We've all been hit with some hard times these last couple years, but things are starting to look up. One thing we always emphasize here at Mini Truckin' is that even when funds are tight, there is always a way to stay involved!

As we're all saving our pennies for the bigger projects and the parts we need to finish said projects, there's still fun and creative ways to interact, decorate, or just be creative with your spare time and change. Inspired by our special Art Issue and our photo shoot at Coast Airbrush we decided to do something cool to get everyone involved. We teamed up with Coast Airbrush to bring you this Skate Deck Art Contest where some of the hottest painters in our own minitruck scene painted, striped, and got down on some boards for your viewing pleasure. In fact the contest was so popular that there will be a round two coming your way soon! All of these top winners will be posted on MiniTruckinWeb.com where you can log in and vote for your favorites. With over 50 entries, and hundreds of contestants it was nearly impossible to weed it down to these finalists. For more information on the next rounds coming up, email mini.truckin@sorc.com. These contests are sponsored by Coast Airbrush (CoastAirbrush.com) and Round Two will feature some of Coast's best artists so make sure to check it out.

Here are the top boards in each of our three categories for Round 1:
