So yeah dabbling with some more moth related pics, sent the last few days doing the dot shading on these new skull moths. I think they turned out pretty good.

All Pens and then a little bit of tidy up in photoshop.

beautiful!! I'd love those skull moths as tattoo. They're beautiful and unique - whole new take on "death moth"!

Very intriguing, the skulls on the moths are almost hypnotic to look at. I can totally see this on the cover of a novel!

I've been inspired lately by the works of Vania and Takato Yamamoto, the levels of detail in some of their work is awe inspiring.

Vania and Takato Yamamoto are my favourite artists! I've been wanting to buy their artbooks for the longest time but my mum would probably freak out if she knows I owe such artbooks... :(

Yeah I'm hoping to get one of the books for my birthday, I really love their work a lot. Did you see the Dracula poster Vania did recently? Its stunning. [link]

Ah your mum will get over it, you need to get the things you like and eventually they accept that its part of who you are. My family hate tattoos, but they have gotten over it now I'm half covered in them...

No I haven't, thanks for the link! It's very creepy yet beautiful, very Vania-ish. His attention to detail is simply mind-blowing.

Wow. That must have taken a lot of courage on your part. But I guess a tattoo artist wouldn't be very convincing if one isn't covered in tattoos, is it?

Yeah I want to be able to put that kind of detail into stuff one day, but its his grasp of the form and interplay of objects that amazes me too. His work is just stunning.

It was more about realising that my art and outlook was about me and not other peoples perception. I started getting tattoos in places that weren't on public display and have always relished the trust you have to put into an artist to let them make a good piece. I hope one day to be a tattooist but I'm not one now, I have worked in a couple of studios and am involved with the art side but thats it. My days are just doing freelance graphic work and selling my art to people for now.

I'm surprised you're not one yet! I believe you'd make a good tattooist one day as long as you hold on to that dream though.

Yeah I've worked in a few shops and done some tatooing but not enough to call myself a tattooist, one day I'll find the right place and people to work with and I'm sure it'll come together.

What are your plans? Are you going to make a go with illustration?

I might be getting a bit obsessed with Pushead again at the moment, but trying to do it my way rather than pinch stuff from his work ;)
