I'm looking to trade high quality skull reference pictures from skulls you own for pictures of skulls I own. My aim is to build as large a collection of good reference pictures as possible for my work, I'm trying to make all my studies from real skulls now.

I currently have 2 new prints up for sale on my webstore here fromtheblue.bigcartel.com and a new sketchbook available through mdcindustries.bigcartel.com

Sweet print dealio

As I mentioned before I can mostly be found on Tumblr or Facebook now here godlovesawinner.tumblr.com and here www.facebook.com/people/Jon-Md… for updates on paintings, illustrations and my tattoo work.

I also have a new business which I'm using for my none skull specific work, there are still some skulls involved but its not the focus... Its called From The Blue Inc and can be found here

I've made pocket mirrors, keyrings, badges, bottle openers, tote bags and started a range of limited jewellery from my illustrations. 1st up was this deathshead moth necklace

Deathshead Moth

All of the cherrywood have sold though there are still a couple of the perspex left.

Presently there is this piece made from my Mothzilla print

Mothzilla

These can be purchased online or are available in meat space from Asgard Tattoos in Winchester, Hants, UK.

I've got a bunch of ideas for new and exciting stuff coming up in the New Year so add me over on FB and Tumblr to keep updated more often.

Ooh wow its been a while since I updated this journal but don't worry I haven't abandoned DA! I've been kinda out of action in some ways and busy in others, I got on FB and discovered that most of the people that buy my stuff get to me quicker through there so it made sense to invest more in that site. I'm making a concerted effort to consolidate my stuff via the newly opened www.mdcindustries.co.uk but it really needs a lot of work, currently it mainly links out to my blog, redbubble account, etc... Working on a new sketchbook, more flash, new business cards with the website and just generally getting my stuff out there, if you like my art then tell your friends about it too!

I have a new print available directly from me:-

Jon MDC,wasps,skulls,mdcindustries

Its a limited issue of 25 prints for £25 inc P&P, 6 have gone since this morning so get in touch asap if your interested.

In the meantime I'm headed into hospital on Valentines Day to finally get my teeth sorted out, so keep your fingers crossed for me!

Meantime I'm loaded for bear, still chewing painkillers like they are going out of fashion in a bid to numb my tooth pain. Seems like forever I've been waiting to go into hospital with this shit but its more like 3 weeks and probably at least another 4 to go... Who thought the health service was gonna be so rubbish?

Well my impromptue road trip to Sweden ended in a bucket load of fail, I didn't finish the job as the van broke down in northern Germany and I had to hang around an industrial estate in Neumunster, can't recommend it. The van is still there and I'm back in the UK, somewhat emotionally drained and in the midst of a karmic backlash. Between cars/vans dying and trying to end me, I'm getting fines, potential legal issues, no steady job, waiting on payment from completed work and just generally trying to keep on top of the money I had to borrow to get my sorry ass home... You try to smile and carry on but it gets to you sometimes...

Whining ends...

Gonna try to channel some more skulls to get me back on track and have made a start on a new flash set as my 1st has been retired to pastures new (more info on that once the guys I sold it too have all the website set up). I still have some of the Spider Skull screen prints available, £15 inc postage silver print on black card all numbered and signed.

Why is it that I complain I've not been out of the UK in a couple of years and then I have to clear 5 countries in 4 days driving an old transit van... The glamour of it all eh!

Will up date my blog when I'm back hopefully with a bunch of road trip pics! x

Anyway in a bid to try and raise some money I've got 25 hand silkscreened prints for sale, they are A3 silver print on black card and they cost £15 UK including postage, heres some awful photographs of a bit of the process and print... damnable Iphone pics... monkeydeathcult,mdcindustries,Jon MDC

Its a terrible waste that Ryan August has been taken from his family in such a tragic event as a car crash, he is survived by his wife and son. Ryan's dedication and artistic integrity has made the I Want Your Skull website and zine one of the biggest influences in my work and many others. He will be a gaping hole in many peoples lives.

Whatever your working on get a skull in there as a tribute to a great artist!

Ok well I followed :iconinkxcore: advice and added the 'follow' and 'subscribe' features to my blog to make it easier to stalk me...

I've popped up a couple of bits you won't see anywhere else and I'll probably do a bit of cross posting once I get some new finished work on the go. There will be sketches going up as regularly as possible and I will try and put some other content such as some reviews of my fave reference books and sites, so you can see the method behind my madness.

Anyhoo its godlovesawinner.blogspot.com go check it out and leave me some comments...

Also check out thetraditionalway.blogspot.com… its Don Chuck's new blog and he's making me look lazy as usual...

In the meantime buy some of my artwork people, I needs to eat. ;p

Well here goes nothing, I'm making an effort to organise my online stuff better. I've set up a blog spot godlovesawinner.blogspot.com which I'm aiming to update with regular bits and pieces, sketches and other such shizzle rather than my finished pieces that I post here and Redbubble. There are links to my new Big Cartel store front for my Flash and Sketchbooks with more bits in the offing mdcindustries.bigcartel.com/

In my ongoing search and destroy myself mission I got another big chunk of work on my leg yesterday from Steve Vinall @ Jayne Doe in Hornchurch his myspace is www.myspace.com/steve_vinall and the shops is www.myspace.com/jaynedoetattoo go comment on his pics and make sure to comment on his 'sick whip'and awesome 'freestyling' powers... I might post pics of my leg so far but I like how no one can rip it off at the mo.

Oh Suffer The Children is available on a shirt from www.redbubble.com/mdcindustrie… and it looks a little something like this

Check out a review of the book posted here www.swallowsndaggers.net/artic… on the Swallows & Daggers blog. This is a sweet little blog and printed zine dedicated to Traditional and Neo Traditional tattoos and tattoo art. Thanks guys!

Click the pic to take you to myspace if your interested in buying a copy!

I'm hoping to have a new Flash set of 16 black and grey skulls up for sale in the next month and I really wanna post some bits up here too but time hasn't left me much room recently. Also been asked to submit some work to another skull related project, more info once the work is finalised.

Oh yeah and valentines day can get lost, fricking made up none holidays to sell cards... ;p

I'm 33 on the 18th of February, thats next thursday and damn if I don't feel old right now.... :ahoy:

Just finished this today and had the first batch printed! Win...

Contact me if you want one or click the pic to go to Myspac and use the Buy Now buttons. Volumes 1 and 2 are still available and selling well, but this is a much better representation of where my work is at now.

I'll be at Brighton Tattoo Convention on the Sunday if you wanna buy one directly!

Expect to see some new flash and possibly a 4th sketchbook but very different soon.

1st gig of 2010 was Hope Conspiracy at the Camden Underworld (thanks to Jonas and the A!V! boys for the guest list) frickin awesome as always. They never fail to make me feel alive. Nothing else planned except maybe Ramesses in March and Narrows in April, and they are being supported by Heiress fronted by Pettibone previously of HIMSA so I'm a bit excitable about that... ;)
