Convention Schedule 2012








I'll be working all the shows listed above in 2012. I'll be updating this blog post as more are confirmed. If you are interested in getting tattooed by me at a convention, please send an email to evilfromtheneedle@hotmail.com with the following info :

1.) The convention you'd like to get tattooed at. If you have a preference, please state which day of the show you'd like to be booked for.

2.) A brief description of what you would like to get. Subject matter/colour or black & grey etc.

3.) Where you'd like the tattoo to go - Unfortunately I will not be tattooing rib, stomach or chest areas. I wont be bringing a bench with me and for the sake of your tattoo, I would rather work on these areas in a shop environment.

4.) How big you'd like the tattoo to be.

5.) Anything else you think I might like to know. FACTS ARE FUN.

As well as hawking out my tat zappin' wares, I'll also have t shirts/prints/stickers and original artwork on sale. Possibly even some Danny Peanut music/merchandise for those of a noisy persuasion.

So yes, all inquiries to evilfromtheneedle@hotmail.com

See you spoon x

FREEHAND FRIDAYS.

New thing.




Every now and then I will be coming into tattoo on what is usually my day off - Friday. By appointment.

What I'll be doing specifically on these days is doing some super full-on bonkers freehand tattoos for the price of the shops minimum charge - 50 beans. Crazy right? But here's the catch - you don't really know what you're gonna get until the drawing part is done. It might be a space beaver! Or a dribbling hobo! Or a peanut on fire! Or even just a big wonky skull. EXCITING HUH!!!??!

I'll only be booking a couple of these a day, so we'll be able to take time with both the drawing and tattooing.

So, if you like the kind of thing that I do and would like to get yourself a tattoo worth £££'s for next to nothing then get in touch with the shop HERE to find out when the next Freehand Friday is being booked for.

Bye peeps!

Update of the not so up-to-date.

Hello everyone out there on the world wide web! Hopefully none of you have been wrapped up and eaten by the world wide SPIDER. Who is in charge of the web. Obviously.

Anyways, it's been a while (AGAIN), so I thought I'd do a lil update.


Here's a thing I made a while back that I really enjoyed doing. Cut paper collage. Bit of an experiment that I think kinda worked out ok. Starting on a few, more large-scale pieces using similar technique, which; fingers crossed, will turn out even better.


Obligatory kung-fu sheep.


Really into the idea of doing a panther-y cat head and dagger. Bit retro for me I know huh? But yeah, I dig it.

Also! There are a few new tracks up on the Danny Peanut Soundcloud page, including a remix of a song by a friend of mine Helen 'Hazlitt' White.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

To lessen the hideous torment of travelling from A to B, I like to draw. Especially on plane journeys. As bladed weapons are no longer permitted when travelling by air like they were in the good-ol'-days (pansies), a sharpened pencil, being at present an acceptable carry-on item; doubles up as a rather handy skewer for puncturing the throat of that kid behind me that keeps kicking my seat.

Next flight I take I think I'm going to take one of those giant wacky pencils and just carve it into a fucking halberd or something. STOW YOUR FUCKING TRAY-TABLE MORON! *slashystabbystabstab*

So, in the spirit of evisceration, here's some squiggles I done did.


Bat-monster.


Bones.


Clowny Clown-Clown.


Traditional Swallow.


Pig-Bat-Crab guy with Mr Cloud-Eating Rodent.


Squirrel wearing happy stork, Abominable Sno-cone.


More bones.


Henry.


Flying crab-claw Panda smiles, for you.


If you would like one of these or something similar as a tattoo, please get in touch. Is my thing, y'know.

Till next time!

Make stuff don't break stuff.

So I've not been too active recently in the blogosphere, but that's the thing, if I'm not on the internet blabbering about doing this and that, it's because I am actually off doing the aforementioned 'this' a probably a whole bunch of 'that' too. So apologies to the peeps that may have been a-swinging by to check what's been a-happening recently.

Here's some evidence so y'all can see I've not been slacking :D

Been working on my sculpting recently. Working on something at the moment that I'm hoping to take a mould of and make a run of resin or vinyl figures. So look out for updates on that. In the meantime have a gander at the monster heads I made.


Super Sculpy, baked, then painted with Montana paint.

Also been getting back into watercolour painting a lil' bit. Heres a peak at a piece I have done for the Evil From the Needle 25th anniversary shindig. I call it 'Lazer Leopard Blasts Through the Forcefield'.


Watercolour on paper, A3.

Sculpture, painting! All this as well as the usually drawing and tattooing? I know what you're thinking "Is this guy some kind of MACHINE?" and the answer is YES! I am. Well, part man, part machine. Underneath, I'm a hyper-alloy combat chassis, microprocessor-controlled. Fully armored; very tough. But outside, I'm living human tissue: flesh, skin, hair, blood.

No wait, that's not me. That's the Terminator.

Always getting those two mixed up.

Anyway. Here's some more pictures because...well just because.


Cthulu takes the bus. Thanks Massimiliano for sitting like a champ and having the rad idea in the first place.


Sketchbook page.

Also Danny Peanut has tracks featuring on a few compilations that are out now/soon. The collaborative track with Whitethroat - 'Langstrom's Lament', for Feral Fang Media's Batman Villain compilation and 'Raptor>Rapture' on Arrendersi Morte's 'Spontaneous Human Combustion Volume One'. Check out the DP Facebook page for more info HERE.

Monkey Abuse

The EVIL T shirts have finally arrived! 8-colour screenprint on a cotton shirt softer than a pillow made of sandblasted babies ass-cheeks.

Pools of Liver.

In the wake of the success of the Edinburgh convention, (thanks to everyone that got tattooed, tried to get tattooed, took stickers and business cards or said nice things about my work)I will (along with fellow Evil From the Needle tat-zapper Antony Dickinson) be attending this years 4th Annual Liverpool International Tattoo Convention! This year the convention is being held at the Liverpool Adelphi Hotel over the weekend of the 14th/15th of May and is shaping up to be a gay old time. In a Flintstones theme song sense, not a homosexual sense. Although Fred and Barney did seem to spend a lot more time with each other than with their wives...

ANYWAYS, as of RIGHT NOW I am accepting pre-bookings for the show! Otherwise I will be doing walk-ups, but only pieces from specially prepared flash sheets. These sheets will also include a couple of the designs from the Edinburgh flash that didn't get done, so if you missed out in Scotland, Liverpool is your chance to get that tat of the retarded kitten covered in piss or the dribbling,buck-toothed hobo.

New designs include:

Screaming electrocution victims! Baboons! Household objects made of MEAT!

...and other things that make you IMMORTAL* if you get them tattooed on you.

As always interested peeps can contact me via da BLOG, or by da EMAILZ - fortressofassassins at live dot com or by FRIDGE MAGNET ALPHABET.

Peas!




*Immortality is guaranteed up to point of death.

Monkey Magic!

Here's a sneaky peak at my new T shirt design that is in the works right now. Well, less of a sneaky peak and more full frontal nudity. The design is my interpretation of the old 'hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil' monkeys. Except in my version the poor monkey is having his ability to hear, see and speak abused by the little red fellow there with the horns. Evil, as well as being a fantastic life-choice, is also a reference to where I work in 'Evil From the Needle'.

Shirts will be available in white through a range of sizes from 'weasely crack head' to 'jabba and all the hutts'.


Anyone wishing to be kept in the loop as to when these things are going to become available can register their interest by mailing fortressofassassins at live dot com or contacting me on my face.

Book or on this here blog right here that you are seeing the sights of which I am showing you.

Shirts will be £20 and available from the shop very soon. I'll also take animal skulls and japanese monster toys in payment.

Scotland the Brave.

So another convention is happening at which i shall be pimping my hideous wares. On the 26th and 27th of March, the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh will be playing host to the first annual Scottish Tattoo Convention, where Scots will flock from miles around to rejoice in the wonders of tattooing and, I am led to believe; to exchange their corn. I'm not too bothered about the tattoo stuff but am VERY EXCITED with becoming fully aware of how and why my Hebridian brethren converge upon Edinburgh to loose themselves of grain and, in what manner of wonderment they are reciprocated.

After solving the mysteries of the corn, I am sure I will wish to celebrate by putting some wicked rad tat zaps on peeps. If you are a peep and would like to get one of these things what I do, then get in touch either via this blog or by sending magic letters to - fortressofassassins at live.com

printy printy print prints.

This will be the first in a set of three A3 prints I will be making. Each print will be limited to a number of 20 and will be hand numbered and signed by yours truly (me). The one pictured here is titled 'Tex Encounters the Spectre of Death At the Edge Of Locust Woods'.




They'll be going for £20 each, or £50 for the set.

Just to make things a little more personal, I will, if you like, customise the prints at no extra charge! This customisation may, amongst other things, include me using glitter, markers, paint and various fluids squeezed from small mammals to decorate in whatever fashion I deem suitably AWESOME. 

I will be posting the other two prints in the series over the next day or so. 

Interested parties please get in touch via this blog or alternatively by sending an email to - fortressofassassins at live dot com.

Peas.

aguilera.

This painting is a long overdue watercolour piece for a swap with Cardiff's finest, Ash Davies. I've had a fair few false starts on this one as I really don't think my painting skills are anywhere near on par with his. Sorry dude, I gave it my best shot.  Here's what you're getting...
