Artist Spotlight: Jacob Pedersen
I'm a huge fan of the dark and gorgeous portfolio of Jacob Pedersen of Helsingborg, Sweden -- particularly, how he marries realism in his work often with a heavy graphic hand. [On his Crooked Moon Tattoo site, however, he notes that he also likes "doing Japanese and realistic tattoos" and is "always up to a new school project."]
Jacob will be soon be in our own Brooklyn backyard as a guest visiting Tattoo Culture in Williamsburg from July 8th to the 19th. He will also be one of the artists in attendance at the Empire State Tattoo Expo July 10-12.
