RB Tattoo Design Challenge

Fancy flexing your design and illustration muscles? Want to win some awesome prizes? Then dig out your finest drawing implements as we’ve got just the challenge for you.
 

We’d like you to create a tattoo design so impressive, even your dear Mother will temporarily put aside her fear of you getting inked and jeopardizing your chances of getting a ‘proper job’ one day.

There are cash prizes, temporary tattoos, tees and hoodies up for grabs so don’t dilly dally. Warm up a vat of coffee/gin/absinthe, dust off your art supplies, switch your phone off and get down to business. You’ve got approximately two weeks left to get your designs out of your brains and onto paper (then onto the interwebs).

Find out more and submit your entries here.

Featured Artist: uberkraaft


The Lake

If there’€™s one thing an artist must appreciate, it’s the experience of picturing something in the mind’s eye, then turning it into a reality. In his Redbubble profile, uberkraaft (Matt Williams) explains, ‘€˜… I make things I really want to see’€™. The ability to do so with a good deal of finesse and attention to detail brings us our next feature artist.

Matt completed a degree in sculpture at the University of Sheffield and then went on to a Masters in Digital Media at Coventry. But his artistic journey doesn’€™t start there – He’€™s been creating since he was old enough to pick stuff up and, even from a very young age, was never in doubt that his future lay in the creative industries. Right he was, too, since uberkraaft now works as Creative Director in a boutique design agen

How to Break Out of a Creative Rut


Image Credit: When all else fails – tee design by Simon Reeves

Whether you’€™ve been drawing on walls since you were a kid or recently cracked open your first sketchbook, there comes a time in every artist’€™s life when you feel stuck in a creative rut.
 

In fact, we’€™ve been feeling a bit stuck ourselves lately. And after a slew of unproductive activities including but not limited to rewatching all four seasons of Breaking Bad (twice) and one too many unsuccessful attempts at one-man foosball, we decided to do something about it. We finally got off our behinds and started looking for ways to unstick our creativity. It would be mean of us to keep these tips to ourselves. So the next time you’€™re itching for a burst of creativity to inspire a new design or illustration, look no further th
