pen and ink with charcoal
Here's a couple of designs I made for a tattoo client using a crow quill pen and charcoals.
India ink, charcoal, and chalk pastels were used to create this image for one of my clients. This is one of the first pieces where I used a rose that is coming apart, or deconstructed. An element that is beginning to find its way into many of my original artworks.
Before I became a tattooer I wanted to be an illustrator for comic books or movie story boarding. When I was learning how to illustrate I spent equal time learning how to use a crow quill pen to ink my designs on bristol board. To this day I still love using the crow quill and use it when necessary for my tattoo designs.
