Default for people seeking apprenticeships

Firstly, take a look at these drawings .......








These were done by a young lady on this forum.
She's quiet, humble and would love an apprenticeship.
She doesn't whine like a four year old or endlessly tell everyone that she has a "really strong portfolio".
If I wanted/had room/time for an apprentice at the moment she would be the top of my list.

Now, study the pictures I've posted and then go look at your own artwork. How does it compare?

Do you have felt tip rose outlines, a wobbly koi on a scrap of paper, childlike attempts at traditional designs on lined writing paper copied from last months tattoo magazines?

Once you've compared your artwork to the pictures I've posted, ask yourself ... if SHE's looking for an apprenticeship then why do YOU deserve one?

amen to that big daddy! ...I'm so gonna call you that from now on

I would dearly love to see Kara tattooing. Kara stuck with us all weekend for the freeze gallery... even when it got a bit boring... and never complained once. She came organised with beautifully presented artwork and a selection of postcards with her art and details printed on. ...I'm still not convinced you don't need this little lady in your studio Nigel.... sorry, Big Daddy <chuckles happily>

I really hope that changes at some point, you would be the perfect mentor for Kara.

She is an amazing artist and I fully expect her to be an amazing tattooer one day, but she needs to learn from the right person

Plus having seen the top one in the flesh, the pics dont do them justice at all, they are even better than this.

What's her tea-making skills like though!? :P

Nah, in all seriousness she is immense, kinda puts my shitty black lined roses and Satanic/Masonic nonsense to shame! I think I should take something from this and do more fine art style stuff every now and again... after cracking on with more Japanese style stuff anyway.
