"Heart Means Everything"

Monday, December 1, 2008

HAHAHA, interesting solution. I kind of surprised myself with this one.

Assignment for SooJin Buzelli. A possible publication. This was fun to do.

Over the summer I did freelance work for Calvin Klein. Here were my finished designs that they agreed on. It was a very new experience to work for someone like them, but I learned alot.
Just a flash sheet on some hot-press paper,  not my favorite, but its a decent sheet.

Gypsy. Worked on this over a 3 day period during the summer. Its a really sweet frame.
This was fun! An Irish key of the back of someone's arm.

Did this apprenticing over the summer on a good friend of mine.
God, I want to be tattooing. No more school I'm ready for the real world.

Word. This be an Eagle.

Fighting and Fuckin'... Thesis for Junior year. I attempted to mix too many styles of tattooing and I'm still not sure how successful I was with the result. Never made it into the show at the end of the year, but I definately learned alot and it was quite a challenge working so large scale. P.S. I chose to illustrate Ramses II.

HA, good story behind this one.... I was soo proud when I finished this painting. It came out so good. Entered it in the Upstarts Show @ Saved Tattoo and never got it back, Nice right?!

This was my first pair I painted for my brother. Because of these I have done 4 other pairs.

YEEEAAHHHH!! Fresh pair of kicks for a good friend of mine.

HANNYA!! I just love Japanese tattoo work. The compositions, the colors, the meanings behind all of the imagery is so incredible. I would love to be tattooing stuff like this on people. All I have to do is find an apprenticeship and hopefully be on my way.
I worked on this over the summer as well. Sugar Skull. I have found a bunch of paintings very similar in composition with roses around the skull, so I feel I didn't think too much outside the box, but at the time I had fun working on this one.

Here is a pair of Vans slip ons I did over the summer for a friend of mine. I really like working on a 3-D surface you have to think a little differently than just working on a canvas or sheet of paper.

First Day

I have just started my blog, with some help I would like to have a website in the very near future as well, on account it IS one of our assignments for class. My fall semester of senior year is coming to a close soon and things are pretty tough. I will be posting some pictures of work from this year in a bit. 

I would like to mention for all of those artists out there whether you be photographers, illustrators, painters, cartoonists, tattooists, etc., if you haven't heard of the Orphan Works please check it out. It is a bill that can possibly be passed and play a huge part in the art world and in society in general. If you have a few minutes check out some of the links I have posted to get an idea of how crazy this thing is.
