Well, well, well here we are again. Posting up some new work, which has come off a strange yet interesting change of direction in Illustration. I've kind of mixed up the whole body art idea and gone down the route of geometrical patterns which are the kind of thing that wouldn't work at a tattoo so its a bit contradictory in a weird way. Then off that I've been creating kaleidoscope patterns out of some photos I've taken which are really interesting and fun to make, hope you like . . .

Yes, those of a weak disposition should look away now or a shock induced heart attack may occur, I'm putting up work ! and its not digital . . . well kinda it started life as a 'traditional' drawing but the coloured version I created/edited using the ole' Photoshop. I'm definitely stuck on the whole Day of the Dead and tattoo thing at the mo and I'm really loving it, the ideas are most certainly flowing with this one plus I get to do the age old childhood practice of drawing on yourself and its for art ! haha ! awesome . . .

No, I'm not going to talk about the stock exchange cos I'm don't really know that much about it but I'm pretty sure it's not going all that well at the moment, but anyway I digress, no the original reason for the post was to say that I've opened up a online shop to start selling some of the stuff that I have created with hope to getting my work more widespread plus making some money off it, which is basically what we all want to do, isn't it . . .

Well here's the link to my store, enjoy:

. . . The New Obsession

Posted by Laurence Cox | Posted in | Posted on Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Yes you heard right i now have a new obsession, it hasn't really replaced any old obsession more it has been added to the (very) long list of existing obsessions. That new obsession is . . . drum roll please . . . El Día de los Muertos or in English, The Day of the Dead. Which is a Mexican holiday/celebration from the 31st October to the 2nd November. the basic idea is that it is a time when people celebrate the memory of loved ones that have passed away, and during this time alters are set up for dead family and friend with sugar skull, marigolds and favorite foods and drinks of the deceased. I personally think this is a truly beautiful celebration and kinda wish we did something here in England but sadly we don't, but it gives another reason to heed the call of my Hispanic side. My artistic interest in this celebration mainly revolves around the "sugar skulls" which are a type of sweet made at the time. In perticular the decoration of the skulls which is shown in a lot of art and has somehow worked its way into tattoo art in perticular, and I have also got quite interested in the "face-painting" which is depicted quite regularly in tattoos as well as at the time of the celebration. Hopefully this will lead somewhere very interesting, if not it will of been one hell of a journey all the same . . .
