with some delicate black lace on it... She immediately loved the idea. Teal, lace and dog prints (which I made her make real paw prints from her dog and she said it was an awful mess (but the thanked me later :)). I also set her up with a custom logo designed by french plastic artist Sebastien Arcouet.
The glass was wonderfully executed by Dewi at Tiger Glass.
