TATTOO ARTIST Portfolio on hand ART STUFF Group show exhibition 2006 University Museum of Fine arts in Louisiana I have a strong 3 years of graphic design under my belt, and 6 yrs of tattooing Im currently working with a guy thats starting a clothing line called "christopher wayne" I've designed some shirts for obey giant, and a few skateboard companies (hurley, element). I was a member of "team left" in which we created the logo for the "marquis de lafayette" commemorating 250 yrs. It should be used by lafayette's consolidated government in this year, we created it in 2005 I've entered at least 100 poster compititions, and for some reason I could only place 2nd in 10 of them. I've created birth announcements for buttercup kids which they didn't use, it hurt my feelings. I've designed a cover and a spread for "Flash Tattoo Magazine" which they did use, I was proud within 3 years, I've done a small share, and I am creative, able to make deadlines and work on a team. I've did more graphic design work for clients then I did for my classes when I was in school. I guess it was word of mouth But I can put some of my best work in a porfolio and send it out to you if your interested. Relevant Work History (Concurrent with Education) 2002-pres.
