    Whoa! Ashley, can you tell us more about this?

  2. I was tasked to create an image on a skateboard by a local gallery for a fundraiser. This ground was new to me and I was intimidated by the narrow space. Initially I wanted to take a graphical approach and thought of the ribcage idea – as when you skate, the aerobic activity is mostly felt in the chest. But, the composition seemed to be sparse, and was missing something. So, I turned it into a hanging cage to add a little more visual interest. Naturally, a bird went well with this new direction.
