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 !!

In this volume n.II : 
Colin Baker · Zac Scheibaum · Maarten Donders · Arik Roper · Alex Matus · Raul Cruz ·Jack Sabbat · Edu Cerro · Richey Beckett · Rose Whittaker · Nick Mckillip · Prilzor…

From Darkness to Light

from darkness to light
I love patches. Designing and collecting them it’s one of the funniest things I do for sure. Normally I come up with new ideas every time my last stock is over, but this time at Eclipse we decided it was a good move to produce this particular one again. From darkness to light is an old christian motto I came across with when I was diving in an Odd Fellows book… By the time we made the first run, this little piece of cloth made a lot of sense to Carlo, Rotor and me. It’s still powerful even now and that’s why it’s back on the game.
We know many of you lost the chance of getting one or more due to the small production. Now it’s available again through our webstore. It’s rougher than the previous edition, with no plastic backing for ironing…like fucking good patches should be. Not perfect.
So, be fast if you want some of them. Remember that we always include patches for the big orders and specially if you are interested in our original artwork.
Thanks again for supporting us.

Time O negative

“Per sobre del temps” and “No a tot / Todo mal” are now for sale through our online store at Eclipse. Originally painted for “Primer Ciclo” exhibition, those small original pieces are a rare example of how things go when I use acrylics, watercolours and ink…all mixed up…So if you like experiments, this is a good oportunity to have one…or both. Thank you very much again for your support to our artwork production at the studio, it means a lot.

Both pieces are framed in wood and glass

New prints and patches

 

Saved 1

Hard 1Later than expected but finally, both are here. “Saved by the Storm” and “Hard to explain” are now reproduced as a limited giclée edition. Only 8 copies of each one are available. Both printed on the finest Hahnemühle museum etching paper. Each copy is signed, embossed and numbered by me. I’m really happy with the result of these prints and the work done at impressionart Barcelona. Both editions are now more secure and hard to copy due to the Hahnemühle certificate of authenticity and hologram system   

certificateEach copy and it’s certificate of authenticity share a pair of twin holograms. And even the paper has it’s own security system. Please take a look to the previous link to fully understand what I’m trying to explain…It’s been a while since I was trying to improve the level of coolness of our certificates at Eclipse, and I think I’ve found the answer. I hope that if you are into a serious collecting dementia, you’ll appreciate that!

I have also designed a pair of new patches. “Lost Art” patch is based on two of my favourite songs from the Queens of the Stone Age. If you know…you know. “Time” patch is about missing something, missing someone…remember?… canine devotion time can’t erase…Oh shit, the Queens again…
patchesBoth are fully embroidered with merrowed border. No backing for ironing sorry! It’s easier to sew them on your jean or leather clothes this way, trust me. All pictures will drive you to my online store at Eclipse. All the info you need about the prints and patches is there too. So please, don’t doubt to share and visit!

It took long, but it was worthy to end up doing things like I really wanted to. Thank You very much for your support once again, hope You like them.

Before October comes

Weight of love, Storm warrior and the Hungry griffin are the three sides of the only coin I have left before October comes. And October 2018 changes a lot of things for me. Looks like future will never be the same again. I’ll be back very soon, as always. For consultations and appointments please, write me here : david@davidtejero.com or go directly to Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona. Thanks again for following my work.
