My name is Rosie Quinn Harley (Yes that is my real name ;] ) ! I don't exactly know what to write about myself but here goes nothing! I love love LOVE art! I have such a passion for it, I live, breathe and think art! I'm constantly studying other artists styles ad pushing myself to do better, any other artist is an inspiration to me ^_^ My favorite artists in the whole world are: Brom, Jhonen Vasquez, Yoshitaka Amano and Roman Dirge.
Other things I love are:
Animation! I love cartoons of all types! I think the animation that really grips me the most is 'Tekkonkinkreet' made by Studio 4°C. The animation is purely astounding! I don't think there's anything else like it. I also love animations like 'The Secret Of Kells' as the animation is very heavily Shape based, I really love the way the team have fit a whole character inside a square and enjoy the way they make that character move etc.
Horror! I am a HUGE Horror movie fan! Mainly for creative purposes, I love the thought that goes into each monster. How does it move? Why does it move that way? What shape will it be? What sounds shall it make? Whats its story? Does it just enjoy killing or is it looking for revenge? What will it use to kill? Does it have a weapon? Does it have claws? Etc. Each of these things goes into WHY that monster scares you, for example the monster in 'The Grudge' scares me because of the way she moves, the sounds she makes and the situations she appears in. :)
Comics! I have an enormous Comic/Graphic Novel Collection! This is again, to aid my artistic skills, I love finding really obscure comics with awesome art work, just to study technique (I mean of course I read them as well because they rock!). I would highly recommend ANY of Ben Templesmith's Comics (Mainly Wormwood: Gentlemen Corpse), 'Johnny The Homicidal Maniac' by Jhonen Vasquez and the 'Batman Lobo' crossover (DC).
And finally Cooking! Bet you didn't see that coming! I really enjoy cooking, I dont care how challenging or long a recipe is, If I want to try that dish, I will make it! I think so far I really like making Dolma and Beef Casserole ^_^
I've only just embarked on my journey into the Tattoo industry, but I hope that with time and hard work, i'll get a permanent role somewhere in the world ^_^ I've really enjoyed working with the Teams i've been with this year, I've made loads of new friends who're all really lovely! And I can't wait to make more new friends with the same passion as me ^__^
I hope you enjoy my art work and please feel free to look at my Portfolio as listed!
