Carnage Tat by SpaciousInterior
Carnage Tat
Tattoo design is a big deal to me. I have ink and that's forever. SO when someone commissions me to design one for them, it's a BIG DEAL and I consider it an honor. Thank you for the opportunity and thank you for the trust.
Mouse Guard BCC 2015 yearbook process by SpaciousInterior
Mouse Guard BCC 2015 yearbook process
I get a lot of questions about my creative process.... so here it is.  Both steps of it.  LOL. 

Seriously.  As a painter, so much of what I do is in the color stages that I can really only break it down into two parts:
1.  Not done
2.  Done

I used to include "inks" as a stage but as my work progressed, I found more effective ways, not to skip that stage, but how to make it more economical in the washes.  I dunno... maybe I'll evolve again into something different, but it's like the old saying goes: "If you not growing, you're dying."

I think about dying a lot... but then I wouldn't know what I'll grow into next.
