introducing myself: Tom Strom

General art-related discussion.

Postby tomstrom on Tue Nov 11, 2008 1:11 am

Hey All, I just joined up here so I figure I'd better introduce my self. I'm an artist/tattoo artist working in Minneapolis. I've been working as a tattoo artist for thirteen years. I've been painting for about four years with no formal art training. I pretty much find a creative way to do whatever it is that I'm doing at`the moment. I enjoy painting in watercolor, acrylic, and oil, and have started sculpting as well. That's it I guess. Take a look at what I do and let me know what you think. I'm still new with this so I apologize for my lack of computer skills. Take care.

Tom Strom


Also, I have each of these prints in editions of 100, message me for availability. Thanks.

I got that last one from Ben/posterminion a little while back... pretty impressive in person. Still not sure how it sits in my own art appreciation, but definitely some quality stuff there.

Great words won't cover ugly actions; good frames won't save bad paintings...
