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. In the future he intends to draw more, travel more, get more tattoos, drive a ’67 Chevy Impala and move down the coast with his girl and his dog.

James Murphy's Candy Coated Erotica

Erotica // Tuesday, October 02, 2012
I absolutely love the playful, candy-coated, dark erotic work of artist and illustrator James Murphy. He has some new provocative rainbow rendered imagery up on his site since I last checked, full of seductive skin, daggers, guts, cartoon babes and monsters- the usual for him.
