I've been an artist for many years, model making, drawing, painting and a little sculpture oh and now art is my job. I'm a tattoo artist, which is a great outlet for my creativity and also a huge challenge as it's not always my own ideas that I have to make into final pieces.
Being on a forum like DeviantART is great because it puts me in touch with thousands of like-minded people from all over the world and that is the best way I've found to get inspiration. The itch to draw is always calling me and it's only life and its commitments that stop the flow. I wouldn't begrudge my time being taken by the necessities in life but I am certainly at my most contented when a new artistic creation is leaving my studio on a happy recipient.
I hope you all like my work and keep looking at my profile and gallery as I will be hunting through yours and sucking inspiration from them like a human sponge.
Cheers from Thom!
