Line Skis

Almost 2 years ago I was commissioned by super cool USA winter sports brand, Line Skis.

They emailed me a template of the ski shapes which I printed out life size, then got to work with my fineliners!

Delicate tumbles of imagined botanicals creep across the surface of the skis, creating an intricate band of crazy plant life.

The design team at Line Skis then worked their magic, applying the drawing to the skis and adding a splash of electric colour – something which I can take no credit for, but will definitely be exploring in the future!

Amazing commission, great client, fantastic art direction AND they sent me a pair of skis!

You can get a pair here and here.

Scroll down to see some snaps from the various stages of the inky process.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
