India Ink

Black and White, Design, Ink

Hey! So I’ve spent some time playing with my style and trying all sorts of new things. I’ve busted out my India Ink (Speed Ball brand) and my inking nibs. I love the feel of the non scraping the paper and catching on the fibers as I Ink.

It’s designed to help get the creative juices flowing and helping you move past that ever so irritating block.

Trifecta

Animal, Black and White, Death and Beauty


The three pieces here for you from left to right they are: Pisces’ Child, Queen Bee and Masaqurade. 

All three are for a big project I’m working on that will combine a large number of my drawings on their black and white glory and will be something to definitely keep your eye out for! It’s coming soon! πŸ˜‰ (I hope…)

ο»ΏThe lioness

Animal, Black and White, Environmental


Ink practise again. Both the lioness and my moth were taking very heavily from an artist I admire very much; Caitlin Hackett. So neither I claim as my own for this purpose but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Right??

Anyway still trying to figure the pen/nib thing out and how not to accidentally make really really thick lines when I want thinner but I’ll keep at it and figure it out πŸ™‚

Tattooed

Design, Ink, Tattoo

A very exciting update for you guys and one I’m a bit slow on posting but as you may or may not know I design tattoos along with my drawing and have sold a few as well. These are two tattoo designs I’ve done that have been inked onto the people. I think they look great if I do say so myself.  

   
A dragon inspired my Eastern mythical culture and a Scottish thistle with a bit of flair. The colouring on the thistle was also by me and was requested to be just a hint of colour, pink flowers and green leaves. The dragon has colour now too but some parts need to be fixed up a bit and once it’s healed up I’ll post that too.
