I am more than happy to be writing this right now -things in my life had been quite busy lately, so being able to just sit and start typing it’s getting quite relaxing… and I am excited too for showing you all the details of the last illustration I’ve been working on this week.
We had a flash event many moons ago where we celebrated spring and we all got inspired by our newest resident artist at the shop: Subliquida (Andrea Baiardo) He is an eccentric (but lovely) man who is obssesed with nature. I’ve never met before someone with such a passion for insects and botanical, and i’ts something that one can clearly appreciate in his own artwork. The event we had was an inauguration of his exposition at Meatshop, so we worked on some flash based on that theme. Unfortunately, I didn’t had enough time or inspiration to came with a bunch of flash as I usually do when we have flash events -but I made some of them which I ended up pretty happy with.
Still, I haven’t got to tattoo them! So that’s why I though about making a proper illustration of this designs -I wish that if you are closer to what my vision for the tattoo is, you will be as excited as me as seeing them on some skin.
I worked on this illustration in a way I haven’t worked in such a long time! Color pencils where my option for this little project, as I was at the shop and forgot about my watercolors at my place (duh) I am quite happy with the result. For sure I will use more color pencils in a future. Here you can see some other shots from the piece, details and a little bit of the process with the dotting.
And that’s it. Remember that this design is made for be a tattoo!! Don’t doubt in writing me, I do think it deserves a nice portion of skin to show off to the world.
