To Death zine, Peter Steele’s life and art tribute by Branca studio and many fans, is finally in my hands. I have 4 copies available for sale through eclipse’s online store. I’m really happy to see the final result! Take a look…
Be fast if you want one of them. Branca studio and other artists had gone out in a matter of hours! Thank you very much again. To Death!
This illustration is my contribution to another upcoming stone deaf zine by Alex Matus. As the situation is not easy in the States neather, I hope the project comes to an end this year! Alex, stay safe! It was done on 2019, during several weeks of lazy work! The reason I’m posting this is because I’ve decided to sell the original artwork through eclipse’s online store.
The illustration measures are 40 x 50 cm and it’s done with ink on watercolour paper. There’s a lot of free space around the figure in order to help with the framing. As usual, shipping is available worldwide and it comes with some extras.
Thank you very much for your support during these months. Take care.
April 14th 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of Peter Steele’s death. Exactly five years ago, I had the intention alongside Pol from Branca Studio, to celebrate the anniversary by putting up a show of local bands in Barcelona playing songs from Carnivore and Type O Negative. In the end, and due to the lack of time and the available bands at the moment, the little celebration never came up! It was sad but the idea always remained there…somewhere in our folder of good intentions ! Luckily for me, as a TON fan and personal follower of Peter’s misinterpretation of life achievements and failures, Pol was there once again to remind me we should do something. After the crazy success of Sabbath’s zine by Branca Studio, the idea of creating another one with Peter Steele as the main subject was really clear. At that point, I should give all the credit and recognition to Pol and Marta, Branca Studio, who make that zine a reality. I was a little bit stressed in the weeks before the quarantine and not able to think much about this kind of special projects. So one more time, as a Peter Steele’s fan, thanks Branca Studio for making this little tribute happen. You are the best and I feel really proud to be a part in it.
“Alpha and Omega” is the title of my digital collage and it was done during the first week of march. I wanted to try something different this time, working without pen and paper…hopefully without fucking up any copyright in the process. I really wish it’s going to be a good contribution to the list of people involved and a nice tribute to the green man. As Pol said to all of us, just have fun doing it! And I did! I’m sure there will be a lot of torment, alcohol, drugs and big cocks in those pages. I also think that is important to remember Peter as an artist using his deep, hard and black sense of humour. For me was never only about his talent, but also about his charisma. It was also a matter of size of course! But as few others, he was unique. A true 90’s sex icon and stage beast. You won’t find it twice.
The zine contains the work of many fans. Illustrators, tattooers, designers, photographers and writers have contributed with forty colour pages of drawings, paintings, collage, texts and poems. All of them giving a personal view on Peter’s legend. This is also a non profit project. All benefits are dedicated to pay the printing and the shipping costs.
Online selling is available now through Branca’s store. Only 30 copies are up for sale and shipping will start once the quarantine is over in Catalunya. Sale period ends on may 14th! Be fast if you want one. Thanks again for your support during this strange time of our lives. Enjoy Pete’s music and interviews, stay electrocute. Follow Branca Studio’s work. Be there for when it’s time to see eachother again.
So! This is the first 2020 tattoo project. Done in two sittings on Javier who asked for a big rooster and put all the trust in the view I wanted to get for it. In the pictures, lines are healed and shading is fresh. I’m always up for this kind of extended bird tattoos that can go along with the anatomy in a better and more profitable way.
Don’t doubt to get in touch if you have in mind to get a tattoo like that, I always enjoy to work on this projects and I’m looking forward to do more of them in 2020. Arms, legs, frontpieces and backpieces too. It’s time to grow in size!
Thanks again for keeping an eye on my work.
These are some of the tattoos I’ve done in my recent visits to London, Dortmund and Brussels. It’s always a pleasure to travel around and be able to tattoo interesting ideas. Thanks again to all my customers abroad. The pictures below are from one of my favoruite healed pieces this year, on Tobe from Dortmund.
My next stop takes me to Lyon, France. I’ll be tattooing at Hello Darkness Tattoo. I hope I’ll be able to design and tattoo some good stuff too! So please, don’t doubt to write me if you want to get tattooed there. I’ll bring my black book of designs with me as usual.
I’m really happy to announce that I’ll be working in France for the first time. During the days 12-13-14 I’ll visit Hello Darkness Tattoo in Lyon. I’m glad to work on custom ideas and also to do my own prepared designs. Please, if you want to get tattooed, just write me an email.
Advent T-shirt is finally printed. Once again it has been done down at Newtownlab headquarters in Barcelona. When it comes to limited, handmade printed editions for your clothes, they are undoubtfully on the top. The design is based on an old imperial prussian coat of arms. I just added some of my favourite touches. This T-shirt will be for sale for the first time at the Brussels Tattoo Convention 2019. Afterwards it will be available online too. Don’t doubt to take a look to our shop.
I’ll bring with me as many T-shirts as possible to the convention, but also my books, patches and prints. As you may know, I work on a limited edition basis so…once they are gone, they are gone. Don’t be late at the convention if you want any of these things.
Thank you very much again! See you in Brussels.
