.... and i am so behind on this blog its unreal ha. Firstly:
The project kicked off properly in September, 70 blank skate decks were sent out to 70 Tattoo Artists Around the UK and a few in the States :) I've seen a few "works in progress" so far and they look awesome, also heard that one of em is gona be like 5-6 feet long when finished hah. Seriously cannot wait to start getting these boards back over the next few months and seeing what people have been up to. Heres my effort so far.......
Its so close to completion, just the sabers and highlights to do really, gonna get on it in Jan, also managed to get it signed by Darth Vader himself Dave Prowse when he was in Cardiff last, cant wait to see what this makes at auction.
I did another Star Wars related deck back in Oct for a charity auction at the Halloween Bash in Newton Abbott, it went for £300 in the end, couldnt believe it :)
Had the chance to do some awesome work in the last few months as well, a few more realism pieces ande portraits n stuff, heres some of my Favourites :)
Did these 2 on my mate Parker from Bristol, its the start of a full leg piece and i am loving it at the mo, i think it has to be my favourite piece I'm working on at the moment.
Did these 2 a few months back, used my fave Suicide Girl Radeo as referance
the one below is part of an ongoing sleeve of DOTD girls, really enjoying this as well.
This is SPAAAARTA!!!!
Did this just last week, part of a big rib piece, tried a different colour scheme and uses someone other than Radeo as ref haha
Ha ha wouldn't be me with out the odd Star Wars tattoo :)
Did the one below at the Halloween Bash 2011 it won Best Small Colour :)
Got to do Hannibal, hopefully the start of a Horror Icon Sleeve, fingers crossed
