It’s summertime and that means that the shop is bustling. Phuc’s been working like a madman on all sorts of projects which has left little time for him to entertain everyone out there in cyberspace with his witty repartee. He’s been saving up all sorts of thoughts and photos to share with you, but sadly he hasn’t been able to find the time to write a proper entry.

And that’s where I come in.

I’ve decided to take the bull by the horns, and give you a sneak peek at some of the projects he’s been working on the last few weeks. As for the witty repartee? Well, that will just have to wait for the professional.

The first image is of a Mucha-inspired pirate girl.

Pirate Girl

She’s got that great Mucha flow and beauty, and yet I definitely get the sense that she’s tough. I suppose the skull in her hand has something to do with that. Let’s just say, in a Jersey bar fight between JWoww and Pirate Girl, I’d put my money on Pirate Girl.

The next piece is actually from last fall, but its owner came by the shop for more work this summer, so Phuc finally had the opportunity to take a photo.

I don’t often mention clients by name in cyberspace, but I think it’s okay to say that this tattoo is on Charles Parker Newton and the image is of his grandmother. She looks very sweet, doesn’t she? The reason I think it’s okay to “out” P-Newts is that he’s got quite a cyber-presence of his own already – check out this example of his work.

At the end of June, Phuc started a sleeve on a client from Cambridge, and I really wanted to post an image of it because (a) it’s a really cool piece, and (b) the subject matter was something I’d never heard of:  Baku. Unfortunately, I don’t think Phuc remembered to take any in-progress pictures. However, I did manage to get a quick shot from his sketchbook:

I love the flow in this image, and I also think the Baku legend is pretty bitchin’ – kind of an anteater for your dreams.

Phuc also started and finished a classic dragon piece in July. I really dig the hilt (no sexy).

Here’s another work-in-progress photo:

This geisha is a part of a much larger sleeve project. I couldn’t resist sharing it – I love the textile patterns that Phuc chose for her. He’s always had such great taste in clothes!

Okay, that’s all the news that’s fit to print for now. I hope all of you kids out there are having a blast this summer!

xo,
