Pictures from "Open Casket"

A couple pictures of the "Open Casket" skateboard show, curated by Corpse Corps Boards and hosted by Coat of Arms in NYC. I didn't attend, but I did find these pictures on flickr by some lucky person who did. Thank you Sir!

My board in this last pic, on the right.

Skate deck for "Open Casket" art show

acrylic on wood - 26 1/4" long and 9 7/8 at widest point

Just wanted to post a picture of the deck I painted for the "Open Casket" show coming up tomorrow in NYC. It's curated by Corpse Corps Boards and hosted by Coat of Arms. My board will be up for auction.

Check out the details of the show:

Santiago Uceda/Jon MacNair Sketchbook Collaboration - Part 6

With this spread I kept the idea of faces on the red page, and decided to do a cutout of the eyes. nose and mouth area that would then create a face of the opposite page.

I liked the idea of the face being a sort of surprise when you turn the page, having elements on the previous pages create the eyes, nose and teeth.

You can see how that works here in these pictures.

Santiago Uceda/Jon MacNair Sketchbook Collaboration - Part 5

I like the image of the number 8 and the flames-like shape, so I just brought that out more. The opposite page was just an experiment with contrasting image and text that really have no connection, to create new something with a new meaning.

Had some fun playing around with the mutation of this creature. I kept the basic colors and just adding some contrasting blues and environmental elements. Who doesn't like pink shoes?

This guy was pretty cool to begin with. Didn't want to change too much........

Pumpkin Police!

Yesterday I received a last minute spot illustration from Willamette Week, the alternative news weekly in Portland Oregon. The assignment was right up my alley, a jack-o-lantern. I had to finish it within a few hours, but I think it came out well given the time frame. A big thanks to the AD Ben!

Santiago Uceda/Jon MacNair Sketchbook Collaboration - Part 4

Despite having no arms, this guy is pretty happy. Maybe he's just content in his underwear and crown.

I liked the border Santiago made, so figured a blue cat mummy would be a good thing to fill it with. That and some pink eye orbs on the other page.

Had some fun fleshing out the basic face that Santiago provided. Gave him arms, pockets, and a nifty striped shirt :)
