"Keep Portland Weird," they say over in that not-too-far-off Pacific Northwest city, and tattooist Winston the Whale has risen to the challenge. Winston's work is psychedelic, finely-lined, and full of overlapping metaphors and motifs, and we are so in love. He got his start a little over a year and a half ago, via stick and poking his friends out of his apartment. A talented draftsmen and multi-faceted artist, Winston's calendar quickly filled up.
Winston's work is unique, but draws heavily upon classic 1960's and 1970's illustration work. Take a glance at any of the original covers for Kurt Vonnegut's novels, or snag yourself a VHS of The Beatles' 1968 animated classic Yellow Submarine, and you'll see some of Winston's influences.
Groove on over to Winston the Whale's Instagram for more supercool work. He works out of a private studio, and his calendar is all booked up, but a follow on his social media will keep you posted of his availability.
