Little Black Heart

This little black, armored heart, has taken me ages to finish it and several atempts too. It’s not big but I really want it to work it out in a very special way as it is planned to be the cover of my new book of drawings. It will be on display till july 8th at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona as a part of our first anniversary exhibition if you have the chance and the will to see it live. You can already buy it if you are interested too, just click on the picture to know about all details. Special screenprints will be available soon.

I want to give thanks again to those that keep on supporting me in my tattoo and illustration days, the ones who really enjoy my hairy animals and specially to those who know about my personal symbols and pay a devilish attention to details.
Thanks for keeping an eye to my work.
Selfishness, Secrecy and Purpose.

Stone Deaf forever!

sd1

I’ve been included for the second time in the Stone Deaf zine curated by Alex Matus with the help of Brookes Reeder. Considering that I’m holding the second number in my hands, it’s a fucking success. I met Alex some years ago when she came to Barcelona to spend some days tattooing at Aloha Tattoos. I got a druidess tattoo from her (tribute to Type O Negative ha!) and we’ve been in touch since then. Alex tattoos and artwork are one of a kind, as her life too. This little piece of art combines the pictures taken by her at metal gigs with her iphone, with illustrations from a nice list of really talented people.

I contributed with my “saved by the storm” illustration and I’m really happy with the result. This little guy has flight many hours and I’m very proud that one of my best works is a part of this super fun compilation. You can feel this kind of work, by Alex, is done from the heart. Pure metal fan. So thanks again for having me in Alex !!

Monster II print and Eclipse T-shirts

After Florence and Brussels Tattoo Conventions my new T-shirts for Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona are ready to be sold online. They are Gildan Premium of 180 gr and are printed in discharge for an everlasting quality. Masters at Newtownlab Barcelona have done they work in an excellent way one more time! Stock is limited to 50 and some of them are already gone. Be fast if you want one!

I have also turned my last illustration into a little run of 10 giclée prints. Some of them were sold at the Brussels Tattoo Convention this weekend. The remaining ones are for sale now through Eclipse’s online store. Every one of them is signed, numbered and embossed by me. Once again, they have been printed at Impressionart. I want to give thanks for the attention and good vibes towards my work, it really means a lot. The original artwork is now a part of Sean Gamil’s private collection.

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:
patches
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.

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:

Thank you very much for your support and your opinions about my work. Keep an eye on Proyecto Eclipse for more news. This is my mail for further requests or comissions:

Eclipse I

eclipse-i
Eclipse I is my contribution to the joint pack we made in Proyecto Eclipse for our first exhibition last week. It was reproduced in a ten copies limited edition giclée series alongside the artwork of El Carlo and Rotor. This is the scan extracted directly from the original artwork. I’ve used a nib with ink wich is lately my best preference to work this kind of engraved pieces. The quality and opacity of black talens has no equal. Paper is the always high performance Saunders Waterford.
It’s actually framed and on sale for 300€ plus shipping costs. If you want to know more, just send me an e-mail here david@davidtejero.com . Thanks for keeping an eye. More close ups :
