Ink // Tattooed on leather


Tooled


In reclaimed ash frame, with leather inlay


50 x 70 cm


.......................



I thought I would share my latest piece of 'death head devotion' with you!


If you 'follow' my work on any of the social platforms, you will by now have seen the piece now called ‘Rhythm of life’ (in progress)


It was created for the exhibition of over 40 ‘skull artists’ from around the world, curated by Mr Four Fingers.


The exhibition runs in Shoreditch, London . Find out more HERE. It runs from Halloween, so if you are in the London area, go see it, its got some truly inspirational artists showing there!



It is called ‘Rhythm of life’


It features 3 skulls (front, side and the mandible) set within a geometric hourglass and falling sand. Alongside a few of my symbolic favorites … botanicals, snake, mandala, cosmos.


In a couple of previous posts , I have talked about how my work is created (linked below)


BARE BONES


DARK HEART


EVERYTHING HAS BEAUTY


So, I will keep this post short and show you the start to finish shots. And not talk too much!


My work is created on vegetable tanned natural leather, which is tattooed with one needle (yes a single needle!) by a regular tattoo machine, it is then ‘tooled’ and embossed to add some depth .


WORK IN PROGRESS




Choosing the leather




Starting the design






Adding in detail



The process is immensely time consuming, with layers and layers of fine lines to get the right weights. It is rather a labour of love in more ways than one! The nature of the material means the needle bounces and cuts and tears into the leather, making a smooth line pretty tricky!











Watch this space, as I will be releasing a LIMITED EDITION art print, soon!

Lion & Eagle Commission


This was created for an American and English couple.


Together, we created a piece around the 'american eagle' & ‘british lion’


We chose roses to go into the work. The tudor rose (british national flower) & the grand prix rose (red), which was their wedding flower.






You can read all about how this commission was created here


You can look at more of my commission work here


Thanks go out to my fab clients!

Creating memories ….



I love creating art by commission, as you can really make each piece special to the client.




Leather is the gift for a third year anniversary, this piece is called 'Entomology'




Here is a little bit about this project



My clients wanted an 'entomology' themed design, featuring a bee, moth, may bug, grasshopper, scarab beetle & dragonfly. The design also incorporated a triangle into the theme to represent their 3 years together. (29 x 29 cm)



Here are some photos of how the creative process works ….
