I have always admired tattoo artists. The traditional flash style is by far my favorite. It is straightforward and most effective with fewer lines. Each stroke inspires the next, eventually lapping back. It’s especially fascinating to see this developing in real time. I like to take this approach on the page, rarely drawing with pencil beforehand. I prefer to let the drawings create themselves.
My work has been “published” on both friends and family, and I consider it to be the highest honor as an illustrator.
