In these hands-on workshops being held at Tattoo The Lou Fest in St.Louis, Missouri & The Hell City Tattoo Fest in Columbus, Ohio- Guy goes into detail about making the most of the human form in composing powerful flowing abstract designs to fit the body in a flattering way. He supports these fundamental compositional rules with suggestions for creating lighting, depth and texture while exploring the limitless graphic language of abstract biomechanical design. Following his presentation the class will get an assignment to draw in a human anatomical template while he walks around the class, comments and gives advice toward making the most of each of the students’ compositions with emphasis on flow, fit, contrast and overall visual impact. Approximately 2 hours, $200.
This past week Guy finished one of the more substantial paintings that he’s had on the easel recently. “Lantern Cave” dives deep into the subjects that he enjoys most as an artist: Depth, texture and luminosity, with an emphasis on a kind of organic womb-like warmth to dispel the last of the winter chill. We are offering high quality archival signed prints on canvas of this image, including a strictly limited framed edition (we have only 6 of them framed). Prints are 15x30” plus a 1” colored border for mounting purposes. The framed edition is approx. 17x32x1.5” in a museum quality handmade wooden frame, lightweight with a fingerprint resistant texture, ready to hang in your art collection or at your tattoo workstation. This one is perfect for giving your tattoo clients a fun, imaginative space to fall into while sitting there getting needled. This is Guy’s most current work; drop by hyperspacestudios.com/prints for more information.
