Happy Halloween from “Sandy”

 

 

This is one of my girls who has gotten bitten. Originally she was going to be titled “Bittten” But I think “Sandy” if fitting. Living on the east coast I am fortunate enough that Sandy (the storm… not the Zombie) didn’t hit me too hard. To all my neighbors who got in her path my thoughts and well wishes go out to you and your families.

This illustration was just something quick and silly, but drawing zombies sure are fun.. I think I have been hanging out with Steve Becker and the FUBAR boys too much.

If you’re interested in a print of  “Sandy” please contact me (this includes tattoo designs) she will not be available in my store. If I get enough requests I will do a special limited release of her.

Have a very wild and wicked Halloween everyone!

“Lavender” for Alexis.

Hello everyone! Say hello to Lavender. 

© April Alane 2012

Lavender is a part of my girls collection. Commissioned by a lovely lady, Lavender is a design to compliment my Forgotten Crab-apples piece.

This design represents sorrow and a reflects a bit of sadness. Not only is she influenced by Celtic symbolism she is also strongly influenced by floriography, like most of my girls.

Both designs will be used for tattoos for Alexis that her tattoo artist will modify to his or her comfort.

This finished tattoos -hopefully- will be shown on Facebook

While I am on the topic of commissions and tattoo designs, Alexis has paid for both designs for her and her artist to use.

Finding the right tattoo artist is KEY to duplicating my work. While it would be nice to simply walk in to a shop and say “Hey you there! tattoo this on my body!” it doesn’t really work that way. Every tattoo artist has his or her own style so you should look for and artist that is fantastic with portraits.  Do some research, remember it is forever.

As I do appreciate when people use my illustrations for a tattoo it does raise the question of “stolen work”. I take it as a compliment always and forever first (truly I do!  “Can I get your artwork permanently on my body?” Uhh! yah! What an honor!) however in order for me to keep creating lovely designs for you all I also need to help keep the art alive.

If you would like to use a design or have some ideas of your own please feel free to contact me! I would love to hear  from you. And also take a look at my shop!

Thanks everyone and have a great night!

Permanent Illustration. Ode to Edgar Allan Poe

So I just had to share this with you all.

I just had a wonderful neighbor make my week with his newest investment.

I have helped him with his collection of Poe art with my recently created “Ode to Edgar” illustration for his 1/2 sleeve.

Check out his progress in this video!  There are a bunch of talented artists he is working with and I cant wait to see more.

Is there a bigger compliment then having one of your pieces  permanent on somones skin? For me, a tattoo lover, no.

Happy Halloween…

The Keepers

Yep. You heard me.

I finally finished my Halloween piece for you fine folks. Merry Christmas.

The Boyfriend got me a lot of new art fancies, mostly pencils, because I enjoy that medium most at the moment.

This piece is a part of the twins/ hair obsession collection.  thoughts?

I hope you enjoy.

Also I hope you enjoy your New Year.

Always,

April

p.s. if you get this tattooed on your body let me see it when you and your artist are done.
