Hi, Im Alex.
Im an illustrator and tattooer based in Manchester, UK.
I specialise in hand drawn illustration for mostly print, often using traditional subject matters and taking inspiration from tattooing, old advertisements, comics and prints, the past and the sea.
My clients have included Mogwai, Sunset Sons, Finisterre, Skinners Brewery, The Bridgewater Hall, Ben Folds Five and The Skinny Magazine.
I tattoo from Bravest Kids Tattoo, Bury. My tattoo work is traditional, blackwork and illustrative/ dot work.
I have had solo exhibition shows at Richard Goodall Gallery, Night and Day Cafe and Odd Bar in Manchester and Bold Street Coffee, Liverpool.
My work has also features as part of group shows at Cube Gallery, The Cornerhouse, A Place Called Common and Islington Mill in Manchester as well as shows in Liverpool and London.
I have done workshops at Kingsway High School for the last 3 years with an emphasis on lino printing as well as mono print, screen printing and modern practice. I have also been invited to be part of a talk at Salford University about life after leaving university and working freelance.
