Flashing Lights

May8

Tron meets the horse men of the appocolypse, that was my first thought, when seeing these works from Mateusz Sypien. Pretty trippy stuff, but very rad indeed.  The series is entitled “Death in Motion”.

Not your Everyday Tattoo

April25

I just got a new addition to my tat artist wish list… Peter Aurisch. Damn! How amazing is the guys stuff? It’s so nontraditional, a whole new style, like modern illustration meets tattoos. Loving the angles and “fake” colour brush strokes. Beautiful! PS one or two shots are a little NSFW.

Illustration Tuesday (Possibly NSFW)

April10

I’ll be honest being back at work on this cold Tuesday morning after the long weekend, has me down something brutal. So what better way to pick yourself up and get inspired with some fantastic illustration. These pieces are from Jace Wallace, the vibrant, playfull nature is just what I was looking for to get things rolling this week. Enjoy (oh and possibly a little NSFW).

Acid Flow

April2

Here it is, my latest custom, in the form of a 7″ Munny entitled “Acid Flow”. This piece started out as some fun for myself, getting back to my roots in graffiti and letting it come out more heavily in my vinyl work. I was quite happy to be creating a toy with only myself to please, but I must admit I was even happier when it ended up selling before it was even finished! Drop me a comment with what you guys think :)

Metamorphosis

March16

Now I am not one for posting ads on this site, but the animation for this short which pays homage to Hunter S. Thompson and Franz Kafka is just too amazingly brilliant to let it slide. By FAR my favourite animated piece of work this year.

West Coast Flavour

March14

I am a fan of this style, so no doubt why the work of Mike Giant is so appealing to me. Those fresh clean lines, tattoo inspirtaion, chicano lettering and fine ladies. Then take a step back and learn that these are all created with Sharpies and inks, awesome.
