Time Machine II prints and new patches

TMII wp 3

Finally here! Time Machine II print is available through Proyecto Eclipse webstore. It’s been my first time working with this new version of the old known museum etching paper by Hahnemühle. As you can see in the pictures, the edge is deckled, just like it was a handmade watercolour paper. This adds a nice, less cold touch to this limited edition of 8 copies. All of them are signed, numbered and embossed by me. They come with a certificate of authenticity and they have been masterfully printed at Impressionart once again.  All the technical info about the print is in the shop.

You’ll see I have also designed some new patches and I’m very happy with the result! The moon and star patch, named as Cycle patches, are only available together. The big one, is a twisted reinterpretation of Milton’s cosmology diagram from his classic poem Paradise Lost. The diagram appeared for the first time in Homer Sprague’s 1883 edition, nearly after 200 years of the first publication…and it’s amazing. My first idea was to replicate the diagram as it was:
Realm-of-Chaos-and-Night
But! despite it is an amazing picture and idea, it would be a poor challenge to do it that way. So I started to think and later on I found out my own concepts to make this patch. By switching some words and using the death representation as a centre, my Milton’s inspired patch came up. Last part of the process was doing a good research into some books of military insignia from the second world war and Vietnam too. I really love that stuff you know… I have also had the support and advice from El Carlo and Rotor. Once again their expertise in this field solved many problems before they even appeared. Take a look:

Don’t doubt to get your patch as soon as you can. Once they are gone, it’s almost sure they’ll never be back. Limited editions help us to keep our minds creative but they run out fast. We also like to have new stuff as often as we can at Eclipse.

Thanks again for keeping an eye into my work. All the info about the print and patches is available in the online store. Worldwide shipping is also available, as always.

Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona

IMG_4682
Proyecto Eclipse sigue su camino y da un paso más. A Carlo, Rotor y a mí nos alegra enormemente anunciar que vamos a montar un estudio de tatuajes en nuestra ciudad. Recientemente y después de una larga búsqueda hemos encontrado un local en el barrio de Gracia que nos parece increíble para trabajar todos juntos. Nos esperan unos meses de esfuerzo y calor para tenerlo a punto en otoño pero sabemos que valdrá la pena.

Después de trabajar en Nahkoé, Aloha y en mi estudio privado junto a Carlo, tengo unas ganas enormes de crear un espacio propio junto a mis socios y amigos. Se cumplen once años en 2017 desde que empecé a tatuar y siento que parte del proceso de seguir adelante en Barcelona pasaba por tomar esta decisión. Gracias a Proyecto Eclipse y un montón de horas de trabajo detrás, ¡parece ser que será posible!

Queremos dar las gracias a todos los que han seguido este proceso durante los últimos meses, especialmente a nuestros amigos y família. A partir de ahora queremos sumar a todo aquel que quiera a esta experencia de construir este nuevo espacio. Por mi parte mantendré el blog actualizado lo máximo posible y a través del instagram de Eclipse podréis también ver todas las noticias. ¡Esperemos no aburrir!

¡Gracias de nuevo y hasta pronto!

Proyecto Eclipse is moving forward. Carlo, Rotor and I are extremely happy to announce the opening of our own tattoo studio in Barcelona. After a long research we’ve come up with a nice place in the neighbourhood of Gracia that seems incredible to work all together. We expect a lot of heat and work in the next months but we are sure it’s going to be worthy. 

After working at Nahkoé, Aloha and my own private studio alongside Carlo, I deeply wanted to create a common space with my friends and partners. It’s eleven years now since I started tattooing and this is definetely a great call to make to keep on going in Barcelona. Thanks to Proyecto Eclipse and a thousand working hours this might come to an end!

We want to give thanks to everyone who has followed this process during the last months, our friends and family. From now on, everyone who’s interested in the process of building this new space is more than welcome. This blog will keep updated as usual and Eclipse’s instagram will display all the news. We hope not to bore You!

Thanks again and see you soon! 

Time Machine II

tm II 5
Finally, here it is! My second time machine is finished. This time the size was important in order to get faster results so I changed my big working sheets for a Din A3 one. I must say it’s been a pain in the ass for the amount of detail… but in a matter of seven days everything was done.
This little traveller will see the light in a limited giclée print edition very soon because I’m happier with the result than I was with the first time machine. I’m trying to make some evolution with every piece and it’s getting really fun so, I guess somehow this can become a series one day. Who knows! Some pictures of the process and details:

Tattoos from the book!

Tengo un sketchbook con algunos diseños de temáticas que me parecen realmente divertidas y estimulantes para tatuar. Este es el último que he tenido la oportunidad de realizar y estoy muy contento con el resultado. ¡Gracias Jaume por confiar en mí una vez más!
Todos los diseños son de un tamaño pequeño o medio, fáciles de tatuar en una sola sesión y totalmente en negro. Como además son ideas propias y a veces algo bizarras, los precios que cobro por estas sesiones pueden ser algo diferentes a lo habitual. No dudéis en preguntarme por mail david@davidtejero.com y quedamos para echarles un ojo a todos los que aún quedan disponibles. Os dejo aquí abajo una recopilación de algunos de los mejores que he tatuado con el mismo sistema.
