“Like in other countries there is a mania for tattoos among criminals, but in Russia they give much more sense for those signs on their bodies. Each even smallest detail can be interpreted as a biography verse from the life of tattoo owner, both police and criminals can just look at the body of the tattooed person and tell all his deeds. They say these days there more freedom is allowed in decorating their bodies such way, but during the Soviet regime a person could earn big disgrace from his friends if he made a tattoo not according the rules.”

Last summer I discovered that cool book named Puff by William Wondriska. I love the illustrastions and typefaces (mostly Franklin Gothic) in it.

His art fascinates me. Check out his works:

“WK Interact was born in 1969 in Caen, France. He currently lives and works in New York. At a young age, WK was interested with the human body in motion, his paintings of figures frozen in a flight of movement reflects this infatuation. The artist’s technique of twisting an original drawing or photograph while it’s being photocopied, results in the monochromatic palette and streamlined moment-in-time appearance of his finished work. WK site-determines his placements by finding an appropriate location first, then his imagery is chosen specifically with a concern for encounters in an urban environment or “interactions” (as the artist indicates in his pseudonym). In the late 1990s his images began appearing on building facades in downtown Manhattan. He has exhibited in galleries (and on the streets) around the world, but has lived and worked in New York City for the past fifteen years. Over this time he has seen many changes—inside and outside of the art world—but his work remains inspired by New York, complimenting the constant stir of bodies and the perpetual motion of contemporary urban life in the fast-paced city, driven by intense passion and fear.”

figure drawing course

In this semester I have a course called figure drawing at the university. I realy like it, because our professor Zaremba let us work with any kind of  technique. I prefer watercolor. We try to draw the character of the movement of the model in 2-3 minutes.







These are some of my drawings from the course. I know they suck, but I am trying to improve them (:

It realy helps for drawing quick sketches.

When I was looking for a second tattoo idea, I discovered this canadian tattoo artist. Probably I will draw it by myself, but I like this guy. I like the character of the random lines and childish drawings, but they seem a little emo.
