This was a fun one. Sag, a tattooer from NY was in town and had me bang this one out on him yesterday. I got unintentionally sucked into one of those trends in the tattoo world! Ha, oh well.

There wasn’t much inspiration for this other than wanting to paint some things that i liked to look at. Old furniture, sickles, flowers and of course some wheat. It may seem random and obscure but, can you really go wrong there?

I drew this Jesus looking at a Joe Darpel page of flash. Pretty stoked about the outcome. I didn’t plan on doing the background but a few stray paint smudges made the decision for me.

My buddy is doing some bird taxidermy which inspired me to paint these dead birds. The border was a last minute addition that i think really sets it off.

Cranked these two out in the past few days. I’m really stoked on the end products.

Just did this on another local tattooer. Pretty stoked on how it turned out. I even did a few maggots on the bones at the bottom but they are hard to see in the photo.

Thanks to Ben Corday for painting amazing designs, and Hardy Marks for putting out an awesome book, i had great reference for this one. i am trying to do more directly drawn paintings. So, as opposed to drawing and transferring and or tracing i am Just drawing straight onto the paper. It’s not much different, it just makes me ‘feel’ like i am ripping someone off just a little less. haha. Not really, its just fun.
