With CAVE IN, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, SCARS OF TOMORROW
I love this band and get excited every time I see something new that Jake Bannon designs.
This is my 1st installment of the "Stitched Girl" series. Just trying to figure out what I wanted to get on paper. Experimenting with backgrounds, text and color combos. I was kinda worried how they would be received...especially by my female friends. So far so good. I've had people offer to pose for the series after I told them what the blood and stitches mean. This piece was inspired by a few people I know. It originally started off as a sketch for the Tsunami Bomb tour poster (the character had clothes on then) but the client opted for skulls over girls.
When people open up to you...you hear some very private stories. I'm just putting my spin on those stories.
