I've always enjoyed Bob Tyrrell's work. Bob showed up on the tattoo scene a couple decades back and immediately gained notice for his smooth, original approach to black and grey realism. He has a talent for translating iconic images into strong, clearly readable realistic tattoos with a unique balance of graphic strength and subtle realism. The last time we stocked a DVD from Bob we couldn't hold onto it; his reputation precedes him as not only an outstanding tattoo talent but just a likable person in general. This combination makes his tutorials not only highly informative but enjoyable and entertaining at the same time.
So we are psyched to announce that we've got his latest DVD in stock: Hair Of The Dog explores animal portraiture using Bob's technique, and is loaded with artistic and technical wisdom that is sure to be useful for tattoo artists of all levels of experience. Pet portraiture is a big market, and this tutorial not only goes into the animal subject in detail but contains many great nuggets that could be applied to almost any artistic style. If our experience tells us anything, you may only have a couple days before they are sold out; drop by the store now to read more!
I also wanted to mention that we just got interviewed by Jake's Fireside Podcast and look forward to seeing several segments posted in coming weeks. here's the review that they posted about Reinventing The Tattoo, which as many of you know is in its second year as an electronic educational package with new material being added regularly. I am about to add three new detailed Photoshop tutorials this month, about an hour each, which will be available free to all members.
