I’m a 16 year old student at OSF. Hernandez Boards delivers minimalist
and elegant board designs with collegiate style logos. My first board
was inspired by an old school pool deck and my second board is a
modern street deck.
It was fun experience making my first skateboard. It was more
difficult than I expected though: It was hard gluing up the layers of
Canadian maple veneers within a short time period before they dry and
delam. After I pressed the board onto the mold I had to sand it and
shape it. This was the first project I’ve woodworked. I applied the
graphic by making a mock up on Photoshop then resizing it and
transferring it on to masking tape. I had to cut out the tape to make
a stencil that I then spray painted over. To finish both boards I
glossed them to seal them.
I feel proud of my first boards. The reason why I named my brand after
myself is that my last name is unique and interesting. It’s cool that
popular brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein etc. are named after
the founder and the name becomes a memorable brand. I’m excited to
launch my personal brand at our end of semester Pop Up Shop at
Anomaly, January 26 7-10PM.

Hi, my brand is Crewel Intentions.

I'm inspired by “old” styles and “new” styles of art: some examples are embroidery, classical oil painting, textiles, taxidermy to even the most simple of aesthetics. The image itself was created from a photo I took some time last year mid-winter, yet it was still very green and alive. The painting I did will never be as breathtaking as the photo I took but the painting is technically a more loose representation of what I felt on that day. The idea behind this board was to make it a personal rideable board. How I created this board was I took seven sheets of Canadian maple, three of which are colored. I prepared this air press bag and a mold from far in the back of the strong hold, then I took the wood veneers, glued them together and I stuck them in the bag and then waiting a full 24 hours to start aggressively woodworking my board. I used a jigsaw and a very crappy hand saw to cut out the shape. I wanted to sand it with four different grits of sandpaper and then it was onto the painting. The process of painting took quite a while, first I started with spray paint and then moved onto to the finer details with acrylic paint, and then I noticed the color was much too saturated. I went over it with water colors until I was happy with the color scheme, but I still couldn’t get it to a place where I liked it. When I'm making something for myself I just have to keep reworking it until it's perfect, but it never will be but that's alright, beauty is in the eye of the beholder even if that's not me.  

Thank you for listening to my ramblings! Find more: @crewel_intentions
