I’ve heard it said that old bushmen would hang Thylacine teeth outside their tents to ward off greater beasts. As the tigers disappeared new bushmen took to fashioning teeth from bone, timber and stone. The ritual has lived on long after the superstitions that created it have died. Campers will often carve tiger teeth from native Tasmanian timbers or rocks and string them together using broken boot laces or chord.
I recently had the absolute honour and privilege to draw up a tattoo design for one of the best blokes around. Duncan loves a tinnie, loves a footy and carries a stubby holder with him at all times for impromptu beers with the boys. I love him. It was inked by the talented Jordan Hooper and I think he did a ripper job.
This page is slowly being phased out. I’ll post things occasionally but until I pop my Tumblr site under the joshpringle.com domain name head over to http://joshpringle.tumblr.com for WAAAAY MORE UPDATES!
Hey! I’m in a real rush but here’s a few images I drew for some ledge-mate small pals I’m gonna meet this weekend.
If you or your small buddies like colouring in then feel free to print these off and colour ‘em in. Email your sweet finished colourful versions and I might show the world! email@example.com
Here’s the art I put in the Doin’ Drawings show at Scum Fighter Gallery!
My special lady friend just bought me a vintage tattoo flash book so I’m doing a quick morning flash sheet while I drink my tea.
