APPLY FOR A FREE SKATEBOARD >

 

Western Montana has a blossoming skate scene, fantastic skateparks, and too many underprivileged kids without the proper equipment to take part.  4Missoula is here to find these kids and provide them with a skateboard and helmet, so they too can participate in this fun, outdoor sport.

The Sixty-First Skateboard Donation

Annelise Hedahl, the sponsor for our sixty-first skateboard donation, is a real genuine doer. This is Annelise's second donation! Her first donation, The Nanny Mitch, was 4Missoula Skateboard Donation #5 and a tribute to her childhood nanny, Mitch. This board, The T-Wags, is dedicated to her friend and mentor, Tamy Wagner and includes three big screen heroes who represent what makes Tamy so awesome.

From a design aspect I really like this board because the T-Wags logo (which is pretty cool in and of itself) was placed using Illustrator's perspective tool, allowing for a consistent, low-angle look on that side of the board. Then on the other side we have an inverted Yoda, which is sort of a wise acknowledgement to the antithetical vantage points out there.

With a Wonder Woman theme, I had always figured this board going to a girl, but after showing Annelise the finished product it became clear that this board was good for either gender. Aha! - what a wonderful realization.

Thank you so much, Annelise, for the opportunity to create this board, to grow as a designer, and to honor your dear friend, T-Wags.

Sincerely,

SPM
