The Works of Rik Lee

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
A couple new tattooed renderings from Rik Lee, an artist that lives and draws in Melbourne, Australia. He works with grey lead pencils, watercolours and his computer creating beautiful illustrations with tattoo undertones. When he’s not drawing Rik tries not to fall off his skateboard and enjoys talking in detail about the weather.

Bryn Perrot: Carved Wood Tattoo Flash

Tattoo // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
“My mind does not wander when I carve; I make for purpose, not from artistic representation. I have focus when I work, which is a relief from my otherwise scattered thoughts. Carving feels like real work: something is being physically accomplished. Each cut made gets me closer to the next image within the larger scene. I simply like making a good image, a strong image. I started getting tattooed seven years ago and started working in a tattoo shop four years ago....
