Drawing!

Painting! Click to enlarge!

Henrik Gallon: I Just finished this painting/drawing this thing and I am really pleased with it. So I’m thinking I’d really like to tattoo it as well. It’s a perfect fit for ‘ribs down the leg’ or ‘one side of back down the leg’ (30 cm x 85 cm, basically 4 A4 papers taped the longside to eachother). Any takers, hit me on my mail henrikgallon <at>gmail<dot>com  or on my personal facebookpage (Henrik Gallon). Posting this request on different pages online so be quick about it. First one gets it :)!

Official Poster ( I did the artwork) for the Great British Tattoo Show.

I just finished the artwork for this poster, and there will be t-shirts as well featuring this image I think. Works really well with the text as well (didn’t add that, not my strong side, text layout. Usually ends up looking like Microsoft Word Art ;)) . Fun, Fun.
I’ll add my original below for those interested.

Updating The Blog:

I had a conversation with my customer today about the frequenzy of updating the blog to keep it interesting, a subject I talked about in earlier posts. She thought that twice a week was a good number, and even if I could post twice a week I get the feeling the post might get a bit bland. But then again, not sure the posts right now are that informed andthought-through anyways. What do you reader/watchers think?

Oh, WordPress added a statistic that shows from where in the world the blog is viewed; quite suprising :).

Some new paintings /tattoo flash:

Made some new paintings for the shop, and if there’s any takers I can tattoo them as well. Bought this really nice aquarelle-paper and thought I’d do tons of good paintings. So far I’ve done some shitty paintings and these two which I’m quite pleased with :). Not as easy as it seems.

Soon hanging at Gallon Tattoo 🙂

As all paintings they look so much better when framed, which they are now. But hard to photo a framed picture so you get to see them like this.

And Tattoo:

The first sitting on Rakel’s arm. Going to be a killer, I think.

In the latest post I said I was thinking about something cool to put in the window. Well, I found a mannequin online and bought it. It now stands in the back of the shop and manage to scare the shit out of me everyday.

Mannequin at Gallon Tattoo

So, why buy a mannequin? Well, to paint tattoos on and have wearing not so much clothes to show of said tattoos. Will end up superbly cool or very white trash… good thing my girlfriend works with selling clothes and might dress the doll in a fashionable fashion :).

Also got two extra arms and manage to mix all the four arm so I did some test of putting a tattoo-transfer on one of the arms that actually fits the doll, messing it up.

And then did real designs on one of the extras.

Well, this project will be continued, with some alteration. The messed up arm will be full colour so that’ll fix it. The one I  started the real design on will be finished and attached to the doll (with minor surgery if necessary :)).

And the extras will point towards different sights important to the customers (that’s the location of the toilet).

Astronauter

Jag har en kund, Niclas, som skall göra en astronaut. Nedan ser man då tre av skisserna som gjorts. Det är ju ganska stor skillnad mellan alla , vilket naturligtvis kan leda till funderingar på om jag egentligen förstår vad kunder säger till mig att de vill ha. Men oroa er inte, det gör jag, men det jag ritar kan vara något annat. Inte på grund av att jag vill ändra på kundens grundidé utan mest för att de inspirerar mig, och ger små bilder i huvudet som vill bli ritade (helst på tidsbekostnad av något jag tycker är tråkigt att göra, som tex städa undan ritprylar som täcker  vårt tänkta  ”matbord”). Jag är fullt medveten, och försöker informera kunden så tydligt jag kan, att deras grundidé är den som kommer bli till tatuering… men de andra är ju också väldigt roliga att göra.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

En slags retro-scifi astronauter, med en tanke på flygande dinosaurier i bakgrunden. Som en illustration till idén ” vi åkte till rymden men kom till jorden 200000 years BC!!!”, som jag inbillar mig var populär i tidiga sci-fi filmer :).

 

Kaboom; sitter alltid och funderar på hur man ska rita tuffa serietidningsstilistiska explosioner, så testade detta här. En ”warm-up”-bild innan man börjar rita på riktigt kan man säga… dvs helt irrelevant tidsfördriv som totalt fuckar upp hela ens planering, med kommande ritjobb.

Och till sist, den som vi pratat om som tatuering:

Kommer kanske lägga upp Niclas färdiga tatuering här under senare när den är klar. Eller i en egen post med länk till denna post… beslut, beslut.

Rita!

Tänkte försöka uppdatera bloggen lite oftare (igen). Snurrade igenom lite olika kollageansikten som olika konstnärer gjort och tänkte att nåt sånt skulle vara kul att rita, och hade lite tid för att rita för skojs skull (vilken fantastisk kombination).
