Done with a wacom,a mac,PSE 8,and me. originally I did the heads in black watercoulor, graphite,and ink that set the tone for this dark digital painting .
                  facts
This peice was inspired by a 1927 photo by Claude Meacham
showing the heads of four outlaws posted on a billboard in Nanking China .
Along with the heads were poster adds for ATLAS British American Tobacco Co LTD and Pirate brand smokes. 
This was the old school way of saying we caught that son of a B!(/&#-/. !!
The British would mount the heads on spicked fences.
The romens would crucifie their criminals and outlaws,
In the old west America ,hanging was the method thay choose .and
the French would use the gullotine.
Other ways we’ve ridden ourselves of these outlaws has been stoning,flogging,drawning,burning,
On the rack, leathal injection, and
Electrocution just to name afew.
                fictional charictor  
A Japanese bounty hunter/ exicutioner with a blood lust,wearing a billboard styled banner with the heads of his latest conquests pinned to it. A walking add ,that puts fear in the harts of he who dears to challange him, and every man who’s head has a price .
    His name is 
SHINTO :  ASSASSIN ELITE !   BLADE FOR HIRE !
   

I was born South West of London, moved to the U.S. as a teen now living in New Haven, Connecticut. I‘ve always had an interest for art even as a child, but never had the opportunity for any formal or traditional training. So I taught myself to use different mediums. I left my passion for many years and two years ago I begin to draw and illustrate. This gallery is a show case of my art over the last three years .
