The Multifaceted Work of NICK WHYBROW

June 10th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

I stumbled across Nick Whybrow’s Twitter account, and saw the link to NickWhybrow.com. When I got to the site, I saw work that I wasn’t familiar with. Easy enough, I have the wrong Nick Whybrow, right? Wrong, the Twitter account clearly states ‘I tattoo and am currently working at Jayne Doe.’

We all know plenty of tattoo artists are active in other art forms outside of tattooing, but it’s typically painting and drawing. The fact that it’s computer graphics and stop motion make it even cooler.

Enter the Moth: 36 Moth Balls

June 9th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

’36 Moth Balls’ may have be rhetorical since I already wrote ‘Enter the Moth’ but I feel like the Wu-Tang reference is strong.

Seriously though, what does a moth have to do with the Wu-Tang? Actually, nothing but it seems to work.

Bird Book Peeking

Very interesting piece. I love the smoke between the bird and the book. It’s interesting the two elements are such different styles too.

Under the Skin with Myke Chambers

June 9th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

Years ago, one of the first interviews I did was with Myke Chambers. Since then, I’m proud to say I’ve become friends with Myke and I’ve watched his career take off. Throughout that time, Myke’s hard work, determination, and humbleness hasn’t changed one bit.

Myke’s story is truly an inspirational one. If you never had, I highly suggest you reading the Tattoo Snob interview and watching the video to learn more about Myke.
