He’s been drawing his whole life and recently gave up his job to do artwork such as drawing and tattooing full time. Giving up the security of employment, might be risky, but sometimes, you just need to follow your dreams and Lewis has done exactly that. He recalls first knowing he liked to draw around 4 years old, he commented:

“I remember first copying a Ghostbuster character from a tray I had as a kid and my mam looking at it quite shocked, I was around 4 I think”

Having been drawing for over 28 years he now is at a point where he enjoys drawing realism. Eyes, tigers, plus music artists like Notorious B.I.G. Eazy E, and some of his older work that includes Bob Marley.

“My favourite at the moment is realism. I love spending hours and hours on a drawing and seeing the results once it’s nearly finished. But there’s other styles I want to try.”

“Pop culture characters are an interest. They’ll get an artist a lot of exposure. I don’t really have any favourite characters. I just have a few favourite pieces. The ones I feel I learned the most from. Like the tiger and eye I drew.”

Lewis now works as an apprentice at the highly regarded Chimera Tattoo parlour based in Barry, but tattooing is not as easy it seems.

“I decided to do this full time because I hated my job and had to do something else. The tattooing is going well. But the thing that a lot of people don’t realise is that tattooing is hard. Very hard. It’s not something you can learn over night. You have to spend a lot of time learning. It’s completely different from drawing. Just because you can draw doesn’t mean you can tattoo. You have to relearn on a whole new medium.”

Lewis is certainly going places and we’ll be keeping an eye on all of his work going forward. He is also available for commissioned work, just contact him on his facebook page.
