I'm Board 6: How I came up with my skateboard design

I created a skateboard design for the I'm Board 6 art show. This article will show you my design and thought process as I created the board graphic for the show.

I have wanted to incorporate a reference the the movie Cobra for some time now. I believe the line “You’re the disease and I’m the cure” is the best action movie line ever! I always crack up when I hear it though. Because I think of the band “The Cure” when he says the line. I am a sucker for mixing opposites too. I always like to see what happens when you mix high and low class, Punk music with Bluegrass, etc.. The movie and the band could not be more opposite.

Below is a video clip of the famous scene and a cure song for your reference.
