I'm working on something completely new and it's so fun!
My kids take taekwondo at an awesome local studio. This year they are having a "board break-a-thon" fundraiser to support some local charities. The amount of money each student raises gives them an opportunity to break a certain number of boards. (They love to break boards!) In fact, here are some great shots from the 2010 board-break-a-thon.
An additional component this year is an art auction of sorts. Mr. Anderson, the tkd studio owner, has asked several local artists to paint boards. The boards will be displayed at the event and anyone can bid on the boards -- and then break them!
Here is my board in progress.
I started by painting the board white, then sketching a mandala/flower/doodle and then outlining it with Sharpie.
It's nice to work with paint and markers... especially since my sewing machine is still in the shop.
