Respective skateboarding photographer Urban Cerjak, who invented the 'Sapindalografija' process of developing analog photos on a sheet of veneer saw a connection with his analog prints and Murksli decks. I carry on this process to create boards from it. We became really good friends and are still working together.
Creativity never left my mind, even when things went quiet on the outside. I never saw Murksli as a production factory, and I thought about that a lot. When you have standardized processes, it's really hard to get creative with an established production line. I love taking the time to create a product, to ponder the problems that come with developing a prototype, and to make sense out of it.
Decision on going back to college when my first kid was almost 10 years old was a great thing. I slowed down Murksli as an active brand and earned a degree in design engineering, and it was the best time I ever spent studying something that kept me awake and interested all the time.
