Sullen Artist Alessandro Modesti | ‘Modesti Badge’ | Spring 2015

Alessandro Modesti is one of Sullen Clothing‘s extended family members, based all the way over in Civitavecchia, Italy  (we’re still working on figuring out this pronunciation). He currently works out of Family Affair Tattoo Studio and continues to paint when he can find time away from tattooing. Alessandro claims himself as a ‘realism addict’ and you can tell this to be the case through his various tattoos and paintings.

One of Alessandro‘s Sullen Badge designs popped up on Sullen Owner’s Jeremy Hanna & Ryan Smith’s radar and they both knew it would make a killer design for a tee. After everything was finalized they made the decision to launch Alessandro’s ‘Modesti Badge’ as part of our Spring 2015 collection.

When we sat down to talk with Alessandro about his design and experience working with Sullen Clothing, here’s what he had to say.

Sullen: Where did inspiration stem from for your new design ‘Modesti Badge’?

Alessandro: Realism is the style I like most, so I’ve tried to rearrange the Sullen Logo in a realistic key. I also wanted to add in some elements that characterize my personal style, including: barbed wire, blood, and tears. Each of these elements often appear on my paintings, if not just one then a few together.

Sullen: What about this design are you most proud of?

Alessandro: I’m very self critical of my own work and once I look back on something I’ve completed, I still always doubt the results of my work. The first time I saw my original work on a Sullen tee I received a lot of positive feedback from many people. Hearing their feedback helped change my mind about this piece and my work overall. I’m really satisfied with my job now.

Sullen: What did you struggle most with when creating this new design?

Alessandro: Creating a strong visual impact is sometimes hard for me. That and trying to avoid making a mess and keeping my composition clean are usually the most difficult for me.

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

Alessandro: My relationship with Sullen Clothing actually started on Instagram after I saw Sullen Clothing post a few of my paintings. After that Jeremy and Ryan contacted me asking for my permission to use one of my paintings as a design for a Sullen Badge Tee for their Spring 2015 Collection. Of course I said yes! Since then I’ve designed one other shirt for Sullen Clothing called, ‘Octoskull’. What can I say, it’s an honor for me as a self-taught artist to be accepted into the Sullen Family, who’s made up of the best painters and tattoo artists across the world.

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

Alessandro: First of all I hope to keep collaborating with Sullen Clothing throughout this year. I would like to thank Jeremy and Ryan from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity they’ve given me. I also started tattooing at Family Affair Tattoo Studio a few months ago under my brothers guidance. Thank you GianLuca for your daily and continued support. I hope to get a chance to meet and collaborate with some of the artists that have inspired my works. Other than that I just want to try and get better every day.

We look forward to seeing Alessandro‘s future works as he progresses as an artist, and hope that he will continue to create badass designs for us for many seasons to come. Thank you Alessandro for the art you’ve allowed us work with thus far, and for being a part of the Sullen Family.

We hope you all enjoy these progress shots of Alessandro’s creative process for his design, ‘Modesti Badge’

Sullen Artist Juan Garcia | Exclusive ‘Diamonds & Stones’ Interview

Juan Garcia is a Tattoo Artist & Shop Owner at Art of War Tattoo Parlor located in Moreno Valley, CA. Juan has been tattooing professionally for the past eight years. His career originally started when he was living down in Mexico City for some time until about five years ago when he made the decision to move up to California full time. Since then, he’s been steady working & building his portfolio.

Juan’s FIRST design with Sullen Clothing, Diamonds & Stones, is a design unlike anything we’ve had before. When we had a chance to talk with Juan about the inspiration behind this design, he helped put his unique style into perspective for us.

DiamondsAndStones DiamondsAndStones_back

Sullen: Where did inspiration stem from for your new design ‘Diamond and Stones’?

Juan: At the time of this design I was focused on studying skulls. I usually pick one subject matter I would like to improve on and sketch or draw different versions. This way I’m able to enhance my style or develop my own way of attacking the subject matter. In this case it was skulls, and of course everyone loves skulls. I decided to put a classic yet classy twist to this design. I figured what better way to represent this than a Top Hat?! I added the brushes instead of the classic crossbones to keep in line with the ‘art-driven’ theme. The quote ‘Some days are Diamonds, and other days are Stones’ was also added to the final print. And all that helped create my final piece.

Sullen: What about this design are you most proud of?

Juan: Simple! Sullen decided it was good enough for one of their collections! Enough said!

Sullen: What did you struggle most with when creating this new design?

Juan: I think my only struggle was to not go WAY over the top with this design. Us artists know that we often and easily get carried away and just do too much! (I’m super guilty of that). Some designs are meant for canvas and others for body art. In this case it was designed for a t-shirt, and I tried my best to make the design accordingly.

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

Juan: I’m new with Sullen, this is actually my first design with them, but doing a shirt with them has been on my goal list for a while! I’ve always admired the supportiveness of the company to their artists and how important Sullen is within the tattoo industry. From getting artists recognized to giving back to the community, Sullen and the Sullen Art Collective are true assets to what professional tattooing has developed into and where it’s going. To be a part of that makes me VERY proud!

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

Juan: In 2015 I’m looking forward to just enjoying my career and creating better pieces of art. These past few years I’ve been tattooing almost every day and working long hours. We all strive for success and work towards it daily so to be walking down the street and see my design on a Sullen shirt someone else is wearing is the biggest reminder that my efforts are paying off. At the end of the day all I’ve wanted to do is tattoo, and I truly love what I do. For this I’d like to thank Sullen Clothing for recognizing and accepting me into such an important movement.

A special thanks to Juan for setting some time aside out of his busy schedule to answer our questions and most importantly, for designing the new ‘Diamonds & Stones’ Tee. We look forward to working with you again soon Juan!

Sullen Artist Interview | David Garcia | ‘Love Affair’ & ‘Muerta Rose’

It’s pretty unreal to think that David Garcia has only been tattooing professionally since 2012. Guys… that’s less than three damn years. But in this short amount of time, David’s art has captured the attention of artists & collectors across the globe. He is currently an illustrator and tattooer out of TattooArtGallery in Tenerife, Spain.

To say that we’re humbled to have had the opportunity to work with David on not one BUT two designs, ‘Love Affair & ‘Muerta Rose‘, for our Spring 2015 collection might be an understatement. These might not even be the only two we have, just the two that are currently available!

Love Affair PS2 Love Affair PS

Muerta Rose PS2 Muerta Rose PS

Although we wish we’d had the opportunity to sit down with David face to face, we were privileged enough to pluck his brain just a little bit about ‘Love Affair‘ & ‘Muerta Rose‘.

Sullen: Where did inspiration stem from for your new designs ‘Love Affair‘ & ‘Muerta Rose’?

David: The two designs were made for clients at my tattoo studio, TattooArtGallery in Spain. At that time I likes having references of many photographs, magazines, and models. Both of these designs were created last year. I like the originality and always wanted to have a unique style.

Sullen: What about these designs are you most proud of?

David: If you’re referring to all of my designs with Sullen Clothing, I’d say I’m most proud overall of the Natural Beauty design. This design was also originally done as a tattoo. I loved the end result of the tattoo and the shirt. It was one of the most difficult designs I had done at the time.

Sullen: What did you struggle most with when creating this new design?

David: The most hard to draw are always the hands and proportioning them to the rest of the body, so I decided to use a reference of hands. All of my designs start from my own photographs or sketches. I usually like to use my wife for reference photographs.

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

David: I’m very proud to work with Sullen Clothing. They highly value my work, and it helps me get better every day. It’s a privilege to be part of the Sullen Family.

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

David: I’m an illustrator and a publicist. I’m researching for designs that will create a better finish on the fabric Sullen uses for their merchandise. I want the design to be more attractive to Sullen’s customers. In the future I’d like to make exclusive designs for Sullen. Unique designs created specifically for clothing that haven’t been published as tattoos first. I’m also planning a trip to California in June to guest spot in a tattoo studio and participate in a convention. I’m very grateful to Ryan Smith for giving me the opportunity to work with SullenClothing.

Hearing that David is interested in designing exclusively for Sullen was extremely humbling for everyone here at Sullen, especially for our Co-Owner and Art Director Ryan Smith

David was awesome enough to send us a progress shot of him originally creating the Muerta Rose design.

Tattoo Artist and Shop owner Rob Struven is one busy man. Between running his shop, tattooing at his shop, being a family man, a husband & designing shirts for us- he STILL let us bug the shit out of him for answers to some questions & pictures of the creative process behind his new design for our Spring 2015 collection, ‘Copper Rose‘ (click to purchase tee).

Yea, yea… we’re lucky, we know.

copper rose

Sullen: Where did inspiration stem from for your new design ‘Copper Rose’?

Rob: I’d say my inspiration for all my paintings comes from my love and passion for cars and car culture. I know a lot about cars and car parts so I paint what I know if you will. I also really enjoy painting skulls.

Sullen: What did you struggle most with when creating this new design?

Rob: For me finding time to paint is always a struggle. Juggling my shop, work, my family and everything else that life throws my way makes it difficult to simply find the time to paint.

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

Rob: My experience working with Sullen has been really cool. There are so many talented artists in the Sullen Family and I’m always really stoked and honored to be a part of it! The companies start, background and owners are inspirational too. It’s not often you find a company that is still filled with humble people. People that are still stoked on what they do and stoked to go to work every day. Most importantly, they’re grateful for what they have.

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

Rob: I’m looking forward to doing more Sullen shirts, more art shows, getting better at my craft and being as productive as possible!

Thank you Rob for dedicating your time to design for Sullen and answer our questions. We look forward to collaborating with you for many years to come!

Ryan Marquez never suspected that his design would land him a spot in the Sullen Family. We don’t want to give too much away right off the bat, but let’s just say we’re stoked that things turned out the way they did with Ryan Marquez and his new design ‘RM Script‘.

RM Script

Here’s what Ryan had to say about his unexpected journey into the Sullen Art Collective:

Sullen: Where did inspiration stem from for your new design ‘RM Script’?

Ryan: The original sketch I did was actually for the Norm X Sullen Lettering Contest, so I created this script. All in all I got most of my inspiration from the letterheads I look up to: BJ Betts, Norm and Big Meas just to name a few.

Sullen: What about this design are you most proud of?

Ryan: I’m really stoked on the fact that my design made the cut. I was hyped that I was doing something for Sullen, the company that a lot of letterheads I look up to worked with.

Sullen: What did you struggle most with when creating this new design?

Ryan: It really wasn’t difficult at all. I was just sitting at my dining room table when I saw the Norm X Sullen contest post on Instagram and jumped right to it. Ryan Smith saw some potential in my design so he and I got to rappin’ and that’s how it happened… so to speak.

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

Ryan: Very easygoing!

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

Ryan: I look forward to doing more projects with Sullen, traveling and creating a lot more art and tattoos

We had the pleasure of working with Travis Greenough for the first time this past year. Co-Owner and Creative Director Ryan Smith had a great experience working closely with Travis on his new Spring 2015 design we like to call, the Brinkster Badge.

Brinkster Solo Front Brinkster Solo Back

We’re thankful that Travis took some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions for us about the creative process behind the ‘Brinkster Badge‘ design. Keep reading to find out what he had to say…

Sullen: Where did inspiration stem from for your new design ‘Brinkster Badge’?

Travis: It’s hard for me to explain where inspiration comes from for most of my designs. I just kind of scribble until something hits me. Some artists have deep meanings to their work but I’m usually trying to aim for a design that looks “cool” to me and something I think will be “cool” to other people. However, I did want to ale this piece interesting by having contrast is structured  patterns extending from more organic shapes. I’m usually just aiming to make a striking design with dark or creepy imagery

Sullen: What about this design are you most proud of?

Travis: My favorite part of this design is its overall readability. There are several elements in this design and it can get really easy to confuse them all together. So I think the balance and composition is what I’m most proud of.

Sullen: What did you struggle most with when creating this new design?

Travis: The biggest struggle for me was how time consuming some of the architecture was. I tend to naturally be more loose with my art so whenever I add hard structured elements I tend to find myself frustrated with how much it slows me down. Although rewarding in the end, I find myself struggling through the process

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

Travis: Working with Sullen Clothing has been fantastic. Possibly the most professional and genuine companies I’ve had the pleasure of doing business with. I worked closely with Ryan Smith while creating this design and he was fantastic. I’m so happy to contribute to the Sullen Art Collective and look forward to working with them again.

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

Travis: In 2015 I’m really looking forward to trying to take my art to the next level. Having just opened Closed Casket Custom Tattoos I’ve created work space that’s comfortable and allows me more flexibility during my creative process. I’m always looking forward to the crazy art that is coming out of the tattoo industry. From people I’ve been following for years who reinvent themselves, to the new artists putting their new age spin on things. I love seeing all the different takes on tattooing and it’s something I’m definitely looking forward to.

Travis was cool enough to send us some shots he took during the creative process of the ‘Brinkster Badge‘. ENJOY!

We’ve had the pleasure of getting to work with Paolo Acuna many times over the years. One of his original designs for Sullen Clothing, the ACUNA BADGE, has become one of our core designs and we continue to carry it season after season. We’re pretty stoked that Paolo created a new design (Art for the Soul) for us for the Spring 2015 season.

Art For the Soul2

When we had a chance to sit down with Paolo to talk about his recent design, we were pretty flattered to hear what he had to say-

Sullen: Where did inspiration stem from for your new design ‘Art for the Soul’?

Paolo: Inspiration for ‘Art for the Soul’ originally came from my painting titled ‘Art From the Heart’. I created this painting a few years ago when I was asked to participate in Sullen’s Art Driven art show. This show included an amazing group of artists that were chosen by Sullen. The theme was based around what drives us as artists. And it turns out my interpretation was a beautiful woman holding paint brushes close to her heart. Almost as though she was praying or meditating with the paint brushes. I guess my art serves as a form of prayer or meditation for my life.

Sullen: What about this design are you most proud of?

Paolo: I suppose I’m most proud of the expression on the models face and the way in which I painted her. I spent a great deal of time preparing the canvas beforehand. Layering the face many times, I worked really hard to get the expression just right in order to really show her love and passion for the art.

Sullen: What did you struggle most with when creating this new design?

Paolo: I struggled most with the models hands on this painting. As is usually the case, hands in art are very difficult. In this particular painting, the subject is holding 9 paint brushes which made it that much more challenging to create. This was definitely fun to paint but was challenging to make it read well without being too technical.

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

Paolo: This is my 4th shirt with Sullen Clothing, and I’m SO stoked! I feel really fortunate to be working with Sullen. The exposure has been awesome and so has being a part of such a cool company. Sullen truly seeks out great artwork and artists. It’s a true honor to work with them all. I hope to create more images that Sullen uses in its lineup. I’d also enjoy getting to participate in Sullen events. Thank you again to everyone at Sullen Clothing.

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most in 2015?

Paolo: I feel very optimistic about 2015. I have many irons in the fire and so many art projects that I plan to get to. I’m definitely looking forward to everything this year has in store for me and for every experience it will bring!

Sullen Artist Interview | Chris Herrera | ‘Herrera Badge’ | Spring 2015

Chris Herrera is among the many talented artists Sullen Clothing has had the pleasure of working with over the last 14 years. Originally serving in the U.S. Navy, Chris separated from that career early on in order to pursue his love for art. Many years later, he’s continued to succeed as an artist specializing in traditional pencil and pen art. Based in New York- Chris sells his original works, prints of his originals, and is open to taking commissioned work at ChrisHerreraArt.Com

We were lucky enough to recently get a chance to pick Chris’s brain about his new design for Sullen- The “Herrera Badge”. Here’s what he had to say:

Sullen: Chris, where did inspiration stem from for your new design- “Herrera Badge”

Chris: As you can see from my other drawings, I love realism. Ryan (Sullen Clothing Co-Owner and Creative Director) approached me and said he’d like me to do a realistic version of the Sullen Logo. A good friend of mine (IG: @Pdudes_Arts) who is a great photographer took some shots of one of his skull and brushes designs and sent it to me. The one I chose was my favorite due to the light illuminating from the skull. I loved the feel of it. I was really excited to see it on a Tee.

Sullen: What about the design are you most proud of?

Chris: I am EXTREMELY proud of the amount of detail that I was able to put into this design. I enjoy putting little details that a lot of people tend to overlook.

Sullen: What did you struggle with most when creating the “Herrera Badge”

Chris: It took me a little over 100 hours to complete this design. That is the longest I’ve ever spent on a single drawing. That being said, it was hard to keep myself interested in getting it done. 100 hours requires a lot of patience! It helps having other drawings on the side so that I can come back to the design with a fresh view.

Sullen: Tell us a little about your experience working with Sullen Clothing & the Sullen Art Collective

Chris: Sullen was great to work with! Ryan gave me a lot of freedom with this piece, which was great. I love drawing skulls so this worked out perfectly (haha). I hope I can continue to create designs for Sullen.

Sullen: What are you looking forward to most about 2015?

Chris: This year I am honestly just trying to get my work into group shows and exhibitions. I want people to see my work and in person because seeing them online just doesn’t do them justice. A lot of the details get lost in the pictures.

We’re stoked to celebrate Chris’s work for our Spring 2015 season. It was great getting a chance to work with him and hope we’ll have the opportunity to have him design for us again in the future.

Sullen Tv’s | ‘Under the Skin’ Interview with Tattoo Artist Ryan Smith- Pt.1

Smith Skin

Ryan Smith and Jeremy Hanna are the masterminds behind Sullen Clothing and the Sullen Art Collective. When they started the company together back in 2001, Jeremy and Smith (as he’s known around Sullen HQ) knew they wanted to create their own path. They didn’t want your typical 9-5 job, or to work under someone else. They were determined to make a career out of their own ideas & aspirations.

In Pt.1 of ‘Under the Skin’ Smith explains how Sullen Clothing started in a small apartment in downtown Huntington Beach, California. In between working 2-3 jobs, Smith would spend his nights creating new designs for Sullen merchandise. For about the first five years, Smith says that they had no idea what direction they’d take the company. They struggled to find their identity as Sullen Clothing. It wasn’t until they started attending tattoo conventions that Jeremy & Smith found a connection to a specific target demographic. Tattooers, people who enjoy getting tattooed, and most importantly; tattoo art. They knew this was where they belonged. After five years of doing it wrong, Jeremy and Smith knew they now had it right.

Watch the full ‘Under the Skin’ Pt.1 Interview HERE to find out how Jeremy and Smith brought so much success to the brand Sullen Clothing, learn about Smith’s tattoo career- beginning with his apprenticeships, see how Artist Big Gus and Smith’s friendship began, and discover what life threatening event changed Jeremy and Smith forever.
