Working on this beautifully crafted longboard sees James back working on skatedecks. From a young age, James would rework friends' scratched decks simply using marker pens 'loaned' from school and varnish. On this Neptune inspired board, James uses heavy body acrylic paint and Posca pigment pens. James-David lives and works in London.
