  1. thought I'd start a thread about things people use & know about Watercolor (& Gouache, Ink, FW etc) after painting several things on actual loose Arches paper, I'm doing a big piece on one of their blocks and I think it SUCKS!! The quality of the paper just doesn't seem as good, everything is just sticking so hard, have to pre-wet everything til it practically seeps through the lines... I remember Bob talking about how even in the rolls it's never as good as the individual sheets. I just scored a big sheet of 400lb, haven't used it yet. anyway, I like Speedballs, Chinese/Japanese lining brushes (MenSou), Daniel Smith watercolors, some Holbien, squirrel hair brushes for watering, series 7 brushes, although DaVinci's are nice too. There's a lady in england I found out about who's supposed to make amazing brushes that are reasonable, haven't tried her out yet. paining wise, as it relates to tattoos, I really love Hokusai, Kyosai, Ed, Roper, Ichibay, Lehi, Nick Rodin if you wanna read a lot about different watercolor brands, this is rad: handprint : watercolor brands anyone have material/technique stuff to share?

  5. Haven't seen a dedicated all-around art thread, and Hogg couldn't think of one either. Tattoo-related or not. Stuff you've done or stuff you like. Hobo Nickels: Appalachian History » Hobo Nickels Coin collectors today consider the hobo nickel a numismatic treasure, a tribute to long- forgotten folk artists who often literally carved for their supper. The Buffalo nickel debuted in 1913, but it wasn’t until the Great Depression struck that hobo nickel carving reached its peak. During this period, buffalo nickels were the most common nickels in circulation. The sudden scarcity of jobs in the early 1930s forced a huge number of men to hit the road. Certainly some coins were carved to fill the idle hours. More importantly, a ‘knight of the road,’ with no regular source of income, could take one of these plentiful coins and turn it into a folk art piece, which could in turn be sold or traded for small favors such as a meal or shelter for a night. In a community of generally anonymous drifters, two carvers rose to prominence among hobo nickel creators. Bertram ‘Bert’ Wiegand was born in 1880 and carved from 1913 to 1949. He signed his coins by removing L I and Y from L I B E R T Y, leaving only B E R T. He tutored the man coin collectors consider the giant of hobo nickel carving: George Washington ‘Bo’ Hughes (born between 1895 and 1900 in Theo, Mississippi). Bert met the young teenager in a jungle, or hobo camp, along the Gulf, Mobile and Ohio railroad line, and Bo’s first nickels appeared two years later, in 1915. Bo carved till about 1980, when he was last seen by his friend of 40 years, Williard Chisolm, in a Florida camp. Life as a hobo took its toll: the rigorous manual labor Bo undertook to survive during the money-tight, poverty-ridden 30s rendered his hands stiff and permanently damaged. Frequent beatings by ruthless detectives prowling railroads (where many hobos resided) in search of freeloaders and thieves compounded his dexterity impairment. Nevertheless, devoted to his craft, Bo worked through the pain and frustrating impediments throughout the 1940s and into the 1950s, but in 1957, while he was working on a nickel, his chisel suddenly slipped and struck his hand. The injury forced the once-great hobo nickel engraver to resort to a haphazard punching method. Bo continued his work, but with less frequency and diminished quality, and as America moved into the post-war era genuine hobo nickels became a thing of the past. The U.S. Mint ceased striking Buffalo nickels in 1938. Skull Nickels: Skull Nickels | Colossal A number of Hobo Nickel artists etched away the flesh of the subject to reveal these awesomely macabre skulls.
  6. Hello! So this is my second intro post, but ive taken my original idea and reworked it, Just would like some feedback. Basically, the body drawings are rough sketches, of course the feathers would be done better and the little girl would look more like the one in the pic with the long quote. The quote ive shortened to "happiness is not the absence of struggle". There's a ton of meaning behind every inch of this design and I could explain it, but really im just looking for feedback on the tattoo aesthetically. Im planning on keeping it all black ink, but if you think colour would look nice somewhere, let me know! This will be my first tattoo so all the feedback is appreciated greatly. Keep in mind these are rough sketches and my artist (who I met today!! :D ) will be drawing it out more nicely. Im likely going to have to break it up into pieces and do it over the course of the year because of cost, opposed to squeezing it into a month or two. As far as pricing goes, what do you guys think? I just want to get a few more quotes before I commit to this shop. Thanks a million! cant get photos to upload on post.. check out my gallery :)
  7. Hi everyone Just wanted to say a quick hello, I'm just beginning a career in the tattoo field and feel so privileged at the opportunity to join this very special family. I'm the personal assistant to an amazing artist here in Chicago. We travel a lot and frequent conventions but starting to branch out solo sans shop. As I continue to legitimize my artist and make the leap into so many of the new outlets for not only his tattoo work but also art work I'd really appreciate advice from people who have been there already. Just set up an Instagram and etsy shop but really interested in submitting flash to magazines and websites but a little unsure how all that works. Anyway, enough rattling. Hello and thank you for reading! Mina

    Secret Wars

    Anyone been to any of these live art battles , too good. Theyve changed their name to Secret Walls too - thesecretwalls For anyone thats not aware - its a live art battle with the following rules : 90 minutes on the battle clock Only black SW special markers and black acrylic paint can be used as battle weapons No pencils / sketches should be on stage or used as reference Each artist has to stay within the allocated space, if they creep over then there will be a 1 point deduction Battles are judged by 2 nominated and neutral guest judges + crowd vote (3 point system) (using a decibel reader) Hosted on giant white walls Pure fun . I think theres an event in New York
  9. I was wondering what are the thoughts of non-tattooers owning flash/tattoo art. I have been itching to buy some flash/tattoo art to add to my art collection. This does bring up the question....are there any opinions of non-tattooers owning flash/tattoo art? Coming from a family of artists I know sometimes art will not be sold to "the unworthy" or something along the lines of such. I was even thinking along the lines of having some kind of "custom" flash sets made. No real guidelines just a basic idea for what would be in the flash set (i.e. panther, skull/dagger, etc) Any ideas?
  10. Hello, I found this interesting blog about Japanese Manhole cover art that I thought people here might be interested in: An example: Here is the blog link: Drainspotting: 61 Amazing Manhole Covers from Japan | gwarlingo They made me think about cross walk lights I saw in Germany while backpacking a long time ago: Pretty cool and charming to me. *Going to recommend/ask about being able to post up on a wall or something, feels kinda spam-my putting up a new thread for this, but alas....
  11. I'm gonna stir the pot here, and I want to be clear that this is all in an effort to understand, not confront or argue. I promise. smiling.politely posted a painting the other day and asked about pricing in his thread. The minute I saw it, I thought, "Uh oh.." But you learn a lot from year to year as you get older and while tossing up a panther head painting and asking about pricing in a forum full of curmudgeonly tattooers is not the best idea, I thought, "Shit.. I guess I won't mention my own sketchbook. Or messing around with watercolors." So, aside from trying to cash in on generally accepted tattoo designs, it comes back to this question of ownership. As far back as I can remember, I drew and I drew on myself. When I got older I bought tattoo magazines and drew designs out of there, sometimes for friends, none of whom actually got tattooed. I was definitely not a great artist. I have the utmost respect for those on here who are career tattooers. But I sit in my kitchen when I have the time, and draw. And yep, sometimes they're (poorly drawn) panthers and pharoahs horses and lady heads. Ms. Rad said something on ShannonShirley's blog: "i even draw flash in my sketchbook, but i wouldn't dare show anyone what i've created... tattooing is a whole different world, and i've come to the conclusion to not even try to understand it since i will always be an outsider" So we're all obviously outsiders. I guess the question is why we're not allowed to draw traditional designs. I draw other things, too, but I feel that tattoos have been such a part of me for so long, it's hard not to want to try drawing a panther head a new way, or get my roses down. (Damn, roses are tough..) And right now, I'm cringing just like I did when I read the post asking about pricing for the painting because I almost don't want to read the responses. I'm sure smiling.politely didn't mean to insult anyone. I hope I'm not insulting anyone. One of the great things about LST is us regular civilians get to learn. I still remember Alanna's post about going from watching tattoo tv shows to learning about Amund Dietzel and getting a Dietzel tattoo from Nick Colella (I think it was). So.. if no one is trying to take money out your mouths, and someone shows an interest in the art side of it, why assume the worst? All tattooers were the same regular folks before, drawn to art, enamored with tattoos, drawn to it all for whatever reason. And I think there's something to be said for defending your craft so vehemently. Tell me to fuck off and die if you want, but this probably won't stop me from continuing to draw. Because unless someone straight up copies, nobody owns "panther head" or "pair of swallows." If they did, nobody would have been tattooing them for the last hundred years. Hope I didn't offend anyone, just trying to understand.
  12. I think it's good practice and amusing, I'm trying to master drawing richard stell from my head, but haven't mastered it yet (keep making him too skinny) here are 2, I never look at stuff, just try to get the gestures and feel from memory I dunno why 2nd one is sideways, tried to fix it anyone else have any?
  13. Doin $50 for this set. $80 for this and the older one together. Hit me up.
  14. Hi everyone! I'd love it if anyone who is in the San Francisco area could come and attend this awesome art show featuring some amazing tattoo artists from all over. Musicians from great bands are also contributing visual works... Please check out this banner and come, I'm excited to meet anyone from LST in the area!!!
  15. I have a hand full of these prints available. 12'' x 12'' printed by Jay at Alpha Reprographics on watercolor paper. $25 paypal to [email protected] Also available in the merch section of my website www.kylecrowell.com
  16. Alright so I know a lot of people get Dia De Los Muertos stuff tattooed on them because it is "cool" or "in" but there are those that truly love, understand, and celebrate it. So in the spirit, memory, and celebration of Dia De Los Muertos who on LST celebrates Dia De Los Muertos wether it is personally or goes to your local town/cities event? Who has Dia De Los Muertos tattoos and yes pictures are always appreciated? Etc? What does your Dia De Los Muertos look like? Here is the info for the SF one that I try attend every year for the past thirteen years up here. I was introduced to Dia De Los Muertos as a kid by the local latino kids I ran with for a few years and have since made it one of my most celebrated and enjoyed "holidays". It is unfortunate but this year may not be what it historically has been due to finances and other reasons of the Mission becoming gentrified. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as mentioned below raised and donated some money. If you are unfamiliar with them they are pretty awesome and very very supportive and active in many Bay Area fundraising events so encourage you to check them out as well. http://www.dayofthedeadsf.org/
  17. Since most of you are in the "Art" community, I figured you would all love this dude. You all have probably heard of this guy, but its worth it for the people who have not. Brandon Bird paints some of the most ridiculous pictures, and creates the one and only Law and Order: SVU Valentines Day cards. My favorite is Letters to Walken. No need to explain. Just go look. http://www.brandonbird.com/walken_letters.html My favorite.
  18. I did this set earlier this year. Excuse the obnoxiousness of the add... i wanted it to look ridiculous.
  19. This is a 6 sheet split set i painted with Jeremy Joachim of Hot Stuff Tattoo in Asheville. We each painted a few old Grimshaw designs for each sheet of the set the set is printed on thick stock and is $60. Paypal is [email protected], ill cover the shipping thanks nick
