Art that influences me…

Obviously for work as a tattooer I am influenced greatly by all Japanese art and artists but I do enjoy many other types of art.  Fine art to Comic Book art.  I think you can find inspiration anywhere.

A local artist I was introduced to in a gallery while on vacation is Jeffrey Briggs.  He does awesome sculpture work.  You can see more of his work here- http://www.briggssculpture.com/JeffreyBriggsReliefs/BasReliefs/Reliefs.html

Vladislav Provotorov is a Russian painter that many metal bands have used for cover art.  He worked a lot during the 80s and his art is dark and powerful.  You can see more of his work here- http://www.afonsky.com/MF/ENTER-VProvoGallery.htm

issue02sample02-largeDavid Mack is a comic book artist I was introduced to back when I was in High School.  Combining watercolor/guache, collage, and pen/ink, and pencils he makes beautiful artwork.  He is on Facebook and twitter and has a website guide to his work.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/David-Mack/21231086294?id=21231086294&sk=info

IMG_0027 Finally I included my favorite pin-up artist Bill Ward.  What he could do with charcoal and conte was nothing short of genius.  And I’m a sucker for pin-up art.  You can see more of his work here- http://www.womenofward.net/

I have many more that I could share…some are typical and I thought these were some of the more unique and/or unexpected.  Anyways, if you dig it…ENJOY!
