Anchor Skateboards made in the USA

Nha Trang, Vietnam is home of Paul Trihn, owner of Anchor Skateboards. Paul and I have been friends for longer than anyone could imagine, and have always tried to help each other out whenever asked. A few months ago I got a call from Paul asking me to do a board graphic for his shop. There were a few requirements for the image to include an anchor, and something resembling the water fronts of Vietnam. Easy enough. Until I tried painting it and realized I did not know how to paint waves to look like an etching. One month later I was able to put the brush down and deliver this. Thanks Paul for the opportunity to learn something new.
