I did a quick project last night that I thought I’d share. A friend of mine is doing a long distance road inline skate race in a couple weeks, and also moving to Texas from Seattle. I wanted to do something as a going away gift and to commemorate his race, which he’s been training for quite a bit.
Nike being the winged goddess of victory seemed like a good theme, so I recycled the wing design that @Shell made me for my mask and found a neat quote about the mental aspect of victory that Nike represents and made this:
The gold doesn’t show up great in our fluorescent lighting, but I’m going to get a gold sharpie and have all his friends here sign it before we give it to him before the race. There’s a slot and some stuff on the back to strengthen it up and allow him to elastic and fix it to his skates. He’s going to be the nerdiest most missed skater in the race.
(The project came together really quickly – I already had some designs, so mostly just finding a quote and adding holes in the plank to fix the wings on… I didn’t even cut around the edge of the wood, I just dragged the design to the center and hit print.)
