Well to kick off the Ink Fest weekend Skin&Bone held an open house and exhibition.
There has really gone too long between our exhibits and Ink Fest was the perfect chance to drink wine and stroke our goatees while pretending to be cultured :-)
I just wanted to thank all of our family and friends who attended... what was originally planned to end at 22:00 ended up going until 3:00 AM
The exhibition was a collection of Alex Binnie's woodcut portraits which he has produced over the last several years and finally showed all 36 in London last September. Aside from the prints we also had books of the show of which there are still a couple left.
The portraits are all of known tattooists and are printed on Japanese paper using an old Victorian printing press.

The portraits are quite amazing as the shading is done using only lines of textures and patterns which are extremely intricate and in some cases the people arn't even recognizable until you step far enough away.
The exhibition will be on display until next month.
