FAILURE!!!





Break out the party poppers and strike up the band! We have a failure! Ever since I did my LED drummer last fall I have wanted to do an LED skater. Tonight I set out to accomplish the goal. I wanted a full fledge LED art skater drawn in mid flight over the deck of my beloved mini ramp. Well... I failed... yes the results are not even close to my expectations. I decided to post anyway. I am actually very happy. I believe failure is vitally important ingredient in progress. I believe we are to celebrate our failure and realize that it is the foundation for success. So here are my best failed pics from my art shoot tonight. Failed yet fun... and I learned a lot about movement. It is hard to draw, even harder to draw when you can not see! Further, Transitions are made for riding NOT standing upon! Skate it or GO HOME!

Babe, you know I see your point, but I would hardly call these a failure! You still caught movement, and your figures are stylized in a really cool way. I dig 'em. Good job!

I love this stuff! Somehow it reminds me of "Spy Vs Spy." :-) I don't know why, but that's what comes to mind. This concept would stand out as a story board, like a cartoon strip. I think the last one is especially interesting because of the spotlight effect. Very novel idea, indeed.

Dude... that is freakin awesome. Good job.

I know you say it's not quite what you expected, but that doesn't mean it's not great... sweet stuff man.

Hmmm, not quite what you expected? But, they would look great in a skate mag - around halloween...

Dude... WTF? Those are AWESOME! Seriously! They remind me of Lance Mountains art. I suggest you have a look at some of his stuff and do this again... But these are NOT a failure by any means. Of course I dig the bones logo, but that first one is just kickass.

Failure? You jest! I can't believe they turned out so good. I'm going to have to track down your LED drummer now. I know a certain skate blog that would love to post your failure.

Kilwag said...

Yes, email me follow up comments. Sorry, forgot to check it on the last one.
