    Win or lose, as a thank you to the people that vote for me, I'll be giving away a free tattoo to one lucky voter at the end of the competition! The winner will be picked at random from the list of voters I'll recieve from Rockstar towards the end of October. You have the option of voting more than once! Everyday you can vote again which will give you a better chance at winning a free tattoo by me!  The lucky winner of the free tattoo will have to arrange their own travel and hotel accommodations. 
     
    The winner will receive a free tattoo that can be completed start to finish in one day (approximately 5-6 hours of tattoo time). If you’re under the age of 18 and you win, you will receive one of my original 16"x20" oil paintings including a custom frame.
     
    I’m really looking forward to my tour stop in Calgary Canada in October!

    Zombie Caricatures: Exaggerations and Infections:

     

     

    The content of this book showcases the work of some of the best caricature artists in the world. Sean Gardner and Nick Mitchell have managed to take something that is super difficult and make it look effortless. It takes a different type of artist to be able to pull off a great caricature. Not only do you have to capture the likeness of each victim, but you also have to figure out what it is that makes them unique and stand out in their own way. Then, you have to figure out a way to bend those unique features as far as you can without losing the essence of what makes that individual who they are.

     

    Nick and Sean have not only managed to tweak the hell out of every person they draw and keep their likeness, but they do it while simultaneously throwing axes through their heads, lacerating their jugulars, and slinging blood all over the place. This book also includes some tutorials on how they do it! Hard Bound, 160 Full Color Pages 8.5 x 11 and published by Memento Publishing.
