Girls and Boys Grow Old.././. Brighton 2015

Obsessive followers would have noted of late most of my works of the past year are based around the art of tattoo and graphic design. Many artists go through dramatic changes as their lives influence their decisions and their work. I am one such example../.

I have recently started work as a tattoo apprentice at Black Sails Tattoo Brighton, because of this i am finding less and less time for painting and creating Fine Art, it also means i have less and less space for my previous works and my new work expands and takes over i must make room for such changes. I have always been an advocate of free art, street exhibitions and vandalism, In a fond farewell to some of my earliest “serious” art works i found the perfect place to wave goodbye and grow a little… .. ././. Here’s to always moving forward./ .

Its finished! The biggest drawing i’ve done in a while and the first finished piece of 2015.. . /. . I give you a pirate themed sleeve with a slightly more modern take on it. I’ve mixed up the order and scale of the main themes, where in most sleeve the ship takes center stage, I’ve given credence to the octopus and compass and added a huge abstract paint smear which blends into the waves instead of filling exclusively with flowers and treasure.. ././. .I am very pleased with how its turned out. /

Working on a new commission, a full length pirate sleeve, drawn to scale./. . ./ .
The brief was to include an octopus, a pirate ship, a compass and a pirate pin-up girl./ I decided to keep it quite traditional, so after a bit of research i also included treasure, black roses , an anchor and coral to fill up the gaps and tie the whole piece together./.

After a days work i managed to get pretty much the full outline inked and the blue water/paint smear filled and tidied up./.
The rest of the piece is going to be shaded with black ink for a  dark high contrast finish./

So far.. . .. /././
